Common Types of Oral Surgery
Gum disease is an infection in the mouth that causes inflammation and attacks the gums, tissues, ligaments, and roots of teeth responsible for holding them in place. The condition typically results from an accumulation of plaque and tartar, but other factors like genetics, diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, medication use, systemic diseases such as diabetes, and more can also contribute to its development.
Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria and toxins that forms on and below the gum line, is the primary cause of gum disease. This common but serious condition can negatively impact both oral health and overall wellness. Advanced periodontitis, the severe form of gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss.
Common Types of Oral Surgery
Our practice provides a range of oral surgical procedures, with varying degrees of frequency. Commonly, we perform root canal treatments and tooth extractions, as well as placement of different types of dental implants. Additionally, we specialize in removing impacted wisdom teeth and performing gum surgeries, such as gum grafting, to assist those suffering from gum disease. In cases of trauma to the mouth, we offer restorative surgeries to repair affected areas. For patients who desire dental implants but lack adequate bone, we provide bone grafts and sinus lifts to enable successful surgical placement.

During your consultation, Dr. Baqai may provide instructions to prepare for your surgery, which may include taking medications, such as antibiotics or sedatives, in advance. Additionally, it is recommended to ensure a clean home environment for a smooth recovery, and you may be advised to sleep at an incline for optimal healing.
