Common Oral Surgery Procedures

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. Generally a simple procedure, tooth extraction can be completed right in the dentist’s office. During this procedure, your dentist gently pulls your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. Another form of tooth extraction, wisdom tooth removal, is often more complex and can take up to a few hours to complete.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a specialized oral surgery treatment that involves replacing bone levels in the jaw. Usually due to missing teeth, bone loss is ongoing and needs to be treated to support a denture or dental implants. A bone grafting procedure involves taking bone from the patient or a donor source and placing it at the site of bone resorption. Once the sutures are in place, the area is allowed to heal for a few months to let the bone grafting material and jawbone integrate.

Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth and are made up of three parts—the post, abutment, and restoration. Dental implant posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone to anchor a new tooth or set of teeth. Modern dental implant surgery is precise, especially when CT guided technology is used. Immediate load of a temporary restoration may also be available for qualifying patients!

Frequently Asked Questions

Tooth extraction may be necessary due to various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced periodontal disease, impaction (wisdom teeth), crowded teeth, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
Dentists use local anesthesia to numb the area during a tooth extraction, ensuring that patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. Post-extraction discomfort can be managed with prescribed medications.
The dentist will assess the tooth’s condition, administer anesthesia, and carefully remove the tooth. For impacted or more complex cases, oral surgeons may be involved.
The duration of a tooth extraction varies depending on factors such as the tooth’s location, condition, and complexity. Simple extractions may take just a few minutes, while more complex cases may require more time.
After a tooth extraction, it's normal to experience some swelling, discomfort, and minor bleeding. Following post-operative care instructions, such as avoiding certain foods and activities, will aid in a smoother recovery.
It's generally recommended to avoid eating or drinking for a few hours after a tooth extraction to allow the blood clot to form. Soft and cool foods are often recommended during the initial recovery period.
Depending on the location and function of the extracted tooth, your dentist may discuss replacement options, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures, to restore function and aesthetics.
While tooth extractions are common and generally safe, complications such as infection, dry socket, or damage to adjacent teeth may occur. Following post-operative care instructions reduces the risk of complications.
It's advisable to arrange for someone to drive you home after a tooth extraction, especially if you received sedation or general anesthesia.

The cost of a tooth extraction can vary based on factors such as the complexity of the
extraction, the tooth’s location, and geographic location. It’s recommended to consult with your dentist for an accurate cost estimate based on your specific case.

Discuss your concerns and anxiety levels with your dentist during a consultation. They can help determine if sedation dentistry is a suitable option for your specific needs.
