Oral surgery includes a number of dental treatments and procedures that improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile and the surrounding structures, such as your jaw. In most cases, we will strive to provide the most conservative treatment options possible. However, oral surgery may become necessary to correct certain conditions and improve your oral health as well as your overall health.
In such cases, we take all necessary measures to ensure your experience is stress-free and pain-free and you feel comfortable at all times. Our team is committed to your well-being and we offer sedation dentistry options to help you stay calm and relaxed.
Oral Surgery Treatments and Procedures
Oral surgery may be performed for treatments or procedures like:
- Tooth extraction (when the teeth are decayed, damaged, or infected and effective restoration is not possible)
- Wisdom teeth removal (for situations where the wisdom teeth are impacted or have erupted at an incorrect angle)
- Jaw surgery (to address temporomandibular joint disorders, correct uneven jaw development issues, or improve the fit of dentures)
- Bone grafts (when there is not enough bone density to support a successful dental implant)
While Dr. Lemmon provides many oral surgery procedures at our office, we also work closely with other dental professionals, practices, and hospitals to ensure that you receive the high-quality results you deserve. To determine whether you require oral surgery, our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and assess your needs and recommend the best available treatment for you.
Our team is always committed to ensuring your dental procedure runs as smoothly and comfortably as possible. To learn more about oral surgery and schedule a consultation with our dentist in Yuma, AZ, contact us today at (928) 344-3177.
