Oral surgery is performed to treat injuries and defects around the neck, face, head and jaw. The most common procedures are dental implants, tooth extractions, and reconstructive surgery. At Sherwood Park Dental, we perform a variety surgical treatments to our patients.
Here are several conditions that may require oral surgery:
- Impacted Wisdom Tooth - Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop. It not properly aligned, they can become impacted between the gums and the jawbone, which can be very painful, requiring the removal of the teeth.
- Dental Implants - To replace a missing tooth, your dentist will surgically implant a metal post in your jawbone, which will fuse with the bone and tissue over time. Dental implants are excellent for those with tooth loss who are looking for a long-term treatment option.
- Jaw Surgery -Improper jaw alignment can cause a variety of complications. Surgery can be used to restore function and correct this issue.
