MALO CLINIC Dental Care

Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery is the specialist area of Dental Medicine dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of alterations, lesions and pathologies of the oral cavity and its adjoining structures.

The correction of alterations and pathologies of the oral cavity allows a significant improvement to be made to the aesthetic and functional capacity, to wit the phonetic, chewing and swallowing functions, in many cases with visible results in terms of the self-confidence and social involvement of the patients.

More complex clinical cases require that other specialist areas like Implantology, Orthodontics, Prosthodontics or Periodontology work in coordination with Oral Surgery prioritizing, in these situations, an integrated and multidisciplinary treatment plan.

By dealing with surgical procedures which are frequently complex, the clinical team includes an Anaesthetist, thereby allowing some interventions on the patient to be carried out – in total safety and comfort - under general anaesthesia.

In coordination with the specialist field of Imagiology and using the most advanced technological resources at MALO CLINIC it is possible to carry out a wide range of complementary examinations, to wit panoramic X-ray and a dental CT scan, vital for a correct evaluation and diagnosis as well as for more efficient surgical planning.

Extractions

A tooth may need to be taken out for various reasons, including the existence of extensive caries, severe bone loss brought about by infection or the need to gain space in the dental arch. Usually carried out under local anaesthesia, extractions may involve different degrees of complexity.

Surgical Extractions of Unerupted Teeth

Teeth are said to be unerupted when they don’t erupt. The non-eruption of a tooth may be brought about by various reasons, with one of the most common being the lack of space in the dental arch. If they are not removed, the constant pressure caused by the attempt to erupt may bring about various problems such as the destruction of neighbouring teeth, inflammation, pain and crowding. As they are the last to grow, the wisdom teeth are most frequently remaining unerupted. However, there are also situations in which the body produces extra teeth, the supernumerary teeth, which do not have space to erupt.

Treatment of Facial Infections

Caused by microrganisms like viruses, fungi or bacteria, orofacial infections may affect the tissues of the oral cavity or more specific areas such as the nerves or the salivary glands. Though some infections are low intensity, merely requiring medical support therapy with the administration of antibiotics, more complex infections require surgical intervention.

Removal of Cysts and Tumours

The removal of cysts or tumours also requires the intervention of Oral Surgery. At the origin of some cysts there may be an unerupted tooth which has not been removed. There are cases in which the infection or cyst is located at the end of the tooth root (apex). In these situations, the endodontic treatment or re-treatment of the tooth is recommended. If the infection persists, the removal of the cyst will have to be carried out surgically.

Treatment of Dental and Skeletal Deformations

Oral Surgery also acts on dentofacial deformations, to wit by way of orthognathic surgery. Carried out in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, this surgical intervention sets out to establish the correct relationship between the upper jaw, particularly in the cases of prognathism and retrognathism, characterized by the advance or moving back of the lower jaw, respectively. During the intervention, generally carried out under general anaesthesia, cuts are made to the bone which allows its repositioning.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Pathologies of the Salivary Glands

Responsible for the production of saliva, the salivary glands are liable to suffer dysfunctions whose most frequent symptom is dry mouth (xerostomy). With consequences in terms of chewing, swallowing, nutrition, speech and breathing, its origin may be bacterial or viral infections, systemic disruptions (such as Sjögren’s syndrome, HIV, Lupus, Diabetes or Alzheimer’s), tumours or the interference of certain drugs. To determine the cause of the pathologies of the salivary glands, the means of diagnosis most frequently used are X-rays, CT - Scan and the evaluation of salivary flow.

Treatment of the Dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joint

Located alongside the ear, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) establishes the union of the lower jaw with the skull. Dysfunctions of this joint are, generally speaking, related with poor dental relationship problems which bring about an imbalance in the joints, muscles and ligaments. The main symptoms reported by patients are headaches, earache, eye, face and neck pain as well as difficulties chewing, buzzing, nausea and dizziness. The treatment of TMJ dysfunction involves the elimination of causal factors, meaning that there is a frequent need for coordination with orthodontic treatment, with Implantology interventions intended to replace missing teeth or with orthognathic surgery.
