Surgical procedures performed by an experienced doctor
Oral surgery is an umbrella term used to describe any surgical operation that affects your face, mouth, or jaw. Not all dentists can perform oral surgery; general dentists like Dr. Akroush complete additional training and education in order to safely and effectively remove wisdom teeth, prepare your teeth for prosthetic placement and place bone grafts and dental implants.
Types of Oral Surgery at Artistic Dentistry
There are several different types of oral surgery. At Artistic Dentistry Dr Akroush regularly performs:
Removal of a tooth due to decay, injury or part of orthodontic treatment.
A long term solution to replace missing teeth. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Preparing the site for a dental implant or prosthesis.
A procedure that prepares a tooth for permanent crown placement.
Removing diseased or excess gum tissue and the bacteria that can cause periodontitis.
