What Are the Most Common Types of Oral Surgery?

Although you may require oral surgery for various reasons, here are the most common ones we perform:

Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are notorious for causing a host of dental problems. They often become impacted or trapped between the jawbone and the gum tissue, leading to infection, which can damage the nearby teeth and bone. We may recommend the removal of problematic wisdom teeth to prevent any complications. Most patients recover from the procedure with minimal discomfort in just a few days.

Implant Surgery: Dental implants offer an outstanding solution to restore one or more missing teeth. The procedure involves placing screw-like titanium posts to replace your natural tooth roots. Your implants will provide a stable and secure foundation to support implant restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. Implant surgery is a predictable and safe procedure, with a more than 95 percent success rate.

Bone Grafts: Implant surgery requires adequate bone mass to ensure the procedure's success. If you've been missing one or more teeth for a while and the bone in the area has deteriorated, a bone graft will ensure you are a candidate for an implant. The surgery involves making a small incision in the gums to access the bone and placing grafting material. Your body will build new bone around the graft, leaving you with sufficient bone mass to support your dental implant.

Reconstructive Surgery: Accidents often result in damage to the teeth or face. Our dental team will evaluate your unique condition and recommend a fully customized treatment protocol that ensures the best possible outcomes. If you have damaged teeth, broken facial bones, or injury to your jaws, our dentist will perform reconstructive surgery to restore your bone structure and teeth alignment.
