Oral surgery

Oral surgery refers to the examination and surgical treatment of the occlusal system and related tissues, diseases and accidents. The surgical procedure is usually quick and performed under local anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia, if necessary.

Oral surgical procedures

At Hammas Mehiläinen, we perform all oral surgical procedures, including:

A typical oral surgical procedure is wisdom tooth extraction either by pulling or surgery. The dentist will decide, on the basis of the X-ray, which is the best method to extract the tooth. If the tooth has only partially erupted or has very curved roots, surgery is the safest way to remove the tooth. The recovery period for a small oral surgical procedure is a couple of days.

Another typical oral surgical procedure is the artificial dental root procedure or fitting of a dental implant. A titanium artificial root is used to replace the missing tooth root in the jawbone. The actual tooth, either an individual crown or a bridge covering several teeth, is built on the artificial root.

More extensive oral surgery requiring an operating room can also be performed at Hammas Mehiläinen. An example of such an extensive surgery is bone grafting of the jawbone.

Seeking oral surgery treatment

Oral procedures can be performed both by a general dentist and oral surgery. You can book an appointment with either one: the general dentist will refer you to a dental specialist, if necessary. It is often quicker to get an appointment with a general dentist, and the general dentist can also assess the urgency of the treatment.

A need for oral surgery may also arise if a condition requiring surgical treatment, such as a membrane lesion, is detected during the dental check-up. In this case, the dentist will refer you to a dental specialist for further examinations.
