Oral surgery refers to any dental procedure that surgically addresses a problem of the teeth or jaw. Tooth extraction is the most common type of oral surgery. This is sometimes needed when you have impacted teeth or if a tooth is wedged behind another tooth. Pulling a tooth can help with crowding issues, decayed or badly damaged teeth, or teeth that can’t be saved through a root canal procedure.
Removing wisdom teeth through oral surgery is also common, as these teeth tend to create spacing and crowding issues or pain.
At Lombard Dental Studio, oral surgery is performed in-office, under the care of an expert dental specialist. Oral surgery usually requires local or general anesthesia, and you can return home on the same day.
A tooth extraction procedure can be simple or complex, depending on the severity of the problem and your oral health.
In a simple extraction, your dentist uses delicate tools to help loosen the tooth from its roots and extract the tooth. In a more complex extraction, he makes an incision along your gum line to remove the tooth. If you have a tooth that is likely to crumble or break when extracted, or if you have an impacted tooth, the extraction may be more invasive and the healing time could take longer.
Even if you have pristine dental hygiene habits, sometimes oral surgery is necessary to prevent long-term problems or complications. If you have an issue that may require oral surgery, contact Lombard Dental Studio right away. The sooner you receive treatment, the better results you can expect to have.
Oral surgery not only addresses immediate problems like decay, crowding, or misplaced teeth, but it can also ensure your teeth and jaw maintain the right structure to support your oral health.
If a tooth is causing pain or discomfort, oral surgery can help to resolve underlying issues such as headaches, tooth sensitivity, or aching in the jaw.
