Oral, Dental and Jaw Surgery

Oral, Dental and Jaw Surgery is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of the intraoral hard tissues (Teeth-Bones) and soft tissues (Tongue, Cheeks, Lips, Salivary Glands etc), congenital diseases or diseases acquired after birth. The treatment is given under local anesthesia, general anesthesia or sedation depending on the individual condition of the patient.

Tooth extraction, impacted tooth operations, dentaimplant application, surgical treatment of jaw fractures, surgical treatment of jaw tumors, treatment of abscesses or cysts developed in jaw, regulation of jaw tissues before the placement of prostheses or orthodontic treatment, laser applications during surgery, jaw diseases and jaw joint treatments, botox applications etc are the subjects of the specialty of Oral, Dental and Jaw Surgery.    ;

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Impacted, semi-impacted or crowded teeth may lead to various oral and dental problems including the inflammation of surrounding gum tissue (pericoronitis), bad breath and tooth decays caused by food accumulation, loss of tissue in the roots and enamels of the adjacent teeth (resorption). Therefore, wisdom teeth, which causes crowd in the mouth although they erupt with a correct angle, may need to be extracted in addition to the semi-impacted and impacted teeth.    How to extract wisdom teeth is decided based on x-ray images.  Wisdom teeth that erupted with a correct angle but need to be extracted due to the problems such as crowd or decays can be extracted like other teeth.  In this case, no surgical operation is needed. However, very few of the problematic wisdom teeth can be extracted this way.  A larger part of them has to be extracted through surgical procedures called wisdom tooth operations.

Dental Implant Applications

Implants are screws made of titanium placed in jaw bone to fill the gaps caused by lost teeth. Dental prostheses are placed on them. The advantage of implant treatment compared to other treatments is that it causes no damage to adjacent teeth. That means that the adjacent teeth do not have to be cut. Implant serves as a tooth root and enables you to eat, speak and smile easily and comfortably as if it were your natural tooth. A detailed examination and x-ray are needed prior to the application. Measurements of jaw bones and the remaining teeth are taken. There are two options for placement of dental implants. In the single-stage application, a temporary crown is put after the placement of the implant. In the two-stage application, it is covered by gum and left for recovery. Prosthesis crowns are placed later. In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed and a recovery period of 3 months and six months is waited for lower jaw and upper jaw, respectively. Sometimes, the newly made teeth can immediately be placed on dental implants.  With dental implant, the patient can smile and eat confidently.
