Different Types Of Dental Surgery

Dentally surgery is basically the surgery of the teeth and jaw bones. And the surgeries are done based on the requirement of the patients. There are different types of dental surgeries, like Endodontic, Prosthodontics, Orthodontic, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Endodontic generally involves Root canal treatment. The steps in root canal are: i) Pulpotomy which is actually the process of opening the pulp chamber of teeth to drain the infection ; ii) Pupectomy which is removal of pulp from chamber to reduce pain and at last iii) Apicoectomy which is actually taking out the diseased part.

Prosthodontics generally involves crowns (caps), veneers, bridges, implants, dentures (artificial tooth) and Implant-supported prosthesis. Orthodontic treatment means bone treatment of teeth. Apicoectomy is one type of orthodontic treatment. Extraction is the removal of a diseased tooth. Extraction is done under local Anesthesia. Wisdom teeth treatment is also done under local Anesthesia before. Fiberotomy prevents a tooth from damage.

A Dental Profession in Gold Coast always recommends regular tooth cleaning, brushing and flossing. Tooth scaling and tooth polishing are done if much tartar is there. Professional cleaning of tooth in every six months is advised always. Different dental problems require dental X-rays. Wisdom teeth treatment also needs X-rays as wisdom tooth is far back in mouth. Dentists generally injects anesthetic to stop sensory transmission by nerves. The maxillary teeth are locally anesthetized around the teeth by inserting the needle.

One of the important dental surgeries is removal of wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are basically the teeth which may appear between the ages of 17 and 25 and sometimes later also. Wisdom teeth may create problems if there is enough space in jaws. These teeth grow in wrong angle and get stuck against the teeth. For this wisdom tooth, you may not brush properly with your toothbrush. So, cavities or gum disease may grow.

If you have discomfort in your wisdom tooth, do mouthwash in medium-hot water with little bit of salt. This will reduce gum soreness and inflammation. Pain-relieving tablets like paracetamol can reduce pain temporarily but consultation of doctor is mandatory.

Doctors may not want to take out the wisdom teeth if the same is not painful. Doctors will extract if there is not enough space for growing the teeth and the teeth have come through partly. Wisdom teeth may cause swelling problem for few days. Dentists can tell you whether the removal of your wisdom teeth will be easy or tough after checking the X-ray plates. Cost of extraction of wisdom teeth may vary according to the difficulty.
