Minor Surgical Procedures
Removal of broken teeth, wisdom teeth, retained or buried roots, and upper and lower jaw cysts are all cases of minor oral surgery. Additionally, it involves apical surgery and the elimination of minor soft tissue abnormalities in the mouth, such as mucocele, ranula, high labial or lingual frenum, etc.
At Smart Smile Care Dental Center, minor surgical procedures include the below surgical treatment-
Removal of Wisdom Teeth
A wisdom tooth extraction is required to get rid of an impacted tooth that hasn’t fully emerged from under the gum line. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause a lot of pain, difficulty cleaning the tooth, and inappropriate tooth eruption, particularly if the tooth shifts sideways and brushes up against neighbouring teeth.
And endodontic retreatment, also known as a repeat root canal procedure, is performed on a tooth that has already undergone root canal therapy. When the first root canal procedure has failed and the original symptoms (infection, tooth abscess, or discomfort)have returned, this small oral surgery is required.
Treatment for TMJ Disorder
When medicine, exercise, splints, or physical therapy are ineffective for treating TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) issues, minor dental surgery is required. Similar to when a particular jaw joint has been confirmed to be affected by TMJ Problem, the surgical operation is performed on the jaw area.
Apicoectomy is a surgical operation that involves cleaning the area around the tooth’s tip and placing a filling at the end of the root. The intention is to keep any germs that could still be present in the canal system under check.
