What Are Common Types of Oral Surgery?

The following are the most common types of surgery we perform at Dental Care of North Carolina:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium screw-shaped posts we place in your jawbone to replace a tooth’s missing roots. That helps provide a secure foundation to support implant restorations, including crowns, bridges, and implant-supported dentures.

Restoring one or more of your missing teeth with dental implants is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make for your smile. Your new replacement teeth will look and function just like your natural teeth! 

Teeth Extractions

At Dental Care of North Carolina, our primary goal is always to maintain natural, healthy teeth. However, there are times a tooth is damaged beyond repair, leaving extraction as the only viable option. Moreover, wisdom teeth frequently require extraction. That’s because these third molars are notorious for causing a host of problems, including being impacted or trapped in the jawbone, which may lead to infection and damage to the nearby teeth and bone.

There are two types of extraction. Simple and surgical. A simple tooth removal is required when the tooth is readily available and accessible. A surgical procedure, on the other hand, is necessary if the tooth is weak, impacted, or broken at the gum line.

Jaw Surgery

There are several reasons we may recommend jaw surgery. Accidents sometimes cause injury to the jaw, requiring reconstructive surgery to restore your natural bone structure and teeth alignment.

In some cases, a jaw that’s not correctly aligned or has unequal growth will require surgical intervention. That’s because it may interfere with chewing, talking, breathing, and swallowing. Moreover, jaw surgery may be indicated to treat a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

Will You Require Oral Surgery?

Our team will use any conservative treatment available to restore your oral health before recommending surgical intervention. If we feel you need oral surgery, we will refer you to our oral surgeon on staff. You’ll have an opportunity to schedule a consultation before your procedure so that you know what to expect.
