Common Oral Surgery Procedures
Whether you require tooth removal or coordinated care between orthodontic treatment and jaw surgery, numerous surgical procedures can help you enjoy a healthier smile. Our team provides a range of complex procedures, including:
Tooth extractions – Extractions are the most common procedure an oral surgeon performs, typically for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. These extractions can be intricate and sometimes require the removal of teeth that are or partially or completely impacted beneath tissue.
Corrective jaw surgery – When orthodontic treatment alone can’t correct a misaligned jaw, surgical treatment may be necessary to support comfortable jaw function. Surgical treatment is often coordinated with the patient’s orthodontist to support best results in conjunction with braces.
Dental implant placement – Teeth replacement through dental implants involves placement of a small titanium post into the jawbone. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon typically performs the procedure to create optimal results. In some cases, a patient’s jaw may not be able to support the placement of the implant without pre-treatment, in which case our specialists can provide bone grafting.
Many times, a patient also requires a tooth to be removed so an implant can be placed to recreate healthy tooth structures. In these instances, our oral surgeon can ensure an easy transition through the entire procedure, from extraction to implant placement.
