Oral Surgery

 
 

MALO CLINIC

 

Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral alterations, lesions and pathologies.

 
Oral Surgery is one of the most comprehensive areas of Dentistry. This specialty is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral alterations, injuries and pathologies.

Oral Surgery is responsible for all the surgical procedures related to the extraction of teeth that are impossible to maintain in the oral cavity, namely teeth with very extensive and non-restorable caries, teeth without bone support and impacted teeth, among others.

All areas of the Dental Medicine are articulated allowing a multidisciplinary treatment in which implantology, periodontology, orthodontics and prosthodontics may be included.

This specialty can be confronted with very complex clinical situations. For this reason the clinical team may also include an anesthetist, allowing some interventions to be performed under sedation, with total comfort and safety for the patient.

Treatments

 
Extractions
 
Simple
It may be necessary to extract a tooth for several reasons, such as: existence of extensive caries and impossibility of restoration; severe bone loss or the need to gain space in the dental arch. These surgeries are usually performed under local anesthesia, depending on the degree of complexity of the same.

Complex
It is considered a complex extraction whenever to extract a tooth it is necessary to cut bone or tooth. Very destroyed teeth, that are ankylosed - teeth that are "glued" to the bone - and even impacted teeth - teeth that have not erupted normally - require complex extractions.

Teeth can be included due to lack of space in the arch, because they have an abnormal anatomy or because they are poorly positioned in the bone. If not removed, the constant pressure caused by the attempted eruption can cause a number of problems, such as reabsorption or decay in the surrounding teeth, inflammation, pain and crowding (poor positioning of the teeth). This problem is quite common in wisdom teeth, the last ones to be born.

  • There may be impacted teeth out of the jaws?
 
  • The extraction of impacted teeth can be simpler and faster than the extraction of erupted teeth?
 
  • It is not always necessary to administer antibiotics for the extraction of infected teeth?
