Surgical Dentistry

Basic surgical procedures in dentistry:

— procedures aimed at preserving the teeth:

— treatment of flux (periostitis) — inflammatory process of the periosteum;

— complete or partial removal of teeth, as well as wisdom teeth:

— various periodontal operations:

— plastic of the shortened frenulum of the tongue:

— splinting (pathological flaccidity or mobility of the dentition or single teeth):

— plastic of the shortened frenulum of the lip:

— use of implantation and associated with this procedure, osteoplastic and reconstructive interventions.

 

The main indications for the removal of teeth:

— destruction of the crown or subgingival part of the tooth, in which it is impossible to keep the tooth either by installing the seal or using orthopedics;

— Dystopic teeth (teeth that are not in their place);

— the tilt of the teeth or their extension, which interfere with prosthetics;

— fracture of the root of the tooth;

— difficulty access for treatment;

— impossibility or lack of root canal treatment;

— Periodontitis of severe degree.

Contraindications to the removal of teeth:

— recent myocardial infarction;

— acute viral respiratory infections (conditionally);

— stomatitis and other infections in the oral cavity (conditionally);

— mental illness in the acute stage.

 

Follow the doctor’s advice.

— After the removal of the tooth, try to refrain from eating for two hours, and try not to take hot food during the day.

— try not to take hot baths;

— brush your teeth the next day after the removal of the tooth;

— Try not to touch the hole with your tongue or, anyway, with any other objects.
