Oral surgery encompasses several different types of dental treatments and procedures. In many cases, our skilled dentists will suggest more conservative types of dental treatment before recommending oral surgery. Certain conditions, however, may make oral surgery the best option for improving your smile and your health. Our dentist may recommend oral surgery for the following types of treatment:
- Facial infection treatment
- Jaw surgery – this may be needed to treat TMJ disorders, improve the fit of dentures, or correct unequal jaw growth
- Tooth extraction – especially for the wisdom teeth (third molars) and other teeth that are infected, severely damaged, or impacted (stuck in the gum tissue and jawbone)
- Facial injury repair
- Snoring and sleep apnea treatment – this usually involves removing the soft tissues of the lower jaw or oropharynx
- Dental implant placement
You can rest assured that our caring dental team will ensure that your oral surgery is as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
