Oral surgery

It includes

  • Extracting wisdom teeth
  • Removal of internal teeth
  • Lifting of the maxillary body
  • Bone grafts
Oral surgery involves a series of operations aimed at resolving anatomical and biological conditions which result unfavorable and irreversible. Most of these operations are done under local anesthesia.

Which is the most common oral surgery?

In addition to the common dental extraction, here are some of the most common operations that Dr. Benzi and his team perform applying their advanced method and technology.

Extraction of wisdom teeth

The extraction of wisdom teeth can be more or less invasive, depending on the position of the tooth and its relationship with the surrounding anatomical structures. In many cases the third molar assumes a position very similar to that of the other molars, and its extraction does not present difficulties. When it comes to “buried’ teeth”, however, particularly when wisdom teeth are situated in horizontal bone and lye perpendicular to the axis of the adjacent tooth, their extraction requires a surgical approach with a technique of extraction that will require specific, well-experienced hands.

Impacted canines or other ‘buried’ teeth

It happens relatively frequently that canines or other teeth (mostly premolars), fail to find the correct space to reach their natural position and remain deeply inserted into the bone. In such cases, in combination with proper Orthodontic, therapy, surgery will be needed so as to remove any obstacles and then insert any necessary Orthodontic apparatus, in order to guide the teeth to an ideal position.

Maxillary lift

The maxillary lift is a surgical operation to increase (or more often a “recovery”) bone volume in the posterior areas of the upper arch of the mouth that will enable the insertion of implants of adequate length and diameter. The expression “max lift” is due to the presence of the “maxillary mass” of which floor is anatomically moved up by restoring bone volume. There are various surgical techniques that can be used for this purpose and their predictability, in terms of results, is obviously related to the surgeon’s experience.

Bone grafts

The use of tissue engineering techniques (bone grafts, use of membranes, growth factors, osteo-genetic distraction etc.) enable us to repair severe periodontal damage, or obtaining sufficient bone support for future implants even in the most difficult cases.

Gum graft

Enables the reduction or even elimination of damage and functional deficits as well as blemishes, caused by receding gums that ” bare” the root of the tooth with the consequent result of risk of tooth loss, as well as “sensitivity” and compromised aesthetics due to a dental “smile”. This surgical procedure comes about by the opening a flap and aims at obtaining the correct anatomy of the soft tissue adjacent to the teeth.

Management “Gummy Smile”

It happens fairly frequently that due to a combination of factors, teeth are not able to cut the mucous lining and therefore teeth appear seemingly short, broad and stocky and the patient exposes a lot gum when smiling. A careful analysis and a proper evaluation of a “Digital Smile Design” gives a skilled surgeon an accurate forecast of result, a redefinition of the patients soft tissue, resulting in a well balanced, natural smile.
