Wisdom Tooth ExtractionFind out more about the most common oral surgeries performed in Huntsville.

Has your Huntsville oral surgeon told you that you need surgery now or may need it in the near future? If so, you aren’t the only one. Millions of people have oral surgery each year in America. Learn about the most common oral surgeries and how they can improve your overall health.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

About five million Americans have their wisdom teeth removed each year. Wisdom teeth are the third and last set of molars to come in, and they usually begin to erupt by your late teens or early twenties. While some people are able to keep their wisdom teeth, a majority of the time these molars may cause overcrowding, cavities (decay) or become infected. Therefore, we highly recommend that you have these teeth removed.

Dental Implants

For those with missing teeth, dental implants are one way to permanently replace your teeth. The implant, which looks like a metal screw, is placed into the jawbone of the missing tooth. This implant serves as an anchor from which to hold an abutment, which connects the porcelain crown to the dental implant. Those who opt for implants should be in good oral and general health and have no health problems that could compromise their immune systems. The procedure, including placement, healing and restoration, does take several months to complete; however, in certain cases this process can be expedited. 

There are countless oral surgeries available through your Huntsville oral surgeon. Others include treating jaw-related issues (e.g., advanced cases of TMJ disorders), facial infections, cleft lip and other facial deformities, lesion/growth removal and even sleep apnea. We offer a full range of surgical procedures to improve the health of your mouth.

If you are considering implants or need a wisdom teeth extraction, Dr. S. Clint Hudson would be happy to consult with you regarding your options and recommend the best option available for your specific situation. Call your Huntsville oral surgeon today at (256) 553-1282.
