Oral surgery is any surgical operation used to address problems with your mouth or jaw. There are a variety of oral surgeries, including wisdom tooth extractions and root canals.
Your dentist might also recommend oral surgery to remove a growth or reposition your jaw following an automobile accident.
The team at Bayside Orthodontics offers different types of oral surgery that include:
If you develop a cavity or seriously damage a tooth, an extraction may be necessary. During an extraction, your dentist administers a local anesthetic — numbing your tooth roots and gums — and carefully extracts your tooth using dental forceps.
The team at Bayside Orthodontics also performs wisdom teeth extractions. Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, break through your gum line later than all of your other teeth. As a result, they’re more likely to become impacted.
Even if you have plenty of room for your wisdom teeth to come in, your dentist might still recommend an extraction. Wisdom teeth are difficult to clean and may increase your risk of oral health problems later in life.
Your dentist performs wisdom teeth extraction using IV sedation, ensuring your comfortable and pain-free throughout.
Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry known as prosthetic dentistry. This field includes dental restorations and replacing lost or extracted teeth.
If you lose one or more teeth, your dentist might recommend a type of prosthodontic treatment, such as dental implants, to restore your smile to its near-original condition.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the most complex type of oral surgery and includes procedures such as corrective jaw surgery, bone augmentation, and nerve repositioning.
If you’re seriously injured in a car accident or suffer a sports-related injury, you may require oral and maxillofacial surgery.
To determine the type of oral surgery you’ll most benefit from, make an appointment with your dentist at Bayside Orthodontics. At your initial consultation, your dentists will take a series of diagnostic images and discuss your concerns with you.
After gathering the necessary information, your dentist develops a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Whenever possible, the team uses conservative, noninvasive methods of care. However, if you require surgery, they know what it takes to restore your smile and oral health.
