Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is the treatment of surgical diseases in the oral cavity and the accompanying diseases in the maxillofacial area.

We offer the following services in this field:

1 Tooth and round-tooth tissues- periodontitis (acute or chronic), problematic toothing or absence of toothing

2 Diseases of the tooth propelling apparatus

3 Preparation of the jaws and the oral cavity for denture

4 Tooth and jaw cyst

5 Small tumours

6 Communication between oral cavity and upper jaw sinus.

7 Tooth autotransplants.

8 Certain stages of orthodontist treatment.

9 Surgical extraction of wisdom teeth with retinitis.

10 Soft tissue plastic surgery and soft tissue graft.

What are the implants?

Tooth implants are the best possible solution and in some cases the only one for the recovery of different defects in the tooth lines, they substitute lost teeth as well as their roots. They are implanted in the bone on the place of the lost teeth and bear the following characteristics:

– They are made of biologically – compatible material, which is well – received by the human organism.

– Their surface is rough, which creates favourable conditions for the strong bone integration.

– Their specific form allows strong hold and protects the bone from chewing pressure.

There is a conditional age limit – earliest age possible for implant cure is 18- 20 (i.e. patients for whom the growth and development are not yet over).

Tooth implants are appropriate when:

– You have lost one or more teeth. The implant is positioned in the empty space between the teeth thus avoiding the filing out of healthy adjacent teeth.

– You have large gaps between the existing teeth. The implants are put in these spaces and together with the existing teeth play the role of a basis for the denture –removable or fixed (bridge-work structure)

– Your jaws have reached their complete development.

– You maintain excellent oral hygiene.

– You are not willing or able to have a denture.

– You want to improve the quality of your speech or dream of having the perfect smile.

Complications which may arise:

– Incapability of the implant to integrate well with the jaw bone or damage of adjacent anatomic structures.

– Inflammation of the mucous membrane and/or the bone round the implant, which can lead to bone loss and probable implant loss. It is much more likely to occur with patients who are heavy smokers, who suffer from diabetes, patients with low oral cavity hygiene or in cases when the mucous membrane round the implant is too thin.

Implanting is carried out in two or more surgical procedures in the following order:

– Complex examination by a dentist. Sometimes X-ray or imprint-taking are necessary for implant analysis.

– A careful consideration is given to the number, type and size of implants and whether an additional surgical procedure (bone augmentation, sinus lifting etc.) is necessary. Future denture is also planned.

– It is compulsory to warn us about any diseases you suffer from and all the medication you take, if you are allergic to something or if you have been through any infectious diseases.

– To control the pain while implanting, the anaesthesia can be local, via sedation or general anaesthesia. It will be decided which one is best for you after thorough consultation.

Characteristics of zirconium implant:

– It is more aesthetic and allows the tooth reconstruction without metal.

– It is the only possibility for allergic patients.

– Zirconium implants possess good bio-compatibility.

– Zirconium is exceptionally resistant to damage and can hardly be deformed, which guarantees great stability in the long run.

– Zirconium implants are exceptionally sparing to soft tissues.

– It is not suitable for chewing teeth but is undoubtedly a good decision for front teeth.

– It lets light through – the transparency of zirconium favours the aesthetic and natural look of tooth corrections. These characteristics are further supported by the possibility for crown colouring with 16 different colour fluids.

– Without dark stripes.
