What are the main oral surgery procedures?

Dental Implantology

In case of tooth loss, implants can provide a durable solution. Implantation needs to meet a number of health circumstances to have a lifelong durability. Implantation is a serious medical intervention, the process can take up to 1-1.5 years.

Tooth Extraction

Untreated decayed teeth and the illness of their environment can often lead to the removal of the teeth. After having made sure that the broken or damaged tooth cannot be fixed with a crown, a filling or any other preservative dental treatment, the extraction should be performed.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

A more complex procedure, the so-called surgical extraction is needed if the tooth has broken off at the gum line or has not erupted in the mouth at all. The oral surgeon needs to make a small incision in order to be able to remove the broken tooth.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Even if wisdom teeth are grown appropriately, there might be a chance that those teeth will influence harmfully the general health state of the mouth or may even cause other symptoms throughout the whole body. Because of their position, they are sometimes hardly reachable by the dentist so it is rather advisable to undergo a surgical wisdom tooth extraction.

Bone Grafting

The bone grafting is an oral surgical intervention when existing bone mass is filled with bone grafting material, which incorporates over time, and this could safely be implanted with the artificial tooth root. Bone grafting can be done in different ways with different materials. We differentiate Artificial bone graft material, Natural bone graft material and Bone transplantation.

Sinus Lift

The sinus lift is a special case of bone grafting. Oral surgeons use bone grafting materials to increase the height of the upper jaw. This may be necessary if the upper grinding jaw is not wide enough to hold the implants.

What are the risks of an oral surgery?

All medical interventions can cause risks or potential medical complications. We take a huge care of minimizing the possibilities of a complication by treating you by a high qualified medical staff and with high quality materials. All sterilization and hygiene guidelines and all other protocols are being followed. However, not all risks can be excluded.

When you have a big pain that does not stop (you cannot even suppress it with painkillers), when your face gets too swollen or when symptoms do not end in 5-7 days, this can be a sign of a complication.

Complication with the sinus

In rare cases the maxillary sinus (two hollow spaces in the bone on the sides of the nose above the maxilla) opens above a tooth extraction. This complication needs an immediate surgery (still it is not that dangerous and can easily be handled with modern methods).

There is a test to explore this issue, the so-called nose blowing test. Shut your nose by pressing the nostrils together, in the meanwhile press air into your nose. A whistling sound or bubbling on the site of the extraction refers to an open sinus which can easily be closed with a few stiches. These are the most obvious symptoms of this complication, so when you experience these at home during blowing you nose, contact us immediately. Please also contact our clinic if other suspicious or uncomfortable symptoms occur.

Risks of dental implantation

  • It is not advisable to drive a car right after the surgery.
  • Avoid physical exertions such as sport, sauna (they increase the risk of bleeding).
  • Place a bag of ice on your face or use the pocket you have received at the clinic. For re-use, put this pocket into the refrigerator. Apply moisturizing cream before putting the ice on your cheek to protect your skin. We recommend to use the ice bag more times on the day of the surgery, 10-20 minutes per occasion. It is also advisable to apply ice on the second and third day after the operation.
  • The oral surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, the effect lasts 2-5 hours. Do not eat while being affected to protect the mucosa from any injury. You can drink in the meanwhile.
  • Eat on the other side, if it is possible. Avoid consuming alcohol, coffee, milk and other dairies, do not smoke for at least 5-7 days. It is advisable to eat rather soft food like soups, potato puree, etc.
  • Do not touch or suck on your wound and do not rinse it because with that you will remove the blood clot which increases the risk of an infection.
  • Considering the mouth hygiene recommendations supports the healing process and the successful implementation of the dental implant. The set of the operation can be cleaned with a soft brush, the other teeth can be cleaned normally in the meanwhile. Using mouth water in the first few days after the surgery is strictly forbidden.
  • Inform your doctor about abundant postsurgical bleeding, big pain fever or other symptoms that occur after the operation and influencing your general medical state.

Risks of local anaesthesia

  • Allergic reactions: hardly ever occur
  • Local haematoma: disappears in 1-2 weeks
  • Damage of the nerve: rare, it might happen in case of a mandibular block. This can cause sensibility disturbance in the cheek for a few months. The nerve is able to regenerate by itself in months.
  • Restricted mouth opening: lasts for 1-2 days
  • Temporary facial palsy (effects the mimic muscles) which disappears in 2-3 hours
  • Temporary dullness, fading

Guidelines after oral surgery

The wound after tooth extraction, oral surgery or  dental implant procedure needs to be handled according to a range of precautions, which we would like to kindly ask you to considerate during the first hours after your treatment:

  • Do not eat or rinse the affected area because of any reason more during this transition period then what was specified.
  • During the week after your surgery you will experience an excessive effect in the wound (i.e. the area that was operated), so it is advised to eat on the other side to protect that set.
  • Do not to remove the blood clot because that enables the affected area to gain a well-balanced recovery after the surgery.
  • Do not eat while being under local anaesthesia (it can last 2-5 hours after your treatment) in order to protect the mucosa; drinking is allowed.
  • Do not drink alcohol, coffee, dairies or eggs.
  • Avoid physical exertions such as sport, sauna or thermal water.
  • Be careful by cleaning the affected area, use a brush with soft and flexible bristles, and feel free to clean the other teeth the way you normally would.
  • Avoid using mouth water until complete recovery.
  • Do not blow your nose too hard and avoid any hit in case of a maxillary operation. Feel free to use a nose spray as you would normally in case of having a cold or contact your doctor / pharmacist for further advice.
  • Sleep on the other side or on your back if it is possible.
  • Place a bag of ice on your face or use that pocket you have received at the clinic and put it into the refrigerator to re-use it.
  • Apply a moisturizing cream on the face underneath the ice pocket.
  • Inform your oral surgeon about abundant postsurgical bleeding, excessive pain, fever and other symptoms that occur after the surgery and all impacts that effect your overall medical condition.
