What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery involves a number of procedures that correct different dental and oral-related conditions. One of the most common types of surgeries is an extraction, which can be performed on a fully developed tooth as well as one that is impacted. However, we offer other types of surgeries like bone grafting and soft tissue grafting. Surgical procedures are all done in-office and are affordable to have performed.
Why would you need Oral Surgery?
You may need oral surgery if you have to get a tooth extracted. Likewise, an area that is missing a tooth may need a dental implant or you may want implants to keep your dentures securely in place. For some patients, bone grafting is necessary to fill areas where bone loss is present. Soft tissue grafting will help to restore gum tissue in areas where the gums are receding.
What makes you a candidate for Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is safe and highly effective at treating a number of dental-related conditions. Our goal is to provide patients with a completely comfortable procedure that utilizes sedation that is best suited to their unique needs. To determine what type of surgery you may need as well as whether you’re a good candidate, you’ll need to come in for a consultation. The consultation is designed to provide you with a treatment plan that addresses many different intraoral problems.
What happens during typical Oral Surgery?
Before any type of surgery, we will have a consult with you. The consultation will often involve a series of x-rays and other images as well as an exam. The exam and images are designed to create a uniquely planned treatment protocol. The consultation is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have regarding the appointment. We will do our best to provide you with detailed information on what to expect with each procedure.
