Common Oral Surgery Procedures
Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. Generally a simple procedure, tooth extraction can be completed right in the dentist’s office. During this procedure, your dentist gently pulls your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. Other forms of tooth extractions that we offer are wisdom tooth and impacted canine removals, which are often more complex and can take up to a few hours to complete.
Wisdom teeth are the final four molars (typically appearing between the ages of
17–25) that many people don’t have enough space for in their mouths. This often causes them to grow improperly, overcrowding your teeth, sometimes resulting in damage to your bite. Our pain-free extractions and restorative plans, keep your smile bright.
A ridge augmentation may be performed after a tooth extraction to ensure the natural contour of your gums. This procedure treats bone loss due to the extraction or other dental disorders. It is sometimes necessary prior to your dental implant placement, as well as for esthetics.
A sinus lift is sometimes required during your bone grafting procedure. This specialized oral surgery treatment gives you more room for jawbone volume to support dental implants or dentures. Missing teeth or bone loss due to periodontal disease may cause your jawbone to become thinner over time. A sinus lift may be recommended to ensure your dental implants remain securely in place.
Bone grafting is a specialized oral surgery treatment that involves replacing bone levels in the jaw. Usually due to missing teeth, bone loss is ongoing and needs to be treated to support a denture or dental implants. A bone grafting procedure involves taking bone from the patient or a donor source, then placing it at the site of bone resorption. Once the sutures are in place, the area is allowed to heal for a few months, to let the bone grafting material and jawbone integrate.
A permanent replacement for missing teeth, dental implants are made up of three parts—the post, abutment and restoration. Dental implant posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone to anchor a new tooth or set of teeth. Modern dental implant surgery is precise, especially when computed tomography (CT) guided technology is used. Immediate load of a temporary restoration may also be available for qualifying patients!
