Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS)
We offer our patients and referring colleagues the complete service portfolio in the area of oral and maxillofacial surgery and implantology. Thereby, it is especially important to us to reconstruct, preserve and improve the quality of life of our patients. This is only possible through the constant exchange of experiences among ourselves, interdisciplinary approaches and modern, micro-surgical treatment techniques that help us to fulfill the anatomic and functional complexity of the face, jaws and teeth. If you should face a very difficult or risky surgical procedure, we recommend visiting an oral-maxillofacial surgeon. Within the framework of dentoalveolar or dental surgery, we are specialized in the following areas:
- Microscopic root end surgery
- Wisdom teeth / teeth removal
- Aesthetic-plastic periodontal surgery
- Pre-prosthetic surgery
- Bone regeneration
Besides renewing and improving the chewing function and chewing comfort, the aesthetic aspect is very important.
OMS – Referral
Since oral and maxillofacial surgery is an interdisciplinary field, we often work closely together with referring dentists and doctors. Prior to starting the individual therapy in our practice, we extensively consult with our referring colleagues and agree upon the treatment plan in detail. We place enormous value on the active exchange of experiences within our team and on interdisciplinary cooperation that is based on trust. This is the only way we can guarantee successful treatment results.
The raw data that has been collected during diagnostics are either transferred to our referring colleague for his own evaluation or we prepare the complete planning including the respective operation template for the planned implantations that may also be carried out by our practice team. While we are concentrating solely on surgical procedures, the referring doctor takes care of the prosthetic work.
One of the most frequently performed procedures in oral surgery is the removal of wisdom teeth; a procedure that is generally not done before adulthood.
In our surgery center, we have the possibility to remove all wisdom teeth in just one procedure. Our recommendation to those patients who will have all of their wisdom teeth removed is to choose between general anesthesia and analgesic sedation. Depending on the medical necessity and based on the planning of our referring colleague, we determine how many wisdom teeth will be removed, and when. We are of course always aiming at adapting all steps of the treatment to our patients’ needs.
Plastic-surgical procedures in areas that might be critical in terms of aesthetics are very challenging. In order to achieve the goals of microsurgery, i.e. a harmonious tooth / gum course and an atraumatic procedure to prevent scarring, we use minimal-invasive and refined techniques that make tissue-conserving procedures mostly possible.
