Dental surgery

Dr.Samson Dental Studio provides complex surgical treatments without discomfort and pain.

These include:

– atraumatic tooth extractions;

– apical resections;

-regularization of alveolar ridge;

-root amputation;

– gingival plastic surgery.

-Sinus Lift

– Bone spreading and  bone augmentation

The extraction is a method which consists in removing from the oral cavity the tooth that cannot be treated by conservative maneuvers, or they are not of interest, or the presence of the arch prevents normal eruption or other tooth alignment.

Apical resection indications can be grouped into several categories:

  1. Anatomical problems that prevent proper cleaning and filling the channel;
  2. Problems with prosthetic restoration of teeth involved;
  3. Horizontal fractures of the root, apical necrosis;
  4. Obstacles to the length of the root canal that can not be overcome by endodontic treatment;
  5. Procedural errors in endodontic treatment;
  6. Injury large periapicale no longer solves the root canal.

Regularization of ridge. Sometimes alveolar crest shows prominent sharp, covered by thin lining, sticky, painful pressure, provide adequate stability prostheses due to a lack of adaptation. These projections are due to traumatic extraction.

Root amputation actually means tooth root gum detachment when it is infected and cannot be saved through root canal treatment. The requirement to make amputation is that the two neighboring roots are strong enough to support tooth. Amputation is better to use for upper molars.

Sinus Lift – is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted.” A sinus lift usually is done by a specialist. This could be either an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist.

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:

Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.

Bone may have been lost because of periodontal (gum) disease.

Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.

The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus varies from person to person. The sinus also can get larger as you age.

Sinus lifts have become common during the last 15 years as more people get dental implants to replace missing teeth.
