At Tyler Dental Care, our mission is to help you live a healthier life. Our professional and experienced oral surgeons can diagnose and treat various dental problems that require oral surgery.
Oral surgery, sometimes referred to as oral and maxillofacial surgery, falls under the specialty areas of dentistry. It deals with treatment of oral diseases and functional aspects of maxillofacial areas. Your dental surgeon will use surgical and adjunctive treatments to give you a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing jaw, teeth, and mouth.
When do you need oral surgery?
You may need an oral surgery when you have impacted teeth that can result in pain, swelling, and permanent damage to the nearby teeth and gums. Similarly, your dentist will need to perform an oral surgery when you need dental implants.
Oral surgery can be required to complete various jaw-correction procedures such as unequal jaw growth and temporomandibular join (TMJ). You will also need to undergo oral surgery when you need to wear dentures. Your dentist will correct any irregularities of the jaw so that dentures fit perfectly.
In addition to these common cases, your dentist may advise an oral surgery in other conditions.
- Facial injury that results in fractured jaw or facial bones
- Your doctor needs to remove lesion
- You may require oral surgery for cleft lip and cleft palate repair
- To remove infected area in the mouth cavity
- Sometimes, oral surgery is the best option to treat sleep apnea and snoring problems
What to expect from your oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS)?
Oral surgery is one of the nine specialty fields of dentistry. Oral surgeons (OMS) graduate from a dental school and then complete an additional four year of training and residency program.
During the four years of training as an oral surgeon, dentists train in various advanced areas such as anesthesia, plastic surgery, general surgery, pathology, and medicine.
At Tyler Dental Care, dental surgeons have years of experience and they have built a successful practice after becoming certified as diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery. They are highly qualified professionals who have the knowledge and experience.
