When is Oral Surgery Necessary?
Your DenTull provider may recommend oral surgery if you have a dental condition that doesn’t improve with more conservative treatments, like oral antibiotics or enhanced brushing and flossing.
The DenTull team uses oral surgery to treat various issues, including:
- Badly broken teeth
- Gum disease
- Severe tooth decay
- Bone loss in the jaw
- Missing teeth
- Gum recession
Surgery can remove cancerous or noncancerous growths, including bumps and lumps.
What Are the Types of Oral Surgery?
The DenTull team offers several types of oral surgery, including:
Dental Implant Surgery
The DenTull team uses Nobel BioCare™ implants, the leading brand of dental implants available.
During surgery, the dental implants are placed into your empty tooth sockets and fuse with your jawbone. Dental implants provide a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-anchored dentures.
If you have a severely decaying or impacted tooth, your DenTull provider might recommend an extraction procedure.
During an extraction, your dentist uses forceps to carefully loosen and remove your tooth. Afterward, they fill your empty tooth socket with gauze and provide care instructions.
Dental Bone Graft
If you want dental implants but don’t have enough jawbone to support them, the team recommends a bone graft.
During bone graft surgery, your dentist places a piece of synthetic or natural bone material into an incision in your jaw. After placement, the material (called a graft) encourages the production of new and healthy bone tissue.
Your dentist might recommend periodontal surgery if you have gum disease or severe gum recession.
During this procedure, your dentist carefully cleans plaque and harmful bacteria beneath your gum tissue. Then, they clean your tooth roots and reposition your gums so they reattach to your teeth.
Prior to oral surgery, your provider administers painless injections, ensuring treatment is comfortable and low risk.
What is Recovery Like After Oral Surgery?
After oral surgery, your DenTull provider gives you detailed post-operative instructions. They explain how to reduce swelling, prevent infection, and speed up your body’s healing process. Follow your dentist’s guidelines closely to reduce your risk of complications.
