Oral Surgery in Gulfport, MS

Oral Surgery in Gulfport, MS

Oral surgery is a branch of dentistry encompassing many procedures to address complex dental issues and improve oral health. Oral surgery is a specialized field of dentistry involving surgical interventions to treat conditions affecting the mouth, teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures. It covers procedures that remove teeth, repair damaged teeth, or correct dental problems.  

At Emery L. Edwards, DDS, the most common oral surgery procedure we perform is tooth extractions. 

Types of Oral Surgery

Tooth Extractions

A tooth may need to be extracted for several reasons. The most common among these is severe tooth decay or damage, making saving the tooth with a root canal or other treatment impossible. Other reasons for extraction include wisdom teeth removal, overcrowding in the mouth, and preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. However, wisdom teeth often become impacted due to limited space and potential misalignment, causing pain, infection, and other dental issues. Our dentist in Gulfport, MS, removes wisdom teeth to alleviate discomfort and prevent complications. 

The Benefits of Oral Surgery

Restored Functionality

Many oral surgery procedures aim to restore normal oral function, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Prevention of Complications

Addressing dental issues through oral surgery can prevent future complications. Wisdom teeth removal prevents potential pain, infection, and misalignment caused by impacted teeth. Corrective jaw surgery prevents problems related to malocclusion, misaligned jaws, and difficulty chewing or speaking.
