What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is any type of surgical procedure that takes place in the jaw or mouth. There are lots of different types of oral surgery procedures. At StarImage Dentistry, we make sure your oral surgery procedure is as comfortable and seamless as possible. To help you feel more comfortable, we offer sedation dentistry like oral conscious sedation and NuCalm. Your oral surgery will take place in the same office you’ve been visiting for all your dental procedures. Our warm and welcoming team will be there to help you have a positive experience.
Types of Oral Surgery Procedures We Offer
To help you get all the oral health care you need under the same room, we offer a wide range of oral surgery services. Our oral surgery treatments include the following.
Oftentimes, when a tooth is damaged beyond repair, you have gum disease or a serious infection, tooth extraction might be necessary. Extractions also might be necessary to make room in your mouth for new teeth or for braces. We can help with all types of extractions and replacement options.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The majority of people will need their wisdom teeth removed in order to prevent complications and further dental problems. Wisdom teeth begin to grow during the late teens or early twenties, and if they’re impacted or there’s not enough room, they need to be extracted. Not everyone gets all four wisdom teeth.
One of our most popular oral surgery procedures is Teeth-In-A-Day which is a revolutionary procedure that allows you to replace your missing teeth with dental implants in just one day. Teeth-In-A-Day uses four to six dental implants to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. We can extract and replace your teeth during the same appointment.
Losing a natural tooth means losing the root that holds the crown in place. With dental implants, we can replace your missing tooth root and support replacement teeth by using dental implants. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jaw bone.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
All our procedures use a minimally invasive approach. In other words, we do everything in our power to harm as little surrounding bone and tissue as possible during surgery. We only touch the bone and tissue necessary for your procedure. Our minimally invasive approach helps ensure better results and faster recovery.
With tooth loss also comes bone loss unless you immediately replace your missing teeth with dental implants. Sufficient bone density is necessary to hold dental implants in place. Fortunately, bone grafting can help restore the missing bone to help support dental implants and restore youthful proportions to your facial appearance.
With gum disease, it’s also possible to experience gum loss and receding gums. Gum grafting can help your gums return to their youthful state.
