What is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral surgery is a recognized medical specialty that diagnoses and treats disorders affecting the mouth, teeth, jaws, and face. Although oral surgery is often thought of as a single procedure, it encompasses many different treatments. In addition to extractions and dental implants, oral surgeons perform various procedures, including oral cancer surgery, treatment for TMJ disorders, and corrective jaw surgery. As a result, they can provide comprehensive care for their patient’s oral health needs.
Oral Surgery Procedures
Enhancing the function, health, and look of your smile and its supporting structures, such as your jaw, is the goal of oral surgery. We aim to offer the most conservative care possible in many situations. We can also use oral surgery to treat some diseases and enhance your oral and overall health. We provide many oral surgery treatments at our dental office in Mt Kisco, including:
Bone Grafting: When a tooth is missing, the jawbone might degenerate and alter the facial structure. Bone grafting procedures can restore missing bone in the jaw if the bone has deteriorated. More people can now be considered for dental implants as a result.
Frenectomy: A frenulum is a little flap of tissue that divides your mouth into two sections. It can cause a condition known as being “tongue-tied,” preventing you from adequately chewing, eating, and communicating. A frenectomy is a treatment where a frenulum is removed or modified to improve your smile’s function and health.
Tooth Extractions: Despite our best attempts to save the tooth, there are situations when trauma, gum disease, fractured or broken teeth, and dental decay might be too severe, and extractions may be the best course of action. Dr. Jin Sub Oh and our team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible.
Wisdom Teeth Removal: Most of the time, the mouth’s limited capacity prevents the wisdom teeth from erupting correctly and developing into their full potential. The tooth may become impacted (stuck) in an unfavorable or dangerous position. The wisdom teeth should be removed as soon as possible to avoid cysts, tumors, pain, damage to adjacent teeth, and other complications.
Periodontal Surgery: In addition to your gum tissue, your teeth and supporting bone structure will also be impacted if you have periodontal disease that has further advanced. Depending on the severity of the condition and your particular needs, we may advise one or more of the following gum surgical procedures:
- Gingival Flap Surgery (pocket reduction)
TMJ Treatments: Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD) are a group of ailments involving your intricate jaw joint and the accompanying muscles and connective tissues. No single treatment can cure TMJ and myofascial issues, and effective treatment requires time. We only suggest surgical solutions once we try all non-surgical options.
