Oral surgery

This is the surgical field of dentistry that includes diagnosis and treatments relating to an extensive range of diseases, injuries and aesthetical aspects of the teeth and mouth.

  • Complicated extractions

Extractions can be complicated depending on the general health of patients (coagulation or hypertensive disorder, among others) or on the anatomical difficulties of the particular tooth. In these cases, the surgical skill of an oral surgeon is required to resolve the issue.

  • Wisdom teeth extractions

The wisdom teeth or third molars, located at the back of the jaw, are normally the last teeth to develop.

Issues relating to the eruption of wisdom teeth are very common. It is one of the most performed interventions in oral surgery.

Issues often arise when the wisdom teeth come through.

  • Pre-prosthetic surgery

Pre-prosthetic surgery takes place before the placement of a prosthesis and entails preparing the issues, both hard (bone) and soft (gum), of the bone to facilitate suitable attachment of the prosthesis.

  • Frenulum surgery

Frenulums are mucous membrane folds joining two adjacent surfaces. They sometimes cause problems relating to teeth position, phonetics and periodontal matters.

In these cases, a quick and minor intervention is carried out to resolve issues that could cause bigger problems in adulthood.
