An oral surgeon can help with issues ranging from wisdom teeth and impacted teeth to jaw misalignment and bone loss. Oral surgeons are also able to treat chronic diseases or conditions that derive from issues of the mouth. While oral surgeons may be needed for the removal of wisdom teeth or for dental implants, oral surgeon Aurora can also perform a number of other diverse procedures, like corrective jaw surgery and TMJ treatment, oral pathology, tooth extraction, and more. We are experts dedicated to giving you the best service.
Some of the most common surgeries for teeth and jaw include:
We offer many of the same services you’ll find when visiting an oral surgeon, saving you time and ensuring your dental care is provided by someone you already know and have come to trust.
Here are some of the main dental issues you may someday require an oral surgeon’s help with:
Wisdom teeth are often the culprits when an impacted tooth is an issue, but any tooth can make you suffer. A tooth becomes impacted when there isn’t enough space in your gums to hold the tooth – as it tries to break through the gums, it can cause sore gums and infections. In the case of wisdom teeth, most often the best course of treatment is an extraction.
Used to replace missing teeth, most experienced general dentists are now making this treatment available for their patients. During the first stage of treatment – the oral surgery – small titanium or ceramic artificial tooth root is placed into your jawbone. To ensure predictable results every time, we use CEREC technology to accurately plan and create guides to ensure your dental implant is placed precisely for the best results. When your jawbone has fully grown around the replacement root, the implant is restored with a natural-looking porcelain crown that is permanently placed on the post. CEREC same-day crown technology allows us to take an impression and custom-mill a crown so we could perform a same-day dental implant restoration.
Most people have their wisdom teeth, or “third molars,” erupt between age 16 and 20. Oftentimes there isn’t enough room in the mouth for these teeth, and this can cause some serious oral issues.
If you have a condition involving the teeth, jaws, or bones and tissues of the face that causes you pain and prevents you from performing normal activities you may need to see a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery such as the team members at Summit OMS, to correct the abnormally, relieve the pain, and allow you to return to a normal life.
All maxillofacial surgeons are also oral surgeons, but not all oral surgeons are maxillofacial surgeons. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon has more advanced medical training than an oral surgeon and has the knowledge and certification to perform more procedures in more areas of the face.
Oral surgeons are so-called because their practices are confined almost entirely to treating conditions within the mouth. The following are treatments that oral surgeon Aurora can perform:
