Oral Surgery is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the treatment of diseases and defects of your face and jaw; including the hard and soft tissue in your mouth and head. Oral Surgery is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of different diseases, injuries and defects around the head, face, jaw and neck. Moderate to difficult extractions, including wisdom teeth extractions, and the placement of dental implants, cover the most common oral and maxillofacial services. Our qualified and experienced endodontist and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. One of the methods that we use to get you the healthy mouth you deserve is Extractions.
If you or a loved one has a tooth that is extremely damaged due to an accident or decay and cannot be repaired with a filling or a crown, a tooth extraction may be your best choice.
Tooth Extraction is the most recognized form of oral surgery. There are numerous reasons why an extraction may be necessary, including:
- Orthodontic treatment plans, some of which may require the extraction of some teeth in an effort to achieve optimum results by reducing crowding.
- The delayed eruption of permanent teeth, caused by primary teeth that have failed to fall out.
- Teeth damaged by tooth decay, root fracture, gum disease or trauma which are beyond repair.
- Impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth.
After a tooth extraction, it is necessary to take care of the area around the socket in order to protect the gum line and improve your comfort as the socket heals. We often ask patients to avoid brushing their teeth for at least a day after an extraction, even with an extra-soft toothbrush. Any activity that creates added pressure in your mouth, such as using a straw or smoking cigarettes, should also be avoided for some time following the tooth extraction. Similar to hard foods, these situations can destroy the blood clots and lead to a dry socket.
The aim of oral surgery at our practice is to optimize the health and function of your teeth. Our oral surgeon and our highly trained dental team are dedicated to ensuring that you have the best dental care in the most comfortable setting. Through the use of advanced and appropriate dental technology, we guarantee the highest level of dental treatment and diagnostics, to produce the finest, most stable results. We encourage you to come in to our office to find out how we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
