Impacted wisdom teeth

An impacted tooth is a tooth that has not grown and has not been placed in its place in the dentition, while a semi-impacted tooth is a tooth that has broken through the gums but cannot be fully placed in the dentition and thus performs its function.

What does an impacted and what a semi-impacted tooth mean?

An impacted tooth is a tooth that has not grown and has not been placed in its place in the dentition, while a semi-impacted tooth is a tooth that has broken through the gums but cannot be fully placed in the dentition and thus performs its function.

 

Why are impacted wisdom teeth removed and when?

Impacted wisdom teeth as the most common problem in young people during the eruption of these teeth (from 18 to 21 years) can cause discomfort, and sometimes even be the cause of severe infections.

 

If it is established on the images and during the clinical examination that there is no place for their emergence, it is suggested to remove them.

 

The ideal time to remove wisdom teeth is in the period when the growth of their roots has not yet been completed, and that is from the age of 15 to 18.

Cysts

What are dental cysts?

Cysts are pathological formations that occur in the jaws and soft tissues of the mouth. They are made up of a tissue sheath that is filled with cystic fluid

Cysts are discovered accidentally during dental imaging or when they become infected, so the patient reports to the dentist with pain. The most common are radicular, which appear around the tip of the tooth root, followed by follicular, which appear around the crown of the non-erupted tooth.  

 
How are dental cysts treated?

Cysts are treated surgically. The operation is performed under local anesthesia and is painless. Depending on the size of the cyst, cysts are sometimes removed in 2 acts. The first operation creates the conditions for rinsing the cyst in order to reduce it, and in the second act, after a few months, the cyst is completely removed.

Maxillary sinus

Sinuzitis

Maxillary sinus surgeries can be aimed at:

  • treatment of chronic sinusitis of tooth origin

  • treatment of sinus and oral cavity communication after tooth extraction

  • upper jaw bone ridge height correction (Sinuslift procedure)

Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses)

Sinusitis is a bacterial infection of the sinus cavity. Bacteria can enter the sinus cavity in 2 ways: through the nose or through the teeth. When we talk about sinusitis, we should know that there are 2 forms: acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis, which arises from acute if it is not cured adequately. If the infection is transmitted from the tooth to the sinus, we are talking about sinusitis originating from the tooth or dentogenic sinusitis.

How is chronic sinusitis of dentogenic origin treated?

It is first necessary to remove the causative tooth, followed by rinsing the sinuses until the symptoms subside so that the sinuses can be operated on. The operation is performed under local anesthesia and is painless. During the operation, only the chronically altered mucous membrane of the sinus is removed. The postoperative period lasts 2 weeks and is as important as the operation, so it is very important that the patient adheres to the instructions he receives from the doctor who operated on him.

Periodontal surgery

Periodontal surgery is a branch of dentistry that deals with the prevention and remediation of the consequences caused by periodontitis. 

What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis is an advanced chronic inflammation of the gingiva. It belongs to the most common diseases in general. Due to the presence of bacteria in dental plaque (plaque), inflammation develops which affects the supporting apparatus of the tooth, which is localized around the tooth root, and can also affect the surrounding bones.

How is periodontitis treated?

Periodontal treatment is carried out for several weeks. Even after the end of the therapy, you should keep in mind that there is an increased risk for the recurrence of gingival inflammation for the rest of your life.

INITIAL TREATMENT (HYGIENE PHASE)

The goal of the first treatment is to enable the calming of the inflammation of the gingival margin in order to prepare the conditions for later effective specific treatment of periodontitis. On that occasion, your dentist also performs professional teeth cleaning, which thoroughly removes all hard and soft deposits that are visible above the edge of the gingiva. In the next two weeks, it is necessary to master special techniques for cleaning the oral cavity and to rinse the oral cavity with disinfectants and thus prepare for specific treatment at home that will be prescribed by your dentist.

SPECIFIC TREATMENT OF PERIODONTOPATHY

An important component of therapy is the removal of plaque from the gingival pockets. The goal is to eliminate bacteria with plaque and toxic substances from the diseased pockets as much as possible. In addition, the disease-altered tissue from the gingival pockets is also removed, in order to provide optimal preconditions for successful treatment. This therapy is performed with special instruments under local anesthesia.

The presence of especially deep pockets or unfavorable anatomical relations is possible, which makes complete treatment difficult. In such cases, it may be necessary to clean the diseased surfaces of the tooth root by applying surgical procedures on the periodontium.
