A big part of our dental office workload involves oral surgery. Our Seminole, FL patients need an oral surgeon when they encounter things like impacted wisdom teeth. Many dentist offices need to refer their patients to an oral surgeon for procedures. Our office performs them in-house and saves our patients from needing to set additional appointments for the procedures. Frequent oral surgery issues we help solve include:
Impacted wisdom teeth
These third molars at the back of the mouth sometimes do not have the space to emerge from the gum line normally. They can do all kinds of things like turning on their side, become partially exposed, and damage other teeth. Frequently these abnormal situations come with a great deal of pain.
When a tooth extraction is necessary, dealing with the gap left from the old tooth is an issue that needs solving. One solution is to place a dental implant into the area. This bit of hardware is secured directly into the jawbone, producing a very firm anchor for crowns, bridges and dentures.
With all the sports leagues in Seminole, FL, we see our fair share of injuries. Vehicle accidents frequently also produce a need for help with facial traumas. In these cases, we can help to protect your mouth from damaged teeth and work toward restoring your smile.
Other more severe oral surgery procedures include dealing with TMJ disorder, corrective jaw surgery, bone grafts and oral pathology. The specialty encompasses the use of and esthetic characteristics of the hard and soft tissues of the head including the mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck.
