When you hear the word surgery, you picture an operating room with a bunch of lights and people standing around wearing masks.

There are also other types of surgeries that do not require this type of setting. Our dental office is equipped to help people with facial surgery that need treatment. It is a safe and effective way to perform different procedures that offers many advantages.

Types of Surgeries

Like any type of medical procedure, there are some types of facial surgeries that are more common than others. Many people may not even think of some of these procedures as a surgery. The most common type of facial surgery we perform is a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is necessary when for diseased teeth, impacted teeth and teeth that are broken and chipped. This is a procedure done with local anesthesia in our office.

Some of the less common types of surgery that we do can help with health and cosmetic issues.

Jaw correction surgery – This type of surgery can help a misaligned bite that orthodontics could not correct.
Cleft Lip – Repairing a cleft lip is one of the most rewarding types of facial surgery. It not only helps a person physically, it helps them emotionally as they become more confident about their appearance.

Why This Makes Sense

Some people may think that the only way to perform facial surgeries is in an operating room. What they do not realize is that many of the surgical procedures that we can do are much simpler in our office setting. Performing these procedures in our office allows for shorter recovery times, are less invasive and are just as safe. Most importantly, they are more cost effective.

There is no reason to fear facial surgeries done in our office. Instead, you can embrace how they can help you.
