Oral surgery
Impacted or non-erupting (retained) teeth which interfere with occlusion, particularly wisdom teeth, must be surgically removed. The same is true for teeth with cysts or granulomas at the root tip, NICO (neuralgia inducing cavitational osteonecrosis) or chronic fatty bone degeneration. The bone and/or tissue is tested for heavy metal contamination. Depending on the extent of inflammation, a bacteriological swab may be taken. After bacteria reduction and laser hemostasis (stoppage of bleeding), the defect is treated with a medicated alveolar insert and left open to form granulation tissue or injected with a bone-regenerating calcium hydroxide composition together with or without rebsorbale synthetic bone, covered and stitched along the wound edges with dissolving sutures.
