Oral surgery is a crucial part of dentistry. At our dental practice, we thoroughly assess every patient and take utmost care to ensure oral surgeries are carried out without any hassle or complications.
Common dental surgeries
Impacted wisdom tooth removal: Wisdom teeth are usually the last set of teeth to erupt, mostly when the individual is in their late teens. Although wisdom teeth emerge like any other regular ones, a certain complication during this process could make them get stuck in the socket, leading to a very painful condition. If left untreated, it could lead to an infection. Hence, the best way to treat this condition is through oral surgery. We will administer local anesthesia and extract the tooth, either in one piece or in smaller fragments.
External oral trauma: Injury to the tissues of the mouth can lead to damaged teeth, cut or severely bruised soft tissues, profuse bleeding, etc. Such conditions can be highly painful and have to be treated at the earliest. In the case of damaged teeth, we will treat them using medication and suggest ceramic restorations to restore their shape and structural integrity. Some of the popular restorations used in such instances are dental crowns, veneers, composite bonding, fillings, etc.
Dental implantation: A dental implant is the best means to replace a missing tooth. It is an extremely strong and long-lasting restoration, owing to the fact that it is placed directly in the jawbone. This gives the implant the required strength, stability, and also protects the underlying bone. A thorough screening procedure is performed before we commence dental implantation surgery.
Some of the other common dental surgeries are extractions, bone grafts, gum grafts, jawbone shaping surgery, etc. We will administer suitable sedatives to make sure the procedure doesn't cause pain or discomfort.
