What Oral Surgical Procedures Do We Perform?
Many patients experience uncomfortable symptoms that require the more specific care of an oral surgeon. Our team of experienced oral surgeons perform a wide range of surgical procedures.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
There are a many reasons why an oral surgeon may decide that a tooth needs to be extracted. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they fail to align properly and eventually erupt in the mouth. Wisdom teeth can take many awkward positions as they attempt to erupt. Some may partially emerge in the mouth, while others may stay trapped beneath the gum and bone. These problems can have a significant impact on a patient’s oral health.
We offer several dental implants options that cater to each patient’s individual needs. Dental implants are placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. They act as solid anchors where natural looking teeth can be permanently attached. Dental implants can also involve a dental crown, dental bridge, partial, or complete denture. Some patients require bone grafting to rebuild the jawbone and make it suitable for dental implants.
Dental implants function like natural teeth, anchor the jawbone, and prevent bone loss. We also offer some of our patients the option for temporary but fully functional teeth in one appointment with our Teeth in a Day procedure.
Orthognathic surgery can help patients with troubling oral conditions in a number of ways. Our oral surgeons routinely perform surgical procedures for patients who experienced a jaw injury or who were born with an irregular bite. Patients can expect many benefits from this surgery.
TMJ pain can be caused by teeth grinding, structural issues in the jaw, or gum disease. When the problem is severe and conservative methods fail, an oral surgeon may confirm the issue with an MRI scan and recommend TMJ surgery.
Types of TMJ surgeries include:
- Arthroscopy/arthrocentesis: Fluid is injected into the joint to help reduce inflammation, stiffness, and pain. This also helps improve range of motion in the jaw. Both procedures are less invasive than open surgery and require less recovery time.
- Joint restructuring: Some conditions require smoothing the condyle and restructuring the joint. In other cases, the natural joint needs to be replaced with an artificial joint. Our oral surgeons provide these procedures for patients with badly deteriorating joints.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) include snoring, disruptive sleep cycles, and daytime sleepiness. The dangers of untreated OSA can be much more serious than patients may realize. OSA can lead to dangerous conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. It can also cause severe reactions to medications or incidents of drowsy driving, all of which can have deadly consequences. Our surgeons offer several treatment options for patients dealing with OSA.
How Should I Prepare for My Initial Consultation?
Prepare for your initial consultation by gathering the information needed for the appointment. Bring a photo ID, referral documents, copies of any recent X-rays, and your insurance information.
During the initial consultation, an oral surgeon will review your medical history, including any allergies, chronic illnesses, prior surgeries, and current medications. It may be determined that additional X-rays or a CT scan is needed to help diagnose your issue. After a thorough examination, your oral surgeon will take time to discuss your condition, treatment options, and what to expect from the process. Any questions or concerns you may have about your oral surgery can be addressed at your initial consultation or any other time.
