Oral Surgery Torrance
Oral surgery is an essential procedure that can be used to treat a number of dental health conditions. Our specialist for oral surgery in Torrance
may recommend oral surgery for those with third molars, or wisdom teeth, which can often develop problems or increase the risk of problems for adjacent teeth. When there is inadequate room in the jaw for the wisdom teeth, they may push the other teeth out of proper alignment, or they may not fully erupt and become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain or infection and increase the risk of dental decay and gum disease. Removing impacted wisdom teeth or wisdom teeth that are likely to crowd other teeth is often recommended in order to maintain good dental health.
Our Torrance oral surgery
specialist also uses dental surgery for those who are receiving dental implants. Dental implants are a dental restoration that replaces the tooth root of a tooth that has been lost due to trauma, decay or infection. Implants can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures, and suitable candidates must have healthy bone density and must be strong and healthy enough to undergo dental surgery. Good dental hygiene after the procedure is essential to reducing the risk of post-procedure complications.

Dental surgery may also be recommended to treat certain TMJ disorders. If you suffer from TMJ disorders and have been unable to achieve pain relief through lifestyle changes, medications and noninvasive treatments, our expert for oral surgery in Torrance
may recommend certain procedures that can provide significant relief, alleviate your pain and correct specific jaw joint disorders or injuries.
Oral surgery may also be necessary to correct certain congenital problems of the jaw joint, unequal jaw growth, to correct the fit of dentures or for bone or soft tissue grafts to restore areas that have deteriorated due to gum disease or other dental health conditions. It may also be needed before certain orthodontic treatments. Our Torrance oral surgery
expert can explain your options to you as well as the risks and benefits of any procedure.
