Finding an Oral Surgeon Mount Vernon IL

There are many instances where someone needs an oral surgeon and often times the only way to alleviate oral pain is through seeing a dentist and having dental work performed. Like with any surgery, it is important to find a skilled dentist that you trust. Oral surgery can be highly intrusive depending on the type of surgery you are having done. Some types of oral surgery are:

Maxillofacial surgery

This surgery corrects numerous injuries, diseases, and defects in the face, jaw, head and neck. It helps to repair the hard and soft tissues of the jaw, or maxillofacial region.

Dental implants

These implants have the same effect as dentures, however, they last longer, are much more durable and have a better look than dentures. Patients can get one implant, several, or have all their teeth replaced.

Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth often times need to be removed. There is often not enough space in the mouth for them and they can cause over crowding, causing the other teeth to shift in the mouth. They may also need to be removed due to cavities or tooth decay.

Tooth extractions

This is used to treat abscessed teeth or when a tooth is severely infected and there is no way to treat it. This is done to prevent the infection from spreading to other teeth.
