Oral surgery involves many procedures from a straight forward extraction to a badly positioned wisdom tooth or to the treatment of a cysts on the maxillary or jaw bone. Generally, this surgery is undertaken under high levels of stress from the patient due to the unpleasant sensation of the intraoral manipulation and the fear that the surgery will only be done under local anesthetic. Most of the intraoral procedures can be done under sedation, this way the patient will not experience any pain during the procedure, will allow a fast recovery at the clinic and then be discharged home a few hours after the intervention.
Zygomatic implants are a good alternative for dental rehabilitation in patients with long term evolution of tooth loss in the upper jaw who present the associated significant bone loss. These patients are often not suitable for standard implants, due to a lack of bone. It represents a safe technique that allows patients to return to a fixed denture in an amazingly short period of time, sometimes 24 hours after surgery, and sometimes avoids other traumatic and less predictable surgery like the removal of bone grafts from hip to allow for standard implants.
Treatment of dentofacial deformities. Thanks to the combined use of orthodontics and surgery we can correct almost all dentofacial alterations and achieve a harmonious and aesthetic result. The surgery of dentofacial deformities, also known as orthognathic surgery, can be considered as the predominant subspeciality of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery field. Its main objective is the treatment of any type of dentofacial deformity using surgical techniques perfectly synchronised with specific orthodontic treatments pre and postoperatively.
In collaboration with recognized orthodontists who received the adequate surgical orthodontic training, and thanks to their training in national and international reference centers in this field, our team of surgeons offers treatments for all types dentofacial anomalies, and furthermore provides the surgical support needed for the correct development of more complex orthodontic treatments.
The facial skeleton has been treated almost exclusively in recent years by the oral and/or craniofacial surgeon, the improvement of different surgical procedures and surgical approaches to the facial bone complex has allowed the achievement of more than satisfactory results in the different disciplines that cover these two specialties. Transfering these techniques to the field of facial aesthetics will allow us to directly assess the bone and to work on it, which will enhance our results in the medium and long term and certainly make them more predictable. The comparison between pure soft tissue correction versus bone structure correction of the facial features continues to inspire debate and controversy in many scientific forums.
The main question is to what level it can achieve better results and more importantly, how it is possible that these results endure over time. The soft tissues form a dynamic tissue exposed to numerous factors of change which makes the predictability of facial surgery results difficult in the long term. On the other hand , the facial skeleton , even when changed surgically,is not subject to changes as significant as those mentioned, therefore all surgical work that takes place on bone level it will remain nearly unchanged over time. Working directly on the bone surface of the face allows us to modify shape and volume of the facial features and to sculpt the desired shape, for example at the level of the jaw, the chin, the malar area and the forehead.
On numerous occasions, there are facial defects secondary to surgery or old trauma that require reconstructive techniques to restore lost function and shape. A correct diagnosis will allow us to apply the most appropriate technique and therefore will ensure the best possible outcome.
All this is carried out under the supervision of a multidisciplinary team working with our experienced Orthodontists and presents an approach that combines outstanding dental aesthetic and orthodontic functionality designed to achieve very predictable results.
Facial contours are among your most noticeable features. Some individuals may be unhappy with how they look as a result of congenital defects or injury to the face, while others are simply dissatisfied with their appearance. Cheek implants, also known as malar implants, can restore smooth, round contours to the cheeks to create a proportional and balanced appearance.
