Oral Surgical Procedures

Dr. Khemka Dental Clinic

Oral surgical procedures are a type of dental surgery that is performed on the teeth, gums, and jaw. These procedures can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of oral conditions, such as impacted teeth, gum disease, and jaw misalignment. It's important to note that the specific surgical procedures performed will depend on the individual patient's needs and the recommendations of their oral surgeon. If you require any specific information or have concerns about a particular procedure, it's best to consult with a qualified oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Some of the most common oral surgical procedures include:

Tooth extraction :

This is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. It can be done for a variety of reasons, such as a tooth that is decayed, infected, or impacted.

Dental implant surgery :

This is the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth.

Oral surgical procedures can be a safe and effective way to treat a variety of oral conditions. However, like any surgery, they carry some risks, such as bleeding, infection, and nerve damage. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of any oral surgical procedure with your dentist or surgeon before making a decision.
