Oral Surgery

Improving Your Oral Health

What does oral surgery have to do with misalignment? In many cases, an oral surgical procedure can be vital in the early stages of correcting misalignment. If you need a tooth removed or replaced, then the team at Dental Associates of Moreno Valley can perform the procedure. Our team has the skills and experience to provide a safe and comfortable surgical experience.

What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is administered for a variety of reasons, such as when a patient needs to remove a tooth or place a dental implant. In many cases, we may recommend such a procedure in the process of addressing your misalignment. If you want to achieve a straighter smile we will first examine your teeth and jaws. We will assess the factors behind your uneven smile and the level of treatment needed to correct the issue.

Why Do I Need These Procedures?

If you have an impacted wisdom tooth or a third molars about to erupt, you may need an oral surgical procedure. Third molars are four addition teeth that erupt in our late teens or early 20s. In some cases, they move the teeth out of proper alignment or become impacted, only partially erupting and leading to serious oral health problems. The surgery allows a dentist to remove them before the orthodontic treatment continues.

In other cases, your smile may be crowded. To make room for your smile correction the dentist may suggest an extraction. This oral surgery involves removing one or more teeth to make room. The orthodontic treatment afterward moves the teeth to better positions so you can achieve an even smile.

Will Everyone Looking for an Even Smile Need Surgery?

No, not everyone will require surgical procedure beforehand. But for those who do, we are available to answer any questions or address any concerns. We can also provide a local anesthetic and even sedation dentistry to help patients remain calm and comfortable during the procedure.
