Dentoalveolar Surgery & Extraction San Antonio TX

Dentoalveolar surgery is a blanket term used to describe a number of different oral surgery procedures that involve the teeth and the structures that support them.

Surgery on structures like alveolar bone and soft tissue structures like the gums are included under the description of dentoalveolar surgery. There are a number of common surgeries that can be described as being dentoalveolar surgeries.

Tooth Extraction

When a tooth suffers some sort of physical trauma or becomes so damaged by decay that it can no longer function properly, we will sometimes opt to extract the tooth from your mouth surgically. Surgical extractions include impaction removals, whether they are wisdom teeth or not.

Surgical Exposure of Impacted Teeth

When teeth require removal for orthodontic purposes, those surgeries fall under the description of dentoalveolar surgery. If there is not enough room in the mouth for a tooth, or if it is coming in at an angle that will cause it to be impacted, we will often opt to remove the tooth before it has a chance to damage any other structures in the mouth. Potential tooth impaction is a good reason not to miss a bi-annual visit to our office for an examination. Early detection of these issues can end up saving teeth.

Surgical Endodontic Procedures

Surgical apicoectomies are performed on teeth that have undergone root canal therapy but are still affected by a bacterial infection. Typically, the root of the tooth is worked on in these procedures.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

When you are being fitted for dentures there is a chance that the structure of your mouth will need to be changed in order for the prosthesis to be comfortable. Most of the surgeries (skin grafts, removal of oddly shaped bone) are classified as dentoalveolar surgeries.

Surgical Mitigation of Bone Loss

When tooth loss is an issue, bone loss is usually not far behind. If you lose teeth without replacing them there is a chance that your jaw bone will begin to recede. In order for a jaw that has experienced bone loss to support a dental implant it will require a bone graft.
