The highest quality equipment and a friendly atmosphere are our advantages. They help the doctor and the patient during oral surgery. The patient feels safe and comfortable. At Warsaw Dental Center, the surgeon discusses the procedure with the patient. The doctor informs the patient about the next stages of the treatment plan. The patient knows what surgical procedures look like. The person also knows how long the treatment will take and how much it will cost.
We perform tooth extractions very regularly, which is a significant part of our practice. The procedure involves precisely removing the tooth from the socket using special tools. After the procedure, we apply a dressing or place delicate stitches to ensure proper healing. Nevertheless, it is worth emphasizing that the use of general anesthesia is a step taken only in extreme situations. At the Warsaw Dental Center in Warsaw, we choose this option only when the patient’s teeth are in an advanced state that prevents effective conservative treatment.
Often, the extraction of upper molars can lead to a disruption in the continuity of the maxillary sinus floor. This condition can result from both the atypical placement of tooth roots within the maxillary sinus and prolonged inflammatory states of dental origin. In such situations, the surgeon conducts a meticulous examination to determine the existence of an oro-sinus connection. If confirmed, advanced techniques are employed. We use a shifted mucosal flap to precisely close the opening. Subsequently, to ensure proper recovery, the wound is carefully sutured. This process lasts for several days, thus ensuring complete healing.
Apical root resection is a crucial step in the process of saving a tooth from extraction, especially in cases where other treatment methods prove ineffective. It is used when other therapeutic options have been exhausted. This procedure is particularly indicated when traditional root canal treatment does not yield the expected results and does not eliminate the inflammatory condition around the root. The need for this procedure also arises when it is impossible to fill the entire canal, and in situations where a tool has broken in the canal or when the filling material has leaked beyond the root canal. In such exceptional cases, retreatment is necessary. The apical resection procedure involves precise removal of the root apex, followed by filling the canal with advanced material. This is a complex task carried out by our experienced oral surgeon with precision and care for your health.
We perform surgical removal of impacted teeth using advanced physiodispenser technology. These teeth, although fully formed, cannot emerge to the surface of the dental arch, either partially or entirely. This procedure is much more complex than traditional tooth extractions and is carried out exclusively by an experienced oral surgeon. It often concerns the third molars, commonly known as “wisdom teeth.” The use of a physiodispenser is a crucial element that guarantees excellent support and maximum precision during the procedure. This tool is exceptionally useful during interventions on hard tissues, where precise movements and simultaneous irrigation with saline are required. Its application surpasses apex resection, osteotomy, or alveolar process trepanation. The physiodispenser is invaluable not only during the removal of third molars but also during shaping and smoothing of the surrounding bone areas and dental implant placement.
Procedures for removing impacted teeth often evoke fear in patients. That’s why we offer the option of general anesthesia, which ensures complete comfort and minimizes the stress associated with the procedure. Before administering this type of anesthesia, we conduct a thorough medical interview, which is carried out by a qualified anesthesiologist. The anesthesiologist ensures the safety of the patient both during and after the procedure, allowing the patient to focus solely on recovery and returning to full functionality.
Alveolar ridge augmentation is crucial in preparing this structure for future prosthetic or implant treatment. It primarily involves rebuilding the alveolar ridge using advanced bone substitute materials or bone grafts. Through this procedure, we restore the correct morphology of the ridge, which is incredibly important for the success of subsequent prosthetic treatment or implant placement. Our clinic has extensive experience in this area, ensuring complete professionalism and the effectiveness of the procedure.
Cysts appearing in the vicinity of the maxillary bone can result from complications of inflammatory conditions associated with the alveolar process of the maxillary bone. Although these cysts do not pose a direct threat to the patient’s health, they can cause pain and general discomfort. Therefore, in such cases, we recommend consulting with our experienced team of dentists and oral surgeons to plan the quickest cyst enucleation procedure. The procedure is short and performed under anesthesia, minimizing any pain sensations. The procedure involves a precise incision of the mucosa of the alveolar process in the canine region and creating an opening in the maxillary sinus wall, allowing for the effective removal of the cyst. After the procedure, the wound is carefully sutured by our experienced oral surgeons, and the recovery period is relatively short, enabling the patient to quickly return to good health.
In our dental center, we also offer surgical procedures that are an essential part of comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Below are a few examples of situations where an orthodontist and an oral surgeon collaborate to provide the best results for the patient:
Uncovering Impacted Teeth: This procedure involves surgically exposing a tooth that has not erupted or is impacted in the bone. An orthodontic element, such as a bracket, is then placed on the tooth’s crown surface to assist in guiding the tooth into the correct position within the dental arch. Through orthodontic forces, the tooth gradually moves to the proper position.
Frenectomy (Lip and Tongue Tie Release): The frenulum is a thin tissue that connects the tongue or lip to the alveolar ridge. In some cases, it may be abnormally shaped, leading to various health issues such as exposed tooth necks and roots, gap formation between teeth, speech difficulties, and challenges in denture retention during prosthetic treatment. Frenectomy is often performed, especially in pediatric dentistry and when indicated before orthodontic treatment, to address these concerns.
