Minor Oral Surgeries
The term “Minor oral surgery” refers to smaller operations and includes removing wisdom teeth, impacted teeth, and severely broken-down teeth, as well as apicectomies, biopsies and other procedures. These procedures are performed by oral surgeons, who are highly trained specialists. They recommend the best treatment plan for you and make sure you understand the treatment and feel comfortable throughout the surgery. Oral Surgeons are trained to treat patients under sedation or general anesthetic if this is required. These procedures have relatively short recovery period.
What is Wisdom Tooth Removal Surgery?
Wisdom tooth extraction is a dental the most common surgery procedure that involves cutting through the gum tissue covering the tooth, removing the connective tissue between the wisdom tooth and the bone, removing the wisdom tooth, and sewing the gum closed again.
Occasionally, the bone around an impacted tooth must be removed to perform the extraction. In some instances, the wisdom tooth may need to be cut into sections to be removed.
Wisdom teeth often known as third molars are the last teeth to erupt. People usually get them in late teens or early twenties. However, even instances of eruption in late adulthood are common. If they erupt smoothly and without any interruption, then they can be proved as an asset. But the problem with third molars is that in case they do not erupt properly or are misaligned, they would need to be extracted. If they are poorly aligned, then they can damage the adjacent teeth.
The cost of oral surgery will depend on the type of procedure and the complexity of the surgery. Additional fees will apply if you require sedation or a general anesthetic. Your dentist or oral surgeon will recommend a treatment option best suited to you and give you an estimate of the price and payment options during your consultation visit at My Dentist.
