If you have an oral health condition that requires surgical intervention, we are happy to provide the expert care you need. Olympia Fields Dental Associates is fully equipped with the latest technology to provide complex procedures, eliminate pain, and restore your health.
Whether your oral health condition has been diagnosed by one of our own dentists or you’ve been referred to us by another clinic, we are here to provide you with the best possible care. We will work with you to determine the optimal treatment plan for your particular oral health issue. Our highly skilled staff is trained to execute any of the following complex procedures:
- Tooth Extractions (Wisdom Teeth) – Teeth extractions are the most common form of oral surgery. This may be a solution for damaged teeth, overcrowding, impacted wisdom teeth, and more.
- Dental Implants – If you have missing teeth or severe tooth decay, dental implants may be a highly effective treatment for you. Here, we utilize titanium implants that, over time, fuse with the jawbone. The result is a strong, natural-looking tooth that can last the rest of your life.
- Corrective Jaw Surgery – This procedure can remedy dental irregularities as well as skeletal malformations such as a misaligned jaw.
- Sleep Apnea/Upper Airway Treatments – Those who experience sleep apnea often stop breathing multiple times a night. We offer procedures to remedy obstructed breathing in the night.
- Bone Grafting – Bone grafting is used to supplement weak or thin bones (primarily the jawbone, in this case). We often use this to create a stronger, more substantial base for dental implants.
- TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Treatment – This is used to help those who suffer from pain or injury in the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull.
- Apicoectomy – If the site of a root canal becomes infected, this procedure permits us to remove any infected tissue.
- Cleft Lip & Palate Repair – This procedure remedies the birth defect that presents as a physical split in the lip and palate.
There are a number of reasons why we might recommend that you have a tooth extracted, which can include any of the following problems:
- Teeth misalignment
- Severe damage
- Impacted teeth
- Wisdom teeth (with impending issues)
- Severe decay
Depending on the location of the tooth that requires extracting, we may need to use an anesthetic during the procedure. (Please let your dentist know if you have any allergies or complications with anesthetics.) Once the site has been properly numbed, we will then either break the tooth apart for extraction or simply pull the tooth out. If your dentist has determined that you need a tooth pulled, it is imperative that you schedule the appointment as soon as possible. This will help you to avoid the risk of infection or further damage.
