Oral surgery

Oral surgery consists of operations under local anesthesia which are directed towards the preservation, extraction or replacement of teeth or at the correction of soft tissue. Oral surgical measures to retain a tooth include, for example, root resection, hemisection and removal of cysts. Removal of teeth which cannot be saved comprises the whole range of extractions from completely destroyed teeth to operational removal of impacted (wisdom-) teeth. Surgical measures for dental replacement are carried out above all in connection with implantation. Operations on soft tissue include, for example, frenulum correction and minor operations to optimize denture stability.
