If preventive care and non-surgical treatments fail to resolve a dental problem, our dentist may recommend oral surgery to restore your smile and oral health. We will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation to determine which type of procedure will be most effective and develop an individualized treatment plan that will meet your needs. Call us today at 843-549-5913 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Shannon Pye, and to learn more about oral surgery in Walterboro, South Carolina.
Oral surgery includes a number of surgical dental treatments. The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile and the surrounding structures, such as your jaw. In many cases, we strive to provide the most conservative treatment possible. Oral surgery may be necessary, however, to correct certain conditions and improve your oral and overall health. Oral surgery may include:
- Tooth extraction (for teeth that are decayed, damaged, or infected to the point that an effective restoration is impossible)
- Wisdom teeth removal (for wisdom teeth that are impacted or have grown in at an incorrect angle)
- Jaw surgery (to treat a TMJ disorder, to correct uneven jaw growth, or to improve the fit of dentures)
- Bone grafts (to increase bone density and/or to improve the chances for a successful dental implant)
While we provide some oral surgery treatments at our office, we also work closely with local oral surgeons and specialists to ensure that you receive the high-quality results you deserve. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and your dental needs to determine whether oral surgery is the best available treatment choice for you.
We will ensure that your oral surgery is as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to contact us today to learn more about oral surgery and to schedule your individual consultation!
