Dentistry in Zurich-Höngg:
Surgery in Our Office
Wisdom teeth that break through the gums without any complications and integrate well into the mouth should be kept. However, if a full breakthrough is prevented due to their position or a lack of space, deep gum pockets may form. These are difficult to clean properly, which may cause infections. In this case, or if the wisdom teeth are damaged by deep caries, they should be extracted.
Another dental surgery procedure we offer is root end surgery. If a root canal treatment does not heal completely, this option may be used to still preserve the tooth. The tooth's root is shortened and the inflamed surrounding tissue is carefully removed.
Abscessed teeth can often be avoided if you come to us with your symptoms early enough and no pus has formed yet. In case it has, it can be removed and – if necessary – the infection can be treated with antibiotics. Abscesses can lead to further complications. Therefore we ask that you come to us as soon as you notice any symptoms. Don't wait for the tell-tale swollen cheek!
