Surgery performed on the teeth, gums, jawbone, lips, or the soft tissues of the mouth is called oral surgery. In many cases, we use conservative treatment but, in some cases, oral surgery may be the right option to improve your oral and overall health. Our dentists in Hallmark Dental Group have performed numerous successful oral surgeries.
When would oral surgery be necessary?
Oral trauma: Oral trauma is one of the most common conditions that require oral surgery. When the patient has a bad fall, a sports-related injury, or sustains a hard blow to the mouth accidentally, they may injure their teeth, jaws, or the soft tissues of the mouth. Fracture of the jawbone can be quite painful, which is why we give a lot of importance to such situations. During oral emergencies, call us as soon as possible, and we would offer assistance immediately.
Tooth Extraction: Tooth extractions means the removal of a tooth from its socket. You will have to get your tooth extracted due to painful conditions like severely infected tooth because of cavity or oral trauma.
Impacted wisdom tooth removal: The wisdom teeth are the last ones to emerge and are placed at the back of the jaw. Sometimes, there could be a complication during the emergence of the tooth, making it get ‘stuck’ in between the jawbone and the gums. This condition is called ‘impacted wisdom teeth’ and can be quite painful. Such teeth are best if removed by means of surgery.
