What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery focuses on surgical procedures that restore health to your teeth, mouth, and jaw.

What kind of oral surgery might I need?

There are numerous oral surgery procedures, but some of the more common include:

Placement of dental implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are carefully placed within the jaw. They act as replacement tooth roots for missing teeth, with a crown, bridge, or denture attached to it. People without sufficient jawbone density might need an additional procedure called a bone graft to strengthen their jaw.

Tooth extractions

You might need an extraction (removal of a tooth) if you have an impacted wisdom tooth. Because the wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge, they may not have enough room within your jaw to erupt properly. Other reasons for extractions include:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Serious tooth decay
  • Severe gum disease
  • Root fractures
  • Tooth overcrowding
  • Preparing for complete dentures

Gum surgery

Gum treatment and gum surgery is indicated when a patient has gum recession and/or periodontal (gum) disease. Dentists and oral surgeons preserve your teeth whenever possible, but an extraction might be the only solution in certain cases.

What sort of anesthesia would I need for oral surgery?

If you’re having oral surgery, you’re likely to need local anesthetic, with the option for moderate sedation. The method that suits you best depends on several factors including the type of procedure, your age, and medical history. Your surgeon can advise you on the most suitable option.

Miracle Dental Implants & Orthodontics offers intravenous (IV) and nitrous oxide sedation dentistry to ensure you feel comfortable and stay relaxed during your surgical procedure.
