When you visit our caring dentist and dental team at The Chicago Family Dental Center, we work hard to provide you with the highest level possible of dental care. While we strive to provide conservative treatments when possible, some conditions and situations may require oral surgery. We offer several surgical treatments to help you improve the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Oral surgery in Chicago, Illinois, may include:
- Tooth extraction – In some cases, removing a seriously infected or decayed tooth may be the best option for restoring your oral health. We may also recommend tooth extraction for a severely overcrowded smile.
- Dental implants – Dr. Gary Wegmann works with a local oral surgeon for the placement of the implants. Our dentist then provides the implant restoration.
- Oral or facial trauma repair – Some types of oral or facial trauma require oral surgery for effective repair.
- Jaw surgery – We may suggest jaw surgery in order to correct unequal jaw growth, to improve the fit of dentures, or to treat a TMJ disorder.
Our skilled team will ensure that your oral surgery treatment is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will be glad to outline each step of the treatment and healing process to make certain you feel informed and confident with your treatment choices. We invite you to contact us today to learn more about oral surgery. We are happy to answer all of your questions.
