WHAT IS INCLUDED?
- Extraction of teeth (simple, complex, atypical) and roots
- Soft tissue management/ perio-surgery/ soft tissue surgery
- Bone grafting/ Sinus lift
Surgical procedures are performed with the use of modern anaesthetics. For best results, we use optical instruments and microscope.
We will not extract the tooth until we make sure it cannot be saved. Some of the cases when it cannot be avoided: Tooth decay, chronic infections, gum diseases at late stages of development, a threat to other teeth or malocclusion. There are 3 levels of removal (simple, complex, atypical).
SIMPLE TOOTH EXTRACTION
The easiest and the fastest. This category is for teeth which have already erupted, periodontal teeth (with severe loss of bone). On the average, this procedure takes 20-40 minutes and post-operative phase tends to pass quietly and comfortably. In the first three days after the surgical procedure, patients may notice a slight discomfort.
COMPLICATED TOOTH EXTRACTION
This includes teeth which have not completely erupted into the mouth, "slightly leaning" wisdom teeth. For extraction of such teeth, additional surgical procedures are required which open access to the tooth. In average, this procedure takes 60-90 minutes. Post-operational recovery is accompanied by a slight swelling in the area of extraction. The patients are prescribed painkillers during the period of swollenness.
ATYPICAL TOOTH EXTRACTION
This includes teeth that have not erupted, are surrounded by bone on all sides, wisdom teeth “lying horizontally” or placed close to the nerve of the lower jaw. These are also wisdom teeth in children age and those contacting with a maxillary sinus (the Highmore). For more precise diagnostics, an additional 3D x-ray is conducted. During this procedure, doctors work with optical instruments (on the upper jaw) or with microscope (lower jaw).
