Oral Surgery usually involves invasive procedures.
Majority of the time involves removal of dentition (teeth).
Impacted teeth removal. If teeth do not emerge out of the gums like they are supposed to, they can cause problems such as crowding, infections or diseased tissue. However, this can be fixed with a simple tooth extraction. Your dentist, or in some cases, your orthodontist, will monitor your mouth and recommend if any misaligned or crowded teeth should be removed to preserve the full integrity of your mouth.
Wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are very commonly removed because many jaws are not large enough to accommodate them. If they do not grow in properly, they can cause infections, swelling, and shifting of other teeth. Learn more about wisdom teeth removal.
Improve fit of dentures. Sometimes dentures can fit uncomfortably if a jaw has irregularities and is lacking support of the dentures.
Dental implants are tooth root substitutes placed in the jawbone. Artificial teeth are then attached to the substitute root, which is actually a titanium rod. Dental implants are an option to replace one tooth, several teeth, or even all of your teeth.request an appointment
