Oral Surgery

You might be surprised to learn what procedures are actually considered oral surgery in dentistry. In fact, many procedures performed regularly at Dental Dimensions fall under this category. Oral surgery corrects problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw.

Tooth extraction is the most recognized form of oral surgery. Reasons for tooth extraction include impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth, teeth beyond repair either from tooth decay, root fracture or trauma, and primary teeth that have failed to fall out, preventing the eruption of permanent teeth.

Preparing the mouth for dentures, repairing jaw problems and performing root canals are other common types of oral surgery. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or provide stability to a new or existing denture.
