What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery may sound intimidating, but it’s a procedure that helps people in many ways. It’s a field of dentistry that specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the mouth, jaws, and face. Oral surgeons can help repair injuries, remove impacted teeth, treat gum disease, and reconstruct damaged areas. Although the idea of surgery can be nerve-wracking, it’s important to remember that oral surgeons are highly skilled professionals who take pride in providing patients with the best care possible. Our expertise and dedication can make a world of difference in restoring oral health and improving quality of life.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

One of the most common oral surgeries we perform is the removal of wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge in the mouth, typically appearing in the late teens or early twenties. Unfortunately, these teeth often come in misaligned or impacted, causing pain, infection, and other dental issues. Removing wisdom teeth is a routine procedure that can prevent these problems and improve overall oral health. Our team is here to guide you through the process, answer any questions you may have, and ensure that your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Wisdom teeth can cause a lot of trouble for some people. While some individuals may never experience any problems with their wisdom teeth, others may find that their back molars are causing mouth pain, swelling, and even infection. That’s why we recommend their removal, especially if there’s not enough room in your mouth for them to develop properly. If left unchecked, wisdom teeth can cause a variety of issues, including gum disease, tooth decay, misalignment of other teeth, and even cysts or tumors. While the procedure to remove these troublesome molars can be uncomfortable, most dentists will work to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the process, so that you can get back to enjoying a healthy, pain-free mouth as soon as possible.

Oral surgery can be a bothersome thought for many people, but with the advances in sedation dentistry, the process can now be much more comfortable and stress-free. Two popular options are oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. Oral conscious sedation involves taking a pill that will help you relax and reduce any anxiety you might feel. Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas and can be administered through a mask. It takes effect quickly and wears off just as fast, making it a great option for those with busy schedules. Both methods ensure you remain conscious during the procedure and are safe to use. These options are particularly helpful for those who struggle with dental anxiety or have complex surgical needs. With the right sedation option, oral surgery can be a breeze, giving you a healthier and happier smile.

From wisdom tooth removal to more complex procedures, we have the expertise and equipment necessary to provide you with the best possible care.
