Dental Surgery, sometimes called oral surgery, is a dental procedure that is performed on teeth or the surrounding oral areas. Dental Surgery could be required for a number of reasons and to treat a variety of different dental ailments.

At Buhite and Buhite DDS, we always make every attempt to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady. Unfortunately, in some cases damage to teeth is so advanced that it may be necessary to remove the tooth in order to maintain dental health.
If a tooth is fractured, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional.
Dental Surgery includes extractions (removing broken or infected teeth, including wisdom teeth), reshaping the jaw bone, grafting the jaw bone, as well as periodontal surgery (around infected teeth). These conditions are typically the most common, however, Dental Surgery can include any type of dental procedure.
Other Dental Surgeries
Endodontic treatment - root canals - is necessary if a tooth is infected. It is typically caused by tooth decay and can involve various procedures, including a root canal or apicoectomy. Orthognathic dental surgery involves extractions and jaw bone reshaping and re-positioning. Periodontal dental surgery, which is also called gum surgery, is used to manage and treat bone and gum disease.
