Six Common Oral Surgeries
Posted By: admin
Most people see an oral surgeon if they know they need a specific type of surgery or have been referred by their dentist due to a complex situation. At Coal Creek Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, our Lafayette, CO team provides a wide variety of services — some of which you may have never heard of!
Here are our top six and most common oral surgery procedures:
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars are the last teeth to develop. Usually they make an appearance during the mid-teen years, but some people may be well into their late 20s before wisdom teeth ever cause problems.
Since the pressure and location of these molars can make them prone to infection or pain, they’re often removed before they negatively affect the teeth next to them.
Some types of extractions are more complex than others. Broken teeth, those with atypical roots, or individuals with complex medical concerns may not be able to undergo an extraction without the oversite of a specialist.
The integrity of your teeth and jaws rely on sound, structurally healthy bone. Bone loss is a side effect of aging and tooth loss.
If it’s starting to affect your appearance or you’re wanting to have dental implants, then a bone graft is usually the next step.
During this procedure, FDA approved osseous powder or tissue is placed within the tooth socket or jaw, triggering integration and bone development in that area.
Even though it’s relatively straightforward, getting dental implants is a form of oral surgery. Some implant cases are quite complex, requiring added sinus lifts or bone grafts in order to make them successful.
We have all of the resources necessary to ensure your new smile is a strong one.
The “eye” teeth are the pointed cuspids that erupt on either side of your front four teeth (incisors.) They’re also likely to become impacted and stuck within the bone, leading to orthodontic complications or speech concerns.
Since opening the area with braces only accomplishes the goal of creating room for the canines to come in, an extra step is necessary to help pull them down into alignment with their neighbors.
With canine exposure surgery, we gently remove the tissues that are covering each of the eye teeth, so that your orthodontist can bond a bracket and wire to them for bite alignment purposes.
What if you could get effective relief for TMJ disorder (as well as fine lines and wrinkles) without having oral surgery at all? Thanks to dermal fillers and injectables like Botox and Dysport, you can.
These cosmetic injectables double as natural muscle relaxers, offering safe and effective results for several months at a time.
If you’ve reached the point where TMJ pain and migraine headaches are no longer bearable, then it’s time to visit Coal Creak Oral Surgery!
