Having oral surgery by one of our qualified and experienced dentists at Smile Creator of Naples is the best way to get high-quality dental care.
Here are some of the most common types of oral surgery our dental professionals perform.
Whether it’s from wear-and-tear, decay, wisdom teeth growing in, or even an infection, teeth may need to be removed. If you require oral surgery for tooth extraction, you’ll likely be given a numbing agent to ensure a painless experience. Your oral surgeon will extract the tooth, clean up the socket, and possibly place a suture into the wound to help it heal.
Cleft Palate or Lip
For younger patients with a cleft palate or lip, oral surgery may be able to help. Surgeons with specialized training can fix this facial defect that can cause problems with feeding and speech development. They’ll be able to repair these defects when a baby is around a year old.
For patients that are missing one or two teeth, dental implants are a great restorative option. Dental implant surgery can be extensive, requiring several visits. It involves placing a metal post through your gum into the jaw bone. At the end of the procedure, the dental implant snaps onto the post to improve your smile and restore proper jaw alignment.
Believe it or not, dentists can help those suffering from sleeping disorders. If you have disrupted breathing while you’re sleeping, you may benefit from oral surgery at Smile Creator of Naples. The surgery involves altering the structures of the jaw, palate, or upper airway. A maxillofacial surgeon with specialized training can perform these surgeries to help people with sleep apnea breathe better and maintain their oxygenation during sleep.
