Posted on 1/23/2023 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
5 Common Surgeries Performed by an Oral SurgeonOral surgery is not as frightening as most people purport it to be. Most of these procedures are outpatient. Some dental problems call for oral surgery, which an oral surgeon performs.

If you are looking at available options for oral surgery, here are 5 common types.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is an easy outpatient procedure. If your tooth is decayed and cannot be saved or infected, you may require to have it removed. For visible teeth, this is a simple procedure. The procedure is a bit complex for impacted teeth, broken or below the surface. It is a procedure that can be done under general or local anesthesia.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

There are various types of jaw surgeries to correct problems associated with the jaw. For example, a shattered or misaligned jaw. These can prevent you from performing simple tasks like eating, speaking, and breathing. Jaw surgery improves the appearance and function of your jaw.

Dental Bone Graft

A dental bone graft is a procedure for patients requiring dental implants. It involves placing a healthy bone material on the area where the loss of the bone has occurred. A dental bone graft is also done after tooth loss, trauma, or gum disease, where bone grafting is done to restore your bone.

Dental Implantation

Dental implantation is a common and reliable method of tooth replacement. These are permanent artificial teeth surgically stitched into the patient's gum. They have a natural look and perform like natural teeth. The most common types of implants are made from titanium.

Periodontal Surgery

Severe periodontitis can lead to surgery. The surgeon restores the tissue around the teeth by cleaning the roots and flushing the plaque and bacteria. Damage caused by gum disease is reversible with this surgery.


Oral surgery can generally improve your well-being. Consultation with your dentist will enable you to find a surgery that will fix any dental issues that you may have.
