The Process of Oral Surgery 

We will systematically assess your oral health and decide the best course of action, which includes surgery. It may be a simple tooth extraction, dental implant placements, bone grafting procedures, or facial reconstruction. Before proceeding with the surgery, we will assess your overall general health to ensure you do not have any chronic conditions.

Common Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeries

  • Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth. It involves the surgical placements of implant posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. The implants offer a permanent remedy for tooth loss and restoration of aesthetics and functionality.

  • Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are performed to remove decayed, damaged, or infected teeth that are beyond repair. Also, surgery is the only way to remove impacted wisdom teeth embedded below the gum line.

  • Bone Grafts

Jawbone tissues may be lost during teeth extraction or periodontal disease. Bone grafting procedures can restore the lost bone and jaw structure. It involves placing donor tissues in the deficit area to augment bone density.

  • Tumor and Cyst Removal 

If there is a cyst or benign tumor in the jawbone, it can be removed in a simple surgery without disturbing the surrounding structure.

  • Facial Reconstruction

A hard blow sometimes leads to a cracked or fractured jawbone. This situation requires urgent oral surgery. The pain can be excruciating, and if not treated in time, it may lead to a permanent change in the facial shape. 

  • Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Surgery

TMJ disorders are problems in your jaw joint that happen when these joints and the chewing muscles do not work properly. They cause pain, stiffness, or lack of mobility in your TMJ, obstructing your jawbone movement. Surgery can help address a TMJ disorder if conventional treatments like mouthguards or oral splints have not helped reduce the severity of your symptoms.
