Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialty that applies the necessary diagnosis and treatment methods for the correction of diseases, injuries and disorders of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth, teeth and jaw areas. Within the scope of the study;
- Normal and surgical extractions of teeth,
- embedded tooth extractions,
- Dental implants and zygomatic implant applications,
- Diagnosis and treatment of jaw cysts and tumors,
- Pre-prosthetic surgical corrections,
- Sinus floor elevation procedures,
- Bone thickening and elevation operations,
- Diagnosis, treatment and long-term follow-up of dental and supporting tissue injuries,
- Conservative and surgical treatments of jaw fractures,
- Orthognathic surgical operations (Jaw relationship disorders)
- Conservative and surgical treatments of jaw joint diseases,
Today, thanks to the development of science and technology and their contributions to dentistry, it is primarily aimed to treat and keep the tooth in the mouth. Tooth extraction is the process of removing the tooth from its socket called the socket in the bone.
Impacted Tooth Extraction
The reason why impacted wisdom teeth are a problem; evolutionarily, this tooth is no longer needed and our jaws are getting smaller and smaller. As our jaws get smaller, 20th-year-old teeth are forced to find a place for themselves and therefore cannot come out like other teeth. The 20th-year-old teeth, which cannot find a place for themselves, push the front tooth and press, which causes crowding. In addition, they can easily become inflamed because they are too far behind and the gingiva around them are not in the normal anatomical structure.
Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Corrections
Preprosthetic surgery is to complete the lost alveolar bone contours and correct the soft tissue, making the supporting tissues ideal before prosthesis construction. After preprosthetic surgery, it is desired to create an ideal oral environment suitable for prosthesis construction.
Bone Powders & Sinus Boost
bone powders, bone grafts Also called biocompatible materials. Bone powders are used to complete the bone tissue that has been lost for various reasons. These powders both accelerate the healing in the area and help increase the bone volume. Bone powders can be of animal or human origin or synthetic.
Sinuses are anatomical spaces between the cheekbones and the roots of the molars in the upper jaw. Sinusitis, known among the people, is the inflammation of these cavities.
The lower border of the sinuses may droop due to osteoporosis and retraction of the molars in the upper jaw. The decrease in bone height prevents implant placement in this area.
In the sinus lift procedure, bone powders are placed at the base of the sinus to increase the height of the bone and this area is made ready for implant application.
When sinus elevation and bone powder addition procedures are applied, 6 months are added to the waiting period for the implant to fuse with the bone.
