Dentoalveolar treatment can be invasive but at Brisbane Maxillofacial we try to keep our patients as comfortable as possible.
A form of Anaesthesia is generally required upon discussion with your surgeon. Other options include IV sedation and general anaesthetic when the operation requires it.
In general our day surgery unit will be adequate for tooth and root removals. Also treatment of other issues such as soft tissue complications can also be treated without the need for external operating rooms.
Unlike ordinary dental surgery, which is done to help restore teeth (eg. crowns & bridges) dentoalveolar surgery assists with the treatment of conditions that involve the teeth, jaw, and nearby tissues. The alveolar bone surrounds and supports our teeth. Dentoalveolar Surgery should be performed by a specialist Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon. Dr Kemal Akbiyik performs these surgeries at Brisbane Maxillofacial for a range of issues:
- Teeth, gums and jawbone complications
- Extractions, or impacted, or misplaced teeth
- Cysts & lesions.
A specialist oral surgeon like Dr Kemal Akbiyik has a knowledge of the nerve network in the area including the Dentoalveolar nerve. This is very important when working with soft tissue biopsies.
Dr Akbiyik can discuss any risks to nerves with you, along with your personal dental and medical history.
As a highly trained surgeon, Dr Akbiyik can offer a range of treatment options to suit your individual circumstance and help solve your dentoalveolar issues.
