Oral Surgery - Will it hurt?
We often find that when we mention the term “oral surgery” during our treatments, our patients get scared. Yet modern oral surgeries often serve the purpose of eliminating the need for other lengthy and unpleasant treatments.
We call oral surgery any procedure that is related to the functions of the mouth in some way. Oral surgery can be performed in the oral cavity, but even on the face or, in extreme cases, on the neck as well. Oral surgery is a relatively young medical discipline, but it is actually the reason why this field has gone through a tremendous development recently.
Oral surgery now works with a very precise technique, aiming at minimal destruction. The interventions - just as it is the case with other surgeries - are performed under 100% anaesthesia. Our patients usually give us the feedback that they felt only a little pressure and rummaging at the surgical area, and later on one or two painkillers were enough relieve their discomfort.
Our expert oral surgeons do their job with great care and patience and they always cooperate with you. In our dentistry pain relief begins with reassuring the patient and the accurate explanation of the work phases. Many times the pleasant atmosphere itself helps to carry out the treatment with less suffering.
If you have only postponed taking the treatment due to pain so far, contact us for a consultation via our website or by phone. Our colleagues will accurately assess the situation and inform you about everything, so you only need to focus on recovery.

The Most Common Procedures of Oral Surgery
Tooth extraction: Today simple tooth extraction is one of the procedures of oral surgery too, but also surgical root removal belongs to this category. These operations are performed under anaesthesia too, with extreme caution so as not to cause pain.
Third Molar Surgery (Sculpito): Third molars can cause a lot of inconvenience. If there is only a limited space, they can get stuck easily and cause damage to other teeth forming an inflammatory focus in the mouth. Food also often gets caught between the teeth, which leads to an unpleasant mouth odour. Third molar removal is usually unavoidable during orthodontics as well. After the gentle removal of the teeth, the oral cavity usually becomes completely painless in 4-5 days. Following the removal of sutures the patient is relieved of any discomfort.
Root Apex Removal (Resectio): This oral surgery is usually required for root canal treatment. After the treatment inflammation may develop in the bone and a painful cyst may emerge around the apex of the root.
Exploration of Retained, Impacted Teeth: With the growth of the jaw and teeth it often happens that some teeth do not erupt or develop in the wrong direction or remain hidden. In such cases the purpose of the oral surgery is either to remove the ungrown tooth or to open it and prepare it for orthodontics performed later.
Augmentation and Periodontal Curettage: When the gingiva or the periodontium becomes ill, periodontitis - as it is commonly called - may occur. This process must be stopped as soon as possible and the affected area must be treated. In this case the oral surgical procedure usually involves the removal of the injured area, following which the treatment ends with implantation or surgical bone replacement after cleaning.
