Oral Surgery in Valparaiso, IN

There are a variety of reasons you might need oral surgery, from wisdom teeth removal to jaw and bite issues. While some dental offices might refer you to a local hospital for oral surgery, at Accent Dental in Valparaiso, IN, we specialize in oral surgery. Instead of relying on an unfamiliar surgeon, you can work with a surgeon who already knows your dental history.

Oral Surgical Procedures

We do specialize in wisdom teeth removal at Accent Dental, but that’s only one reason you might need oral surgery. Here are a few other ways oral surgery can help treat oral and facial problems:

  • Bone grafts to strengthen the jaw — if your jaw is too weak to support dental implants, bone grafts can provide the necessary strength
  • Cleft lip and/or cleft palate repair — birth defects such as these can be repaired to improve quality of life
  • Dental implant placement — during surgery, dental implants are placed into the jaw bone to become the foundation for replacement teeth
  • Removal of impacted teeth — wisdom teeth aren’t the only teeth that can become impacted, and oral surgery can remove any problem teeth
  • Sleep apnea treatment — surgical removal of soft tissues at the back of the mouth can treat sleep apnea
  • TMJ disorder treatment — problems with the temporomandibular joint (the jaw) can cause headaches and facial pain, and surgery is an option for severe cases

These are just some of the most common reasons you might need oral surgery. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, speak with a dentist at Accent Dental.
