Services Provided by Dr. Jamia Luria, an Expert Dental Surgeon in Illinois:
Most common dental surgeries for which patients may need to consult an oral surgeon include-
1. Tooth Extractions– When the natural tooth gets severely decayed or damaged/ injured and it can’t be saved, prompt tooth removal by a surgeon becomes necessary. Some cases for which an oral surgeon is consulted in order to extract the tooth and prevent the situation from worsening include severe pain or discomfort from the impacted tooth, misaligned teeth, difficult to treat teeth, bleeding gums, and serious cavities or decay below the gum line.
2. Placement of Dental Implants– This is an oral surgery wherein titanium posts are screwed into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth roots. It is followed by the placing of an abutment and the replacement tooth or teeth at the top (such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture).
3. Sleep Apnea and Snoring- Patients having troubled breathing can consult an oral surgeon for surgical removal of soft tissues of the lower jaw or oropharynx, to open the nasal passages for better breathing. Laser surgery is the latest approach.
4. Improvement in the Fit of Dentures- Dentures are customized false teeth, prosthetic devices that are designed in a dental laboratory using the mouth impressions of the patient. They help replace the missing natural teeth and restore the lost oral functions as well as fill out the appearance of the facial profile. Before placing dentures for the first time and ensuring their better fit, the oral surgeon helps in the process of bone grafting.
