What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is a broad term for surgical treatment of problems affecting the teeth, gums, tongue, and jaws. Oftentimes, these issues pose serious health concerns, and oral surgeons must use special instruments to address oral concerns.
There are many different types of oral surgery, including tooth removals, root canals, gum recessions, and bone loss, and your course of treatment may differ depending on your condition. Baig Dental is proud to offer the following types of oral surgery:
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extraction
- Dental implants
- Bone grafts
Root Canal Therapy
Pulp, the substance made of connective tissue, nerve endings, and blood vessels, can become inflamed, causing pain and increasing your risk of further complications.
At Baig Dental, your dentist will remove the pulp from the center of your tooth, fill it with gutta-percha, and cap it with a crown. Oftentimes, root canal therapy can save your tooth from needing to be extracted.
A tooth extraction can be necessary if you have a severe cavity or if your wisdom teeth have become impacted. During the procedure for impacted teeth, the dentist will make an incision along the gum line to expose the tooth, split it into sections, and remove the individual pieces with a pair of forceps.
For teeth that have formed cavities, your dentist will use an elevator tool to loosen the affected tooth and remove it with a pair of forceps.
Dental implants can help reinforce your jaw and provide a foundation for other dental restorations. Made of titanium, they allow more versatility for procedures like crowns and implant dentures.
If your jawbone doesn’t have enough material to support implants, a bone graft will help strengthen your jaw. During the procedure, your dentist will graft a piece of synthetic material into your jaw, encouraging the growth of new bone cells and healthy tissue.
