Oral Surgery Doesn’t Have To Be Scary [BLOG]

Oral surgery certainly isn’t something anyone looks forward to. But it also doesn’t have to be something to fear, either.
At least, not if you trust your oral surgery to our team of professionals at Mountain View Dental. With our comfortable office amenities, warm staff, and sedation options, you can get the treatment you need without the stress, fear, or pain.
Dr. Reese and our skilled staff know how scary a trip to the dentist can be for many people, even if it’s just for simple dental cleanings and exams. Oral surgery can be even more stressful for those patients.
We’d love it if patients never required surgical procedures. The reality, though, is that sometimes it’s necessary to keep your teeth and gums healthy and functional. Like most problems, ignoring issues with your oral health will only lead to bigger problems in the future. When you think about it that way, oral surgery is a far better option than dealing with tooth pain everyday or tooth loss down the road.
Here are some common reasons we perform oral surgeries in our Acworth dental office.
You have a damaged tooth that needs pulled.
Your wisdom teeth are causing pain.
You require a bone graft before dental implants.
You’re having dental implants placed.
Fortunately, our team at Mountain View Dental is specially trained in a variety of areas that allow us to handle most oral surgery right in here in our Acworth office. The convenience of one location can help reduce the stress you feel about needing surgery.
An added advantage is that we offer oral sedation to make sure you feel completely relaxed while you receive the treatment you need.

You have a damaged tooth that needs pulled.

Our goal will always be to do all we can to save your natural tooth first. There are times, though, where that’s not the best solution. If we decide that the tooth you’re having trouble with can’t be saved, we can carefully and gently extract that tooth for the sake of your healthy remaining teeth.

Your wisdom teeth are causing pain or overcrowding.

Along with traditional braces, getting wisdom teeth removed is a common dental issue kids in their teens face. That’s because of the pain wisdom teeth can cause when they come in, or the crowding they can create after they’ve come in. In either case, it’s often best for your wisdom teeth to be removed.

You’re getting dental implants placed or require a bone graft before dental implants.

It’s in your best interest to replace missing teeth rather than let that empty space go unfilled. That’s because it doesn’t take long for your jawbone to deteriorate out of disuse. Over time, deteriorated jawbone will weaken the surrounding structures and put you at a much greater risk for losing more teeth.
If you’ve lost bone mass because of missing teeth, we can perform a bone graft to prepare you for dental implants. The implants are placed in the jaw and behave like your tooth’s root, fusing with your own jawbone. This gives you strength and stability no other tooth replacement option can.
