What Dental Surgery Includes?
Impacted teeth have to be removed surgically when they are in a position to cause pain, infection, damage to neighboring tissues or in the presence of pathology detected clinically and radiologically in the area where they are located. If cysts and tumors are detected clinically and radiologically in the jawbone and soft tissues, they should be surgically removed as they will cause damage to the adjacent anatomical structures of the jawbone.
In the presence of bone irregularity and/or abnormally developed soft tissues before prosthesis construction in areas where tooth extraction was performed for any reason; existing bone disorder should be eliminated and/or abnormally developed soft tissues should be removed. Lesions with a size not exceeding 1/3 of the tooth root, which are formed as a result of infection at the root tips of the teeth, should be removed with a procedure called “root tip resection” after the decision to keep the tooth in the mouth.
Accidents, fights, falls, sports injuries, various bone diseases, etc. Jaw fractures caused by various reasons should be treated as soon as possible in order to regain function and aesthetics and to prevent possible infections. Jaw deformities caused by various syndromes or trauma should be treated with the consent of the patient if they cause functional problems in the patient.
In case of aesthetic problems, the treatment depends on the patient’s request. The above-mentioned procedures can usually be performed under local anesthesia conscious sedation or, if necessary, under general anesthesia. Since general anesthesia and sedation applications will be carried out by anesthesiology physicians, information on relevant issues will be made by the subject specialist.
