Oral surgery is a dental specialty that focuses on the correction of dental health problems through surgical means.
Types of oral surgery
These are the most common types of oral surgery that we perform at Mel Mel Dental in Wappingers Falls:
Dental Implants: This is a permanent and non-removable method for replacing teeth lost to disease or trauma. Comfort, convenience and improved oral health are just some of the benefits dental implants offer.
Tooth extraction: You may need one or more teeth extracted due to; a trauma to the mouth, a failed root canal, as part of an orthodontic treatment plan or because of severe decay. Although rare, some patients also need primary teeth extracted that never came out on their own.
If your regular dentist feels you need oral surgery, he/she will refer you to our oral surgeon on staff. You have the opportunity to meet with him/her before your surgery, so you know exactly what to expect.
