Oral surgery is a domain of dentistry that encompasses all the dental procedures of surgical nature, ranging from simple tooth extraction to maxillofacial surgeries.
In other words, any procedure that requires to artificially alter the dentition by performing surgery for teeth, gums, or jawbones, i.e., the mandibles.
It requires advanced skills and training to be able to perform dental surgery, and hence not all dentists can perform it. At Conway House, we are fortunate enough to have dentist who can perform oral surgery.
Oral surgeries are the procedures restricted to the inside of the buccal cavity and are classified under the following categories:
The most commonly and feasibly performed dental surgery is tooth extraction.
Tooth extraction is the process of removal of a tooth from its dental socket or alveolus in the maxilla.
– Extractions are done for multiple reasons such as extreme tooth decay, dental trauma, or any disease surrounding the teeth.
– It is done to relieve the patient from the excruciating pain that occurs either due to infection to the dental pulp as in dental trauma or injury to the nerves leading to increased pain and sensitivity.
– Another major cause leading to dental extraction is an impacted wisdom tooth leading to recurrent infections of the gum called pericoronitis.
– In Orthodontic treatment, tooth extraction may be required to make sufficient space for straightening of the crooked teeth.
Dental extractions can be surgical or non-surgical. Here you will get a brief insight into how tooth extraction is performed.
