Oral surgery is any surgical procedure done in your mouth, on the jaw, or around your mouth. Dentists or oral maxillofacial surgeons perform these procedures. Discussed below are five types of oral surgery and their benefits.
If you have missing teeth and looking for a permanent solution, you should consider getting dental implants. To get them, our dental specialists will surgically embed a titanium implant into your jawbone. Then, a dental crown is placed on it. The main benefit of dental implants is that they look like natural teeth and are durable.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
When wisdom teeth don't erupt properly, they will cause overcrowding or become impacted. This can cause great discomfort and potential oral infections. Therefore, they will have to be removed through an extraction procedure.
Jaw surgery is another common type of oral surgery. It is mostly performed on patients whose jaws aren't properly aligned. During this surgery, the maxilla or mandible is adjusted to fix malocclusions. A jaw surgery also helps correct skeletal misalignment. This helps improve an individual's appearance.
Tooth Extraction Surgery
As its name suggests, this surgery involves extracting teeth. It is a very simple procedure. In most cases, we perform tooth extractions if the tooth is severely damaged or impacted. Keep in mind that tooth extractions are only performed when it is necessary. We do everything to avoid tooth extractions because natural teeth are irreplaceable.
This is a surgery that involves the installation of aesthetic appliances like veneers and dental bridges. In some cases, we have to reshape your dental structure before installing these appliances surgically. The main benefit of prosthodontic treatment is improving your smile and enhancing your appearance. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on the types of oral surgery.

Downtown Seattle Dentist
Summit Dental Care: convenient location in downtown Seattle; strong online website and patient portal (e.g., appointments, dental records); reception staff, hygienist, chairside assistants - competent and professional. Most importantly, there is Summit Dental's Dr. Vu, DDS - a very skilled dental professional who seems to genuinely care about the welfare of his patients. A recent dental crisis/emergency was handled without delay; when a tooth is "making its presence known," one doesn't want to hear, "Let me see if we have any openings..."! Dr. Vu replaced my (now retired) dentist of 20+ years - it has been a wise decision to stay with the practice.

Dentist Downtown Seattle
Dr. Vu is great. He and his staff are all friendly and kind, and I’ve consistently had good experiences at his office. He’s always trying to think of ways to improve patient experience- including offering noise canceling headphones for when you get fillings so you can listen to music or a podcast to distract you from the noise of the drill. Brilliant!

Seattle Family Dentistry
I've been a patient here for 6 years now and Dr. Vu and the team continue to exceed my expectations. They do a great job of listening to you and treat you with the utmost respect. I am so happy here that I keep paying extra for an out-of-Network dental plan. My gum health has improved tremendously and I have reclaimed my smile.

Dr. Vu and the team are like family! They treat my dental needs and make me feel right at home. When I had a dental emergency they cleared out time to make sure I was taken care of. I knocked 2 teeth out in a bike accident and you can’t even tell!! They also make a great point to support the LGBTQ+ community!
