Oral surgery refers to a range of procedures that are performed in the mouth to address a variety of issues, including the removal of teeth, treatment of impacted wisdom teeth, and the placement of dental implants. At our general dentist office, we provide a range of oral surgery options to meet the needs of our patients.
Tooth Extractions: Tooth extractions are one of the most common forms of oral surgery. This procedure involves removing a tooth that is damaged, infected, or causing overcrowding in the mouth. We perform both simple and complex extractions, including the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Our dental team will work with you to determine the best option for your needs and will ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed during the procedure.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are an excellent option for patients who are missing one or more teeth. This procedure involves placing a small titanium post into the jawbone to act as a replacement tooth root. A crown is then attached to the implant to restore the appearance and function of the missing tooth. Dental implants provide a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for missing teeth, and our dental team is highly trained in implant placement.
Bone Grafting: Bone grafting is a procedure that is often necessary for patients who have lost bone mass in the jaw due to injury or tooth loss. This procedure involves adding bone material to the jaw to support dental implants or to repair damage to the jaw. Bone grafting can be performed as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with other procedures, such as dental implants.
Ridge Augmentation: Ridge augmentation is a procedure that is performed to rebuild the height and width of the jawbone in the area where a tooth has been removed. This procedure is often necessary for patients who have lost a significant amount of jawbone mass and wish to have a dental implant placed in the future. Ridge augmentation can be performed as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with other procedures, such as dental implants.
Sinus Lift: A sinus lift is a procedure that is performed to add bone mass to the upper jaw in the area near the molars and premolars. This procedure is often necessary for patients who have lost a significant amount of jawbone mass due to injury or tooth loss and wish to have dental implants placed in the future. A sinus lift can be performed as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with other procedures, such as dental implants.
Wisdom Teeth Removal: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of permanent teeth to develop and can cause a range of problems, including pain, infection, and overcrowding in the mouth. Our dental team is highly trained in the removal of wisdom teeth and will work with you to determine the best option for your needs.
All oral surgery procedures are performed under the supervision of our licensed dentists and dental team. We use the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that every procedure is safe, effective, and as comfortable as possible.
Before undergoing any oral surgery procedure, it's important to discuss your medical history, any medications you are taking, and any concerns you may have with your dentist. We will also provide you with pre-operative instructions and a complete explanation of the procedure, including the risks and benefits.
Recovery after oral surgery varies depending on the procedure and your overall health. We will provide you with post-operative instructions and will monitor your progress to ensure that you are healing properly.
In conclusion, oral surgery is an important aspect of general dental care, and our dental office provides a range of options to meet the needs of our patients. Whether you need a tooth extraction, dental implants, or any other form of oral surgery, our dental team is here to help.
