What Is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery focuses on surgical procedures involving the mouth, teeth, and jaw. Whether it’s impacted wisdom teeth, dental implants, jaw realignment, or other complex issues, oral surgery plays a critical role in restoring oral health and improving overall well-being. 

Types of Oral Surgery Procedures

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal: Often necessary due to impaction or insufficient space, wisdom teeth removal is a routine oral surgery procedure.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, involving the surgical placement of an artificial tooth root.
  • Corrective Jaw Surgery: Also known as orthognathic surgery, this procedure corrects jaw misalignments to improve bite function and facial aesthetics.
  • Oral Biopsy: A biopsy involves surgically removing tissue for pathological examination.

The Benefits of Oral Surgery

Oral surgery offers a range of significant benefits that contribute to improved oral health, enhanced aesthetics, and overall well-being. Some of the key advantages of undergoing oral surgery include:

  • Improved Oral Health: Oral surgery can address various dental issues, such as impacted wisdom teeth, dental infections, and gum disease. By addressing these problems, surgery helps prevent further complications and promotes better oral health.
  • Restored Functionality: Procedures like dental implants and corrective jaw surgery restore the functionality of your mouth. Dental implants replace missing teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Corrective jaw surgery can improve bite alignment, making chewing and speaking more comfortable.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Surgery can significantly impact your facial aesthetics. Dental implants, for instance, provide a natural-looking, seamless tooth replacement for missing teeth to restore your smile’s appearance and boost your self-confidence.
  • Pain Relief: Oral surgery can alleviate pain caused by dental issues such as impacted wisdom teeth or infections. By addressing the underlying problem, the surgery relieves discomfort and enhances your quality of life.
  • Prevention of Complications: Ignoring dental problems can lead to more severe complications over time. Surgery tackles issues at their root, preventing the progression of conditions that could otherwise result in more extensive treatments.
  • Facial Trauma Repair: In cases of facial trauma due to accidents or injuries, surgery can reconstruct damaged areas, restoring both function and aesthetics. This treatment is particularly crucial for maintaining proper facial structure and self-esteem.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Dr. Santana performs this procedure when a tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or causing crowding issues. During the extraction, we can numb the area or use dental sedation to ensure your comfort. Dr. Santana will then loosen the tooth from its attachment and remove it gently. 

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Dealing with problematic wisdom teeth can be uncomfortable and painful. Dr. Santana provides wisdom tooth extraction, making the procedure as smooth and comfortable as possible. Removing these teeth can prevent future oral health issues, such as crowding, infection, and impaction, and alleviate discomfort.

Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Santana’s precise approach ensures that implants are placed securely and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Whether you need a single implant or All-On-4, Dr. Santana’s knowledge guarantees a stunning smile restoration.
