Teeth straightening

When is a tooth extraction necessary?

Tooth extraction is necessary for various reasons:

– severe caries damage, where the tooth can no longer be restored with a filling;
– fractures or breaks in the tooth;
– malocclusion;
– diseases of the tissues around the tooth;
– when the tooth is underdeveloped and can cause complications.

After a tooth extraction, the jawbone usually recovers quickly and successfully. If necessary, a missing tooth implant or other tooth restoration procedures can be planned.

Simple removal of a permanent tooth

At the Vingis clinic, the doctors do everything they can to preserve your teeth. When a tooth can no longer be restored with a filling or denture, it is extracted (pulled). A simple tooth extraction usually takes up to 30 minutes under local anaesthesia. A single tooth extraction costs €40-50.

Removal of mental teeth is a surgical procedure.

The mental teeth are the latest to emerge, usually starting at the age of 18. Often, a lack of space in the jaw can cause the mental teeth to protrude laterally, leaning on other teeth and pushing out previously erupted teeth. Undeveloped teeth under the gums can cause pain, infections, clenching or even damage nearby teeth.

Mental teeth are often quite difficult to maintain and clean, and plaque builds up more quickly on the surface, which can lead to decay, which can eventually damage adjacent teeth. Misaligned mental teeth can also cause inflammation and pain.

There are cases where the mental teeth come in correctly and, when well cleaned, do not cause any problems. The key then is to maintain them properly.

Removing problematic mental teeth prevents periodontal disease caused by plaque build-up around the teeth, as well as painful tooth decay or crowding of adjacent teeth caused by misaligned teeth.

In most cases, the removal of a mental tooth takes up to 30 minutes under local anaesthesia. 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 familiarised with oral care after tooth extraction. We also give you a printed memo with all the recommendations.

The cost of removing a single mental tooth is €50-90.

Retained teeth are teeth that are fully or incompletely formed but have not erupted for various reasons. The most common teeth to be thinned are the canines and the mental teeth. Underdeveloped teeth under the gums can cause pain, infections, crowding and even damage to adjacent teeth. Unremoved thinning teeth can lead to much more serious complications, such as the formation of a cyst from the fluid in the sac surrounding the thinning tooth. If left untreated, the cyst can dislocate the jaw, damage nearby teeth and nerves and even develop into a tumour. Removal is also recommended for partially thinned teeth – teeth that are crooked and only partially protrude through the gums. The earlier the removal, the easier the procedure and the fewer complications.

Usually, the straightening of a receding tooth takes up to 30 minutes under local anaesthesia.

A simple surgical removal of a single retinated tooth costs €90-120. A complex surgical removal can cost around €150-180.

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 Vingis Clinic, such procedures are performed by implantologist Audrius Čaplikas (work experience since 2010), oral surgeon Justė Strups (work experience since 2010) and periodontist Rokas Borusevičius (work experience since 2014).

This method of treatment avoids the long-healing wounds that are left in the mouth when the tooth is pulled. It is filled with an implant and a temporary tooth. The specific implants to be used in such a procedure are decided on a case-by-case basis for each individual patient. The most common is Straumann BLX, while MegaGen and Neodent implants are also suitable.

When is this treatment method used?

The dentist decides in each case during the consultation or patient visit. The most important condition for such treatment is that there is no infection or inflammation in the oral cavity.

Advantages of this treatment method:
– shorter healing time;
– a patient-friendly procedure. This procedure maintains the shape of the gums (no incision, no bone exposure);
– Reduction in the number and time of visits for implantation (2-6 months less treatment time);
– the patient is never without a tooth for a day.

Tooth extraction and single-moment implant placement usually takes up to 1 hour. This procedure costs between €490 and €790 (depending on the implant used and the healing head). In addition, bone augmentation can be performed, if necessary, and a temporary crown can be placed (cost from 90-290 EUR).
