There are several dental conditions that may require surgical intervention. Thanks to modern dental technology and effective sedation, our patients at Dental Partners of Brookline report feeling minimal pain and discomfort.
If your dentist has suggested oral surgery, you can be better prepared by knowing what to expect during dental surgeries. Here’s a closer look at the different common types of oral surgeries.
Impacted wisdom teeth are much more common than we realize, and unfortunately, we don’t have any control over them. Wisdom teeth erupt much later than the second set of molars, and they are often unable to fully erupt due to misalignment of teeth or lack of space.
Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include pain, swelling, and tenderness in the jaw bone. If you allow the impacted wisdom tooth to persist in the oral cavity, it may lead to bacterial infection entering the gum tissue. Depending on the nature of the problem and location of the impacted tooth, the dentist may suggest extraction or oral surgery in Brookline, MA.
You can trust our trained team to keep you relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. Please feel free to contact Dental Partners of Brookline with any questions or concerns regarding dental surgery.
Our dentist in Brookline, MA, may recommend jaw surgery to correct misaligned jawbones or improve facial appearance. We may suggest jaw surgery if the problem cannot be treated with orthodontics alone. In many cases, the patient may need to wear braces before and after surgery for full alignment.
We are committed to our patients’ wellbeing and do everything we can to address your oral health concerns.
In case of trauma, knocked out teeth or facial injuries, reconstructive surgery may be necessary to treat your jawbone, replace missing teeth, and correct gum tissue.
