Oral Surgery Procedures
In some cases, our dentist may not be able to return your mouth to full function and beauty with simple restorative or cosmetic treatments, and he may recommend oral surgery in Tampa, Florida. Dr. Ward Whitaker is highly experienced in these procedures and will walk you through the entire process before beginning. To learn more and schedule your visit to Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa, call our office at 813-876-6930.
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. However, oral surgery may be necessary 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, correct uneven jaw growth or improve the fit of dentures)
- Bone grafts (to increase bone density or improve the chances of a successful dental implant)
Our team is committed to ensuring that your oral surgery is as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to contact us today to learn more about oral surgery and schedule your individual consultation!
