Oral surgery includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck. The oral surgeon can use intravenous sedation, and or local anesthesia in an outpatient setting for removal of teeth and other procedures. At Dunsmuir Dental Group we will assess your need for oral surgery based on the results of a comprehensive examination.
Oral Surgery may be required for these reasons:
- In the treatment of benign tumors and cysts
- Removal of impacted teeth such as wisdom tooth extraction
- To manage diseases of the teeth and their supporting soft and hard tissues
- Pre prosthetic (restorative) surgery for dental implants, dentures or other dental prostheses
