Oral Surgery

ORAL SURGERY

There are a number of dental and oral issues and these all require different types of treatments. An oral surgery dentist in an oral treatment center will effectively handle some of these cases. Oral surgery has been the perfect solution for these cases so far. Let’s consider these cases.

Impacted Teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the set of teeth that develop last. These teeth may sometimes come out from the gum line and there is enough room in the jaw to accommodate them. But at other times, one or possibly more of these last molars may not emerge in the proper position or may fail to grow out of the gum line and may, therefore, become impacted or trapped in between the gum tissue and the jawbone. This trapped wisdom teeth can lead to pain, swelling, and infection of the gum tissue around the wisdom teeth. Also, impacted wisdom tooth is capable of causing a permanent damage to the surrounding gums, teeth, and bone and also may sometimes lead to cyst or tumor formation which may end up causing damage to some sections of the jaw. All these are the reasons that make dentists recommend the surgical removal of wisdom teeth for people that have them.

Other teeth such as cuspids and bicuspids can also become impacted just like wisdom teeth and may need to be taken out by an oral surgeon as well.

Repair of Facial Injury

Fractured facial bones and broken jaws can be fixed with the employment of oral surgery.

Lesion Removal and Biopsy

Abnormal tissue growth can be treated by oral surgeons by sending a small sample that is taken, to the laboratory for testing and identification. The oral surgeon can then take out these lesions or effectively manage them.

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair

Failure of some or all parts of the mouth and nasal cavity to attain proper growth during the fetal development stage can lead to cleft lip and cleft palate. This might lead to a gap in the lip or a split or an opening may occur in the roof of the mouth. Oral surgeons will usually work as members of a healthcare specialists team in order to fix these issues by administering a series of surgical procedures and treatments that may span over a good number of years.

Facial infections

Swelling and pain that is experienced in neck, face or the jaw might be a sign of an infection. If not properly handled in a timely manner, such infections can become dangerous and life-threatening. Diagnosis and treatment of this case can be handled by an oral surgeon. If any tooth is involved, it will be extracted.

Snoring/ Sleep Apnea

Surgical methods are used to take out soft tissues located in the oropharynx. Laser treatment is also an option. But all these are done when nonsurgical methods have not yielded any positive result.

If you are wondering, where can I locate the best oral surgeon near me? Then look no further as you are sure to get a good oral surgeon Houston at URBN Dental.

Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I've had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white. They were very knowledgeable in regards to my insurance and I've had no issues. The service there is impeccable!

The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. I love how they not only take X-rays, but also photos of all your teeth and put them on the big screen. They spent as much time as I needed to go over each area and explain specifics of each tooth. I definitely have a greater understanding of what is going on in there and what I need to do. I also love their space, it has a calming vibe with all kinds of artwork on display. You almost feel like youโ€™re not at the dentist! Thank you all so much, I look forward to seeing you all again! (Said no one to their dentist ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Beautiful location and office. Very friendly and welcoming staff! I had a great time conversing with them about movies and music. Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very knowledgeable and stressed the importance of making sure the patient knew what their game plan was. The office is very high tech as well so it was super cool to know that I was getting the latest tech being use on me.

Love the location, the dentist AND the staff. Everyone there is awesome. It's rare that I leave a dentist office feeling just as good as when I arrive. I was sad I didn't get to see Snickers, but all in all I had a great experience my first time here. Glad to finally have a new "home" dentist since moving to Texas.

From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now, have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class.

Very friendly staff. The hygienist's were so knowledgeable and really took the time to teach you about your teeth, they gave my husband and I "homework" to improve our oral health. Love it! Angela was great, great sense of humor (made me laugh a lot) and very professional. Awesome job Nicole, very friendly and took the time to answer all the questions we had (love she was recommending eateries for hubby to take me :). Julia was great at the front counter very lively and knowledgeable as well. They all really took the time and customized everything for us. Able to get free electric toothbrushes but didn't have any in stock.

I am usually scared of going to the dentist for my annual cleaning but I was completely blown away by the amazing customer service from the staff. Julia was extremely helpful and explained my dental coverage and out of pocket costs. Angela did an exceptional job explaining to me about the importance of dental hygiene and actually taught me how to floss properly. The office was extremely clean and upscale. Dr. Bridget was very sweet and great bedside manners. She explained everything about the treatment plan in a very thorough and concise manner. I was extremely impressed by everyone on the office and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment.

Great place for all your dental needs. Very inviting and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I've been looking for a good dentist for awhile while neglecting my oral health, but now I think I've found my place. 10/10 would come back for a follow-up appointment.

Very friendly staff who put up with my inane sense of humor. The entire team team spoke with me 1:1, including:Dental assistants, hygienist, dentist, and insurance admin (explained everything to me in detail including how my insurance works).They explained my x-rays to me, the effects of flossing correctly / incorrectly. I feel like they gave me the education I didn't get as a child on how to care for my mouth, and why it's important. I was doing good stuff for my oral health-- just not correctly or with a positive attitude.GREAT aftercare package.
