Dentists can perform a large number of surgical interventions in the mouth. The term “Minor Oral Surgery” refers to smaller operations and include removing wisdom teeth, impacted teeth and severely broken down teeth as well as apicectomies, biopsies and other procedures.
If teeth do not emerge out of the gums naturally, they can cause problems such as crowding, infections or diseased tissue. However, this can be fixed with a simple tooth extraction.
Wisdom teeth or third molars, are very commonly removed because many jaws are not large enough to accommodate them. Such teeth can cause infections, swelling and shifting of other teeth.
If your upper or lower jaw does not grow together properly, it can cause difficulty eating, breathing, talking or swallowing. In extreme cases, oral surgery can create a jaw structure that is more balanced and functional.
A cleft palate is a birth defect in which portions of the nasal cavity and mouth don’t grow together properly resulting in a gap between roof of the mouth, lip or both. We, at Sai Dental Clinic provide corrections to these defects.
An infection in the face, neck or jaws may require an oral surgeon to drain the infected area and extract any teeth that may be causing the infection or affected by it.
If you experience severe snoring or sleep apnea and other treatment methods have been ineffective, a minor procedure can be performed to correct these issues.
