The 5 Most Common Oral Surgeries
#1) Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is the most common of all dental surgeries. Because the average mouth has no room to support the two extra teeth at the back, most people will need an oral surgeon to remove their wisdom teeth. After a dentist has seen your x-rays, they can tell if and when you should remove your wisdom teeth.
Recent advancements have made wisdom teeth removal more comfortable than ever before. With Beaverton Oral Surgeons, the procedure is more gentle, and the recovery periods are the shortest they have ever been.

#2) Dental Implants
The human body does not produce replacement teeth. Although we are born with all the natural teeth we will have, oral surgeons, have found a way to replace missing teeth with lifelike artificial copies. Once it’s complete, the dental implant fits durably into the empty space and functions just like a normal tooth.
Dental implants dramatically improve the lives of patients. They can smile confidently and chew regularly. An implant works just as well, if not even better, than your natural teeth.
#3) Bone Grafting
If a patient ignores a missing tooth for too long, then the jawbone under the empty spot will weaken or be reabsorbed over time. When this happens, the bone is no longer strong enough to support a dental implant.
Thankfully, oral surgeons can fix the problem of a weak jawbone. By using the patient’s own bone from one section to shore up another, this bone grafting strengthens the target spot and readies it to receive an implant.
#4) Corrective Jaw Surgeries
Many oral problems are actually caused by the jaw. Though you may not think about it immediately, a badly aligned jawbone can make activities like eating, speaking and breathing harder than they have to be.
Only a medically trained doctor can tell you if your symptoms can be improved by corrective jaw surgery. For any questions, please ask one of our staff members for more information or to schedule a consultation.
#5) Surgeries for Mouth and Facial Trauma
