Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Ağız, Diş ve Çene Cerrahisi

What is oral and maxillofacial surgery?

Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery diagnoses and treats diseases that prevent physiological interaction of soft and hard tissues in the mouth.

During growth and development, the jaw structures of humans are in a constant state of change. In addition to jaw disorders that can occur due to genetic predisposition, jaw disorders that result from accidents or misuse can lead to chewing and speech disorders and aesthetic problems.

Such disorders affect the quality of life of those affected, in some cases adversely impacting the general physical health and can cause self-esteem problems due to aesthetic concerns.

With appropriate diagnostic and treatment methods, oral and maxillofacial surgery can solve many jaw problems.

What are the applications of oral and maxillofacial surgery?

  • Extraction and treatment of impacted teeth
  • Dental implant applications
  • Sinus lifting
  • Treatment of infections in the jaw
  • Hard and soft tissue applications
  • Treatment of jaw fractures
  • Asymmetry of the jaw tip
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems
  • Jaw bone enlargement (augmentation)
  • An unstable position of the mandible in the front, back, or right and left side
  • Occurrence of disorders due to developmental delays in the mandible
  • Disproportionate and unbalanced position of the upper jaw
  • Treatment of our patients with phobias under general anesthesia and sedation.

What is implant treatment?

Implant treatment is the restoration of teeth lost for various reasons without losing their natural functions and aesthetic appearance.

Implant treatment, which is completed with the placement of a tissue-friendly material, titanium infrastructure implant into the jawbone of people whose jawbone development is complete and who have no disabling disease, and the alignment of porcelain teeth on the implant, provides the elimination of nutritional and digestive problems, speech disorders and losses in aesthetic appearance due to tooth loss.

Extraction of impacted teeth (extraction of wisdom teeth)

Wisdom teeth are located in the back row of teeth of the upper and lower jaw.

The development of wisdom teeth is usually completed long after developing other teeth.

Wisdom teeth can compress other teeth during their development and remain in the jawbone due to the narrowness of the jaw.

Impacted wisdom teeth in the jawbone, which cause a painful and tedious process, can be extracted with appropriate anesthesia and surgical applications.

What is Sinus Lift Surgery?

Sinus lifting, i.e., sinus lift surgery, is the growth and lowering of the maxillary sinus in the bone that occurs over time due to tooth loss in the upper jaw.

Due to the effect of gravity in the area of the missing teeth, subsidence and bone loss occurs over time.

Bone loss is a major obstacle to using implants to treat missing teeth. This situation, which leads to low bone density, is corrected with sinus lift surgery,  an oral surgery application  and the old bone density is restored following the implant treatment.

All-on-Four Treatment

All on Four, is the placement of four implants in a single session using special angles and techniques, if the bone level is sufficient, in the case of loss of all teeth in the jaw.

A temporary fixed prosthesis is placed on the same day. The chewing function, aesthetics, comfort, and speech function that the patient had previously lost is restored in one day.

After a recovery period of 3-4 months, the fixed denture is placed.
