Dentoalveolar Sugery

What is Dentoalveolar Surgery?

Dentoalveolar surgery is the treatment of diseases of the teeth, soft tissue, and the jawbone.

What are Dentoalveolar Procedures?

The most common dentoalveolar procedure is the extraction of teeth that are either badly decayed or impacted (i.e. wisdom teeth).

Other dentoalveolar procedures include:

• Reshaping the jaw for dentures (preprosthetic surgery)
• Biopsy and removal of lesions
• Controlling oral infections
• Surgical placement of orthodontic appliances (braces)
