Common Oral Surgery Procedures

Awkward teeth removal:

If teeth do not erupt out of the gums like they are supposed to, they can cause problems such as crowding, infections or ill tissue. However, this can be fixed with a simple tooth extraction. We will monitor your mouth and recommend if any uneven teeth should be removed to preserve the full integrity of your mouth.

Wisdom teeth removal:

Wisdom teeth are very commonly removed because many jaws are not large enough to house them. If they do not develop properly, they can become infected, cause swelling, as well as shifting of other teeth.

Improve fit of dentures:

Sometimes dentures can fit awkwardly if a jaw has irregularities or is missing support of the dentures. To help your dentures fit more contentedly, we can correct these irregularities through bone grafts.

Dental implants:

Dental implants are tooth root alternates placed in the jawbone. Synthetic teeth are then attached to the temporary root, which is actually a titanium rod. Dental implants are an option to replace one tooth, several teeth, or even all of your teeth. Learn more about dental implants.

Unequal jaw growth:

If your upper or lower jaw does not develop properly, it can cause difficulty eating or swallowing. In extreme cases, oral surgery can create a jaw structure that is more balanced and functional.

Cleft lip and cleft palate repair.

A cleft palate is a birth defect in which portions of the nasal cavity and mouth don’t grow together properly. This results in a split or gap in the roof of the mouth, lip or both.

Facial infections:

An infection in the face, neck or jaws may require an oral surgeon to drain the infected area and extract any teeth that may be causing the infection or affected by it.

Facial injury repair:

We can perform surgery to repair broken bones in the face and ensure that the break does not result in an infection or damage of surrounding teeth.

Snoring/sleep apnea:

If you experience severe snoring or sleep apnea and other treatment methods have been ineffective, we can perform oral surgery to correct these issues.
