The best oral health procedures

Oral Surgeon Santa Clarita

The terminology ‘oral surgeon’ usually sounds intimidating to many. Unfortunately, this is one of the professions with the highest number of social misconceptions, all of which are based on the common, ill-informed phobia of dental procedures. At Smile Care Valencia, we work towards killing off this misconception by offering our clients nothing but the best oral health procedures.

We have some of the most qualified oral surgeons who are well trained in oral surgeries and other dentistry procedures. Just as the name suggests, our ultimate goal is to ensure that you restore your healthy smile. Nonetheless, there are certain facts that you need to understand about oral surgeons so as to better understand the role they play. Of course, their main job is to conduct oral surgeries.

However, there are several other treatment procedures that they carry out on a daily basis.

Below is a complete list:

Wisdom teeth removal

One of the primary duties of an oral surgeon Santa Clarita is removing one’s wisdom teeth. Arguably, this is the most common procedure for oral surgeons. They use a variety of technologies and techniques to remove this kind of teeth. This decision is reliant on various factors such as visibility and access of the teeth in question. With regards to anesthesia, removal of wisdom teeth can either use general or local anesthesia depending on the patient’s history as well as evaluation.

Surgical Extractions

Additionally, an oral surgeon Santa Clarita performs all kinds of oral surgical extractions. In most cases, this involves the removal of stubborn or rather difficult teeth. In most cases, such cases originate from general dentists who end up referring patients to oral surgeons after realizing that the affected teeth need a surgical extraction.

For instance, there are teeth with curved or long roots while others are positioned awkwardly such that there is a risk of damaging overlapping nerves within the oral cavity. In other cases, you may find that the teeth have been partially buried in the gum. In either case, do not fret. At Smile Care Valencia, we have qualified oral surgeons that are more than able to handle such complications without exposing you to any dental risk.

Dental implant

Although some regular dentists can perform this procedure, it is preferable for patients to have an oral surgeon Santa Clarita to do this for you. Dental implants are usually placed in a position where missing or damaged teeth once were.

In severe cases, the damaged teeth are usually left buried in the gum or were partially damaged. This requires a highly skilled oral surgeon to extract the tooth before placing the implant. In such cases, the implant should be done by the same oral surgeon since he/she knows the nature of the affected area better.

Bone grafting

Some injuries to the face or mouth are normally so severe that patients need corrective surgeries to get back to the usual. Such traumatic injuries are best handled by an oral surgeon Santa Clarita since they have the technical know-how of how to do bone grafting and restructuring of the jawbone, both of which are critical in oro-facial corrective procedures.
