Oral Surgery in Cedar Hill, TX
Oral surgery is a dental specialty that focuses on the correction of dental health problems through surgical means. These are the most common types of oral surgery that we perform at Indigo Dentistry:
- Tooth extraction
The removal of single teeth may be necessary to maintain the health of your remaining teeth and mouth. After evaluating all options and doing as much as possible to save a tooth, extraction may be your best or only option. The most common reasons for extractions are:
- Periodontal disease
- Severe decay
- Badly broken tooth, beyond repair
- Poorly positioned teeth or overcrowding
After determining that extraction is necessary, a member of the Indigo Dentistry team will discuss options with you for replacing the extracted tooth. Having a gap between your teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, creating problems with chewing and long-term dental health.
The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. We will oversee your recovery and help you retain a smile full of vitality and joy.
An alveoloplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes and smooths out the alveolar ridge after a tooth or teeth have been extracted or wherever there may be bulbous bone impinging on adjacent tissues or preventing placement of a prosthesis, such as a denture, bridge, or implant.
