Oral surgery is an overall word for all surgical done dental treatments. These can be tooth extractions, root end surgery, implants and surgery on suft tissue. It is usually done by oral surgeons.
The understanding of oral surgery in our dental office will maybe differ from the opinion of several „classic“ oral surgeons.
Our starting point of performing oral surgery is coming from the preservative disciplines in dentistry.
The overall aim should be the preserving of your natural dentition. According to that goal we will discuss all options before the treatment with you and also with our specialists.
Especially if it comes to root end resections (apicoectomy) our specialist in endodontology will discuss options to avoid the treatment. In a lot of cases a retreatment of the already done root canal treatment will lead to a successful outcome.
If you have extensive build ups like huge posts or big dental suprastructures on the inflamed teeth a microsurgical root end therapy can be the most minimal treatment option.
These microsurgeries, performed under a highly magnifying dental microscope with the latest materials can have a very high success rate.
To offer you the best you can get, our specialist Dr. Sebastian Zorn, participated at the „International program in Endodontics and endodontic Microsurgery“ at the Department of Endodontics University of Pennsylvania, the cradle of endodontic Microsurgery.
