If you suffer from certain conditions, you may end up needing oral surgery at Burton Dentistry. Our professionals are here to make sure that you’re as comfortable as possible during these procedures. There are numerous surgeries that may be recommended.
Your wisdom teeth act as your third set of molars. In some cases, your wisdom teeth may erupt completely and cause you no problems. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. They might never fully erupt through your gumline, or even come in at an angle that’s going to cause problems. Having impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems for the rest of your teeth and can also cause you a tremendous amount of pain. Burton Dentistry can help remove these problem molars to help relieve your symptoms.
Burton Dentistry will always attempt to save your natural teeth. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible, and you may need to look into getting a replacement tooth. This procedure begins with having oral surgery to put in a titanium post in your jaw. Over time, this post will begin fusing with your gum tissue and your bone. Once it’s healed, this post will provide strong support for your replacement tooth.
If you’ve noticed an abscess in your mouth, you should have your dentist check it out. Sometimes this will involve a biopsy to check for oral cancer. The biopsy involves having a small piece of tissue taken out and then sent to a lab for further testing.
If your jaw isn’t properly aligned, you might notice that the function of your jaw isn’t what it should be, or that your facial appearance isn’t quite what you’d like to see. If this is the case, surgery can be done to resolve this problem.
There are more conservative ways to handle the symptoms of sleep apnea, but sometimes they don’t work. If you have already tried the usual methods, surgery may be recommended at Burton Dentistry. They will remove a portion of excess tissue that’s grown in the back of your throat. This can drastically reduce your symptoms.
Suffering from a knocked-out tooth or a facial injury is never fun. Eating and speaking can become problematic. If this is the case, reconstructive surgery is an option that you may want to consider. You can get replacements for your damaged teeth as well as improving your jawbone and joint issues. It can also help with your gumline as well.
