Oral Surgery Q & A

What is Oral Surgery?

Good oral health is important to your overall well-being. Dr. Narang diagnoses and treats a range of conditions — not just related to your teeth and gums — that occur within your mouth and jaw area.

The umbrella term “oral surgery” refers to a variety of procedures ranging from dental implants to cleft palate repair. Many of these procedures are quite short and simple, needing only a local anesthetic, and can be performed by Dr. Narang during a single office visit. Others are more complex and may require ongoing liaison with other medical professionals, such as a plastic surgeon.

Which Tooth-Related Conditions Require Oral Surgery?

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause swelling and infection, so they need to be surgically removed in order to stop the pain and prevent permanent damage to the jaw area. Sometimes Dr. Narang needs to remove other types of teeth that have become damaged, diseased, or are putting pressure on those nearby, and he performs the extraction under local anesthetic. If you lose a tooth, you may require a dental implant, which Dr. Narang surgically attaches to your jawbone in order to anchor your replacement tooth.

Which Conditions of the Jaw Require Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery can be used to correct unequal jaw growth, which causes difficulties in eating, swallowing, and speaking, and to repair damage to a fractured jawbone or broken facial bone. It can also fix irregularities in the jaw that affect the fit and comfort of dentures or cause jaw grinding.

Oral surgery is one form of treatment for advanced cases of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Problems with this tiny joint between the skull and the jaw are a common cause of head and face pain.

Do Oral Soft Tissues Ever Require Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery can be used to identify and correct problems within the soft tissues of the mouth and jaw, including correcting cleft lips and palates or draining an infected area. If you’re experiencing mouth lesions, which can indicate a serious systemic disease, Dr. Narang can take a biopsy for testing.

Snoring or sleep apnea can also be treated with oral surgery. Removal of some of the soft tissues at the back of the throat or in the lower jaw clears obstructions and prevents blockage of the airways during sleep.
