WHAT ARE IMPLANTS?

The implants are small titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in the missing teeth position. They act as root substitutes. Small protrusions are attached to the implants so that the teeth can be fixed firmly on them.

BONE GRAFTS

Over time, the bone of the jaws in the position where a tooth was present is absorbed and reduced. This often creates a situation where there is poor quality and quantity of bone to place an implant.

BONE NECROSIS

If part of the bone is dead, then we are talking about osteonecrosis. The factors that can cause jaw bone necrosis are:

  • Infection
  • Radiation (for cancer treatment)
  • Medicines e.g. bisphosphonates, chemotherapeutics, cortisone, antiangiogenics (e.g. Avastin), antiosteoclasts (e.g. Prolia).

ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY

Orthognathic surgery, that is, the surgical correction of the jaws, is needed when the jaw teeth are not in good contact with one another. This is often corrected by orthodontic treatment. However, if there is skeletal jaw malformation then a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment is needed.

ORAL SURGERY

The practice covers the full range of modern Oral Surgery. Whether it is implant placement, surgical removal of an impacted tooth, such as wisdom tooth, or grafts placement, the goal is to promote oral health.

WHAT IS THE IMPACTED TOOTH?

Impacted tooth is a tooth that has simply “stuck” to the jaws and has not erupted in the mouth. Often patients have problems with closed third molars. These teeth can stick to the back of the jaws and cause painful inflammation and many other problems (see impacted third molars). Because there is no functional need to hold the wisdom tooth, when they cause a problem, we surgically remove them.