Our experienced orthodontic specialists and oral surgeons work together to provide comprehensive care to patients, ensuring a healthy and beautiful smile.
Wisdom teeth removal, also known as extraction of third molars, is one of the most commonly performed procedures in dental offices. Dr. Bartosz Leończak, an expert in oral surgery at Warsaw Dental Center, explains the principles of performing this procedure and when it is worth considering:
Wisdom teeth typically develop at the end of the dental arches and often do not appear until the adolescent or early adulthood years. Due to this late development, they can grow improperly, usually within already confined dental arches, leading to their incorrect positioning at an unfavorable angle or even being unable to fully erupt. In such cases, it becomes necessary to undergo the removal of wisdom teeth.
The procedure for extracting wisdom teeth may be necessary to avoid potential complications such as pain, infections, damage to adjacent teeth, or jawbone. The decision to proceed with the removal of wisdom teeth is made by the doctor after a thorough examination of the patient and an assessment of their oral health.
If we decide on this procedure, we can be assured that the experienced team of oral surgeons at Warsaw Dental Center will ensure our comfort and safety. Our priority is to provide patient comfort throughout the entire extraction process and to offer adequate support during the recovery period.
Therefore, if you are dealing with issues related to wisdom teeth and are considering their removal, we invite you to get in touch with us. Our experienced team offers professional care and solutions for your wisdom teeth-related problems.
The most common reason for the occurrence of impacted wisdom teeth, especially the third molars, is limited space in the dental arch. Discomfort and pain resulting from their eruption should signal the need to consult a doctor. Failing to undergo wisdom teeth extraction at the appropriate time can lead to serious problems, such as gum diseases, cavities, inflammation of connective tissue, abscesses, as well as complicated alignment of incisor teeth or the formation of painful bone pockets.
Therefore, many cases require the intervention of an oral surgeon to remove the impacted wisdom tooth. The evaluating doctor conducts a thorough examination of the oral cavity and may recommend a computed tomography scan to obtain a precise image of the tooth’s condition and determine the appropriate way to perform the procedure. Symptoms that may indicate the need for removal of such a tooth include advanced decay of the impacted tooth, damage to the root of the second molar by the wisdom tooth, recurrent swelling of the jaw area, halitosis (bad breath), gum swelling or bleeding, headaches or jaw pain, and the detection of cystic changes (visible only through imaging).
It is worth noting that consulting a doctor to assess the need for wisdom teeth extraction can prevent more serious problems in the future and ensure long-term oral health.
Wisdom teeth removal is one of the surgical procedures performed by specialists in the field of oral surgery. The procedure can be carried out using local anesthesia. Patients experiencing significant stress or those planning to remove more than one wisdom tooth in a single procedure can opt for general anesthesia or the assistance of an anesthesiologist at the Warsaw Dental Center in Warsaw.
The course of wisdom teeth extraction, similar to most surgical procedures, can be associated with certain unpleasant symptoms such as swelling, numbness, or pain. To ensure a higher level of patient comfort, the doctor may recommend using pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs, which help minimize the effects of the procedure. Additionally, using toothbrushes designed for individuals post-surgery, mouth rinsing, and consuming a soft diet for 12-24 hours after the procedure are recommended.
It is important to preserve the forming blood clot in the tooth socket after the extraction of the wisdom tooth for as long as possible. Typically, the patient is scheduled for a follow-up visit and possible stitch removal about a week after the procedure.
Oral surgery also encompasses cases related to pediatric dentistry. This may involve care for primary (baby) teeth after injuries, tooth replantation (reinsertion of a tooth into its socket after being knocked out), and other procedures related to the oral cavity in children. Experts in oral surgery can assist in providing proper dental care and treatment for children.
According to recent studies, there are no contraindications to performing oral surgical procedures during pregnancy and breastfeeding. These procedures, carried out under local anesthesia, do not result in the penetration of anesthetic substances into the mother’s milk. It’s worth emphasizing that oral surgery procedures conducted before pregnancy can prevent potential complications caused by dental and oral health conditions. During each trimester of pregnancy, regular check-up visits and special attention to oral hygiene are recommended.
Preparing the oral cavity for a surgical procedure depends on the nature of the treatment being performed. In the case of various procedures, it is necessary to follow the recommendations of the treating doctor, but there are certain general guidelines.
For example, before a wisdom teeth removal procedure, it is recommended to consume a nutritious meal. This helps to maintain the body’s strength during the post-operative period when the patient may not be able to eat for an extended period. Smokers may be asked to avoid tobacco for a specified period before and after the procedure.
In every case, it is important to consult with the doctor before undergoing the procedure to discuss any potential risks and tailor the treatment plan to the patient’s individual needs, especially in the context of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and other health factors.
Extraction of a tooth or other procedures in the field of oral surgery usually cause a lot of stress for patients. Therefore, it is important to choose a reputable dental clinic that guarantees the highest quality of surgery and patient comfort. Dental surgery at Warsaw Dental Center in Warsaw ensures safety and fast treatment, minimizing patient discomfort.
