Oral Surgery

What is Oral Surgery?

Oral Surgery is a branch of dentistry that includes the diagnosis, sugerical treatment or repair of various conditions of the hard or soft tissues inside the mouth or jaws.

The most common oral surgery include extraction from moderate to difficult, wisdom teeth, reconstructive dental oral surgery and placing dental implants.

Usually, it isn’t necessary to have an oral and maxillofacial surgeon perform every type of oral surgery; many dentists are well-trained and can perform common procedures, such as simple extractions. However, for complex treatments that may require more invasive procedures or deeper levels of sedation, these specialists may be recommended.

Take control of your smile



Root Canal

A Root Canal is needed when the tooth nerve or pulp becomes severely infected. The process involves removing the pulp, cleaning the canal, and seal it to save the tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth for those with missing or damaged teeth.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that requires some post-operative care to reduce the chance of dry clots, infections or other complications.

TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorder is used to describe a group of symptoms related to facial pain, limited jaw movements, chipped or broken teeth clicking or popping in the jaw.

Bite Alignment

Even minor discrepancies in your bite can present major health problems. Prevent decay, preserve your smile, and avoid pain by realigning and reconstructing your bite.

Dentures

Dentures can fit uncomfortably if the jaw has irregularities and is lacking support of the dentures. To help your dentures fit more comfortably you may require denture filing or bone grafts to correct jaw irregularities.
