Dental surgery

Dental surgery is mainly associated with tooth extraction. Currently, dental surgery involves a number of procedures in the oral area and it allows the maintenance of teeth affected by pathogenic processes. Our specialists not only efficiently remove teeth, but also correct the shape and size of the gums and supplement bone deficiencies (bone reconstruction).

The most often performed procedures in dental surgery are tooth extractions or undercutting of the frenulum. However, our surgeons, in addition to removing teeth (including wisdom teeth), also deal with complicated procedures of bone reconstruction, sinus lifting, covering the gingival recession, cyst removal or surgical curettage.

At Luxdentic, all surgical procedures are performed under local anesthesia, which guarantees painless procedures. We rely on X-ray diagnostics, i.e. a tomographic, pantomographic (called a panoramic) or small X-ray.

What surgical procedures do we perform?

We offer our patients a full range of dental surgery procedures, including the most frequently performed extractions, i.e. removal of teeth that can not be saved in the course of conservative treatment and extractions of wisdom teeth.

In addition, our specialists also deal with the removal of detained, broken or unheated teeth, necessary for removal during the course of orthodontic or prosthetic treatment. They perform resections of the roots, which consists of cutting off the root top together with the surrounding change, bone tissue reconstruction (augmentation) or sinus lifting.

We also perform treatments such as:

  • covering the gingival recession,
  • correction of the gummy smile,
  • cyst removal,
  • removal of pathological changes on the cheek, lip, gum,
  • undercutting frenulum,
  • open curettage.

Report urgently to the dentist if you notice at least one of the following symptoms. It can be a problem with the eight. If this situation is not treated, the symptoms will increase and, consequently, serious complications and the risk of clearing the tooth of wisdom increases.

  • pain in the back of the jaw,
  • edema,
  • gums that are red or bleeding in this place,
  • increased body temperature,
  • bad breath,
  • strange taste in the mouth,
  • headaches,
  • swollen cheek.

Remember, that tooth extraction is the last resort and we make every effort at Luxdentic, using the latest developments in dentistry to prevent this.

Retained "eights"

Wisdom teeth most often appear between the age of 17 and 25. However, in some cases they eradicate partially or do not erupt at all. Then we call them “detained eights”. Such teeth are the cause of unpleasant complications and ailments.

Because it is very difficult to decide when to perform this unpleasant procedure, below we present the symptoms that should lead you to take it.

An indication to get rid of the retained eights are primarily orthodontic problems. It happens that the teeth of wisdom creep in other teeth, causing the deformation of the bite. In addition, retained third molars, located near the roots of an adjacent tooth, can cause their dislocation and resorption.

Wisdom teeth that have been stopped can also be accompanied by recurrent inflammation of the gums and extensive dental cysts, in extreme cases initiating the inflammation of the jaw bone.

Another, quite frequent complication of the detained episodes are severe, paroxysmal, usually long-lasting headaches associated with nausea, stool pressure and general malaise. Pain – often referred to by Patients as pulsing, blinding or circulating – can last from several hours to even 3 days, preventing normal functioning of the patient. Interestingly, the removal of the retained episode generally results in complete resolution of pain attacks.

How should you handle such situations? First of all, we take an X-ray image – preferably even before the tooth of wisdom starts to ache. The dentist will be able to assess whether the tooth is growing properly or not. If the eighth is going to grow sloping down the jaw, or to the inside of the mouth, and also if it is potentially trapped and limited by bone – you should think about the procedure as soon as possible.

Do not wait until the tooth starts to tease you badly, if the X-ray picture shows abnormalities, this situation will not improve, and will certainly worsen.
