About Oral Surgery

So, how do you know if you need oral surgery? One of the main reasons to have oral surgery is to remove teeth, which could be necessary if...

  • You have severe tooth paint that can’t be relieved with a root canal or dental restoration
  • You have lost too much bone support around your teeth due to periodontal disease
  • You are undergoing orthodontic treatment and don’t have room for all of your teeth

Third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, are the most common teeth to be removed due to how most people don’t have room for them. Wisdom teeth often put painful pressure on your teeth because fail to erupt and stay embedded in bone, a condition known as impaction.

Your periodontist is a specialist in another type of oral surgery: periodontitis treatment. If you have periodontitis, you may need gum surgery to reduce periodontal pockets around the teeth. This procedure helps to make your mouth more easily cleanable, so you can better maintain greater oral health.

In the event of serious periodontal disease, your periodontist may also have to remove a few of your teeth due to bone loss. After this procedure, however, your periodontist can also place dental implants to remake and rebuild your smile to a form that is even stronger and more attractive than it was before!
