There are many different types of oral surgery, such as extracting an impacted wisdom tooth or even a root canal. The process will always start with an initial consultation where the dentist will determine the type of procedure that is most suitable for your dental needs. Then, you will also be consulted by a dental surgeon, who will perform the procedure.
But no matter the type of oral surgery you need, your oral health will be well taken care of at New Horizon Institute!
The type of oral surgery you need will be decided based on the current state of your oral health and what needs to be addressed. The New Horizon Institute dental surgeons are greatly experienced in a variety of procedures. Here are a few common types of dental surgeries we offer at our practice:
Dental occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite. If your bite is misaligned, it can affect the way you eat, speak, or even your appearance. Though a lot of alignment issues can be resolved through braces, more complex cases can require surgery.
This is a procedure in which the surgeon will replace lost bone mass, which can happen as a result of lost adult teeth or even bone disease. If you require a dental implant, for instance, you might first need a bone graft to make sure there is enough tissue to properly place the implant.
The sinuses are air-filled pathways located just above the back portion of the upper jaw. If you need a bone graft in this location, a sinus lift is often required to make sure the graft doesn’t negatively impact the sinuses.
This is a surgical procedure in which the jaw is reshaped, usually as preparation for dental implants when the patient has lost teeth.
Tori are a type of bone growth that can appear along the jaw. While not dangerous, a torus can be uncomfortable and impact your oral hygiene negatively. The tori removal procedure will use drills or lasers, depending on the case.
