Oral Surgey in brambleton

what is oral surgery? 

Oral surgery is a more invasive dental treatment that requires making incisions or using surgical tools to perform extractions, bone grafts, or place dental implants. In all of these cases, an incision needs to be made into the gums to gain access to the underlying area that needs to be treated. 

Common reasons for oral surgery include having impacted, decayed, or damaged teeth, gum disease, or treating tooth loss. Contact us at Bobbio Family Dental today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bobbio.

Basic Extractions

Sometimes teeth need to be removed due to tooth decay, gum disease, dental trauma, overcrowding, or to make room for orthodontic treatment. A basic extraction is the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. 

Teeth that aren’t impacted can be removed more simply by loosening the tooth with a dental elevator and removing it with forceps. This is done under a local anesthetic so the process is completely painless and no sutures are typically needed. Recovery takes about 3 to 4 weeks.

Bone grafts

If you have suffered from gum disease or extensive tooth loss, you probably have bone loss. Bone resorption occurs when the underlying jawbone is destroyed from untreated gum disease or a lack of stimulation due to missing tooth roots. 

Bone loss can also occur due to oral injury or chronic teeth grinding. You may want to replace this missing jawbone to restore support to your facial features or to create enough support for dental implants. This can be done by surgically transferring existing or synthetic bone to the jaw to replace and regenerate missing bone.
