What Is Oral Surgery?

 Oral surgery covers a wide range of dental procedures and dental care. In fact, oral surgery covers any dental procedure, accompanying treatment, and diagnosis of anything that relates to the functions of the face, jaws, teeth, and/or mouth. Some oral surgical procedures include:

  • Tooth Extractions
  • Endodontic Diseases
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders)
  • Dental Implants
  • Loss of Teeth
  • Wisdom Teeth Extractions
  • Unequal or Uneven Jaw Growth (Malocclusion)
  • Injury to Teeth
  • Jaw Injuries
  • Injuries to the Mouth
  • Cleft Palate and/or Cleft Lip Repairs
  • Secondary Treatments, Known As Adjunctive Procedures
  • Bone Grafting
  • Cysts or Tumors
  • Restorations of Teeth
  • Repairs to Teeth

Common Oral Surgery Procedures

For many patients, once they realize how commonplace these procedures are, they begin to feel reassured about their own oral surgery appointment. Here are just a few of the most common oral surgeries.

  • TMJ- An oral surgical procedure helps treat TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorders. When the temporomandibular joint isn’t in sync with the rest of the jaw, it will make talking, chewing, and swallowing painful and difficult. While most dentists can diagnose the disorder, the caring staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care can treat your TMJ with gentle and thorough care.
  • Tooth Extractions– By far one of the most routine oral surgery procedures, tooth extractions are most often associated with wisdom tooth removal. However, there are many instances where a tooth may need to be removed. Sometimes teeth can become impacted or stuck in the gums and will need to be removed. Other times teeth might become decayed or damaged and must be removed to save other teeth from further damage. All of these instances require tooth extraction which is a simple procedure done by your trusted dentist in Travelers Rest, SC.
  • Tooth Restoration or Replacement- Since a missing or damaged tooth can cause serious dental and physical health issues, it will need to be replaced or restored. Bridges and dental implants will help restore the natural look, feel, and structure of your teeth.
