Dentalna kirurgija - Dentorium, Rijeka


Dental surgery is a branch of dentistry that covers all the procedures involved in removing or replacing tissue or teeth in the oral cavity. Implant implantation, gum treatment, and repair of soft tissue defects are some of the procedures that dental surgery deals with.

Dentalni implantanti

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium made high-aesthetic replacements that are embedded in the jawbone, replacing natural roots and serving as supports for crowns, bridges or dentures.

The lack of just one tooth causes the malfunction of the masticatory system and causes bone resorption and gum withdrawal. Dental implants are an ideal solution in that case because, in addition to looking, functioning and acting like your natural teeth, they stop the mentioned processes and make up for lost tooth without touching up adjacent teeth (unlike bridges or dentures).

Dental implants are made of titanium, which is used because of its biological neutrality, a feature important for bone tissue to accept the implanted foreign body.

The embedding procedure is painless and is performed under local anesthesia. Fusion of the implant and surrounding bone tissue is a process that takes several months, creating stable support for the new tooth.

After adhesion, we form the gums and finish the work.

Periodontal sugery

A healthy periodontium (supporting structures of the tooth) and gingiva (gum) are important factors in the preservation of your teeth, dental implants and ceramic crowns. In addition, a beautiful and healthy gingiva is just as important for a smile as any of the aesthetic or prosthetic treatments listed.

The reasons for periodontal treatment can be of a health or aesthetic nature, and the surgical treatments we perform at Dentorium are perio-plastics and gingivoplasty.


Perio-plastic or Periodontal Plastic Surgery is a surgical discipline specialsed in repairing soft and hard bone tissue defects, repairing gingivinal lines and reducing the gums (making the teeth longer), and, in general, improving pink aesthetics for even more beautiful smile.

Periodontal plastic surgery is usually performed as a basis for restorative and cosmetic procedures such as dental crowns, dental veneers and bridges, but also in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, that causes infected periodontal pockets around the tooth and withdrawn gums.

Without proper treatment, periodontosis can lead to infections, weakening and destruction of connective tissue, loosening and tooth loss, and with these treatments we have the opportunity to rebuilt and shape the gums.



Gingivoplasty is a microsurgical procedure in gingiva treatment (gum tissue surrounding the tooth) that enables us to add or reduce soft tissue for optimal aesthetic result and natural appearance. This procedure corrects malformations and asymmetry caused by a biological factor, but this procedure can also be cosmetic.

Most of our patients undergo some form of gingival correction because the overall aesthetic of a smile is the harmony of pink aesthetics (soft tissues around the teeth) and white aesthetics (teeth, ceramic crowns and scales).

It is important to note that this procedure does not involve bone removal.

Gingivoplasty requires extreme precision and meticulousness, and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. After surgery, the patient is wearing a periodontal bandage for ten days, and it is extremely important to keep the oral cavity clean and avoid brushing and eating spicy and crunchy food in the first days after the treatment.
