Dentoalveolar surgery is at the very core of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Procedures can range from simple extractions to extremely complex procedures and often a combination of procedures requiring extraction, modification to the bone, and/or modification of the gum tissue surrounding the surgical site.
Dentoalveolar procedures may include a combination of the following:
- Partial or full tooth extraction
- Removal of bone material
- Reshaping of bone material
- Soft tissue removal
- Soft tissue repair
