Oral Surgery Q & A

What oral surgery procedures do you offer?

The team at Brite Dental Spa has the knowledge and expertise to diagnose functional problems with your bite, wisdom teeth, and soft tissue. In many cases, the right treatment for these issues is oral surgery. Oral surgery usually takes place in-office under local anesthesia and mild sedation.

Simple procedures, such as simple tooth extractions, are part of Brite Dental Spa’s oral surgery offerings. Other procedures you can trust the oral surgery team to provide include:

  • Dental implants placement
  • Wisdom teeth removal (the third molars)
  • Bone grafting
  • Complex extractions
  • Treatment for impacted teeth

If you have complications of facial swelling or painful abscesses, oral surgical solutions may also be available. 

Who should visit an oral surgeon?

If you have impacted wisdom teeth or need a bone graft to support a dental implant, you need the expertise of an oral surgeon. People with severe gum disease may also need the help of an oral surgeon to extract infection and any damaged teeth.

Brite Dental Spa can handle complex procedures that require removing multiple teeth, advanced sedation, or bone surgery, too.

When is it necessary to surgically extract a tooth?

If you have a tooth that is coming in crooked and threatens the integrity of surrounding teeth, it may need a surgical extraction. Teeth that break off at the gumline during trauma may also need removal with oral surgery.

Signs that you need to remove a tooth include:

  • Severe gum disease
  • Infection or cysts
  • Tooth decay
  • Pain and swelling in the gums

Wisdom teeth, or the third molars, most often require surgical extraction. These teeth come in during your late teens or early 20s to help you chew but often crowd your existing teeth. They often come in crooked, erupt only partway, or remain impacted deep in your gums.

Sometimes teeth need extraction before they cause problems. Digital X-rays can reveal that a tooth below the gum's surface threatens the integrity of your smile and oral health.
