Oral surgery is a form of dentistry that is performed to treat injuries and defects around the neck, face, head and jaw. The most common oral surgeries are placing dental implants, tooth extractions, and reconstructive dental oral surgery. At Sherwood Park Dental, we offer oral surgery to our patients who are suffering from dental diseases.
Here are several conditions that may require oral surgery:
- Impacted Wisdom Tooth - This tooth is the last tooth to develop in our mouth. Sometimes, wisdom tooth may erupt and not causing any problems in our mouth. But if this tooth is not properly aligned, it becomes impacted between the gums and the jawbone.
- Dental Implants - It is the condition where you need to replace a missing tooth. Our dentist will surgically implant a metal post into your jawbone, which will fuse with the bone and tissue over time. Dental implants are excellent for those with tooth loss who are looking for a long-term treatment option.
- Jaw Surgery - If your jaws are not aligned, it can cause appearance problem and its function. Surgery is commonly needed to correct this issue and restore function.
