Patients need oral surgery for different reasons. All Care Dental by the Sea can take care of your oral surgery needs. When it comes to dental extractions, there are simple and surgical ones. Wisdom teeth are the most commonly extracted teeth. If a wisdom tooth is impacted, we’ll have to perform oral surgery to remove it. These procedures are common, and wisdom teeth are accessory teeth that don’t need to be replaced.
During checkups, we examine the mouth for abnormalities like masses, ulcers, or areas of discoloration. These lesions could be tumors or precancerous. We’ll have to biopsy them to find out. There’s no reason to panic, though. Many of these lesions end up being benign. If they turn out to be cancer, we’ll see what we can do to treat it.
Dental implants are the latest way of replacing missing teeth. They’re great because they’re durable and last a lifetime for most patients. We’ll need to place a screw into your jawbone so we can attach the artificial tooth to it. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants are attached to the jawbone, just like natural teeth.
Patients who had to endure severe trauma to the face or major surgery often desire reconstructive surgery. In reconstructive surgery, we’ll repair teeth, gums, and bones. If something can’t be repaired, we might be able to use a graft from somewhere else. For example, ribs can often be used as grafts for mandible repairs. We’ll always tell you your options and let you decide.
