Dental problems can be of various kinds. While some can be treated quickly, others may require surgical intervention. The latter becomes the situation where oral surgery is inevitable. You may experience symptoms like immense pain, bleeding, discomfort, or even need emergency treatment to solve your problem. These symptoms may require oral surgery.
The underlying common goal of all oral surgeries is to restore the functionality of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. Schedule an appointment with us if you go through pain or discomfort or have missing, decayed, or impacted teeth.
What are the Different Kinds of Oral Surgeries?
Tooth Removal Surgery
Tooth removal surgery or dental extraction involves taking out teeth from their sockets. We perform teeth removal when your teeth are decayed to the extent that no other procedure works in your favor. You are given a local anesthetic to feel comfortable throughout the procedure. Depending upon the location of your teeth, extraction may be simple or surgical.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery
Wisdom teeth removal is done when your teeth are impacted or trapped under the gums. In general, third molars or wisdom teeth are the most frequently impacted teeth. When not treated, they may pose future complications such as bite problems, infection, and cyst formation.
The procedure involves making an incision through your gum tissues to access your impacted teeth and then removing them completely to relieve you of the pain.
Dental implants are an efficient treatment option for missing teeth. Many patients prefer this procedure over dentures because implants have numerous benefits and are a permanent treatment of the problem. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made using titanium, placed in your jawbone.
Once the implants are integrated into your bone, they provide a foundation for artificial teeth or crowns. The procedure improves not only your tooth functionality but also the appearance of your smile by manifold.
Bone grafting surgery refers to rebuilding your damaged or diseased bone. It is done by transplanting the bone from different parts of your body or harvesting it from a donor. We graft the bone material to your jawbone to strengthen and prepare it for other procedures such as dental implants.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Also referred to as orthognathic surgery, corrective jaw surgery focuses on the correction of jaw irregularities or malformations to enhance the function of your jaw and teeth. This surgery also improves your appearance. We perform it in case of bite misalignment, TMJ, congenital disabilities, and sleep apnea.
