Get Rid of Pain and Discomfort with Oral Surgery

When a patient suffers from issues with their teeth, jaw, or surrounding areas, oral surgery may be necessary. Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure that is performed inside of or around the mouth or jaw. Usually executed by a dental specialist, oral surgeries can help relieve pain and discomfort as well as improve the look of your smile. University Dental Group provides exceptional Coral Gables oral surgery to improve your smile and, by extension, the way you live your life.

Minor Extractions

Unlike a surgical tooth extraction which involves the removal of bone, gum tissue, or both, minor tooth extraction involves a tooth that can be seen above the gums being removed by a dental health professional in either one piece or in multiple pieces. The extent of the dental extraction may vary depending on the shape, size, position, and location of the tooth. Reasons for extractions include:

  • Infections
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • In preparation for a dental prosthesis
  • Injury or trauma to the teeth or the surrounding bone
  • Baby teeth falling at the wrong age
  • Complications involving the wisdom teeth
  • To prepare for braces or Invisalign if the teeth are too crowded

Wisdom Teeth Removal (Non-Bony Extractions)

Wisdom teeth extraction is a form of oral surgery involving the removal of the tough, wide molars in the back of your mouth. Since wisdom teeth are the last to erupt from the gums and often the first teeth to require surgical extraction, they are often impacted meaning they have not fully emerged from a patient’s gums. Though some people don’t have all their wisdom teeth, you’re more likely to have issues with them than any other teeth. Wisdom teeth extractions are extremely common, and roughly 10 million wisdom teeth are extracted in the U.S. each year.
