Oral Surgery in Pflugerville, TX

Peak Dental Pflugerville is proud to say that our team of professionals is experienced in handling various oral surgeries. There are several different types of oral surgeries and understanding what they are and how they can benefit you can help ease your fears.

When Wisdom Teeth are Impacted

When your third set of molars come in, sometimes they can get stuck beneath your gumline or even come in at an unfortunate angle. This can be very detrimental to the health of your surrounding teeth and can result in some serious pain. Peak Dental Pflugerville can help remove these teeth through oral surgery and help save your other teeth and reduce your pain.

When You Need a Dental Implant

Though saving your natural teeth is a huge priority for Peak Dental Pflugerville, sometimes it just can’t be done. When you need a replacement tooth, you might have to get a dental implant. This oral surgery is comprised of planting a titanium post into your jawbone, where, with time, it will begin to fuse with your bone and tissue. Once healed, it acts as great support for your crown or new tooth.

When A Biopsy is Required

Checking out abscesses in your mouth is a very important part of dental care. If you’ve noticed one, tell your dentist immediately. If it looks suspicious, he may order a biopsy to screen for oral cancer. He will remove a small section of tissue and have it sent to a lab for further testing.

When You Need Jaw Surgery

Having jaw surgery can resolve a number of problems including the alignment of your jaw. This will help restore any function that might be lost, and can actually help your facial appearance!

When Sleep Apnea Requires Surgery

There are a number of treatments available for sleep apnea, but sometimes surgery is going to be the recommended one. The team at Peak Dental Pflugerville will help you reduce your symptoms of this problematic condition by removing some of the excess tissue in the back of your throat.

When Reconstructive Surgery is Recommended

Unfortunately, there are times in our lives where we might suffer from facial injuries or knocked out teeth. This can result in poor chewing abilities and even problems speaking. However, our team of dentists can perform reconstructive surgery in order to replace your damaged teeth, help fix your jawbone (and joint issues), and improve your gumline.
