Description of the specialty

Dental surgery is a field of dentistry that deals with surgical procedures within the oral cavity. For consultations and treatments in the field of dental surgery, visit enel-med medical centres in Poznań, Wrocław and other cities!

Dentistry treats not only cavities, gum diseases or malocclusions. Dental surgery is also an important field of dentistry; a dentist who specialises in it has knowledge and skills that enable them to perform surgical procedures in the oral cavity, also under general anaesthesia.

Dental surgeon – when to visit the doctor?

Patients are most often referred to a dental surgeon by their dentists who detect abnormalities qualifying for surgical treatment. Additionally, dental surgery procedures are sometimes an important part of initial prosthetic, orthodontic, endodontic or implant-prosthetic treatment.

Dental surgery – what symptoms should worry me?

The symptoms that should prompt an appointment with a dental surgeon at enel-med department include:

  • partially or completely unerupted last molars,
  • oral abscesses,
  • inflammatory lesions in the maxillary sinus,
  • teeth extensively damaged by caries eligible for extraction.

A dental surgeon may also dress wounds and monitor their healing process after extensive dental surgeries, and perform surgeries on patients after mechanical trauma to the maxilla and the mandible.

Dental surgeon – what does the visit look like?

A visit to a dental surgeon always begins with the doctor collecting and reviewing the patient’s medical history. In order to plan and carry out a dental surgery, it is necessary to perform diagnostic imaging scans: dental X-ray, orthopantomogram or CBCT.

Dental surgeries are usually performed under local anaesthesia. General anaesthesia is used less frequently, e.g. in the case of very extensive procedures or patients who do not cooperate with the surgeon, e.g. people with intellectual impairments.

Dental surgery – what procedures are performed?

Dental surgery includes such procedures as:

  • complicated tooth extractions: partially or completely unerupted supernumerary teeth, heavily damaged by caries;
  • treatment of abscesses: this requires incision of the soft tissues in the oral cavity and evacuation of the abscess;
  • sinus lift: this procedure is performed in patients with insufficient amount of bone tissue necessary to place an implant;
  • bone graft: replacement of the bone missing after early loss of teeth;
  • root apex resections: performed in the case of complications during pulp conditions and complications after root-canal treatment.

Dental surgery – what happens after the visit?

After a visit to your dental surgeon at enel-med, you must strictly follow the doctor’s oral and written instructions after the completed procedure. The dental surgeon may prescribe pain medications or antibiotics. Sometimes, a check-up is also recommended.
