What does an oral surgeon do?
In general, the oral surgeon deals with the treatment of problems of the teeth, jaw bones and soft parts (salivary glands, gums, lips).
In case of what problems should we consult an oral surgeon?
Compared to the dentist, the oral surgeon has more tools at his disposal to remedy even more complex complaints. He can also perform invasive, i.e. exploratory interventions, so he can help patients in more things.

Common oral surgeries
Typically, an oral surgeon performs complicated tooth extractions, such as abnormally enlarged teeth, lying wisdom teeth, or when the curvature or dislocation of the roots prevents dental extraction.
Bone replacement procedures
Bone replacement may be needed before implantation if the bone density at the site of the removed tooth is inadequate or the bone is already so absorbed that it cannot hold the implant stably and for a long time.
Implantation is the most modern way of prosthesis. Dental implants are a routine and gentle procedure today. No need to worry, thanks to state-of-the-art painkillers, you won’t feel anything at all during the procedure! Many people don’t know, but incomplete teeth are not only a matter of beauty, but can also be a hotbed of serious illness, for example, it can be the starting point for joint problems that affect your entire body and can also cause regular headaches. The implant is placed in the part of the bone where the root of the tooth was originally. After implantation, it fully integrates into the bone and becomes like a strong, healthy tooth: it becomes loadable and a stable and aesthetic denture can be placed on it. The material of the implant is titanium, which does not allergize the human body at all.
