Oral Surgeons are a vital component of the dental network. These highly skilled clinicians have extended education to assist patients with the following concerns
TOOTH EXTRACTIONS: Perhaps the most common procedure an oral surgeon performs, tooth extractions are often necessary when wisdom teeth begin to grow in at an improper angle or placement. Some tooth extractions may also be necessary from severe injury or infection.
DENTAL IMPLANTS: Often a preferred method of tooth replacement over dentures or bridges, dental implants involve an embedded screw within the jawbone fitted with a
cap that matches the client’s teeth. Implants require a sound knowledge of the jawbone and surrounding areas in order to ensure the procedure’s success.
ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY (CORRECTIVE JAW SURGERY): This surgery is sometimes needed to correct a misaligned bite that cannot be corrected through orthodontics. This surgery can also be needed for repairing congenital abnormalities, or birth defects, such as cleft palate.
TREAT FACIAL TRAUMA: Oral surgeons can reconnect severed nerves, set fractured jaw and facial bones, and repair minor to complex facial skin lacerations. They treat facial injuries involving the oral tissues, jaws, cheek and nasal bones, eye sockets, and the forehead.
ALLEVIATE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH TMJ: Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) can cause severe discomfort and pain for those affected. Oral surgeons are able to perform joint surgery for advanced cases of TMJ, alleviating headaches and severe facial pain.
