We perform dental surgery of various types.

Extraction of teeth

We perform dental extraction or tooth removal of any degree of difficulty. We specialise in especially complicated extraction surgeries of wisdom teeth. You can read more on wisdom tooth surgery here. Dental extraction procedure is performed in the cases, where the tooth is severely damaged and cannot be treated or renewed. The decision of extraction is made after a thorough examination.

Eating and rinsing your mouth is prohibited for a couple of hours after extraction, and all recommendations of the dentist must be strictly followed.

Tooth extraction is performed under local anaesthesia. If you have tooth pain, double or triple the amount of anaesthesia may be required. Sometimes, upon the commencement of the procedure, the dentist separates the gum (gingival flap surgery), thus ensuring easier access to the tooth. There are cases, when the tooth must be divided or freed from the bone (osteotomy) to ensure the easier extraction thereof; in these cases, the dentist will use surgical bone cutters. The dentist uses special instruments to remove a damaged tooth and process the wound. If the wound is large, or a risk of excessive bleeding occurs, the wound is stitched.

Soft and hard tissue augmentations

Augmentation is tissue volume increasing surgery that is usually performed prior to dental implant insertion. Bone augmentation is required, if the tooth was lost a long time ago and atrophy (loss) of bone tissue has occurred, as well as after complicated tooth extractions and extensive inflammation processes in the bone that have led to a reduction in bone volume.

In the event where the bone volume is insufficient for implantation, the physician decides on vertical or horizontal augmentation.

The augmentation of soft tissue is predominantly required for aesthetic purposes and is performed to ensure the natural appearance of gums around the prosthesis. Augmentation enables insertion of the implant and ensuring aesthetics in the areas, where the volume of bone and soft tissue is too low.

Implantation surgery

Implantation is surgery, during which an implant (a titanium screw) is driven into the jaw bone. The procedure is required, if the patient has lost a tooth or several teeth. Implant-mounted prostheses are easy to care for and practically indiscernible from natural teeth.

Usually, 4 visits are required for implant-mounted prosthetic surgery.

We work with the implants offered by global leaders of implant production. For more information on the procedure, click here.

Apicoectomy

This procedure is performed in the event of unsuccessful endodontic (root canal) therapy. Root end resection is the last attempt at saving your tooth. It is performed in single-root teeth and, in very rare cases in multiple-root teeth. Usually, root end resection is required after endodontic therapy in the tooth with large-scale bone damage (cyst or granuloma). If the root end resection is not performed promptly, the focus of infection in the bone increases and can result in purulent infection and the loss of teeth. The root end of the tooth, where the micro-organisms are reproducing and causing inflammation of the bone, is removed during the procedure.

Root end resection is performed under local anaesthesia. Initially, the surgeon separates the gum (gingival flap surgery), ensuring access to the jaw bone and dental root. The physician removes the root end and the cyst or granuloma, fills the empty space in the bone and the end of the root with biomaterials, and stitches the wound. For a few days after surgery, the patient will feel pain in the operation area, development of oedema is a characteristic response. It is important to observe all recommendations of the dentist and to care for the site of surgery carefully. The removal of stitches is performed in a week. X-Ray control is required half a year after the surgery.

Sinus lift surgery

Sinus lift operation is a surgical procedure that is used to ensure the required amount of bone tissue, when inserting implants in the area of maxillary molars and premolars. The physician separates the gum and fills ground bone particles of the patient or artificial bone particles in the maxillary sinus. Sufficient bone volume for the insertion of a dental implant is received as a result of the procedure. The procedure is usually traumatic and therefore is followed by pain and swelling during the post-surgical period. Antibacterial therapy is prescribed for the patient. Sometimes, dental implant insertion surgery can be performed during a sinus lift operation as well. However, a 9 month long healing period usually follows the sinus graft surgery, before an implant is inserted.

Periodontal surgery

Periodontal (tooth surrounding tissue) operations ensure the restoration of aesthetics and help retain the teeth of the patient. Periodontal surgery is performed in the event of the development of gingival and dental pockets, as well as gingival recession (receding gums). The procedures are micro-surgical. Sometimes grafting of the patient’s own tissue or artificial tissue is required to close the defects.

Micro-surgical procedures

Micro-surgical procedures are surgical manipulations of a minor scale performed in the oral cavity. Root end resection, periodontal surgery, clinical extension of the crown, lip and tongue tie surgeries belong to micro-surgical procedures.

Surgery of mucous membrane lesions

Sometimes, lip and tongue ties interfere with function and aesthetics. In these cases we perform minor surgeries aimed at the reduction of their volume. The procedures are quick and painless, the post-surgical period is uncomplicated.

Sometimes the ducts of small salivary glands are obstructed, as a result of which a “pouch” appears in the oral cavity.

These are removed by means of a simple surgical procedure. Before dental prosthetic surgery, the reduction of bone processes or the volume of soft tissue may be required, which will help the prosthesis to be better fixed in the oral cavity. These procedures are usually performed in the event of removable prostheses, if doubts arise regarding their attachment to the mucous membrane of the oral cavity.
