Surgical, dental services, removal of a wisdom tooth
In case of major tooth injury or trauma, surgical removal of teeth, such as wisdom teeth, may be required.
Is the extraction of a tooth painful?
Thanks to anesthesia, tooth extraction is a painless procedure causing just minimal discomfort.
If and why one should remove a wisdom tooth?
Removal of a wisdom tooth may be necessary when an incorrectly incised wisdom tooth has become inflamed or difficult cutting of a tooth. The need for wisdom tooth removal is decided by a specialist.
In general, we do not recommend removing the wisdom tooth too lightly. Especially when they are healthy, fully come out, properly positioned, and can be cleaned during daily oral hygiene.
However, there are times when wisdom teeth do not have the space to grow properly, and this can cause problems. Outcoming wisdom teeth can grow at various angles in the jaw, sometimes even horizontally.
Common problems with wisdom teeth:
- Completely hidden under the gums. If they cannot exit normally, the wisdom teeth are trapped in the jaw. Sometimes it can cause an infection or even a cyst that can damage the roots or the support of bones of other teeth.
- They come partly through the gums. Because this area is difficult to see and clean, wisdom teeth that have partially penetrated the gum create a passageway that can become a magnet for bacteria that cause gum disease and oral infection.
- If the wisdom teeth do not have enough space to properly exit, they can overload and damage nearby teeth and alter the position of the teeth.
Thus, removal of the wisdom tooth is often necessary when accompanied by pain, repeated infections of the soft tissue behind the lower last tooth, fluid-filled bags (cysts), tumors, proximal tooth damage, gum disease, and extensive tooth decay.
Laser treatment of teeth
It is the fastest, most effective, and sterile method for dental surgery. In most cases, bloodless, very accurate and soft, tissue-sparing, and greatly reduces post-operative discomfort and stress.
There is no need for disinfection during surgery, as the instrument does not touch tissues during laser surgery. The patient does not feel stressed because he or she does not see the traditional scalpel and laser radiation seals the blood vessels at the site of contact, which allows the surgery to be performed in a virtual blood-free manner.
There is very fast recovery after laser surgery – many times faster than with conventional scalpel surgery.
The use of a laser allows for very fine surface treatment without the removal of additional tissue. Laser radiation kills the pathological microflora, which means that the patient does not have to sit in the dental chair for a long time because the oral cavity remains sterile and does not require long-term disinfection.
In addition to improving the condition of teeth and gums, lasers are also helpful in the treatment of herpes, stomatitis, alveolitis, and pericoronitis.
Laser therapy can also be performed on the tongue-tie or for lip frenuloplasty.
