Oral Surgery

Tooth Extractions:

Sometimes, when teeth develop cavities, injuries and trauma, the damage to the structure becomes too extensive; they are no longer viable and may create additional problems in the oral cavity. In these cases, the best option may be to remove the tooth. Extractions, more frequently recognized as having a tooth pulled, can be an option to get rid of infection, inflammation, pain, swelling and discomfort that is coming from the damage and exposure of the tooth. The procedure consists of numbing the affected area, and using surgical forceps to remove the tooth. Afterwards, based on the condition of the patients’ gum and bone structure, collagen and bone grafting may be appropriate to help the healing process.

In addition, sometimes tooth extractions need to be done to allow for the remaining teeth to shift into their correct positions and to aid in the alignment of our dentition.

Oral & maxillofacial surgery:

Oral & Maxillofacial surgery treats defects, diseases and injuries of the mouth, jaw, neck and face. This is usually done in order to correct issues via reconstruction of the face, facial trauma surgery, the mouth, the head and neck. These may include deformities, bony growths, tumors and other sorts of lacerations that can be repaired with grafts, cosmetic surgeries and corrective jaw surgeries.

Wisdom Tooth Removal:

In some cases, teeth that have poor angulation and are considered to be impacted and need to be removed. These occur frequently in wisdom teeth, which may be in contact with other teeth. Their growth can cause root fractures, cavities, and overcrowding of the other teeth in the arch. This can cause pain, swelling and an increased risk of infections localized to that area. Here, extractions are necessary to prevent these issues from becoming more severe. The oral surgeon will anesthetize the area, open the socket, and will use surgical handheld instruments to remove the tooth from its position. The healing process usually takes upwards of two to three weeks and we ask that our patients come back in for a postoperative visit to ensure that the surgical site is healing well.

Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder Treatment

  • Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder Treatment, more commonly known as TMJ is an extremely common condition. Patients usually experience pain and discomfort in their jaw joint. This pain can radiate through the lower jaw and parts of the face, neck and head. Many individuals complain that they hear and feel clicking upon eating, chewing and opening and closing their mouths. There are numerous causes for TMJ disorders, which usually stem from clenching and grinding of the teeth. This is usually done unknowingly throughout daily activities or at night when asleep. Other causes may include stress, friction during the movement of the joint, arthritis, and wear and tear from the tightening of the facial muscles.

  • In order to create a cushion between both arches and to reduce the tension from clenching of the jaw, certain dental appliances can be used. Occlusal guard hard appliances, also known as night guards can be worn during sleep to prevent the incisal grinding and to combat the clenching.
