  • Our Procedures

    DENTAL IMPLANTS

    Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Implants form a biological union with bone to create a suitable structure for crowns, bridges or over-dentures to attach to. Implants are an excellent way to restore the physical appearance and chewing function of your mouth.

    FACIAL TRAUMA

    Injuries to the facial skeleton are relatively common in our daily lives whether occurring at work, sport, social events or as the result of a motor vehicle accident. As a Maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Erzetic has spent many years involved in treating these injuries with the aim returning the patient to full form and function.

    WISDOM TEETH

    Wisdom teeth are a common source of pain and discomfort with patients. They are commonly known as third molars and often result in infection, pressure, headaches and pain of the jaws. They commonly become symptomatic in the patient’s late teens or early twenty’s but may affect people at any stage of adulthood. Treatment generally involves the removal of the indicated wisdom tooth which may be done as a local or general anaesthetic procedure depending on the complexity and patients’ wishes.

    DENTOVEOLAR SURGERY

    Dentoalveolar surgery refers to operations on the teeth and supporting tissues (bone and soft tissue). Surgery can range from the removal of infected or decayed teeth to the removal of cysts and pathology involving the supporting bones and soft tissue.Depending on the complexity and the patient’s needs this can be done as a local anaestheteic procedure in the Greenslopes rooms or a general anaesthetic procedure in hospital.

    ORAL PATHOLOGY

    Oral pathology involves the assessment and management of diseases that affect the teeth, supporting structures and glands associated with the mouth, jaws and face.Assessment can involve examination, imaging and at times biopsying (tissue sample) of the affected structure.

    ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY

    Orthognathic surgery is often combined with orthodontic treatment in order to reposition one or both jaws so as to restore facial harmony and function. These are complex procedures that often require significant planning and preparation.
