Common Oral Surgical Procedures

Posted on 6/7/2021 by Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
You might not like the idea of undergoing dental surgery. However, at times, it is the best option to treat certain dental problems effectively. At Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Jay P. Malmquist and Dr. Michael P. Malmquist can perform a detailed oral exam to help you determine if you require oral surgery. Some of the common oral surgical procedures we perform are: Dental Extractions As qualified dental surgeons, we know the value of natural teeth and will not pull them out if there is any way to save them. However, in many patients presenting with a complaint of toothache, gum infection or tooth decay is often the cause of pain. In such circumstances, it is wise to remove the affected tooth before it affects adjacent teeth. Dental Implants Dental implants are usually necessary if you have broken or missing teeth. It is crucial to replace a lost tooth as failing to do so can lead to bigger dental problems like gum recession or jaw bone loss. Other ways to replace a missing or damaged tooth include removable dentures, dental crowns, and bridges. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for dentures, crowns, and bridges. Moreover, dental implants last longer and mimic natural teeth better in terms of appearance and functionality. Corrective Jaw Surgery Different patients require corrective jaw surgery for different reasons. Usually, it is to help address functional problems like trouble chewing or swallowing. People with misaligned teeth may need jaw surgery to control chronic pain and swelling that may result from abnormal pressure the teeth apply on the jaw bone and muscles. Moreover, some people with sleep apnea who have difficulty breathing might have to get corrective jaw surgery to help open up their nasal airway. If you are looking for skilled and reliable oral surgeons for your dental conditions, Dr. Jay P. Malmquist and Dr. Michael P. Malmquist at Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery can help. We use advanced tools and the latest dental technology to minimize discomfort during the procedure and ensure faster healing after your surgery.
