Oral Surgery in Springfield, MO

Oral Surgery in Springfield, MO

Oral surgery involves operating on your teeth, jaw, and other facial structures. There are many events where you may require oral surgery like missing teeth, tooth decay, gum disease, tooth infection, etc. Sometimes, you may also need to undergo a surgical procedure for facial reconstruction and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Dental implants are one of the most popular oral surgeries performed to replace missing teeth. It is a permanent restorative treatment where we insert a titanium-like stud into your jaw and later attach your artificial teeth to the same. Your new teeth look and function exactly like your natural teeth.

At times, restoration procedures like dental fillings, bonding, or others can’t save your teeth, and we may have to perform surgery like tooth extraction to protect your remaining teeth from decay. We make an incision into your gums to pull out your teeth. This procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia to make you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

Bone Grafting
Some people do not have enough jawbone tissue, making it impossible for us to perform other dental procedures, especially dental implants. In this case, we perform bone grafting. We take some bone tissues from the other areas of your body or even use an artificial bone and fuse it with your existing jawbone.

Corrective Jaw Surgery
We perform corrective jaw surgery to restore a variety of major and minor skeletal irregularities like a misaligned jaw. After the procedure, you may feel improvement in breathing, speaking, and chewing properly.

Sleep Apnea Treatment
If a mouthguard doesn’t help you in treating sleep apnea, we may perform surgery to relieve you from the problem. During the surgery, we remove excess soft tissue that may be blocking your airway to offer you permanent relief.

Wisdom teeth often erupt improperly in your mouth, thus leading to many other problems like overcrowding your teeth, excruciating pain while eating and talking, etc. We remove your wisdom teeth using surgery. This outpatient procedure includes light sedation so that you do not get anxious during the treatment.

Facial Reconstruction
Sometimes, events like accidents, traumas, and others may break your facial bones and jaw and may also knock out your teeth. We perform several reconstructive procedures to restore the appearance and function of your oral cavity, jaw, and face. The number of facial reconstruction surgeries may vary depending upon the severity of your condition.
