Dentorium is one of the few dental practices in Croatia that implements a full-mouth rehabilitation by the highest world standards. Placing dental implants, teeth and wisdom teeth extraction, treatment of gums and repairing soft tissue defects are just some of the procedures performed in oral surgery.
Oral surgery is an area within dental medicine that includes all procedures regarding the removal and replacement of tissue or teeth in the oral cavity. Oral surgery includes a broad range of dental procedures such as dental bone replacements, corrective jaw surgery, root canal or gum tissue surgery, placing implants, complex tooth extractions, removal of wisdom teeth and other procedures.
Oral or dental surgery aims to resolve your dental problems that negatively affect your health and quality of life so that the teeth, gums and jaw joints function uniformly and correctly.
In combination with other areas of dentistry, oral surgery allows us to keep the teeth and mouth healthy and functional
In the Dentorium dental practice we perform full-mouth rehabilitation, a treatment that includes treating all teeth, restoring the structure in the mouth, treatment of the gingiva and other surgical procedures, and it is considered to be a kind of artistic and architectural work due to its complexity and particularity. All dental procedures in Dentorium are carried out in controlled conditions, under anaesthesia and using state-of-the-art technology, resulting in safe, less invasive and painless treatments for our patients.
The result of the Dentorium approach is a long-term solution to the problem and your beautiful smile balanced with your face structure.
The most common surgical procedures in Dentorium boutique studio
Surgical tooth extraction
Tooth extraction is one of the most common oral surgery procedures. Although we strive to prevent tooth loss, often times there are numerous reasons why we need to resort to tooth extraction. We resort to surgical tooth extraction when there are complications with wisdom teeth, in cases where teeth are too damaged, trapped inside the bone or continue to be in poor state even after numerous treatment methods.
All the above-mentioned surgical procedures are performed under local anaesthesia under the watchful eye of a professional team, which is why these processes are painless, safe and fast for our patients!
Wisdom tooth extraction or alveotomy
When it comes to wisdom teeth, many will recommend extraction as a preventive measure against potential complications. Often, due to the lack of space inside the jaw, wisdom teeth will grow out only partially or they will not grow out at all, or they will cause pain and infections of the surrounding tissue due to its irregular growth. In that case, wisdom teeth extraction is necessary, and we proceed by performing a complex surgical procedure called alveotomy.
Apicotomy or root tip resection
Apicotomy or root tip resection is a small and common procedure performed to resolve chronic pain (granulomas and cysts) at the tip of the root canal. Before performing apicotomy, it is necessary to go through the endodontic treatment, and if it doesn’t provide results, we perform root tip resection in order to prevent further inflammations and tooth extraction.
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).
A dental implant is the most effective method of tooth replacement
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.
Sinus lift and bone augmentation
Before placing an implant, it is necessary to inspect the condition of the bone and the position of the sinus in the place where the missing tooth needs to be replaced. This is one of the most important steps after which we perform sinus lift or bone augmentation, i.e., we restore the lost bone volume in order to successfully place a dental implant.
Sinus lift is a fast and painless routine procedure performed in patients whose sinus floor obstructs the area needed for placing an implant. By lifting the sinus, we create extra space, filling it with artificial bone to achieve complete ossification. The treatment is often long, but it is worthwhile thanks to the ultimate functional-aesthetic result.
Bone augmentation is actually a surgical procedure that includes replacement of the bone that we need in order to provide a solid foundation for the successful placement of a dental implant. We restore volume and density in patients who have lost bone tissue in the case of a long-term lack of teeth or during the healing of a wound during a tooth extraction procedure.
Healing processes are different in every patient, and they can last from 4 to up to 9 months, but we are here for you during the entire process.
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 specialises in repairing soft and hard bone tissue defects, repairing gingival lines and reducing the gums (making the teeth longer), and, in general, improving pink aesthetics for an 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, periodontitis can lead to infections, weakening and destruction of connective tissue, loosening and tooth loss, and with these treatments we have the opportunity to rebuild 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.
Harmony of pink and white aesthetics
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 anaesthesia. 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.
The prices of oral surgical procedures depend on the current state of health of the patient’s oral cavity and the treatments that will need to be done in order to transform your smile.
