Oral Surgery in Manteca CA
In some cases, oral surgery is the most surefire option to correcting your oral health issue. While you may regard the idea of surgery as something that requires a hospital stay, oral surgery is often a short procedure. You may even be able to drive yourself home afterwards. Dr. Damle may determine that oral surgery is right for you in a variety of circumstances.
What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is a surgical procedure that treats your oral and maxillofacial regions, including the tissues in your mouth, throat, neck, and surrounding areas. Oral surgery often provides an instant fix to a problem that we cannot treat with a restorative treatment. For example, when a root canal treatment fails, we may need to surgically remove your tooth to preserve the health of your mouth. Or, you may require wisdom teeth removal. Perhaps your gumline needs re-contouring as a result of periodontal disease. Whatever your requirement, our number-one priority is resolving your condition while keeping you comfortable. Dr. Damle will apply local anesthetic to the affected area, and provides sedation options to patients who desire a more tranquil experience.
What Types of Oral Surgery Do You Offer?
At Aura Family Dentistry, we offer oral surgery for a variety of reasons. While Dr. Damle believes in taking a conservative approach to diagnoses and treatments, when oral surgery is your best option for returning to good oral health, she may suggest one of the following surgery options:
Am I a Good Candidate?
If preventive and restorative treatments have failed, or if oral surgery can quickly stop a problem in its tracks while inhibiting severe permanent damage, you may be a wonderful candidate for oral surgery. Surgery is often a final resort. Consider the following reasons that may solidify your candidacy for oral surgery:
- You Have Suffered from Periodontal Disease: You have receding gumlines, pocket formation, you have loose teeth, or your jawbone has deteriorated. We will need to start with oral surgery to fix the damage that has occurred from disease. The reconstructed tissue will often help prevent further deterioration as well as future periodontal disease.
- You Suffer from Sleep Apnea: Temporary fixes, such as oral appliances, have not successfully treated your sleep apnea. Surgery is necessary to remove the extra tissue so you can breathe effectively while you sleep.
