Common Oral Surgery Procedures
Dental Implants: Ideal for patients who suffer from tooth loss due to chronic conditions such as tooth decay or periodontal disease. Dental implants can act as both tooth replacements and secure anchors for replacement dental appliances such as complete dentures. Since dental implants are custom fitted for every patient and every situation, you can go about your daily activities without the fear or anxiety of a poor bite or unattractive smile.
Advanced Bone Grafting: When patients suffer from missing teeth, the jawbone will atrophy or lose mass with time, leading to a lack of bone quality or volume. Such patients were not traditionally ideal candidates for dental implants, but we can now regenerate bone through the use of advanced bone grafting techniques. Whether performing guided regeneration with your own native bone or biologic engineering with tissue from a bone bank, we can encourage bone regrowth to set the stage for successful implant or facial reconstruction.
Wisdom Teeth Surgery: The third molars or wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the back of the mouth, typically during the late teens. If these teeth are malpositioned or "impacted" due to a lack of space, they should be removed. Impacted teeth that are not treated can lead to inflammation, cavities, or even serious infections. At Capitol Oral & Facial Surgery Center, we are the experts at removing wisdom teeth with minimal pain, discomfort, and complications.
Impacted Teeth or Canines: Improperly erupted teeth can cause many dental issues. While commonly associated with wisdom teeth, other teeth can also be impacted or misaligned within the jaws and bone. Regular dental visits are helpful to reveal these signs early for timely and successful management of this problem. Potential options can range from movement of the teeth with orthodontic braces to surgical removal of residual baby teeth or other obstructions to clear a path for the teeth to erupt.
Anesthesia: One of the most common experiences for patients who are about to undergo any kind of surgery is anxiety. We all wonder what will happen during the operation, what kind of pain or discomfort may arise, and how we will manage that pain or discomfort afterwards. The good news is that advances in training and technology now provide many different options to maximize your comfort and well-being. The method that is chosen will depend on the type of procedure as well as the health history and preferences of the patient. The team at Capitol Oral & Facial Surgery Center can discuss the most appropriate type of anesthesia to make your procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
