Having a healthy mouth and teeth bring good benefits to your life. They enable you to eat heartily, feel good about yourself, and interact more confidently with others. But accidents and misfortunes do happen that make your mouth and teeth need medical attention. And when regular dental treatments are not enough, oral surgery may be the best solution.
Oral surgery is a specialized field of dentistry that treats issues in a person’s teeth, gums, and jaw that cannot be treated with non-invasive means. At Edgewater Dental, we have highly specialized oral surgeons and modern dental equipment that enable us to perform effective oral surgical procedures.
Oral Surgical Procedures
Here are some of the surgical procedures that we can provide:
Root canal therapy extracts the infected pulp from the tooth’s inner chamber to prevent the infection from spreading. This treatment also saves the damaged tooth from being extracted.
- Extraction of Impacted Teeth
Impacted teeth, teeth that do not come out of the gums completely, need to be extracted before they cause severe pain or damage to the gums, jaw, or adjacent teeth. Because of the unusual way they are positioned, they have to be surgically removed, cutting into the gums and sometimes the bone to reach the tooth.
This surgical procedure treats exposed tooth roots caused by gum recession. The periodontist takes gum tissue from other parts of the mouth or a donor and grafts it to the treatment site, covering the exposed tooth root.
- Periodontal Pocket Procedures
These procedures remove harmful bacteria from the “pockets” between the gums and the teeth and close up those pockets, preventing bacteria from accumulating inside.
- Oral Cancer Detection and Treatment
When cancerous lesions and growths are found in your mouth, they have to be treated as early as possible. And this treatment requires surgical processes.
Our oral surgeon, Dr. Ali Sajadi, DDS, MSD, is not only a board-certified surgeon but also teaches oral surgery techniques at the School of Dentistry of the University of Texas. He continues to improve his expertise in all surgical and implant procedures, enabling him to perform even the most complex of surgeries.
