Oral surgery is a specialty in dentistry that's responsible for treating a wide range of injuries, defects, and conditions. However, oral surgery isn't just isolated to your teeth. It also treats conditions in your head, neck, jaw, and around your face. The most common oral and maxillofacial procedures include wisdom ( and other tooth) extraction, the placement of dental implants, and reconstructive dental procedures.Other procedures and conditions commonly attended to by an oral surgeon include:

  • Dental implants: dental implants are often a solution when a patient is facing tooth loss due to infection or an injury. In many cases, they are used as an alternative to dentures or a dental bridge. Dental implants are tooth root substitutes implanted by Dr. Moretta and anchored to the jawbone to serve as a stabilizer for artificial teeth.
  • Jaw Problems: jaw issues are frequently solved with maxillofacial surgery. Issues that can be solved with your jaw range from uneven jaw growth, improper denture fit, TMJ disorders, and more.
  • Repair for facial injuries: if you've suffered a facial injury, oral and maxillofacial surgery is commonly recommended to help repair fractured bones in your face and jaw.
  • Sleep apnea and snoring: when other alternative methods of treatment aren't successful in eliminating sleep apnea or disruptive snoring, oral surgery can be used to remove soft tissue at the back of your mouth and/or your lower jaw
