Oral surgery. The term sounds a bit ominous, but really just refers to a series of procedures that involve more than the teeth. oral surgeryIf you're receiving a dental implant, getting an impacted wisdom tooth extracted or need gum tissue augmented, Frederick Dental Group in Frederick, MD, is the place to be. Oral surgeries of various kinds are just a few of the procedures Dr. Dave Verma and Dr. Arpana Verma perform. You can trust us for maximum comfort and the best possible results.

What oral surgery involves

It may involve the jaw bone, gums, teeth, or other structures in the maxillofacial area. These procedures need some kind and degree of anesthesia (Oral sedation, or nitrous oxide) to ensure you're comfortable during the procedure.

Typically, the person who needs oral surgery may require:

  • Tooth extraction (impacted wisdom teeth may be encased in bone or gum tissue or a tooth may be too decayed to save)
  • Gum grafting to heal periodontal disease
  • Osseous surgery to reduce the size of periodontal pockets between the gums and tooth roots
  • Bone grafting to provide anchorage for dental implants
  • Relief from TMJ/TMD (jaw joint dysfunction) or sleep apnea
  • Placement of single or multiple dental implants to replace missing teeth
  • Root canal therapy to remove diseased interior pulp
  • Pre-procedure examinations
