Oral surgery refers to a wide range of surgical procedures that focus on your teeth, jaws, and other areas of the mouth. Oral surgery can be either cosmetic or reconstructive, depending on your need and dental situation.
Some of the oral surgery options we offer at Center for Advanced Dentistry include:
Tooth extractions are necessary procedures that can protect the health of your smile. For example, if a tooth is severely infected, extracting it might be the best option to prevent further damage to other parts of your mouth. Extractions are also necessary to open up room for an impacted tooth to finally erupt through the gum tissue. Most patients need to have their wisdom teeth removed.
Implants are restorative procedures that use prosthetic (false) teeth to replicate the appearance and function of a missing tooth. Dental implants are screwed directly into the jawbone, which makes them stable and long-lasting.
If a patient has an excess amount of tissue that connects the lower and upper lips to the jaw and gum line, a frenectomy procedure is performed to remove the excess tissue. A frenectomy is either performed inside the middle-upper lip, which is called a labial frenectomy, or under the tongue, called a lingual frenectomy.
