Our Selection of Dental and Maxillofacial Procedures
Centurion Day Hospital offers a selection of dental (teeth) and maxillofacial (jaw and face) surgical procedures that can be performed in a day hospital for your convenience. Hospitalisation can cost a small fortune when staying for several days or weeks. Therefore, our day hospital is ideal for a wide array of minor surgeries that are done under general and local anaesthesia, such as:
Apicectomy is a surgical procedure where a dental surgeon places a filling at the end of the root of a tooth after removing any infected tissue in the surrounding area to contain any bacteria that might be remaining in the canal system. This minor surgical procedure is performed if cysts or infections are consistent problems following root canal treatment or if the root tip cannot be sealed by means of a normal root filling.
Dental implants refer to surgical components that interface with the bone structure of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis that include bridges or crowns, acting as an orthodontic anchor to keep everything in place and lined up accordingly. This type of surgery is performed by a maxillofacial/dental surgeon.
Dental extractions are divided into 2 definitive categories – simple extraction and surgical extraction. In the case of simple extraction, this type of procedure removes visible and easily accessible teeth, while a surgical extraction would normally require an incision into the connective tissue to gain access to the tooth before it can be removed.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The majority of people develop impacted wisdom teeth as they mature into adulthood. Therefore, wisdom teeth removal is a common dental and maxillofacial procedure to remove wisdom teeth that do not have enough room to erupt naturally into the mouth or develop normally. Each case of wisdom teeth removal is unique, as some wisdom teeth can grow sideways, impeding the other teeth by limiting their available room on the jawline. Therefore, a professional surgeon can give you a comprehensive evaluation to deal with your impacted wisdom teeth and avoid any further complications.
