What is Oral Surgery?
The diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws fall under oral surgery.
While we always use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental issue, in some cases oral surgery will be required since less invasive treatment options would be insufficient.
Dental Implant Restoration
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that works like a natural tooth root. It serves as an anchor for a tooth replacement such as a crown, bridge or denture.
The abutment and tooth replacement must be replaced if they have been damaged.
Since the procedure is not as simple as replacing a crown on a natural tooth, our dentists work closely with specialists to plan for this procedure and custom-fit you for a long-lasting solution.
Extractions & Wisdom Teeth
While it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed by your dentist.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
