Need oral surgery? Oral surgery is the branch of dentistry concerned with the surgical treatment of injuries, diseases, and deformities of the oral and maxillofacial region. A number of conditions may require oral surgery. Dr. Arkady Naiman at Advanced Dental Care in Plainville, MA, offers oral surgery services to their patients.
Types of Oral Surgery include:
1. Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with small anchors and replaces missing teeth with false teeth that feel and function much like real ones. Implants can improve your smile, prevent jawbone loss, improve your ability to chew food, and prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of place. Dental implant surgery is usually an outpatient surgery, and you will be given anesthesia for the surgery.
2. Dental Extractions
A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. There are a number of reasons why dental extractions may be needed. A dental extraction may be necessary if your tooth is so damaged that it cannot be repaired. In addition, if your wisdom teeth don't have room to grow, you'll likely need to have them extracted. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in pain, swelling, and a gum infection.
3. Root Canal Therapy
In the past, diseased or injured teeth often had to be pulled. Today, they can be saved through root canal therapy. A root canal is a procedure that is used to fix teeth that are infected or badly decayed. Extraction is not a good alternative to root canal treatment. Saving your natural tooth is the best option. Root canal treatment has a high success rate. With proper care, root-canal-treated teeth can last a lifetime.
