Oral surgery encompasses a range of surgical procedures that address various conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, and facial regions. These procedures can include tooth extractions, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, dental implant placement, bone recontouring and treatment of oral infections. These surgeries are often performed under local or IV sedation, ensuring patient comfort. Advanced imaging technologies aid in precise diagnosis and planning. Oral surgery aims to restore oral health, alleviate pain, correct facial abnormalities, and improve both function and aesthetics. After surgery, patients receive thorough post-operative care instructions to promote healing and minimize discomfort. Surgical procedures offered at Marysville Family Dentistry include:
