Oral Surgery Montgomery
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the dental profession’s surgical specialists, and the doctors at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates in Montgomery, Alabama, offer an impressive array of training and expertise.
Life after Facial Trauma
Our oral surgeons are uniquely qualified to rebuild and restore facial structures that have suffered damage. Facial trauma may include dental damage, including tooth loss, or injury to facial bones and soft tissues. Our oral surgeons are on staff at local hospitals and can provide emergency care.
Dental Implants for Advanced Teeth Replacement
When teeth are lost or require extraction, the best option to restore the smile and preserve oral health is dental implants. The small metal posts are made from biocompatible titanium, which the jawbone fuses to while healing, and they can help restore the lost tooth’s original form and function.
Are Wisdom Teeth Bothering You?
Wisdom tooth impaction (failure to fully erupt) can occur from the obstruction of too many teeth on limited surface area, and cause severe pain and discomfort. Wisdom tooth extraction is often required to restore peace, tranquility, and balance to your oral health.
Jawbone Reinforcement with Bone Grafting
Tooth loss, injury, or a congenital jaw defect can lead to a weak, insufficient jawbone. For patients seeking to improve their physical appearance, promote better function, or prepare for dental implant placement, bone grafting can help fortify the jawbone.
Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Surgery)
When jawbones and teeth are out of alignment then your oral surgeon, orthodontist, and general dentist may combine jaw surgery and orthodontic treatment, known as orthognathic surgery. Though the procedure is often performed on children patients of all ages can benefit from orthognathic surgery.
Stop Snoring, Treat Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea describes a condition where a patient repeatedly stops breathing in his sleep. The cycles deprive patients of vital deep sleep, and in extreme cases, oral surgery is required to widen the space between jaws, correct abnormal oral tissues, and prevent airway blockage.
Single Tooth Extraction
Aside from wisdom teeth, we also perform single tooth extractions for a severely damaged tooth that can no longer function properly, or a tooth infected with decay that it can no longer be saved. In such cases, extracting and replacing the tooth is preferable to trying, and failing, to restore it.
Restore Your Oral Health with Endodontic Surgery
If root canal therapy is unable to restore health to an infected tooth, your doctor may recommend endodontic surgery. Apicoectomy, or a root-end resection, is the commonly performed type of endodontic surgery. During the procedure, the root canal will be accessed through the gum tissue.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Advanced gum recession due to periodontal disease may require a soft tissue graft. This procedure involves removing soft tissue from another area of the mouth and transplanting it to the affected area, minimizing sensitivity and guarding against tooth loss caused by advanced gum disease.
I wish to thank publically Dr. Ingalls and his staff for "going the extra mile" and not only providing great dental care but also helping a fellow human being out of compassion and caring. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you did for my family member.Rodney H.
