Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a scientific discipline and a dental speciality which includes and deals with treatment of cystic or tumoral developments occuring both in intra-oral soft (cheek, palate, tongue, lip and muscles ext.) and hard tissues (teeth and bones), treatment of jaw and teeth fractures, treatment of tooth eruption, removal (extraction) of erupted or impacted teeth, correction of alveolar crest for the dentures, application of dental implants, and also using advanced surgery methods such as sinus lifting and/or grafting procedures (bone grafts) if needed with the implant operation.
In our Hospital, most of the routine oral surgery procedures are performed under local anesthesia. Also, minor or major oral and dental surgery can be performed in our Operating Room under general anesthesia. Additionally, for patients who have dentist phobia or nausea reflex or for the ones having special care needs and the surgical procedures are not suitable, dental treatments can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation in our Hospital.
