Oral Surgery in Coral Springs, FL

Many dental issues can’t be corrected using simple procedures and require invasive treatments. Severe tooth decay, extensive damage, teeth grinding, and similar matters may need oral surgical procedures. At Optimum Dentistry, we provide a wide range of oral surgery services in our Coral Springs clinic. Our dentist has extensive experience in this field and has performed several surgical procedures with great success.

Dr. Santana is often conservative in these treatments and will only recommend oral surgery if you genuinely need it. He will examine your mouth to assess the condition of the teeth and provide you with options to give you optimal oral health. Our goal is to help patients make informed decisions, especially when it comes to surgical procedures.

When is Oral Surgery Required?

Oral surgery is only required if the problem can’t be treated with milder and less invasive options. Here’s a look at the different issues that need oral surgery:

  • Impacted Teeth – Impacted teeth are trapped between the gum tissue and jawbone. They don’t emerge fully and often create loose tissue pockets that can attract bacteria and lead to severe infection. This usually happens in the case of wisdom teeth because they have less room to emerge fully. Our dentist will perform oral surgery to remove these impacted teeth and eliminate the vulnerability.

  • Tooth Loss – There are many different causes of tooth loss, and all of them require some surgical procedures. If your tooth is severely decayed, our dentist will have to remove it and clear all the infected dental matter. If the tooth has a severe crack or broken, he will need to either perform a root canal or extract the tooth to eliminate the possibility of an infection. Once the surgery is completed, a tooth implant may be recommended to replace the missing tooth.

  • Jaw-Related Issues – Problems like unequal jaw and temporomandibular joint disorders also require extensive surgery to ensure the jaw is aligned correctly. If these conditions are left untreated, they can cause significant harm to your natural teeth. 

Dr. David Santana can perform tooth extractions, place implants, perform corrective jaw surgery, and much more. Almost all of these procedures are performed under local anesthesia in our dental office.
