What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed in or around your mouth and jaw by a specialist who is trained in the surgeries required for each area. These can include things like tooth extraction, bone grafting, dental implants and more. Our Dr. Joseph F. DeSantis has more than 30 years of experience and specializes in full-mouth reconstruction thanks to an extensive background.
Oral surgery goes well past the capabilities of a general dentist as it addresses more serious complications, which require serious solutions. Our oral surgery dental care is focused on precise and comfortable procedures performed only by highly-qualified and trained dentists.
Tooth extraction procedures are used to remove a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. Extraction is generally conducted for teeth that have been damaged and decayed beyond repair, wisdom teeth that are impacted and could affect the health of other nearby teeth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. We ensure that your extraction is a pain-free and comfortable process for you.
Anesthesia and sedation are used to ensure maximum patient comfort. We will also give you detailed instructions on how you can care for the extraction site to aid proper healing. Once the area has healed, we can advise you on the best method for replacing your extracted tooth.
Bone grafting is often performed prior to installation of dental restorations such as dental bridges and dental implants. In most cases, the success of implant surgery depends upon the health of the jawbone at the surgical site. If the jawbone has receded or is damaged, then it won’t be able to support dental implants. Bone grafting is done in such cases to add volume and strength to the jaw bone. The procedure involves making an incision in the jaw bone and placing grafts that may have either been artificially sourced or may have been taken from the patient’s body itself.
