Oral Surgery Services

Oral surgery services encompass a range of surgical procedures performed in the mouth and jaw area to address various dental and oral health issues. These services are typically provided by oral surgeons, who are specially trained in surgical procedures involving the mouth, jaws, and facial structures. Some common oral surgery services include:

  1. Tooth Extraction: Removal of damaged, decayed, impacted, or problematic teeth that cannot be saved through other treatments. This may include wisdom teeth extraction, surgical extractions, or removal of severely infected teeth.

  2. Dental Implant Placement: Surgical placement of dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. This procedure involves inserting a titanium implant into the jawbone to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

  3. Bone Grafting: Augmentation of the jawbone using bone grafts to provide adequate support for dental implants or to address bone loss due to periodontal disease or trauma.

  4. Orthognathic Surgery: Corrective jaw surgery to address skeletal irregularities, malocclusions (misaligned bite), or facial asymmetry that cannot be corrected with orthodontic treatment alone.

  5. Treatment of Oral Pathologies: Surgical removal of oral lesions, cysts, tumors, or other abnormalities in the mouth, including biopsies for diagnostic purposes.

  6. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Surgery: Surgical interventions to address severe cases of TMJ disorders that do not respond to conservative treatments like medication, physical therapy, or splints.

  7. Facial Trauma Repair: Surgical repair of facial injuries, fractures, or lacerations resulting from accidents, sports injuries, or other traumatic events.

Oral surgery services are essential for addressing complex dental issues, restoring oral function, and improving the overall health and well-being of patients. These procedures are typically performed with the use of anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety during treatment.
