Chin-facial pain, jaw joint diseases, salivary gland disorders, correction of the jaw-face deformities are also within the scope of jaw surgery. However, the diagnosis, treatment and control of some systemic diseases in the mouth are also performed.
Surgical interventions in dentistry are performed under local anesthesia. The most important ones applied in the clinical setting of surgical applications are female teeth, root end resections and implant applications.
Surgical tooth extraction applications are performed by different methods depending on the position of the teeth in the jaw. They may be completely embedded in the jawbone as in the case of gums. After oral tooth extraction, oral care should be kept at the highest level and smoking should not be used.
