The American Dental Association (ADA) has asked dentists to defer all elective treatment at this time, and only provide emergency services. This is to help preserve protective equipment (masks, gowns, gloves, etc.) for hospitals and urgent care centers as well as limit the spread of the virus. We are keeping a limited number of locations open to provide emergency dental services, to both help you and reduce the traffic to Emergency Rooms (ERs) and urgent care centers so that they can focus on non-dental emergencies. If you are in pain and need emergency dental treatment, please call (702) 744-8009 and we can assist you right away.

The particular internationally recognized discipline in dentistry called oral surgery concerns diseases, injuries and defects around the head, neck, face and jaw.

What Is Oral Surgery?

Many problems addressed by general dentists fall into the category of oral surgery, such as tooth extractions, dental implants, impacted wisdom teeth, and the detection and treatment of some diseases.

Some issues, like corrective jaw surgery and some dental implants, are performed by specialists in oral surgery.  At Absolute Dental, we staff dedicated oral and maxillofacial dentists who specialize in the treatment of oral and maxillofacial conditions.

What Procedures Do Oral Surgeons Perform?

Repair Injury of the Jaw

Fractured jaws and broken facial bones often fall to the oral surgeon for repair.  A fractured jaw can cause other problems, such as gum issues or tissue damage.  A skilled oral surgeon will be able to repair all related issues.

Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery

Approximately 1 in 700 children are born with cleft lip and palates.  This well-known condition is treatable by surgery, usually beginning around three months after birth, after the baby has had time to develop.  Treatment can end there or be lifelong, depending on severity.

Tooth Extractions

Pulling teeth is often a simple affair, involving nothing more than anesthetic and a sharp tug.  But in the case of impacted wisdom teeth or other complications, more specialized treatment is needed.  A skilled oral surgeon is able to evaluate and perform complicated procedures to remove problem teeth.

Snoring

If snoring is caused by a long, loose palate and uvula, an oral surgeon can choose from several procedures to fix the noise.  In some cases, the tissue will be removed, while in others, the tissue will be stiffened.
