INTERVENTION, ORAL SURGERY
“If, despite everything, a piece fails, we clean the area of any trace of pathology.”
It is the act of extracting a tooth
There are two main types of exodontia:
Simple or surgical. Simple tooth extraction is used to remove teeth that are easily accessible, while surgical tooth extraction requires an incision in the connective tissue to access the tooth to be removed, this also affects extractions of included or unerupted teeth.
Minor oral surgery
They are simple treatments but require scalpel and sutures.
Among them: Frenectomy, is the treatment that seeks the total or partial elimination of the lip frenum to avoid the consequences that it generates, since it can alter the speech, the cleanliness and the aesthetics.
Frenectomy can be performed on both the upper and lower lip and lingual braces.
Elimination of cysts and apicectomies: this consists of the complete surgical removal of a small cyst with subsequent sealing of the wound. After cutting the mucus, the cystic sac is completely removed.
This operation can also be combined with a resection of the root end. The mucus is then sealed over the bone defect. If the cyst remains, new cysts can be formed.
Surgical preparation for implants
Replacement of the bone, so that it can house an implant.
Many times before the placement of implants it is necessary to prepare the bone where the implant will be placed, for example: bone grafting, placement of membranes, elevation of the maxillary sinus and many more techniques that the specialist carries out with the latest technology and advances in this field.
It is the branch of dentistry that treats gum diseases.
In healthy conditions, the gum adapts to the teeth and outlines them, it is coral pink, has a texture similar to orange peel and does not bleed. Bacteria are mainly responsible for periodontal diseases.
The most frequent pathologies are:
-Gingivitis: Characterised by bleeding gums.
-Periodontitis: The affectation is more serious, there is a destruction and loss of the tissues that support the teeth, such as the periodontal ligament, the alveolar bone and the gum.
Neither of these usually cause pain or other discomfort until they are in a very advanced state. The main symptoms that may indicate the need for periodontal treatment are: bleeding gums, tooth mobility, empty spaces between teeth, visualisation of tooth roots, bad taste in the mouth, sensitivity to cold, etc. .
The most effective tool to prevent these diseases is early diagnosis. It is recommended to have oral check-ups a couple of times a year and in case of presenting any of the mentioned symptoms visit the periodontist.
Oral hygiene and dental education.
Not only do we have to look after the teeth, we also have to take into account all the support tissues from the bone to the gums and ligaments.
Surgical periodontal treatment:
Periodontal surgery, mucogingival surgery, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, gum grafts, etc.
