Oral surgery is the area of dentistry dedicated to the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and anomalies of the teeth, mouth, jaws and attached structures (definition by the Portuguese Dental Association).
The field of oral surgery is very broad, including:
- Dental implantology
- Hard and soft tissue surgery in the oral cavity
- Simple and complex tooth extractions, such as wisdom tooth inclusions
- Endodontic surgery
- Orthodontic surgery
- Surgery for cystic or tumour pathology
- Periodontal surgery
- Pre-prosthetic surgery, which consists of preparing the mouth before a removable or fixed prosthesis is fitted.
- Surgery for infectious lesions
- Oral trauma
What safety and comfort measures do Dr. Luis Pinheiro and his team take?
In addition to the curriculum and experience accumulated over the last 15 years in Clinics, the Oral Surgery and Implantology Team also has hospital experience, the result of years of work in a Hospital environment by Nurse Sofia Pinheiro, both in the Medical services and in the Operating Theatre at the Lisbon Civil Hospitals, as well as Dr Luis Pinheiro working on an honorary contract at the University Hospitals of London, providing support in terms of nursing care, medication and access to the Hospital for General Anaesthesia.
At the Clinic, there is also conscious sedation and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment such as our CBCT, which carries out high-precision radiological examinations and 3D reconstruction, allowing for a much more precise study and much more predictable and safe surgery.
