At Blue Line Dental, we perform a broad range of oral surgery services in NYC designed to enhance your oral health, improve your quality of life, and minimize discomfort and downtime. For optimal oral health, your teeth, gums, and jaw should work together in harmony. When they don’t, oral surgery may be necessary.
Our team uses state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure the highest precision, safety, and efficacy in every procedure.
Determining whether oral surgery is necessary depends on various factors. Here are some signs that may indicate a need for oral surgery:
1. Persistent Tooth Pain: If you have been experiencing persistent tooth pain or sensitivity, it could indicate an underlying issue such as extensive tooth decay or deep cavities that may require oral surgery.
2. Impacted Teeth: Impacted wisdom teeth and overcrowding of teeth can lead to pain, swelling, and infection. If you are experiencing these symptoms, removing the impacted teeth through oral surgery may be necessary.
3. Tooth Loss: Missing teeth that need replacing may require oral surgery to restore normal function. Dental implants, which involve surgical placement of artificial tooth roots, are a common solution for tooth loss.
4. Jaw Problems: Jaw issues such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) or malocclusion may require oral surgery for correction or realignment.
5. Facial Trauma: In cases of facial trauma resulting in fractures, badly broken teeth, or dislocations of the jaw or other oral structures, oral surgery may be necessary to repair the damage and restore proper function.
6. Bone Loss: Severe bone loss in the jaw may require bone grafting or bone expansion procedures before getting dental implants.
7. Gum disease: If left untreated, gum disease can cause significant damage to the gums and the underlying bone that supports the teeth, resulting in various complications that may require surgical intervention.
If you are experiencing any of these signs or have concerns about your oral health, it is essential to consult with us for an evaluation and treatment recommendation.
Most Common Oral Surgeries Performed at Blue Line Dental
Our skilled team is committed to providing gentle and painless tooth extractions when necessary. Whether it’s a damaged or infected tooth, our staff will ensure that the procedure is performed with utmost care and that you are comfortable throughout the process.
A basic tooth extraction removes a tooth above the gum line. After numbing your mouth, we first use a dental elevator to loosen the tooth in the socket and then remove it with forceps.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth often cause pain, discomfort, and potential oral health issues. We specialize in wisdom teeth removal, using the latest techniques to ensure a smooth and efficient procedure. Trust our team to provide expert care and a quick recovery.
Severe tooth pain or sensitivity? Broken/cracked tooth, or deep cavities? You may need a root canal procedure to save your tooth. Root canal treatments eliminate infection, preserve your natural tooth, relieve pain, and restore oral health.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, dental implants are a permanent method of tooth replacement that feels and looks natural. Once dental implants have time to integrate with your mouth and jaw, they become a permanent part of your mouth’s structure, improving both the aesthetics of your smile and your overall oral health. Regain your smile’s functionality and confidence with our expertise.
Bone Grafting and Expansion
For patients seeking dental implants but lacking sufficient bone structure, we offer bone grafting and expansion procedures. Bone grafts help to strengthen and regenerate areas where the bone has atrophied. With these advanced techniques, we can augment and strengthen the jawbone to create a foundation for successful dental implant placement, restoring your smile and improving oral function.
Intra-Crestal Sinus Lift
We also perform intra-crestal sinus lifts at Blue Line Dental to address insufficient bone volume in the upper jaw. By gently lifting the sinus floor, we increase the sinuses’ height and width, creating a stable foundation for dental implants, which allows patients to regain a complete and healthy smile.
