Exceptional surgical care services for a healthy mouth

Most dental offices don’t have the expertise to perform oral surgical services. These practices refer patients to other medical practitioners, which can be time-consuming. Our office has the team and technology to offer oral surgery services under one roof. When you need complex dental work, we don’t have to refer you to someone unfamiliar with your smile.

Following are the oral surgical services you can enjoy in our office.

Dental implant surgery

Dental implants provide a solid foundation to anchor replacement teeth that feel, look, and function like natural teeth. Your implant journey begins with using digital X-rays and 3D imaging to plan your treatment. This planning helps us establish your jawbone health and identify the precise location to place an implant. 

If all is set, we incise your gums and drill a small hole in your bone to place a titanium stud. Then, we clean and suture the surgical site to begin the healing process. Once healing and fusion occur, we restore your implants with a natural-looking crown, denture, or bridge. 

Dental implants change your life dramatically. You regain your ability to speak, eat, and laugh with confidence because your teeth appear beautiful and natural. Dental implants also preserve your facial contours to keep your youthful appearance.

Surgical tooth extraction

Removing a tooth that has broken through the gums requires a simple extraction. Here, we use forceps and an elevator to pull out your tooth from its socket. However, you need a surgical extraction when your tooth is broken at the gum line level or impacted (trapped) beneath your gums.

We perform dental surgical extraction after administering local (sometimes general) anesthesia to reduce discomfort during treatment. Then, your dentist incises your gums to access the tooth. If your tooth is embedded in the jawbone, we’ll remove some bone and break the tooth into pieces for easier removal. After removing all the fragments, we clean and suture the wound to begin the healing process. 

This surgery doesn’t require an overnight stay. You’ll recover at home, but we’ll give post-operative care and medication to manage pain, swelling, and other discomfort.
