How are intraoral surgical procedures performed?

Oral surgery is performed in operating room conditions and in a sterile environment by specialists in this field. Intraoral surgical interventions, which are mostly performed under local anesthesia, that is, by numbing the relevant area by injection, can sometimes be performed with general anesthesia (narcosis) or sedation method.

Is a surgical preparation required in the mouth before the denture is made?

In some patients, it may be necessary to perform a surgical intervention before the denture. Especially in patients who have lost their teeth a long time ago or who are one-year-old, there may not be a bone area in the mouth where the denture will sit. Sometimes, the old denture can cause bumps or some tissue irregularities in the mouth. Therefore, it will not be possible to take a healthy measurement and make a suitable denture without correcting these.

How is Wisdom Tooth surgery performed?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars, located at the back of the teeth row. These teeth, which usually erupt in the twenties, are often partially erupted or remain embedded in the jawbone due to reasons such as lack of space in the jaw, deviation in the eruption position or bone density in the relevant area.

Wisdom tooth surgery can be performed easily and painlessly with new materials and techniques. In this way, wisdom tooth extractions are no longer a fearful dream. Especially for our Oral, Dental and Maxillofacial Surgeons who are experts in this field, wisdom tooth surgery is a very simple and easily applicable operation.

What are the procedures to be done after tooth extraction?

The tampon placed on the extraction area is to stop the bleeding. Therefore, it is necessary to bite the tampon for half an hour. In addition, care should be taken not to use very hot foods, alcohol, cigarettes and acidic beverages for 24 hours. At night after the extraction, you should lie down with a high pillow and never use aspirin and similar drugs as painkillers, and the drugs recommended by the doctor should be used. If a surgical extraction or a difficult extraction was performed, ice should be applied to the extraction area from the outside intermittently. Ice should not be applied directly to the skin.

Things to consider after surgical extraction

If you have complaints of high fever, non-stop bleeding, bad odor, painful redness and swelling after tooth extraction, if symptoms such as blood mixed with saliva, swelling and difficulty in opening your mouth persist even after 4-5 days after tooth extraction, contact your doctor immediately.
