If you require oral surgery to extract a damaged or infected tooth or remove wisdom teeth, you can feel confident in the skills of our dentists at myDental.

Our Round Rock oral surgery department covers a wide range of procedures including wisdom tooth removal, implants, jaw surgery, bone grafting, oral pathology, and TMJ disorder-related treatments.

These procedures address issues related to teeth, jaws, gums, and other oral structures, aiming to improve oral health, function, and aesthetics. It’s important to consult with an oral surgeon to determine the specific procedures needed for individual cases.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction may be necessary for several reasons. An extraction is commonly performed when a tooth is impacted or when teeth need to be removed prior to orthodontic procedures (such as wisdom teeth removal in Austin).

You may need to have a tooth removed if it is broken, cracked, or decayed beyond repair, or when a tooth is so badly positioned that straightening is impossible. Tooth extraction may be required when root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not an option.

Prior to any extraction procedure, our dentists will sedate you with nitrous oxide to help make the procedure more comfortable. With modern dental methods, you may only experience minor discomfort and bleeding.

Anytime you have a tooth removed (other than for orthodontic reasons), we will recommend a restorative procedure to replace it, such as a crown, bridge, or dental implant. Replacing a tooth that has been extracted is important for restoring function and your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implant placement is a popular procedure performed by Austin oral surgeons. It’s a great solution for tooth replacement and also provides a stable foundation for prosthetics. It’s important to receive dental implants to prevent bone loss.

After your initial consultation with an oral surgeon in Austin TX, you’ll be put under local anesthesia and the oral surgeon will drill a hole in the jawbone. The implants are inserted into the hole and over time becomes integrated with the bone.

After the gums have healed around the abutment, impressions are taken to create a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture that will be attached to the implant. The prosthetic is designed to match the appearance and function of natural teeth, providing a seamless and comfortable restoration.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic surgery is performed to address irregularities with the jaw that impact bite function and facial aesthetics. The process begins by evaluating your jaw alignment and facial proportions. The use of imaging aids in planning your treatment.

Corrective jaw surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. The surgeon makes incisions inside the mouth to access the jawbones, minimizing visible scarring.

Once the surgery is complete you may have to remain in the hospital for a few days while you heal and braces or clear aligners may be necessary to restore full function of your teeth.
