What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is a broad term for any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, mouth, jaw, and face.

Our dentists will opt for the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem. However, in some cases, a less invasive treatment option may not be adequate, and you may require oral surgery to treat the problem.

We often perform these procedures to replace missing teeth, prevent or treat dental disease, and repair weak jawbone.

These treatments can help restore your oral function and alleviate pain associated with these problems, in turn improving your quality of life.

If we determine you need oral surgery and you experience some anxiety about it, we can offer options for dental sedation. We'd also be happy to answer any questions you may have about the specifics of your procedure, what to expect in terms of recovery, and how the surgery will positively affect your oral health.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that's inserted into the jaw bone beneath the gum tissue to replace a natural tooth root. After determining if a dental implant is the right tooth replacement for you, your dentist will refer you to a dental specialist who will perform this part of the procedure.

The implant will bond with your bone and attach to your gums as the tissues heal. You will then return to our office to complete the process once the surgical site has healed, which typically takes three to six months.

Your dentist will fit an abutment to the implant and attach a custom tooth replacement, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture. This process will be completed over several appointments so the replacement tooth can be properly fitted to the abutment.

Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. This procedure may be required to address dental disease, tooth decay, overcrowding of teeth, or injury if less invasive treatments would be ineffective. Additionally, a tooth extraction can help ease dental pain, especially if your tooth was broken or severely infected.

First, local anesthesia will be provided to numb the affected tooth and surrounding gum tissue. Your dentist will then use specialized dental instruments to gently loosen the tooth and carefully remove it from its socket.

Once the tooth is removed, we will clean and disinfect the tooth socket, place stitches to promote healing, and discuss options to replace the missing tooth, such as a dental bridge or implant.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

The last set of molars we call wisdom teeth erupt in the back corners of a typical adult mouth. While some people have their wisdom teeth for their entire life, your dentist may recommend having yours removed if they are causing oral health issues.

Wisdom teeth may grow in at an awkward angle, or become trapped under the gum line, which can lead to tooth decay and other serious oral health problems if the teeth aren't removed.

Bone Grafts

During a bone graft operation, bone tissue (material from your own body or a natural, synthetic, or artificial substitute) will be added to your jawbone to strengthen it.

Over the next six to nine months, your body will regenerate and grow new bone and soft tissue. Your jaw will eventually be strong enough to support a dental implant and tooth replacement such as a dental crown, bridge or denture.
