We usually associate oral care with brushing and drilling, or even the topping of teeth with crowns or braces. What is often overlooked or consciously avoided is the association of good oral care with necessary oral surgery. This is particularly true when a person is in pain or needs the expert surgical care to prepare the mouth for other dental procedures. The Marine Park oral surgery office of Dr. Marc B. Hertz, DDS serves the community by assisting residents with a full range of oral surgery services to ease both their pain and pave the way for better smiles . Our state-of-the-art offices are equipped with the latest in dental technology including operating microscopes and digital radiographs to provide any surgical treatment necessary.
Our Marine Park oral surgery office offers a wide array of surgical services including implant dentistry where our doctor will surgically place a titanium anchor into the jawbone to serve as a root for an artificial replacement tooth. Our doctors often use bone grafts to beef up the amount of bone material available to support an implant in its proper place as well as to help to lift and augment the sinuses. Aside from dental implants oral surgeons perform a great many extractions of both wisdom teeth and any other tooth that must come out to improve the oral health of a patient. Teeth are extracted for a number of reasons including teeth that are too decayed or broken to restore or to alleviate overcrowding in the mouth. Wisdom teeth are often extracted to make room for other erupting teeth, to relieve crowding, or because they are crooked or impacted.
Our Marine Park oral surgery office also performs a procedure called an apicectomy, which is a root end resection that is done when traditional root canal treatment has failed to relieve pain of an infected tooth. Our doctors also remove abscesses and cysts from the mouth. After a surgical procedure the mouth should heal quickly and the inflammation and pain disappear. Oral surgery is generally a painless event with improvements in sedation and surgical technology. Any residual pain after the procedure should be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers. If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity call our office.
