Atraumatic tooth extraction
At our dental clinic, we perform atraumatic tooth extraction using the achievements of microsurgery. This method gains particular importance before the implantation procedure. The extraction is carried out to minimize tissue disturbance, maximally protect bones, and not damage the alveolar process. During the procedure, the dentist uses a microscope, thanks to which he achieves extraordinary accuracy. As a result, postoperative wounds are smaller than after classical extraction, they heal faster, and the appropriate aesthetics are maintained.
In the case of bone atrophy, augmentation, i.e., bone reconstruction, should be performed. Augmentation is often used in implantology and makes the implantation procedure successful. The following reconstruction methods are used: controlled bone regeneration and raising the bottom of the maxillary sinus.
Controlled bone regeneration
Controlled bone regeneration uses bone-forming and bone substitute preparations. These build the basis for the bone tissue to regenerate and replenish the bone defect. The surgeon cuts the gum and exposes the bone, and then applies the bone-forming material in the right place. He or she puts on a membrane, which protects this place during the regeneration process. When the bone is reconstructed, the treatment area is reopened and covered with the gingiva.
Lifting the jawbone bottom
Another procedure performed before the implantation is to lift the bottom of the maxillary sinus. It separates the sinuses above the upper teeth from the tooth roots. In this case, the bone-forming material is placed between the sinus floor and the alveolar bone boundary. This thickens the patient’s bone, in which the implant can be placed safely.
Surgical procedures also include the extraction of teeth, including the stuck eights. The tooth extraction is carried out under anesthesia, therefore the Patient does not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure (which is of short duration). The procedure is done using an X-ray. The dentist loosens the tooth in the alveolus, removes it, and then the place is sewn together. We always provide our Patients with detailed postoperative instructions.
Top of root resection
We also perform root tip resection in our dental clinic. The procedure is performed when the periapical lesions exceed 10 mm or when an inflammation has developed at the top of a dead tooth. The surgeon cuts the mucous membrane right at the apex, cuts out the sick fragment and bone window. Then it is necessary to fill the canal with a substitute material.
Maxillary and dental surgery
Dental surgery deals with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of pathologies within the oral cavity. In this field, treatments are usually associated with surgical removal of eights, implantation, cutting out the gingival hood, or frenulum undercutting in children. On the other hand, jaw surgery is a separate area of activity, which includes much more serious cases, such as surgical treatment of facial, oral, and cranial skeletal diseases. In the Titanium Dental Clinic in Gdańsk, all procedures are performed under local or general anesthesia. The comfort of our Patients is our priority!
Dental surgery also supports other areas of dentistry, such as prosthetics, implantology, periodontology, and endodontics (root canal treatment). The most common dental surgery procedure in our clinic in Gdańsk is extraction, i.e., removing a tooth. We also offer comprehensive services on the borderline between maxillofacial surgery and dental surgery.
Atraumatic tooth extraction
The treatment using the latest achievements of microsurgery consists of gentle removal of the tooth, with minimal damage to the gums and bone. Atraumatic tooth extraction is used quite often in dental surgery, while planning the implantation procedure. The dentist uses a microscope, which allows for extraordinary precision, which results in smaller and faster healing of postoperative wounds. The patient does not feel any pain, and the implantation is more superficial and gives a better aesthetic effect.
Augmentation – bone restoration
Bone augmentation is another dental surgery procedure performed in patients with bone atrophy. It is usually performed before the planned implantation or in case of periodontosis and periodontal diseases. This method consists of filling single defects of alveolar bone to increase its height and thickness. In this way, it is possible to apply a dental implant in a much wider group of patients. The most frequently used reconstruction methods in our clinic are controlled bone regeneration and raising the maxillary sinus’s bottom.
Controlled bone regeneration
Periodontal diseases (gingivitis and periodontitis) may lead to irreversible tissue loss and cause symptoms of the so-called periodontal pocket. The method of controlled bone regeneration consists of preparations bone-forming and bone-replacement scaffolds, with the help of which suitable “scaffolds” for regenerating bone tissue are created. The doctor cuts the gums and exposes the bone, and then applies the bone-forming material in the right place. Then he applies a membrane to protect this place during the regeneration process. Implantation is possible only in slight bone atrophy, in extreme cases, it is carried out only 6 – 9 months after the procedure.
Lifting the bottom of the maxillary sinus
The indication for this type of procedure is implant treatment in patients who have lost teeth in the lateral part of the jaw or have low sinuses. Depending on the jaw’s anatomical conditions, the procedure can be performed in two ways: open method and closed method. Each patient has different needs and anatomical conditions. For this purpose, we use extended diagnostics to offer an optimal and safe solution for dental and maxillofacial surgery.
Apex root resection
Suppose it is not possible to carry out the root canal treatment again. In that case, a surgical procedure is carried out consisting of cutting off the apex of the tooth root with the removal of inflammatory changes and securing the root. In most cases, this method saves the tooth from removal and prevents abscesses and cysts’ formation. Indications for resection are periapical lesions exceeding 10 mm, inflammatory lesions, and root fracture in the area of its apex. The whole procedure takes about 60 minutes. First, the surgeon cuts the mucous membrane in the apex region, cuts out the bone window, and removes the damaged root apex with a drill. Finally, he fills the canal with bone substitute material and stitches the wound resulting from the resection.
Surgical removal of wisdom teeth
Extraction of wisdom teeth, is carried out with the use of local anesthesia, thanks to which the Patient does not feel any pain or discomfort. Before the procedure, it is necessary to take an X-ray, which will assess the difficulties and eliminate the side effects. An indication for the eights’ surgical removal is the so-called bone retention of teeth, their abnormal growth, and the gums’ inflammation surrounding the wisdom teeth. They are most exposed to caries due to their distant location in the dental arch, making it much more difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene.
