Oral surgery is widespread and can efficiently address various dental problems. Tooth loss, dental pulp infections, wisdom tooth extraction, are standard oral surgeries. At Down To Earth Dental, we are well-equipped to diagnose and treat a wide range of oral health issues. We will work with our patients to decide the best possible treatment for a specific dental condition.
Common Oral Surgeries
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a routine oral surgery. The procedure helps patients get relief from pain and saves their teeth from unnecessary extractions. The tooth has a softcore underneath a dental pulp consisting of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. When a tooth gets diseased due to a bacterial infection, its pulp gets damaged. The surgery eliminates the infected pulp and alleviates pain and swelling.
If you experience complications after a root canal procedure, we can ease this painful condition by extracting the infected tissue.
A dental implant serves as a prosthetic root for a missing tooth. They can substitute teeth lost due to decay, gum disease, or mishaps. A dental implant involves a minor dental surgery for the placement of the implant post that grafts with the jawbone in due course. The implants are capped with dental crowns.
Bone grafting surgery is performed to augment the lost jawbone tissues. This surgery is conducted to support a device such as a dental implant. It involves placing donor tissues in the deficit area.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)
TMJ disorders cause pain or discomfort in the joint that connects your jawbone to the skull. In extreme cases, we perform TMJ surgery to address these conditions and provide you relief from pain or injury.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom tooth surgery involves the removal of the molar teeth located deep inside your mouth. When wisdom teeth do not have enough room to emerge, they can become impacted and cause pain, oral infections, or other dental issues. Wisdom tooth extraction involves removing them through surgical incisions and suturing the extraction site.
It can be pretty scary and stressful when mishaps occur and damage the face due to falls, sports injuries, or facial trauma. Dental surgery for facial reconstruction can be broken down into two categories: fractures and soft tissue injuries. In some instances, reconstructive surgery utilizes dental implants and other treatments to correct the bone structure and jaw alignments.
