Oral surgery

Oral surgery

Surgical dental treatment covers a fairly wide area of dentistry, including dental implants, tooth extractions, removal of mental (erupted and unerupted) teeth, root resections, amputations, cyst removals, abscess openings, surgical gum treatment and other operations.

Our clinic has a professional team of oral surgeons and periodontists who are highly experienced in this field. Surgical procedures often cause a lot of stress for people of all ages. The team of oral surgeons at Vingis Clinic always strives to create as calm an environment as possible for the patients and makes every effort to make the procedure go as smoothly as possible.

Tooth extraction for children and adults

Modern surgical dentistry techniques make even complex tooth extractions and other surgical procedures almost painless. In most cases, the removal of a single tooth takes up to 30 minutes under local anaesthesia. Read more here.

Removal of mental, underdeveloped (retinated) teeth

In most cases, it takes up to 30 minutes to remove a mental tooth (unerupted or underdeveloped). Removing underdeveloped or missing mental teeth requires a great deal of specific oral surgery knowledge, and these procedures are performed by experienced oral surgeons at our clinic. All tooth extraction procedures, both simple and complex, are performed under local anaesthetic. If necessary, X-rays are taken to make sure that the surgery was performed correctly and that there are no remaining fractures.

After a tooth extraction procedure, each patient faces an individual healing period during which it is particularly important to follow the dentist’s recommendations. After the procedure, the patient is introduced to individual oral care after tooth extraction. We also give you a printed memo with all the recommendations. Read more here.

Tooth extraction and single-moment implant placement in one visit

This advanced treatment method is widely used at the Vingis Clinic, where two procedures can be carried out in one visit: the removal of a tooth, root or residual tooth, and the insertion of an implant in the same place. Not every implantologist can perform a single-moment implant. Such a procedure requires experience and knowledge on the part of the doctor. At the Vingis Clinic, such procedures are performed by dentist-implantologist Audrius Čaplikas, oral surgeon-implantologist Justė Strups and dentist-periodontist Rokas Borusevičius. More about the specialists.

Tooth extraction and single-moment implant placement usually takes up to 1 hour.

Resection of the tooth root apex

This is a surgical procedure that removes the foci of infection around the root apex of one or more teeth. In other words, a chronic infection site is opened, cleaned, the root tip is cut off and sealed with a special material. The procedure is used when inflammation around the root persists during root canal treatment. The procedure is usually not complicated and the post-operative period is painless. Root apex resection is performed on both molars and anterior teeth.

The root apex resection procedure usually takes up to 1 hour.

Cyst removal

This is a procedure in which an oral surgeon removes an inflammatory focus. Often, the inflammatory focus takes the form of a cyst. The purpose of cyst surgery

to remove removing all or part of the cyst capsule from the infected tissue and, if possible, preserving the affected teeth. Leaving the affected teeth in the area of the cyst, the root apices of one or more teeth in the area of the cyst can be cut off (resection) and (usually) the root canals can be covered with a filling material on the side of the cyst.

Cyst removal usually takes up to 1 hour.

Tooth crown lengthening

The aim of this surgical procedure is to change the contour of the gums so that the crown covers as much of the remaining healthy hard tissue as possible and gives the gums a natural shape. This procedure is necessary when the hard tissues of the tooth are damaged below the gum line or the gum is excessively exuded and interferes with the quality of the prosthetic tooth. After healing, a high-quality prosthetic tooth is possible when the crown covers the healthy hard tissues of the tooth.

Lip and tongue flap plasty

A labiaplasty is a simple and painless procedure, performed surgically or with a laser under local anaesthetic. During the surgery, the part of the lip that forms the space between the front teeth is carefully removed. Sometimes additional plastic surgery is needed. The procedure takes about half an hour.

Short tongue-tie is a congenital condition. It is often hereditary. Boys are known to have 2.5 times the incidence of the disease than girls.

A short tongue flap is treated with surgery or laser flap surgery under local anaesthesia. This is usually not a complicated procedure. Sometimes all it takes is a short haircut and all your troubles are solved. The procedure takes about half an hour. In the case of extensive tongue extension, more complex tissue grafting is performed.

Hernia incision

One of the complications of untreated teeth is the formation of an abscess. Signs include: swelling of the buccal area; severe pain on touching swollen tissues; often elevated body temperature; and difficulty in stretching. Removing the abscess is essential, because if you don’t, it can lead to tooth loss and other diseases. Therefore, you should seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of the symptoms described above.

Plastic surgery of the oral vestibule

When teeth are lost or the jaw is edentulous, bone dissolution – resorption – occurs over time. An oropharyngectomy is a procedure where the muscles and mucous membranes are moved towards the base of the jaw to create fixed gums. Fixed gums facilitate the retention of removable dentures and the longevity of dental implants.


A procedure in which part of the gums are removed under local anaesthesia. This procedure may be necessary in cases where the gums have become dislocated due to inflammation, where the gums covering the mental tooth have recurrent inflammation, or where excess gums are interfering with the quality of the prosthesis.

Lopo operation

It is a surgical treatment for periodontitis, also known as “periodontitis”. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. It involves removing the gum layer from the teeth and tooth roots, cleaning out damaged tissue and gingival calculus, and performing bone and gum shaping procedures to help remove pockets. Once this is done, the gums are put back in place and stitched.

Gum curettage

A procedure used when periodontitis is very advanced and routine professional oral hygiene is no longer sufficient. During the procedure, the teeth are cleaned of plaque and tartar under local anaesthesia, the inflammatory granulation tissue is removed, and the tooth surface is smoothed, which is then coated with antibacterial agents. This procedure can help avoid more complex surgeries for patients with periodontal disease.

Raising the floor of the maxillary sinus

This is an operation to increase the vertical height of the alveolar process of the maxilla by adding a bone substitute of your own and/or artificial bone to the sinus floor. This procedure is used for small bone defects, where bone needs to be added to the site of the lost tooth in order to thread an implant. This procedure can be performed either before or during the implant placement – each patient’s situation must be assessed by an oral surgeon. After this surgery, the implantation is done immediately or you have to wait 4-6 months before you can place the implant.

Root amputation

There are situations where a tooth looks good and could last quite a long time, but one of the roots has a focus of infection that is untreatable or the root is cracked. Then, depending on the situation, one infected tooth root is removed, leaving the others healthy. Once the wound has fully healed, the tooth is usually replaced as a single tooth or can be joined to adjacent teeth.

Jaw augmentation surgery

Bone grafting is used for small bone defects, where bone needs to be filled in, or to replace a lost tooth in order to insert an implant. An incision is made in the gums, the problem area is filled with a material called bone substitute, covered with a special self-dissolving membrane, and the gums are sewn back together. After a while, the bone substitute strengthens and remains like your own bone. This procedure can be performed either before or during the implant placement, and each patient’s situation needs to be assessed by the dental surgeon.

Dental implants

Today, it is one of the most advanced technologies for restoring teeth without grinding or otherwise damaging nearby teeth and restoring dental function. Vingis Clinic uses only the highest quality dental implants, which have earned the trust of both doctors and patients. Vingis Clinic specialists, together with the founder of the clinic, dentist-implantologist Audrius Čaplikas, have been specialising in dental implants since 2011, so we provide the highest quality dental implant services and find solutions for complex aesthetic and functional cases.
