Oral Surgery

The primary focus of oral surgery is the surgical diagnosis and correction of dental disorders, injuries, and deformities that affect both the function and appearance of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaw. Dental and maxillofacial implants, dentoalveolar surgery to remove impacted teeth, aesthetic surgery and orthognathic surgery, sometimes known as corrective jaw surgery, are some of the problems that can be treated with oral surgery. We offer a variety of oral surgery procedures to help you achieve a beautiful smile and a positive self-image.

Why is oral surgery performed?

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Gum illness.
  • Lacking teeth
  • Abnormalities of the temporomandibular joint (TMD)
  • Bone loss in the jaw.
  • Apneic sleep
  • Oral cancers
  • Harmless oral pathology

Benefits of Oral surgery:

Oral surgery can have a positive impact on patients’ oral health:

1. Long-term replacement of a single missing tooth: An implant offers a long-lasting solution versus a traditional bridge, crown or denture which isn’t a permanent solution and can cause other complications down the road. 

2. Restore deficiencies and prevent lasting harm: Mandibular and maxillary jaw issues are frequently progressive, meaning that if treated, Bose loss may worsen. However, with bone grafting methods like L-PRF, bone deficiencies can be cured before they worsen. Many types of soft tissue and bone grafts can be used to replace the missing tissue.

3. Address the root of the issue: Rather than only treating the symptoms, oral surgery can address the root of the issue. For instance, jaw alignment orthognathic surgery can be done in coordination with an orthodontist.

Benefits of Oral surgery

4. Regaining a positive self-image: Oral surgery may enable a healthy and beautiful smile which can boost self confidence.

5. Prevent tooth loss: If oral surgery, such as dental implants, is completed in a timely manner, it can help avoid tooth loss and the need to replace teeth, particularly if lost due to an infection or an injury.

6. Regain your smile:  Those who experience disorders that impact the teeth, such as missing teeth, a cleft palate, a misaligned jaw, or a noticeable tumor on your lip or gums, can consider oral surgery.

How long does oral surgery take?

The type of oral surgery, the number of teeth being treated, and whether the patient opts for sedation, will affect how long the surgery lasts. An extraction of one tooth typically takes 30 minutes, whereas a more complicated procedure, such as corrective jaw surgery, usually takes two to three hours.

I needed some repair when I cracked a molar. I searched for dentists and found Wilmot Family, and I was most pleased! Really nice people, efficient and professional and friendly. Dr. Lyman was great. Like many people, I am somewhat apprehensive about dental work... and I was pleasantly surprised - a great experience. And Thanks to Martin for his work and friendly approach as well. I will be going back for more routine care in the future!
