The first association with dental surgery will definitely be teeth extraction. And yes, surgery is responsible for the extraction of highly mobile teeth, damaged to the extent that they cannot be reconstructed, hindering orthodontic treatment or retained teeth, including "eights." However, this is not all.
Bone surgery alone includes lifting the sinus floor prior to implant treatment, correcting the shape of the appendix, tooth root resection and bone augmentation, i.e. replacing lost bone tissue with natural or synthetic material.
Soft tissue surgery deals with frenulum plastic surgery, removing mucosal lesions, covering exposed tooth roots, or eliminating hypertrophied mucosal fragments. It is impossible to list all the treatments offered by modern dental surgery, often providing invaluable support for prosthetic, periodontological and orthodontic treatment.
