One of the widest-ranging fields of dentistry is Oral Surgery. Its purpose is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of changes, injuries and pathologies of the oral cavity and associated structures. It covers all surgical procedures related to the extraction of teeth which cannot be maintained inside the oral cavity, including teeth affected by extensive decay and those which cannot be restored to good health, teeth without bone support, impacted teeth or where there are too many. Tooth extraction may also be recommended where there is a need to provide space in the dental arch. Oral surgery is indicated for the treatment or correction of a previously diagnosed problem which requires surgical intervention, as well as the diagnosis and removal of cysts and gum tumours. More complex clinical cases require treatment in other fields of dentistry provided by Santa Madalena Clinic, such as implantology, orthodontics, fixed and removable prosthodontics or periodontology, with specialists in this fields working alongside oral surgeons. In such cases we draw up an integrated multidisciplinary plan of treatment for the patient.
