Extraction of wisdom and unerupted teeth

Wisdom teeth cause frequent issues, in young patients in particular. Problems arise when the eruption of such teeth is difficult, with pain, swelling, and reddening around the last tooth. In such a situation, it is necessary to seek advice of a specialist-dental surgeon, who will remove the complaint quickly and effectively. Unerupted teeth, which did not erupt at a correct moment for various reasons, are a bit rarer and usually discovered by accident during a radiological examination. In such a case, the procedure depends on many factors and usually requires consultations with an orthodontist and a prosthodontis.

Resection

Resection is a procedure performed with local anaesthesia. It consists in the removal of a fragment of a root only and leaving the remaining tooth structures intact. It is performed in the situations when inflammation develops around the tip of the root where endodontic treatment (root canal therapy) may not be applied. This procedure makes it possible to save even a partially healthy tooth for many years in many complex periodontal diseases.

Periodontology

At present, periodontal procedures are very important for patients with periodontal diseases. They include not only professional scaling but also removing all pathological inflammatory tissues around teeth in parodontium (curettage), which sometimes lead to bone atrophy and wobbly teeth. After eliminating local causes of inflammation, regenerative procedures of parodontium may be started. As a result, lost tissues may be partially regenerated using stimulating materials.

Cyst removal

Cysts develop in various places in the oral cavity. Most frequently, they develop in bones around root tips as a result of inflammatory processes coming out from roots. They may also develop around unerupted teeth buds. Cysts may be from several millimetres to even several centimetres big. Their growth may lead to a local destruction and weakening of the bone. There are seldom any visible symptoms. Cysts should be definitely removed, always by a specialist.

RESEARCH

Aesthetic Dent team led by Katarzynę Sporniak-Tutak is involved in a multicenter research program which brings together the most prestigious research centers from Switzerland, Austria, USA and Spain. Aesthetic  Dent Clinic is currently the only center in Poland, which conducts research on such a large scale in the field of short implants. The aim of the study is a long-term (5.5 years) functional assessment of short- implant in bony compromised conditions.

 
Thanks to changing technology of implants production to increase bone-to-implant contact, we investigate efficacy of short implants compared to standard dimensions implants. Based on the preliminary results, we expect many positive effects of the treatment. These include: reducing the need for CT scans, irradiation decrease, limitation and reduction of peri-implant advanced procedures such as bone grafting or bone reconstruction procedures. Also abridgement of treatment time and associated costs. Short implants can also be safely used in patients with systemic diseases that would hinder the process of surgery and healing.
