Oral Surgery

If your dentist has recommended an oral surgeon, it’s natural to feel a bit worried about what that process may involve. However, you can be assured that the oral surgeons at Modern Dental Associates are highly skilled and very experienced, and their mission is to deliver both the best experience and the finest results available anywhere.

There are many reasons why someone might need to see an oral surgeon, ranging from needing a tooth or wisdom tooth extracted to having a dental implant placed or more complex jaw or TMJ surgery.

Oral surgery does not necessarily require general anesthesia or a stay in the hospital, and most typical procedures are done in a dental office setting with local anesthesia. What is right for you will be determined in your treatment plan and according to what is necessary in your situation.

At Modern Dental Associates, we can provide more information about what to expect and help you to feel more confident about your oral surgery. Remember, taking care of your oral health is an important part of overall wellness, and an oral surgeon can be an important ally in helping you achieve your health goals.

There are many types of oral surgery, and a few typical examples include:

  • Tooth extraction: Having a tooth removed is the most common from of oral surgery and involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This is usually done when a tooth is damaged beyond repair due to decay, injury, or disease.
  • Wisdom teeth removal: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often need to be removed due to their potential to cause problems such as pain, infection, and overcrowding.
  • Dental implants: Dental implant surgery is performed to replace missing teeth. It involves inserting a metal post into the jawbone, which acts as a support for an artificial tooth. This often involves a bone graft to create a strong foundation for the implant.
  • TMJ surgery and jaw surgery: TMJ (temporomandibular joint) surgery is performed to treat disorders of the jaw joint that cause pain and limited mobility. Other types of jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is used to correct jaw alignment.
  • Cleft lip and palate repair: This type of surgery is performed to correct a birth defect where the lip and/or palate do not fully form during fetal development.
  • Oral biopsies: Oral biopsies are performed to diagnose and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities of the mouth.

The oral surgeons at Modern Dental Associates have undergone extensive training and have acquired a wealth of knowledge and skills through years of practice.
