What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery treats complex dental issues involving your teeth, gums, and jaw. Typical forms of oral surgery include wisdom teeth extraction and dental implants.

You can plan an oral surgery, or your provider can perform oral surgery in an emergency situation or if you’re in extreme pain.

During oral surgery, your provider gives you a local anesthetic with a sedative to keep you comfortable and avoid pain. If the procedure is longer, a general anesthetic can put you to sleep.

When would I need oral surgery?

After a thorough oral exam, your provider could recommend oral surgery if you have:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Periodontal (gum) disease
  • Severe overbite or underbite
  • Impacted teeth (like wisdom teeth)
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)
  • Loss of bone in your jaw
  • Oral cancer

Oral surgery can relieve painful symptoms, prevent infection, and avoid further tooth decay and teeth or jaw misalignment.

What types of oral surgery are there?

Montrose Dental Specialty offers several innovative and effective oral surgeries.

Tooth extraction

You might need a tooth extraction if it’s necessary to remove your wisdom teeth or if you have severe gum disease or extensive tooth decay.

Your provider might need to extract a tooth to prepare you for a cosmetic procedure like dentures or dental implants.

Periodontal surgery

Periodontal surgery, which treats gum disease, involves your provider making a small incision along your gumline. They then pull back the tissue, remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth roots, and reposition your gums.

Dental bone graft

You might need a dental bone graft if you’re missing a tooth and plan to receive a dental implant. This procedure strengthens the bone near the lost tooth and prepares your jawbone for an implant.

Dental implants

Your oral surgeon places a titanium metal post into your jawbone during dental implant surgery. The post fuses with your bone over a few months. When you return, your provider attaches an artificial but natural-looking tooth.

Before receiving an implant, your provider might recommend sinus bone augmentation. This surgery raises your sinus floor, creating space and forming new bone.

Jaw alignment

This oral surgery involves your dentist altering the position of your jaw. This can treat bite problems, sleep apnea, and TMD.
