Oral surgery

When it comes to certain interventions, success takes a highly qualified specialist with years of professional experience. Oral surgery and bone grafting are certainly among these.

You might need oral surgery when:

  • your missing teeth are replaced with implant-retained dental prostheses;
  • your bone structure is not strong enough to support implants, and bone grafting is an option;
  • root fragments remaining in your alveolus after an extraction need to be removed surgically;
  • your irregularly positioned teeth must be removed;
  • your underdeveloped, unerupted teeth must be removed;
  • your root ends are affected by non-healing degenerative conditions;
  • there is a need to treat wounds and inflammations within your oral cavity.

Feeling uncertain? This is natural and understandable. It takes a consultation with a specialist to fully map any dental problem you may have and to find the optimum solution. Depending on the findings, it may be enough to rely on a dentist, or, alternatively, you might need a specialist, an oral surgeon. The presence of an experienced oral surgeon also gives you the added reassurance that you get the best possible treatment plan for your dental problem.

With nearly 20 years of professional experience behind his back, the oral surgeon at our Szeged dentistry will do his best to answer all your questions and to find the optimum solution.

Why is it better to have an oral surgeon specialised in implantology place your dental implants?

Under current Hungarian legislation, dentists do not need to specialise as oral surgeons to perform dental implantation. However, for your own safety, it is a wise idea to undergo dental implantation under the hand of a specialist who has the professional qualifications to intervene immediately should any unexpected situation arise.

While dental implantation is considered simple routine surgery, routine may not always be enough. Panoramic radiographs and CT images give an accurate picture of the condition of your bone structure. Nonetheless, once the surgery site is opened up, the professional performing the operation may occasionally find that the implantation cannot be performed as originally planned, or that a supplementary procedure is also needed prior to implantation. For example, the patient’s bone structure may not have the thickness and density to ensure the stability of the implants. In such cases, there may be a need for bone grafting, an intervention that a qualified oral surgeon can perform right away, and then proceed with implantation as planned.

When do you need bone grafting?

Bone grafting is usually performed when the patient does not have enough healthy natural bone to support dental implants. Although this intervention requires a great degree of professional expertise, it is neither painful nor excessively demanding on the patient. Thanks to progress in the field of dental sciences, today’s artificial bone grafting materials help reduce the risk of the intervention.

You might need bone grafting when:

  • instead of removable dentures, you prefer to have implant-retained crowns in your upper and lower jaws, but you do not have sufficient bone matter to support the implants;
  • many years have already gone by since you lost your teeth and, as a result, the implants cannot be placed securely because of the reduced density, thickness, and height of your jaw bone;
  • the base of your sinus is too close to the surface of your top jaw bone and implantation can only be done after bone grafting and sinus floor augmentation;
  • you are of advanced age and the bone at the floor of your enlarged sinuses has become too thin. If a tooth needs to be extracted from this region, your sinus may open up and might need to be closed. Without bone grafting and sinus floor augmentation, your new implants would extend into your sinus and would not be sufficiently stable.

Root fragment removal to prevent focal infections

In the case of complicated extractions, the tip of the root may fracture and remain in the alveolus. As a potential infection focus, it should be surgically removed as soon as possible.

At our dentistry, we remove root fragments in three steps as follows:

  1. Local anaesthesia is applied to prevent you from feeling any pain.
  2. The root fragment is removed using special dental forceps and elevators.
  3. The surgery site is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and stitched with a suture.

Would you like to prevent your root fragment from causing an inflammation? Feel free to call our dentistry at +36 30 206 9532 for a consultation appointment!

Root end surgery to preserve your natural teeth

Sometimes it is impossible to clean the root canals of a tooth in their full length; for example, the file may not reach all the way to the tip of the root if the root is bent. As a result, chronic inflammation may develop near the root end of the root canalled tooth. Considered a dental focus, this inflammation may potentially lead to such chronic systemic diseases as arthritis, myocarditis, or hair loss.

If a tooth, after successful root canal treatment, continues to show symptoms, its root ends must be surgically removed. This is also called root resection.

At Dentha Dentistry Szeged, we perform root end surgery in three steps as follows:

  1. Local anaesthesia is applied to prevent you from feeling any pain.
  2. The root end is explored and surgically removed.
  3. The surgery site is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and stitched with a suture.

In order to guarantee your personal safety, we perform this intervention in our isolated maximum sterility operating room.

Are you uncertain whether your teeth have been root canalled appropriately? Call our dentistry at +36 30 206 9532 for a consultation appointment!

How about displaced or impacted wisdom teeth?

Displaced or growing but unerupted wisdom teeth that cause problems usually take minor surgery to remove. Performed under local anaesthesia, this intervention is also pain free. During the operation, oral surgeon Dr. Gábor Benedek makes an incision in your gum above the unerupted wisdom tooth and extracts it while ensuring that your adjacent teeth remain unaffected. Finally, in order to prevent any infection, he stitches up the wound with a suture, which will be removed after a healing period of seven days.
