Besides an Extraction What Other Reason Would I Need an Oral Surgeon?

April 22nd, 2019

There are many reasons you would need to see an oral surgeon other than for a dental extraction. Choosing Avalon Dental Care for your needs will ensure you receive quality, gentle care using cutting-edge procedures. We are committed to excellence, with your comfort and well-being as our primary concerns. Following are some common reasons you may need to see an oral surgeon.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more of your teeth, dental implants offer a solution to restore your smile. Implants are titanium tooth root replacements, similar in shape to screws that we surgically anchor to your jawbone. The implants bond with your natural bone, providing support to artificial teeth called crowns, that look, feel, and function like your natural ones. No other tooth replacements can begin to compare to the strength, durability, and aesthetics of dental implants. 

Emergency Dental Surgery

Facial injuries including knocked out teeth, broken facial bones, or gum and jawbone damage may require emergency dental surgery. Our oral surgeon will do everything needed to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Jaw-Related Problems

If you have chronic jaw pain, you may need surgery to correct jaw problems including unequal jaw growth or a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Jaw surgery can improve your appearance, along with relieving pain and helping you chew food normally. 

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a serious condition that can affect your health if not addressed. If nonsurgical methods fail to treat the condition, surgery may be recommended. The procedure involves our oral surgeon removing soft tissues in the back of your mouth or the lower jaw, clearing the airway and alleviating symptoms. 

Lesion Removal and Biopsies

If any abnormal tissue is identified in your mouth, our oral surgeon can take a sample to send it to a laboratory for testing. Some lesions may also need to be removed.
