 Dental Surgery & The Process

Oral Surgery can be the removal of teeth, the placement of dental implants, performing cosmetic or reconstructive surgery in the oral area and so much more. The complexity of dental surgery is something to admire and without medical illustrations, the industry would not be as advanced as it is.

Dental surgery involving medical procedures to treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury of the teeth and jaw bones has been the subject matter for the medical illustrations in this gallery. Completed by experienced and anatomically trained artists the dental surgery procedures are thoroughly researched before any illustrations are completed.

The superior alveolar nerves are not usually anesthetised directly because they are difficult to approach with a needle. The maxillary teeth, therefore, are usually anaesthetized locally by inserting the needle beneath the oral mucosa surrounding the teeth. The inferior alveolar nerve is probably anesthetised more often than any other nerve in the body. To anesthetise this nerve, the dentist inserts the needle somewhat posterior to the patient’s last molar.

Our illustrations of Dental Surgery

The medical artist team are dedicated to providing an expert high end anatomically correct illustration, to support medical communications in any business, marketing or advertisement or research environment. Covering dental, tooth, joint, associated anatomy such as the temporomandibular joint, clients can be confident to request the visual creation of any dental subject. We also have a further gallery of dental, tooth anatomy illustrations.

Our dental medical illustrations include the illustration of exodontia, the removal of the tooth from the mouth, where extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons. Tooth decay is often the reason, where it has destroyed enough of the tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Carried out under anaesthesia, the dentists inject anaesthetics to block sensory transmission served by the alveolar nerves.
