What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes several surgical and dental treatments. Oral surgery aims to improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile and the surrounding structures, such as your jaw. In many cases, we strive to provide the most conservative treatment possible. However, oral surgery may be necessary to correct certain conditions and improve your oral and overall health.
Oral surgery may include:
- Tooth extraction (for teeth that are decayed, damaged, or infected to the point that an effective restoration is impossible)
- Wisdom teeth removal (for wisdom teeth that are impacted or have grown in at an incorrect angle)
- Jaw surgery (to treat a TMJ disorder, correct uneven jaw growth, or improve the fit of dentures)
- Bone grafts (to increase bone density or enhance the chances of a successful dental implant)
While we provide many oral surgery treatments at our office, we also work closely with other dental professionals and hospitals to ensure that you receive the high-quality results you deserve. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and needs to determine whether oral surgery is the best treatment choice for you.
Benefits of Oral Surgery
The benefits of oral surgery depend on the specific procedure you need. In general, oral surgery can:
Improve your Oral Health: Oral surgery can treat conditions threatening your oral health, such as tooth infections or advanced gum disease. By correcting these problems, we can help you avoid more severe issues in the future.
Enhance Your Smile: Oral surgery can improve the appearance of your smile. For example, if you have teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, we may recommend tooth extractions. This can help to improve the overall look of your smile.
Restore Function: Oral surgery can also help restore your smile function. Jaw surgery, for instance, can correct a misaligned bite and improve your ability to chew and speak properly.
Oral surgery can provide many benefits to your smile. Our dentist will work with you to ensure you receive the best possible results from your treatment.
Who is a Candidate for Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is not suitable for everyone. The best way to determine whether you are a candidate for oral surgery is to schedule a consultation with our dentist.
During your consultation, we will thoroughly examine your smile and review your medical history.
We will also ask about your goals for treatment and any concerns you may have. Based on this information, we will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
In most cases, oral surgery is recommended for patients who are:
- Experiencing pain or other symptoms in the mouth
- Suffering from advanced gum disease
- Needing to have teeth extracted
- Having problems with their jaw joint (TMJ)
Oral surgery can help to improve your oral health and the function of your smile. If you think you may need oral surgery, contact our office today to schedule a consultation. We will work with you to ensure you receive the best possible care.
