Why Would I Need an Oral Surgeon?
You might need an oral surgeon if you need a root canal or other complex dental procedure that requires surgery. Often referred to as jaw surgery, the field of oral surgery encompasses maxillofacial surgery, which is surgery on the jaw and face, and orthognathic surgery, which is typically performed to correct structural irregularities or misalignments in the jaw. If you need oral and maxillofacial surgery, our Deptford office can help you. If your dentist has recommended any type of oral surgical procedure, call our office today to schedule an appointment. Our oral surgeons are among the best in the Deptford area, and would be delighted to speak with you.
What Types of Procedures Are Considered Oral Surgery?
Oral surgical procedures can encompass many treatment processes, both inside and outside of the jaw. Although we can perform many other types of dental surgery in our Deptford office, the following are the most common types of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures that we perform:
When a tooth can’t be salvaged due to the level of decay or damage present, your dentist may recommend that you have a tooth extraction. Other reasons for an extraction include improper tooth alignment, insufficient space for incoming teeth or the need for orthodontic treatment where there’s not enough room. The cost for an extraction varies dramatically depending on the location of the tooth, its condition, and the amount of work that’s needed. However, you’ll be provided with a cost estimate during your initial consultation in our Deptford office, so you’ll know exactly what to expect. If you have questions, call us and we’ll be glad to answer them.
Oral cancer diagnosis
If you want an oral cancer diagnosis for maintenance reasons or because you think you may have oral cancer, we can help you. Even though it’s an unpleasant thought, don’t delay in seeking treatment because when it comes to cancer, speed is of the essence. Many factors can contribute to the onset of oral cancer including smoking, vaping, the presence of HPV, and other factors. If you notice symptoms such as lumps or thickened tissues in your mouth and jaw, or if you find it difficult to chew or swallow or move your jaw or if you have pain or localized edema, then call our office to schedule a consultation. The earlier oral cancer is detected, the better the likelihood of a successful treatment. Your oral surgeon will discuss your treatment options with you during your appointment in our Deptford office.
Maxillofacial and oral pathology encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of issues involving the facial muscles, jaws, mouth, salivary glands and related areas. Since the mouth has such a variety of functions, it can develop a variety of conditions, some dental and some medical. The board-certified oral surgeons in our Deptford office specialize in complex issues that involve multiple and unusual conditions. We use the most up to date methods and medications in order to provide you with the best outcome, so call our office today if you’re searching for, “dental surgery near me.”
IV Sedation is often referred to as sleep dentistry but you aren’t usually under general anesthesia during the procedure. Your IV sedation will relax you but you’ll still be awake if you’re not receiving general anesthesia. If you have additional questions about IV sedation in our office, call us at (856) 322-0536 and we’ll be glad to answer them.
A sinus lift can enable dental implants when there’s not enough height in the upper jaw. This condition is often the result of missing teeth in the patient’s upper jaw, especially in the back. A sinus lift adds bone between the sinuses and the jaw. Most often, this procedure is performed by a medical professional who specializes in periodontics or maxillofacial surgical procedures.
This procedure uses the patient’s own blood to increase the speed with which injured tissues heal. In dentistry, it reduces bleeding and facilitates restoration of tissues. If you have more questions about this innovative technology, call our office and we’ll be happy to answer them for you.
