Dr Shwetha’s Clinic
Dental surgery is a general term that refers to any type of surgical procedure that is performed in the mouth or on the teeth. Dental surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including damaged or missing teeth, gum disease, and oral cancer.
There are many different types of dental surgery, including extractions, root canals, dental implants, and gum surgery. An extraction is a dental surgery that is used to remove a tooth from the mouth. Extractions may be necessary due to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma to the tooth.
A root canal is a dental surgery that is used to treat infected or damaged teeth. During a root canal, the dental professional will remove the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth and fill the pulp chamber and root canals with a special filling material.
Dental implants are a type of dental surgery that is used to replace missing teeth. During the procedure, a small titanium post is placed in the jawbone, and a custom-made crown is attached to the post to replace the missing tooth. Gum surgery is a type of dental surgery that is used to treat advanced gum disease or to correct abnormalities in the gum tissue. Gum surgery may involve the removal of infected or damaged tissue, the smoothing of the root surface, or the repositioning of the gum tissue.
If you are in need of dental surgery, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Shwetha’s dental clinic at IRIS Diagnostics to discuss your treatment options and determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
