Oral Surgery Q & A

Why do I need oral surgery?

Oral surgery is an intervention method to treat teeth with problems that less invasive therapies can’t resolve. Certain situations that affect your teeth can necessitate oral surgery, including:

  • Severe trauma
  • Disease
  • Crowding
  • Infection

Oral surgery often becomes necessary when a tooth is past saving, or when decay is so severe that crowns or a filling can’t restore your tooth.

What are some common types oral surgery?

At New Haven Dental Associates, skilled oral surgeons offer a variety of oral surgeries to address dental problems, including:

Wisdom teeth extraction

Your wisdom teeth arrive after the rest of your adult teeth, so there often isn’t room for them. This leads to crowding and other problems that can cause painful symptoms and threaten your overall oral health. After a wisdom tooth extraction, you’ll need to rest for at least a few days and avoid hard foods.

Tooth extraction

In situations where decay is passed a certain point, your dentist may not be able to save your tooth and instead opt to remove it with a simple, safe extraction procedure. There are plenty of alternatives to replace missing teeth, including implants, dentures, bridges, and veneers.

Tori removal

Mandibular tori are bony overgrowths near your premolars. Teeth grinding can increase your risk of developing tori. They can lead to repetitive trauma in the area and ultimately ulcers, or they can complicate the functioning of dentures. Oral surgery to remove tori reduces the amount of bone and protects nearby teeth.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting is the process of grafting bone-like materials, or bone extracted from another body part, onto your jawbone to better support surgically placed implants. After oral surgery to perform bone grafting, you’ll need several months of healing for new, strong bone to form on the original jawbone.

Is oral surgery safe?

Oral surgery procedures at New Haven Dental Associates are highly effective and very safe. The entire staff at New Haven Dental Associates, particularly oral surgeons, maintain strict sterilization and anti-cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
