Oral Surgical Procedures

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck. It involves, but is not limited to: wisdom teeth removal, apicoectomy, TMJ disorder, facial trauma, corrective jaw surgery, oral pathology, dental implants and bone grafts.

Some of the surgical procedure relating to hard & soft tissues routinely performed at Dr. Sood’s Dental Health Care are:

  • Simple extractions
  • Complex Extraction - related to impacted teeth & retained roots.
  • Alveoloplasty - Used to reshape the dental ridge done sometimes prior to denture fabrication.
  • Fractures treated conservatively as well as surgically.

What are "impacted wisdom teeth?"

In dental terminology an "impacted tooth" refers to a tooth that has failed to emerge fully into its expected position. This failure to erupt properly may occur either because there is not room enough in the jaw for the tooth, or because the angulation of the tooth is improper

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth erupt between the ages of 17-25. When a wisdom tooth does not have enough space to erupt, it gets trapped in the bone. Most people have four wisdom teeth one in each corner of the mouth, but each tooth can be at a different stage of eruption and position.

Being at the back of the mouth , good oral hygiene remains a challenge. Thus these teeth are prone to infection. Also because of their position and angulation, wisdom teeth can cause pressure on adjacent teeth. A flare up can cause sudden onset of symptoms.

Complications caused by Wisdom Teeth

  • Infection in the wisdom tooth and/or adjacent tooth.
  • Pain over the angle of the jaw.
  • Swelling.
  • Headache and other facial pains.
  • Inability to open mouth properly.
  • Inflammation or swollen gums over the affected area.
  • Pressure on adjacent teeth leading to crowding.

Diagnosis and Treatment

  • X-Rays- help to determine position an angulation of the tooth along with shape of the roots.
  • Medication- Antibiotics and anti-inflammatories are used to reduce pain, infection and swelling.
  • Surgery: Operculectomy or disimpaction, either the flap of gum directly overlying the tooth can be trimmed to facilitate tooth eruption or if the tooth is infected or if there is insufficient space for eruption than the tooth is surgically removed.
