If You Have Teeth or Jaw Problems, We Can Help!
Here at our dentist office in Aptos, we will use various forms of oral surgery techniques to remove wisdom teeth, prepare your mouth for dentures and dental implants, correct jaw problems such as TMD and TMJ, and perform root canals. Additionally, if you have had trauma to your teeth and mouth, we can mitigate the damage by using some of our advanced oral surgery procedures.
Many people think of oral surgery as having to be performed in a hospital setting and requiring a long recovery period. More correctly however, most of our procedures can actually be performed right here in our Aptos office and you can be up and moving around again within just a couple of hours. Here are some of our more common oral surgery services:
The most common and recognized type of oral surgery procedure we perform here at our dentistry practice is the extraction of wisdom teeth that are both impacted and partially erupted. We also extract teeth that have been significantly damaged due to trauma, decay or root fractures. Tooth extraction is sometimes necessary for orthodontic treatment.
Dental implants to replace missing teeth and offer improved stability to dentures, are another oral surgery procedure that we provide to our patients. After your implant, you should be able to resume regular eating and chewing fairly soon.
If you suffer from TMJ disorder, malocclusion or have an under-bite or overbite, we offer corrective surgery options to ensure that you can chew, eat and open and close your mouth naturally.
