Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is a specialized branch of dentistry encompassing a wide range of surgical procedures performed in the oral and maxillofacial area, including the mouth, jaw, and face. These procedures include extracting impacted or damaged teeth, removing cysts or tumors, correcting jaw misalignments, dental implant placements, and treating oral diseases and injuries.

Our dentist at Waterman Boulevard Family Dentistry is highly trained in performing a range of oral surgery procedures. These procedures are essential for addressing complex dental issues, improving oral function, relieving pain, and enhancing overall oral health and aesthetics.

Types of Oral Surgery Procedures

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. These implants are placed in the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. The implant fuses with the bone over time, providing a stable foundation for a replacement crown to be placed on top.

Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction is a procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the bone. There are various reasons why our dentist in Fairfield, CA, may recommend an extraction, including severe tooth decay or infection.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure performed to repair and rebuild the bone tissue around the teeth and jaw damaged by trauma or disease. This procedure is also sometimes used in preparation for dental implant placement.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars and erupt in early adulthood. Most people do not have enough room in their mouths to allow the wisdom teeth to grow properly. This can lead to complications such as pain, crowding, impaction, and other oral health issues. In such cases, our dentist in Fairfield, CA, may recommend extraction. 

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a procedure that is used to cover tooth roots that become exposed due to receding gums. The gum tissue is taken from another area of the mouth and grafted over the exposed root. This protects the tooth from further damage and improves the appearance of your smile.

The Benefits of Oral Surgery

One of the primary advantages of oral surgery is that it can address complex problems that cannot be managed through routine dental procedures. Tooth extractions remove damaged or impacted teeth, preventing further complications, while dental implants offer a long-lasting solution to restore missing teeth.

Jaw surgery in Fairfield, CA, can correct misalignments, improving oral function and facial aesthetics. In addition, oral surgery procedures are used to address issues like oral diseases, cysts, and tumors. Moreover, oral surgery procedures are used to repair facial trauma, alleviate temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, correct congenital deformities, and even address sleep-related breathing disorders like sleep apnea.

Whether for medical necessity or cosmetic enhancement, oral surgery plays a vital role in improving overall oral health, function, and appearance, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for those who seek these procedures.
