What Oral Surgery Procedures Do We Offer?
Our board-certified oral surgeons in Sparks can perform different types of surgical dental procedures, including:
If you have a problem tooth that’s causing dental issues, including wisdom teeth, our team can extract the tooth under sedation. Teeth removal can prevent overcrowding, impaction, gum issues, and infections. It may also be necessary to remove teeth before orthodontic treatment.
Impacted wisdom teeth treatment
When a wisdom tooth starts to grow but becomes stuck under the gums or in the jawbone, it can cause pain and complications. Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:
- Jaw pain
- Swelling around the jaw and gums
- Sensitive or bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Pain when opening your mouth
Because an impacted wisdom tooth can lead to infections, tooth decay, and gum disease, it’s important to get treatment right away. Our oral surgeons can remove the tooth and treat the affected soft tissue in the area to improve your dental health.
Dental implants are a common solution for missing teeth that involve a titanium implant that fuses to the jaw bone for a durable and permanent replacement. These dental implants can significantly improve a patient’s functionality and appearance while helping prevent bone loss in the jaw.
In some cases, patients experience bone loss after a tooth falls out. If the jaw bone loses density, it cannot successfully support a dental implant without a bone graft. A dental bone graft procedure is designed to improve bone density in the jaw using human tissue or synthetic material that helps the bone regenerate.
Complex Root Canals
When a root canal is particularly complicated, an oral surgeon will usually perform the procedure to avoid issues and ensure the infection is completely cleared. Your dentist will let you know if an oral surgeon is necessary for your situation.
Jaw and facial repairs
For patients with jaw issues, temporomandibular or TMJ disorders, or other problems with their bite, an oral surgeon may be able to help. Schedule a consultation with our Sparks team to see if we can alleviate the symptoms and correct the issue with a surgical procedure.
