What is oral surgery?
Oral surgery is a dental specialty used to treat conditions or injuries that affect the teeth, mouth, jaws, face and head. Oral surgeons perform a wide range of procedures including tooth extractions, root canals, facial and jaw reconstruction as well as dental implants. Oral surgery can also be used to help treat diseases that affect the face and care for patients who are suffering from certain forms of oral cancer.
Surgery of any kind may be daunting, so it is important to find a surgeon with whom you feel a sense of comfort with and trust. At Concerned Dental, our dental surgeons are skilled, knowledgeable, and able to determine the proper procedure needed to correct your oral issues.
When is oral surgery performed?
Various oral conditions may require oral surgery, such as:
- Impacted teeth (such as wisdom teeth)
- Tooth loss
- Jaw related issues such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint pain)
- Facial injuries
- Oral cancer
What does oral surgery involve?
Depending on the exact type of oral surgery you are undergoing, your procedure will vary. You can expect in general that your oral surgeon will ensure that you are comfortable and completely understand your surgery prior to your visit. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns with your dental surgeon as well. At Concerned Dental, sedation dentistry is always an option for routine procedures. Sedation is also commonly used during oral surgery to make sure our patients are completely comfortable throughout the procedure. Ask your dentist if you’d like to learn more about this process and what you can expect during your surgery.
