Oral Surgery in Sarasota, FL
Oral Surgery At Your Convenience
No-one likes the thought of oral surgery and if you have to visit another dental office for treatment, then it can make the whole experience even more daunting, not to mention inconvenient. Here at Simply Smiles we’re able to provide a wide variety of oral surgery procedures which may be necessary in a patient’s dental treatment, right here in our office. If a patient requires oral surgery then they can choose an appointment time to suit them and benefit from familiar surroundings. Not only does this ensure continuity of treatment from beginning to end, but it also makes for an enhanced patient experience.
One common surgery you may have to face at some time is tooth extraction. This can be necessary for a number of reasons including:
- Teeth that have been damaged by decay, trauma, or root fracture
- Wisdom teeth that have partially erupted or impacted
- Primary teeth which have failed to fall out and are preventing the eruption of permanent teeth
- Certain teeth which need to be removed to achieve optimum results in orthodontic plans
Other types of surgery that we carry out include:
- Corrective Jaw Surgery
Jaw surgery which is also known as orthognathic surgery may be needed for a number of reasons including:
- Minor or major trauma
- Excessive wear caused by the grinding of teeth
- Misaligned jaw which has caused the appearance of the face to look out of proportion
- An incorrect bite or malocclusion
- Difficult in opening and closing the mouth and in chewing
The majority of these surgeries can be carried out under a local anaesthetic or with the aid of conscious sedation. This latter method is particularly helpful if the patient is nervous or anxious about undergoing surgery and is offered on the proviso that there are no medical conditions which prevail.
Dental implants are widely accepted as the best means of replacing missing teeth although they do require surgery. An oral surgeon will place the titanium implants into the jawbone which eventually fuses with the surround bone and soft tissue to offer stability to a crown, bridge, or set of dentures.
