DENTAL surgery in Croatia

A number of conditions may require dental surgery, including:

Impacted teeth

 

Why do we recommend patients
with impacted wisdom teeth to
remove them surgically?

Wisdom teeth, otherwise known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. Sometimes these teeth emerge from the gum line and the jaw is large enough to allow room for them, but most of the time, this is not the case. More often, one or more of these third molars fails to emerge in proper alignment or fails to fully emerge through the gum line and becomes entrapped or "impacted" between the jawbone and the gum tissue. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone so we recommend dental surgery (in Croatia).

It's not just wisdom teeth that sometimes become impacted and need to be removed. Other teeth, such as the cuspids and the bicuspids can become impacted and can cause the same types of problems described with impacted wisdom teeth.

 

Tooth Loss

Dental implants are an option for tooth loss due to an accident or infection or as an alternative to dentures. The dental implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored in place in the jawbone and act to stabilize the artificial teeth to which they are attached.

We in unique Croatian dental clinic Ortoimplant use flapless implant dental surgery with it benefits in decreasing patient discomfort in the immediate postoperative period. This techique is often more demanding than conventional surgical approach so it actually requires more experience and presurgical planning like we can offer with 3D Dental Master programme planning.

 

Jaw-Related Problems and dental
surgery in unique dental clinic in Croatia

• Unequal jaw growth. In some individuals, the upper and lower jaws fail to grow properly. This can cause difficulty in speaking, eating, swallowing, and breathing. While some of these problems -- like improper teeth alignment -- can be corrected with braces and other orthodontic appliances, more serious problems require oral surgery.

• Improve the fitting of dentures. For first-time denture wearers, oral surgery can be done to correct any irregularities of the jaws prior to creating the dentures to ensure a better fit. Oral surgery can also help long-term denture wearers. Supporting bone often deteriorates over time resulting in dentures that no longer fit properly. In severe cases, an oral surgeon can add a bone graft to areas where little bones remain.

• Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Dysfunction of the TMJ, the small joint in front of the ear, is a common source of headache and facial pain. Joint surgery is an option for advanced cases and when the diagnosis indicates a specific problem in the join

 

Other Conditions
Treated By Oral Surgery

• Facial injury repair, Lesion removal and biopsy, Cleft lip and cleft palate repair, Facial infections. Pain and swelling in the face, neck, or jaws may indicate an infection. Infections in this area of the body can sometimes develop into life-threatening emergencies if not treated promptly and effectively (Surgical treatment, if needed, may include cutting into and draining the infected area as well as extracting any teeth that might be involved).

• Snoring/sleep apnea. Surgical procedures involve removing the soft tissues of the oropharynx (an area in the back portion of the mouth) or the lower jaw.

Enhanced Healing With The Use Of  Platelet Rich Fibrin.

 

What is platelet rich fibrin, and
why do we in the unique dental clinic Ortoimplant
highly recommend to our patients?

First of all we ask our patients who are planning: tooth extraction, dental implants, bone grafting or gum grafting : „ If you could do something that was scientifically proven to enhance your body’s own healing and regeneration systems, that would decrease your chances of having post operative complications and help attain better healing and better results for your dental surgery, withouth any medicines, chemicals, or donor cells other than having a small amount of your own blood drawn, would you want to do that?

 

The answer is obvious, so this is
the description why do we in the unique Croatian
dental clinic Ortoimplant highly recommend
the use of PRP for our patients.

Platelet rich fibrin is a gelled membrane form of the products that we make from a small quantity of blood that we take from the patient just before their dental procedure. This blood is drawn in test tubes and then spun in a centrifuge which separates the blood into it’s individual components: 1. plasma, 2. red blood cells and 3. a small but very concentrated quantity of white blood cells and platelets called the buffy coat. It’s this buffy coat layer that contains the healing and growth factors that we use to enhance healing.

These products, processed from your own blood are then immediately placed into the surgical site. The scientifically proven positive effects of this procedure include better and faster soft tissue (gums) and hard tissue (bone) healing and regeneration. Because the healing occurs faster than usual, there is less chance of infection, dry socket, failed implants or failed grafting. These procedures are especially helpful to those who otherwise might have impaired healing such as diabetics , smokers, and others with chronic or acute conditions which can interfere with healing.

 

Is this procedure new in our unique
Croatian dentistry and what is the price?

We have been using in Croatia in Ortoimplant dental clinic platelet rich plasma in our practice for 3 years, with notable benefits to our patients. The procedure is widely used in medicine for such things as heart surgery, orthopedics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology......just to name a few. PRP in dentistry is probably more effective in concentrating growth factors than many of the other more expensive techniques and it is very affordable for the patient.
