Common Types of Dental Surgery
At Mid-Valley Dental Care, we offer the following dental surgery treatments to restore your oral health:
- Implants – Dental implants are restorations that replace missing teeth. They are embedded into your jaw through oral surgery to fuse with your bone system and become the foundation for your replacement teeth. If you don’t have sufficient bone mass to support the implant, your dentist may recommend bone grafting to build up your jawbone before implant treatment.
- Wisdom Tooth Extraction – Impacted wisdom teeth should be removed to avoid problems with tooth infections and gum disease. An incision is made in your gum to gain access to and remove these teeth. The incision is then stitched to aid in healing.
- Oral maxillofacial surgery – This surgery helps correct defects or injuries to your face, mouth, jaw, or teeth to relieve pain, improve tooth or jaw functionality or enhance your appearance.
- Jaw surgery – Jaw surgery can be used to adjust your bite or realign your jaw after a traumatic injury. Jaw surgery can help reduce TMD pain, improve chewing, and help manage breathing disorders like obstructive sleep apnea.
All surgical procedures are done under local or general anesthesia to avoid pain and discomfort during your treatment.
