Oral Surgery Q & A

Oral Surgery

Q: What is oral surgery, and what types of procedures does it entail?

A: Oral surgery encompasses a range of surgical procedures performed in the oral and maxillofacial regions, including the mouth, jaws, face, and neck. These procedures are typically conducted by oral and maxillofacial surgeons, who have specialized training in both dentistry and surgery. Oral surgery may involve treatments such as tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), bone grafting, and treatment of oral pathologies such as cysts or tumors. These procedures are aimed at addressing various dental and facial issues, restoring oral health, function, and aesthetics, and relieving pain or discomfort.

Q: When might someone need oral surgery, and what are some common reasons for undergoing these procedures?

A: Oral surgery may be necessary for a variety of reasons, ranging from dental problems to facial trauma or congenital abnormalities. Some common reasons for undergoing oral surgery include:

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth that are impacted or unable to fully erupt through the gums may require surgical extraction to prevent complications such as infection, pain, or damage to neighboring teeth.
  • Tooth Extraction: Oral surgery may be necessary to remove severely decayed, damaged, or infected teeth that cannot be saved with other dental treatments.
  • Dental Implants: Oral surgeons perform implant placement surgery to replace missing teeth with artificial tooth roots, providing a stable foundation for dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
  • Jaw Alignment: Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) may be recommended to address severe bite irregularities, jaw misalignment, or facial asymmetry that cannot be corrected with orthodontic treatment alone.
  • Oral Pathologies: Oral surgeons diagnose and treat various oral pathologies, including cysts, tumors, infections, and lesions, through surgical intervention to prevent further complications or spread of disease.

These are just a few examples of the diverse range of conditions and concerns that may necessitate oral surgery. If you're experiencing dental or facial issues that may require surgical intervention, consulting with an oral surgeon can help determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific needs.  Schedule an appointment at Solay Dental by phone or request one online today.
