What is oral surgery?

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 in Springdale, Arkansas 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 grow 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 J. PARHAM DENTISTRY, we also work closely with local oral surgeons and specialists to ensure that you receive the high-quality results you deserve.
