What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery focuses on surgical procedures involving the mouth, teeth, jaw, and facial structures. It involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various conditions, diseases, and injuries that require surgical intervention. The goal of oral surgery is to improve oral health, restore proper oral function, alleviate pain, and enhance the overall well-being of patients.
Our Oral Surgery Treatments
Tooth extractions involve the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Tooth extractions may be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, or preparation for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Contos only performs tooth extractions as a last resort option, as we always aim to preserve teeth.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants provide a durable and natural-looking solution. Our experienced implant dentists surgically implant a titanium “root” in the jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation for a tooth replacement. The titanium post integrates with the bone over time, and once fully healed, an artificial tooth is attached to the implant.
Periodontal disease can severely damage the integrity of the bone in your jaw, which may warrant a bone graft to rebuild the jawbone. Excess plaque buildup leads to gum disease, causing gum pockets to increase in volume and separate from the bone. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria, which eat away at the root and the supporting bone.
