Common Oral Surgery Procedures:
Dental Implants are an option when you have a lost tooth due to an accident or infection, or as an alternative to bridges or dentures. Our oral surgeons can also reconstruct bone in areas that require it for implant placement.
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorder affects the small joint in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet. It is a source of headaches and facial pain. Surgery is an option for advanced cases when the condition points to a specific problem in the joint.
Tooth Extractions is a common procedure we perform for some different reasons. Extraction of a tooth may be due to severe decay; others may have advanced gum disease or teeth that are broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Sometimes a tooth is impacted, as it fails to emerge in proper alignment or does not emerge fully through the gum line and becomes entrapped between the jawbone and the gum tissue.
Wisdom Teeth are the third set of molars and the last set of teeth to develop. Often wisdom teeth are 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. They can also be removed because they are impacted or only partially erupted, as they too do not fully emerge in proper alignment.
Sleep Apnea/Snoring surgery can be performed to correct these issues if other treatment methods have been ineffective
Biopsies are performed if we detect something suspicious in an area of your mouth, face, neck, or jaw that may have an underlying problem. A small piece of tissue is removed in the suspect area and sent in for laboratory examination.
