Dental surgery

Definition

Dental surgery includes all surgical procedures performed inside the mouth.

Treatment

The most common dental surgery procedures performed at the Champel Dental Centre are tooth extractions, ranging from the simple to the more complex, and including wisdom tooth extractions.

Surgery also includes other treatments like cyst excision, bone grafts and dental implants.

Bone grafts are sometimes necessary when there is no bone in a zone where your dentist wishes to place an implant. It is therefore sometimes necessary to add bone to this area to create the ideal conditions for an implant to be fixed at a later date.

If the gap is not significant, the graft can be done at the same time as the implant is fitted.
