Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a key area of work in the Clinic of Dental Surgery of Professor Vesova. The center aimed to perform surgeries at restoring the aesthetics and functions of the maxillofacial area, eliminating the effects of injuries, removing tumors and other types of surgical interventions. For these purposes, the medical facility has new generation equipment, advanced technologies, materials, as well as safe and effective methods of anesthetic. Surgeries are carried out by specialists of the highest category – maxillofacial surgeons and anesthesiologists.
REMOVAL OF TEETH
Tooth extraction in dental practice is considered an surgery, even if it is a typical removal. The clinic performs both planned and emergency manipulations when the indications for surgery are purulent inflammation, abscesses, phlegmon, trauma and other urgent cases. Special attention is paid to the wisdom teeth: the extraction of “eights” requires the high professionalism of the doctor. Before removal, an X-ray image is taken to visualize the location of the roots, and in some situations a tomography is performed.
The word “lift” means “elevation”, and when this process touches the sinus, it means intervention, as a result of which it is possible to increase the bone volume of the upper jaw. This is possible by reducing the size of the maxillary sinus, for which a special osteoplastic material is used. It is placed on the bottom of the sinus between the bone and mucous. All these manipulations allow to install implants in the future. The successful result of such an installation is the stability of the prosthesis and its capacity to withstand the load. It is possible only with sufficient bone volume.
Sinus lifting is performed both in a closed and open way. The first technique involves accessing the maxillary sinus directly through the implant bed. During an open procedure, a small hole is made on the outer surface of the alveolar bone to enter the sinus. The mucosa is carefully separated from the bone, an artificial protective membrane is installed, and the gap is filled with a bone-substituting material that is an inorganic matrix with high adaptive properties.
FRENULUM PLASTIC SURGERY
Frenulum is a fold, performing the function of an additional fixation of the upper lip with the jaw. Frenulum plastic surgery is necessary if there is an assignment of an orthodontist and a speech therapist to perform this operation. Too short fold can cause speech disorders, degrade the quality of chewing food, leads to the appearance of gum pockets, the formation of a gap between the teeth and other problems. As a rule, frenulum plastic surgery is prescribed in childhood and adolescence.
To eliminate the defect of the bridle such methods are applied:
- frenulotomy or, more simply, dissection of the short frenulum;
- frenectomy or dissection when extra areas are removed;
- frenulum plastics to move the place of attachment of the fold.
In modern oral and maxillofacial surgery, methods are used for frenulum plastic surgery allow doctors to perform the procedure quickly, bloodlessly, without stitching and scars.
REMOVING OF NEOPLASMS
A cyst is a neoplasm, which is a tissue cavity lined with epithelium and filled with fluid. There are congenital cysts, but most often the cyst is formed due to the penetration of pathogenic microorganisms into the bone tissue. Microbes enter healthy tissues through the dental canal, an inflammation center appears, and a cavity is formed. The capsule contains dead cells and breakdown products, which in itself is a favorable breeding grounds for bacteria. A thick shell is formed around the inflammatory area. The size of the cyst varies depending on the stage. At first it is a small granuloma, but in advanced cases, cysts are able to reach impressive volumes.
The cysts are visible on X-ray and CT, so preventive measures help detect the pathology timely, and if there is some discomfort, pain, the formation of fistula, flux, and so on one should immediately consult a doctor.
Specialists in the Clinic of Dental Surgery of Professor Vesova do their best not only to save the tooth, but also the jaw itself. In severe cases, when the affected area occupies a large place, there is a serious risk of bone destruction followed by a pathological fracture. If a true cyst is diagnosed, a cystectomy procedure is applied, i.e. removal of the abnormal cavity and part of the root. At the stage of granuloma, you can still try the medical treatment: the doctor gets access to the inflamed tissue area through the dental canal, injects special drugs and antibiotics.
Neoplasms of soft tissue
On the mucous membranes of the mouth, scalp, face and neck different types of tumors appear. Papillomas, fibromas, lipomas, nevi, fibromas require close attention, since there is always a risk of their transformation into malignant structures. Causes of neoplasm are mucosal injuries, bad habits, viral infections, systemic diseases, poor ecology, poor nutrition, etc. The scale of the problem is assessed by the dentist in order to coordinate the stages of treatment. A histological analysis, an ultrasound scan are required, and an x-ray is taken to determine the condition of the bone tissue.
Treatment of neoplasms in the Clinic of Dental Surgery of Professor Vesova is carried out by using advanced technologies. Experts involve gentle techniques with excellent aesthetic results. Along with surgical dissection, electrocoagulation, cryodestruction are used, and hardening is recommended for vascular tumors.
Gentle Maxillary Sinusotomy
Maxillary sinusotomy is the procedure for opening the maxillary sinus. The task of the surgeon is to extract the pathological contents, mucus, foreign bodies (parts of the tooth roots, filling material, osteo-filler), polyps, cysts and other tumors. The surgery is performed in the oral cavity under the upper lip with a minimal area for the entry of instruments.
