We are happy to say you that our oral surgeries in Fremont, CA have effectively cured dental problems in many of our patients who are based in and around the city.

Oral surgery – When is it recommended?

There are a number of instances when oral surgery may be recommended. The surgical process may have to be performed to remove a tooth or some unwanted tissues from the oral cavity or to place a dental implants or when esthetic changes have to be made by surgically correcting lips, gums or teeth. Dentists who have vast experience and knowledge in the field of oral surgery can perform complex procedures.

Oral Surgery Procedures

Oral surgery procedures may be performed to relieve pain, treat an infection or trauma, restore function or improve a person's appearance. Procedures and conditions treated include:

  • Tooth Extractions: There are a variety of reasons why you may need a tooth or teeth removed. You may have a wisdom tooth that is impacted; a diseased tooth that can't be saved; or overcrowded teeth that need to be removed so more room can be created to facilitate proper alignment during orthodontics.
  • Dental implant: Today's preferred method of tooth replacement is a titanium dental implant, which is placed beneath the gum line and into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. The implant is then attached to a realistic-looking dental crown that is visible above the gum line and indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
  • Oral Diagnosis & Biopsies: When a suspicious oral lesion is found, a biopsy is often used to detect or rule out oral cancer — a disease that is treatable if caught early. A biopsy involves removing a very small tissue sample for laboratory analysis.
  • Corrective Jaw Surgery: Sometimes a person's jaws don't fit together properly. This can affect both jaw function and appearance.
  • Snoring & Sleep Apnea: Excess tissue in the back of the throat may need to be removed in certain individuals with sleep apnea.
  • Facial Trauma & Reconstructive Surgery: Facial injuries can affect not only a person's ability to carry on basic life functions such as eating but also his or her appearance. Knocked-out teeth can sometimes be re-implanted or replaced with dental implants.
  • Cleft Lip/Palate: These birth defects are among the most common, estimated to affect around one in 700-800 babies born in North America. With proper surgical treatment, the child has an excellent chance of leading a healthy, normal life.

Oral surgery – What are the prerequisites and how it is performed?

The dentist generally strives to ensure that the treatment is painless. Local anesthesia and sedation dentistry play a key role in oral surgeries. The dentist firstly examines the condition of the patient and makes a note of his/her medical history before administering sedation and anesthesia. During the surgical process, the blood pressure level, pulse rate and other crucial medical factors of the patient are monitored to ensure safe treatment.

The dentist sets a treatment plan based on the requirement of the patient. For example, the surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth may either be a conventional removal process where the tooth is pulled out, or a complex one where the tooth is cut into pieces before it is carefully removed from the oral cavity.

The dentist explains to patients how the surgical process takes place and provides the necessary guidance on after-treatment care to ensure quick healing. Patients should strictly adhere to the after-treatment care tips.
