Oral surgery is a branch of dentistry that involves the surgical treatment of conditions and disorders affecting the teeth, mouth, and jaw. Oral surgeons are dental professionals who have completed advanced training in surgical procedures and are qualified to perform a wide range of procedures, including tooth extractions, jaw surgery, and the placement of dental implants.
One of the most common types of oral surgery is the extraction of teeth, which may be necessary due to decay, infection, or crowding. Extractions can be performed using local anesthesia or sedation to ensure the comfort of the patient. In some cases, the extraction site may require bone grafting and be sutured closed to facilitate proper healing.
Jaw surgery is another type of oral surgery that may be necessary to correct problems with the alignment or function of the jaw. This may be done to treat issues such as TMJ disorder, and sleep apnea, or to correct a misaligned bite. Jaw surgery can be a complex and involved procedure, and patients will typically need to undergo a period of recovery following the surgery.
Dental implants are another common type of oral surgery. These are small titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, a bridge, or a full set of dentures. The placement of dental implants typically requires a surgical procedure, and the recovery process can vary depending on the number of implants being placed and the overall health of the patient.
