What is oral surgery and the most common procedures?

Oral surgery is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases of the mouth, jaw and face. Common procedures include extraction of wisdom teeth, placement of dental implants, jaw reconstruction, and removal of tumors or cysts. At our Philia Dental office, oral surgeons are trained to perform both simple and complex surgical procedures. In addition to traditional surgical methods, we also use advanced techniques such as computer-guided surgery and laser therapy. The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function and appearance of the mouth, jaw and face, as well as to improve the patient’s general oral health.

What is bone augmentation?

  1. Bone grafts are used to fill in areas of tooth loss, providing a platform on which new bone and tissue can grow.
  2. Bone augmentation can be used to improve the stability of dental implants, helping to ensure that the implant is securely placed.
  3. Bone regeneration techniques can help rebuild bone in areas where it has been lost due to trauma or disease.
  4. Bone substitutes can be used to augment existing bone, helping to fill gaps or deficiencies.
  5. Bone replacement implants can be used to replace missing teeth and help restore function and aesthetics.
