• Procedures

    Depending on the type of procedure, these can be performed at several private hospitals, day surgery facilities or at Dr Erzetic's Greenslopes rooms.  

    Surgical Removal of Wisdom Teeth

    Wisdom teeth are a common source of pain and discomfort in 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 twenties 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 anesthetic procedure depending on the complexity and patients’ wishes.

    Dental Implants

    Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Implants form a biological union with the 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.

    Dentoalveolar 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 the hospital.

    Facial Trama

    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 of returning the patient to full form and function.

    Oral Pathology

    Oral pathology involves the assessment and management of diseases that affect the oral mucosa, 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

    toOrthognathic surgery is often combined with orthodontic treatment 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.

    TMJ (Jaw Joint) Dysfunction

    TMJ disorder occurs when there is a problem with your jaw joint and/or the chewing muscles. Often this happens because of a jaw injury, inflammation such as arthritis, or overuse. TMJ disorders may manifest with symptoms such as pain, reduced range of jaw movement, clicking or locking of the jaw joint, and headaches.
