Oral Surgery

Tooth Extraction:

This is the most common type of oral surgery and involves the removal of a tooth that is damaged, decayed, impacted, or causing other dental problems. At Koussa Dental Group, our practitioners use local anesthesia to numb the area during the procedure.

Wisdom Tooth Removal:

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often do not have sufficient space to erupt properly, leading to pain, infection, or damage to nearby teeth. Surgical extraction of wisdom teeth under local anesthesia may be recommended to prevent further complications.

Dental Implants:

Implants are used to replace missing teeth. During this procedure, a titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for a dental crown or bridge. This helps restore both the appearance and function of the missing tooth.

Biopsies:

When abnormal growths or lesions are discovered in the mouth, an oral biopsy may be necessary. This procedure involves removing a small sample of the tissue for further examination and diagnosis of potential oral diseases, such as oral cancer.

Pre-prosthetic Surgery:

Sometimes, patients require oral surgery before getting dentures or other dental prosthetics. This may involve smoothing or reshaping the jawbone, removing excess tissue, or adjusting the bone structure to ensure a better fit for the prosthetic appliance.
