Maxillofacial Surgery:-

Impacted wisdom teeth i.e., those that have failed to erupt through the gum line. Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted. Potential problems caused by the presence of properly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be frequent, and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Other reasons wisdom teeth are removed include misalignment which rubs up against the tongue or cheek causing pain, potential crowding or malocclusion of the remaining teeth (a result of there being not enough room on the jaw or in the mouth), as well asorthodontics.

Ridge Augmentation :-

Ridge Augmentation is the surgical procedure that aims at increasing the quantity and/or quality of bone or soft tissues (gums) in areas of missing teeth. 

Ridge augmentation is intended to allow for future implant replacement, or to provide better functional and esthetic restorations in the esthetic zone. Increasing the height and width of bone helps ensure the success and longecity of dental implants.  

Surgeons can utilize a variety of surgical procedures in ridge augmentation. The surgical procedure will depend on the amount of available bone, the amount of augmentation necessary and patient related factors.

The most common techniques include

  • Guided Bone Regeneration: This procedure involves the use of bone replacement grafts along with biologic collagen membranes that help maintain the shape of the ridge and exclude the oral epithelium from invading the graft
  • Block Grafts: Block grafts are bone replacement grafts that are used in the form of a solid block, the source of this block can be autogenous (from the patient) or in the form of a preprocessed block. 
  • Ridge Split/Expansion: This procedure involves expanding the existing bone to allow for bone growth in between the expanded segments.
  • Biologic Factors: Biologic factors that are either synthetic or from the patient's own plasma can be used to enhance the results
  • Soft Tissue Augmentation: Periodontists are experts in soft tissue augmentation, the soft tissues of the oral cavity play a vital role in esthetics, and stability of both teeth and restorations. Soft tissue augmentation can be performed using the patient's own soft tissues or in the form of preprocessed grafts.
