Oral surgery is a specialized field of dentistry that addresses complex oral and maxillofacial issues, ranging from wisdom tooth extraction to more advanced procedures like dental implant placement. At Regency Dental in Omaha, NE, our highly skilled dentists, Dr. Kenneth Spanel and Dr. Dan Ellingson offer a wide range of oral surgery services to improve oral health and enhance overall well-being.
Is Oral Surgery Right for You?
Oral surgery may be necessary for various reasons. Still, it is essential to thoroughly evaluate and consult with Dr. Spanel or Dr. Ellingson to determine the best course of action for your unique situation. Our team is here to guide you through the process, answer your questions, and provide the support you need to make informed decisions about your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery encompasses various surgical procedures that target issues affecting the mouth, teeth, jaw, and facial structures. Dr. Spanel and Dr. Ellingson typically perform these procedures. Some common oral surgery procedures include:
We are often called upon to remove problematic or impacted teeth, including wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary due to severe decay, infection, overcrowding, or orthodontic treatment requirements.
Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Spanel and Dr. Ellingson are trained to surgically place dental implants into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for prosthetic teeth.
We can diagnose and treat various oral diseases and conditions, such as cysts, tumors, and infections. We may recommend surgical removal to ensure oral health when we find these issues.
Pre-prosthetic surgery involves preparing the mouth for the placement of dentures or other prosthetic devices. These treatments may include bone grafting and soft tissue modification to optimize the fit and comfort of the prosthesis.
When a patient lacks sufficient bone structure to support dental implants, we can perform bone grafting procedures to augment the bone volume in the jaw.
Why Choose Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is essential to dental care, addressing many issues that can impact your oral health and quality of life. Here are some reasons why you might need oral surgery:
Relief from Pain:
Oral surgery can alleviate pain caused by impacted wisdom teeth, severe dental infections, or misaligned jaws.
Improved Oral Function:
Procedures like dental implant placement and wisdom teeth removal can significantly improve your ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently.
Whitening Gel Application:
A powerful yet safe, hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel is applied to your teeth.
Bone grafting, implants, and other procedures can enhance your facial aesthetics, providing a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
Restoration of Oral Health:
Removing cysts, tumors, or diseased tissue through oral surgery is crucial for preventing further health complications.
Preservation of Oral Structures:
Procedures like bone grafting can help preserve the jawbone’s integrity and support long-term dental health.
