When Is Oral Surgery Necessary?
While not everyone will need oral surgery in their lifetime, many patients do, and the need can arise from a wide variety of different concerns. In many cases, patients typically have to visit a separate office to receive the treatment they need. However, at our office, we offer a range of oral surgery procedures in-office so you can improve your smile and oral health much more conveniently. Today, we examine a few common times when oral surgery is necessary, and how we can make your treatment more comfortable and convenient by performing it in-house.
Trimming excess gum tissues
Gum contouring is a minor oral surgery procedure that involves trimming away excessive gum tissues to correct a gummy smile. In addition to performing the surgery in-house, we also perform it using the advanced, specially calibrated Epic X laser. The laser produces significantly more precise results and a more comfortable procedure and healing process.
Removing impacted wisdom teeth
An impacted wisdom tooth is a third molar that has become obstructed before it can completely erupt from your gums and jawbone. Unlike typical tooth extraction, removing the wisdom tooth involves surgically accessing it from within your jawbone, which we can usually accomplish in just a single visit.
Bone grafting and implant placement
Dental implant placement is a common surgical procedure that involves placing one or more dental implant posts into your jawbone. The posts are then used to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. If your jawbone has grown weak, then we can also perform bone grafting to strengthen it before your dental implant placement.
