Sometimes, in order to maintain a complete and healthy smile, your dentist may recommend treatment options that involve oral surgery. Treatments that require oral surgery may include tooth extractions, root canals, bone grafts and placement of dental implants. At Cedar Mountain Dental, our compassionate dental staff works to ensure that treatment with oral surgery is as pain-free as possible, offering sedation dentistry options to help provide you with maximum comfort during your dental appointment.
What is oral surgery?
Oral surgery is any surgical procedure that is used to diagnose or treat dental conditions of the mouth. Oral surgery takes place in the comfort of your dentist’s office along with the use of anesthesia to help keep you relaxed throughout the duration of surgery. While healing time varies from patient to patient, recovery time after oral surgery is often minimal. Reasons for oral surgery include pain relief, treatment of dental infection or injury, and to improve the appearance of your smile or its function.
Oral surgery procedures may include:
- Root canal
- Tooth extraction e.g., wisdom tooth
- Dental bone graft
- Dental implants
- Reconstructive dental surgery
- Sleep apnea surgery
- Maxillofacial surgery
- Diagnosis and biopsies
