We also have the option to refer you to an oral surgeon in the area who we trust can meet your needs. It is our goal to make sure your oral surgery is as comfortable as it is effective.
When Oral Surgery May Be Necessary
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure that aims to restore natural function and appearance to the teeth, mouth and jaw. Oral surgery may be recommended for any of the following:
- Missing or impacted teeth
- Mouth or teeth injuries caused by trauma or disease
- Misaligned jaw
- Bite problems
- Facial pain caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Endodontal diseases
- Tooth extraction
Before recommending oral surgery, our dentists will meet with you to discuss your treatment options, including non-surgical alternatives. If we determine that non-surgical therapy is not enough to remedy your case, we will explain your oral surgery options in detail with you. It is our goal to answer all of your questions and concerns thoroughly so you can feel completely at ease about your surgery.
Oral Surgery Treatment Options
Tooth extraction removes a tooth from its socket. This procedure may be necessary when a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be properly restored back to health. Tooth extraction is also used for impacted teeth and wisdom teeth. There are two types of tooth extraction: simple and surgical. A simple extraction is when a tooth comes out of the socket without incidence. Surgical extraction is performed on teeth that are difficult to see or reach, or teeth that have broken off at the gum line. Surgical extraction is performed with anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants replace an entire tooth, from the root to the crown. They consist of a titanium post that is surgically inserted in the jaw to support a dental restoration (e.g., dental crown, bridge).
