Need a dental implant, a wisdom tooth removed, looking for root canal therapy? Maybe you have TMJ. Trust our team of skilled oral surgeons on staff who can help you with any of these dental procedures.
Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are dental specialists who receive additional training upon completing their dental degree to specialize in this area. The additional six years of training allows them to develop a deep understanding of issues relating to teeth and the jaw, as well as diagnose and treat a wide variety of dental issues.
What Kinds of Services Does Your Oral Surgeon Provide?
Your trusted oral surgeon in Greenville, SC will be able to assist you with solving some of the most challenging and painful oral issues, which include:
Impacted teeth occur most often in patients whose wisdom teeth are starting to emerge and there isn’t enough room in the jaw to allow them to emerge successfully. When this happens, the tooth becomes trapped, or impacted, within the gum line and will need dental surgery to remove.
If left untreated, these impacted wisdom teeth can result in extreme pain, swelling, and infection in the gums and surrounding tissue. It is essential that any impacted teeth be removed as quickly as possible. Otherwise, the patient runs the risk of causing damage to nearby gums, teeth, and even bone.
However, it’s important to note that while most impacted teeth are the result of trapped wisdom teeth, this may not always be the case. If you suspect that you have an impacted tooth, contact your trusted oral surgeon in Greenville, SC for a checkup as soon as possible. The gentle and experienced staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care are here to help relieve you from any pain or infection you’re experiencing by resolving the issue effectively and efficiently.
Solving Jaw-Related Problems
Some patients may develop unequal jaw growth, where the upper and lower jaws don’t grow properly and can cause issues with speaking, breathing, eating and swallowing. In some cases, these problems can be solved with orthodontic appliances such as braces, but more serious problems will require oral surgery in order to move all or specific parts of the upper or lower jaw.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)
Patients who experience dysfunction of the TMJ, which is a small joint near the front of the ear where the lower jaw and skull meet, may experience headaches and facial pain as a result. While some TMJ patients benefit from physical therapy and medication, advanced cases may require an oral surgeon to perform joint surgery.

to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
