|Oral surgery can be a helpful tool in treating facial and oral defects, repairing injuries and can even be used as an aesthetic way to restore your teeth, jaw or face. Dental implants, tooth extractions, gum grafts are all different types of oral surgery that we will cover here today.
Dental ImplantsPerhaps you are missing one or several teeth due to an injury or even from decay and do not want dentures or a prosthetic tooth. Dental implants are an excellent way to replace your natural tooth and restore your smile. This procedure does require surgery as an implant is directly attached to your jawbone. With proper care, they become just as durable as your natural teeth and can last a lifetime.
Tooth ExtractionsNot all tooth extractions are as simple as receiving an anesthetic and gently using forceps to remove the tooth. There are times when oral surgery may be required, such as in the case of an impacted tooth or a molar that needs to be split to be removed. In these situations, our surgeon will consult with you to provide the best care possible and successfully extract the offending tooth.
Gum GraftsIf you have receding gums due to periodontal disease or even genetics, gum grafts are an effective way to restore the tissue that you have lost. Small patches of tissue are removed from the roof of the mouth and grafted directly to the gum line, effectively restoring the gums. This surgery can take place in more than one setting, covering only one small patch at a time depending on the need.
Whatever your need for oral surgery, our surgeons and skilled staff are here to answer any questions you may have. Give our office a call today and schedule a consultation, we look forward to working with you!
