What Does an Oral Surgeon in Dallas Do?

Dr. Chilcoat @ 3:02 pm

Texas Wisdom Teeth is your trusted oral surgeon in Dallas.Have you recently been referred to an oral surgeon in Dallas? You might be a bit surprised because it is often believed they only perform very complex procedures. While it is true an oral surgeon performs invasive procedures, they also perform many other treatments as well, such as wisdom tooth extractions. At Texas Wisdom Teeth, we do more than just extract the third molars. We perform an array of oral surgeries to improve your oral health and quality of life.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

The removal of the wisdom teeth is one of the leading reasons patients are referred to our office. When the wisdom teeth are trapped within gum or bone tissue, they are impacted. As a result, a surgical extraction of the teeth is needed.

Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are not the only teeth that may need surgically removed. We provide tooth extractions for several reasons, such as if the canines are impacted. In addition, if you need to have damaged teeth removed prior to getting a dental prosthetic, like dentures or dental implants, we provide the necessary extractions.

Facial Reconstruction

If you have suffered from facial trauma, you may need reconstructive surgery to repair the damage. This can involve bringing the upper and lower teeth back together properly, repairing facial fractures, or fixing complications due to oral cancers.

Bone Grafting

Tooth loss causes a decrease in bone density. To treat missing teeth, many choose dental implants. However, if the tooth loss has caused too much bone to be lost, bone grafting is needed prior to inserting the implant posts into the jawbone. We perform the necessary grafting procedures to ensure the successful placement of dental implants.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a procedure that involves adding bone to the upper jaw near the molars and premolars. This is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or when the sinuses are too close to the jaw. We may need to perform this procedure to help people who have missing teeth, bone loss from gum disease, or maxillary sinus issues.

Biopsy

If your dentist has recently discovered a concerning area during an oral cancer screening, we perform the biopsies necessary to test the tissue. We will remove a small sample, which will be sent to the lab. We will work closely with your dentist or physician to ensure a successful treatment.
