What Is Oral Surgery? 

Oral surgery refers to the treatment of dental conditions that require surgical intervention. Some oral surgeries may be necessary to prepare for more extensive treatments or restorations. Our dentists regularly perform or can provide referrals for: 

Tooth Extractions

Whenever possible, our doctors will do everything they can to maintain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. However, sometimes tooth extractions are the only possible course of action. For example, there may be too much damage present, extremely loose teeth that cannot be saved with a bone graft, or severe infection. 

Wisdom Tooth Removal 

One of the most common types of oral surgery is wisdom tooth removal. This procedure is often a preventative measure, as wisdom teeth can erupt improperly and cause extensive damage to surrounding teeth. The third molars can cause infection, pain, and misalignment, and we may recommend removal after they erupt if they are causing crowding or other issues. We can provide careful, precise removal with little to no discomfort. 

Dental Implants 

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace lost tooth roots. They are used in conjunction with crowns, bridges, and dentures to complete your smile. Your surgeon will first place a dental implant into your jawbone. Once the implant fuses with the bone tissue, it serves as your foundation for a permanent restoration. Due to their secure placement, dental implants are a more stable alternative to traditional dentures. Our doctors work with skilled surgeons for the placement and then provide restorations once healing is complete.

Our dentists will provide you with dignified, professional care so that full function and health is restored to your smile. 

Bone Grafting 

The prolonged absence of one or more teeth may lead to a loss of bone tissue in the jaw over time. Bone grafting may be recommended to provide the necessary foundation for dental implants. The graft can consist of your own tissue, or resourced from elsewhere such as bovine or synthetic materials. Once the grafted material has fused with the existing bone, patients can typically receive dental implants. 

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a type of bone grafting procedure that adds tissue to your upper jaw. This procedure is often needed when bone loss or periodontal disease has caused deterioration, making it impossible to place implants without disturbing the soft tissues of the sinuses. 

Other Issues

While we offer a wide array of oral surgery services, patients who are suffering from impacted teeth or facial trauma, or are in need of implant surgery or related procedures will need to be referred to a specialist. We can determine the best course of action for your condition and ensure that you receive the proper treatment whether that be with one of our doctors or another trusted professional in the area.
