What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery might sound intimidating, but it's a specialized field of dentistry aimed at addressing more complex dental issues that require surgical intervention. If you face concerns beyond routine dental procedures, oral surgery might be the solution you need.

What issues does oral surgery address?

Oral surgery covers a range of procedures that address various issues, such as:

Tooth extraction

When a tooth is severely damaged or impacted, oral surgery is often necessary for safe removal. Wisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure performed by the Pure Smiles oral surgeons.

Dental implants

If you're missing a tooth or several teeth, oral surgery can involve the placement of dental implants to restore your smile's function and aesthetics.

Corrective jaw surgery

Also known as orthognathic surgery, this type of surgery corrects misaligned jaws, which can improve your bite, speech, and overall facial symmetry.

Facial trauma

At Pure Smiles, oral surgeons are equipped to repair facial injuries resulting from accidents or trauma, ensuring both functional and aesthetic recovery.


If you have suspicious growths or abnormalities in your mouth, oral surgery might be required to remove and analyze them for potential diseases.

After Dr. Shahbazi evaluates your oral health, she can determine the type of oral surgery needed to improve your oral health.

Is sedation recommended for oral surgery?

While not all oral surgery procedures require sedation, it’s often recommended for more complex or invasive surgeries. Sedation dentistry can help alleviate anxiety, making the procedure more comfortable for you. 

The level of sedation can vary, from mild sedation, where you remain conscious but relaxed, to deeper sedation, where you're barely aware of the procedure. Dr. Shahbazi discusses your sedation options and recommends the most suitable approach based on the procedure's complexity and your comfort level.

What are the benefits of oral surgery?

Choosing oral surgery offers several benefits, including:

  • Improved oral health
  • Enhanced appearance
  • Functional restoration
  • Pain relief 
  • Long-term solutions

If you're facing dental issues that require more than routine care, don't hesitate to reach out to Pure Smiles. Dr. Shahbazi and the team can assess your situation, recommend the appropriate procedure, and guide you through the process, ensuring your oral health is restored and enhanced.
