Oral and Dental Surgery

Oral, dental and maxillofacial surgery is divided into minor and major surgeries. Minor surgical operations are performed in our Ankara dental clinic. Below you can find the surgeries we perform in our Denttera Dental Clinic and their descriptions.


A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are performed for a number of reasons, but most commonly when a tooth cannot be restored due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma.

The vast majority of tooth extractions can be done quickly with only local anesthesia. However, some teeth are more difficult to remove when the position of the tooth, the shape of the roots or the overall integrity of the tooth is compromised.

Tooth extractions can be simple or complicated. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth and require the use of instruments to raise and/or grasp the visible part of the tooth. Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that are not easily accessible because they are broken below the gum level or have not fully erupted.


Frenlum, or lip tie, is the name given to the mucous and connective tissue that runs from the inside of the lip to the gum. This ligament is present in all people, but sometimes it can be larger than it should be and can cause some problems such as gaps in the teeth and difficulty speaking. Depending on the extent of the problem, the lip tie can be removed by laser or traditional surgical methods. This operation is called a Frenlectomy.


Root tip surgery or Apical Resection is applied to teeth with root lesions or cysts where root canal treatment is inadequate. The aim of this method is to keep the tooth in the mouth for a long time without extracting it. The success rate of the procedure performed with the right indication and the right technique is over 90%. However, it is not possible to perform apical resection on every tooth due to formations such as sinuses and nerves in the skull and jawbone.


Listen carefully to your doctor’s instructions after tooth extraction. If you have been prescribed medication, take it regularly.

– Do not immediately remove the tampon placed at the extraction site, but try to keep it in place by biting firmly for at least 30 minutes. This tampon will stop the blood and prevent a clot from forming. Do not rinse your mouth or spit after removing the tampon. Rinsing and spitting can dislodge the clot and cause bleeding to start.

– Do not eat or drink anything for at least 2 hours and avoid very hot foods and drinks for 24 hours.

– Do not smoke for at least 24 hours.

– Bleeding may continue as leakage for up to 24 hours. If bleeding continues for more than 24 hours, contact your doctor.

– You should apply ice to the area for at least 8 hours after surgical extraction.

– Pain that starts 2 days after tooth extraction indicates that the extraction site is inflamed. You should consult a doctor as soon as possible.

– Do not neglect to go to the follow-up appointment after surgical extraction.

– There may be swelling and pain on your face after surgical extraction.

– If numbness does not go away within 24 hours after wisdom tooth extraction, contact your doctor.
