Oral, dental, and maxillofacial surgeries are significant branches of dentistry. These branches have a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries, deformations, and all kinds of disorders of and around the mouth. Oral Surgery is used in the treatment of disorders in soft tissues like cheeks, lips, palate, tongue, gums, and salivary glands. Oral surgery is performed for infections in the mouth, wounds and tears, and tongue adhesions.
Dental surgery deals with dental and tooth root diseases. Dental surgery is performed in missing teeth, complicated tooth extractions, prosthesis preparation, restoration of broken teeth, tooth infections, and sinus disorders of the upper teeth.
Maxillofacial surgery consists of procedures performed for a painless and aesthetically beautiful jaw. Maxillofacial surgery is performed in disorders of the closure of the upper and lower jaws, noises coming from the jaw joint, snoring caused by opening of the mouth, removal of cysts and tumors from the jaw, jaw locking, and slipping of the jaw disc.
Treatment methods in oral, dental, and maxillofacial surgeries based on patients’ complaints. After examination, the treatment to be applied is decided. These operations are performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or sedation. This way, patients regain their health without pain. Missing teeth, cysts and tumors, impacted teeth, and jaw aesthetics are often encountered in oral, dental, and maxillofacial surgery applications.
How Do We Use Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for Implant Treatments in our Clinic in Antalya?
Implant is a prosthetic treatment method that is used to prepare permanent teeth instead of missing teeth. In this method, screws made of titanium or ceramic materials are inserted into the jawbone. These materials with high tissue compatibility are used to prepare the artificial tooth root.
Implants allow the completion of missing teeth and provide a healthy and aesthetic mouth. Implants are an important procedure of oral and maxillofacial surgeries and can be preferred instead of removable prostheses
Implant treatment is applied in healthy individuals who have completed their bone development and have tooth deficiencies.
