It can be alarming to hear your dentist mention oral surgery as a treatment option for your dental issues.
However, oral surgery is safe and precise due to advanced dental technology that allows accuracy like never before. To help you fear the idea of oral and maxillofacial surgery less, we have provided some information about oral surgery and some common surgeries performed in our dental office. Oral surgery is available in both practices, so you may see a dentist in Manalapan, NJ, or Manhattan, NYC for a surgery consultation.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery & maxillofacial surgery is performed on tissues within and around the mouth. This includes the gums, teeth, head, face, and jaw. Our dentists at FakatorDMD may recommend oral surgery when other non-invasive options have been explored and may not work efficiently.
Common Types of Oral Surgery
There are a variety of dental procedures that may be performed by dentists depending on your specific issue. Some common surgeries performed on our patients in both our Manalapan, NJ, and Manhattan, NYC practices include:
Wisdom tooth removal: Some people have wisdom teeth that grow in with no problem. However, others may experience problems when teeth become impacted, or the mouth becomes too crowded. When this occurs, removal may be required to preserve oral health.
Treatment of sleep apnea: This sleep disorder can be treated in several ways, including using a mouthguard or machine. Oral surgery can remove tissues that block the airways and exacerbate sleep apnea symptoms.
Reconstructive surgery: Our dentists are trained to diagnose problems with the jaw and treat injuries that require surgery. This will improve your overall appearance and relieve symptoms and pain that are associated with jaw issues.
Dental implants: Dental implants can replace missing teeth in the mouth permanently. Titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone surgically, and attachments are connected that allows a replacement crown that looks like your natural teeth to be placed.
