Maintain a Functional Bite With Surgical Dental Procedures

Your dentist will only recommend oral surgery if necessary. You may need this type of procedure to stop an infection from spreading or to prepare you for other procedures. The process begins with a thorough exam to assess your existing dental concerns. If another treatment can save your smile, such as a root canal to treat an infection, your dentist will recommend that instead.

If you do need surgery, you’ll benefit from not having to visit an outside oral surgeon. You can come right here for:

  • Tooth Extractions – An extraction can prevent a diseased or damaged tooth from affecting other teeth. Your dentist will remove the tooth. Then, they will work with you on replacement options after you’ve had a chance to heal.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal Wisdom teeth can lead to overcrowding, increased risk of infections, and other issues. Your dentist will remove these third molars and help you avoid future complications.
  • Frenectomies – A frenectomy will free your child’s tongue- or lip-tie. Our laser technology means the procedure will go quickly and comfortably.
  • Laser Gum Surgery – This  minimally invasive procedure targets and removes infected gum tissue. You’ll enjoy better gum health and long-term oral health. You’ll also heal quickly and comfortably since the laser seals your tissue without sutures.
  • Bone Grafts – If you’ve experienced bone loss in your jaw, a bone graft can rebuild it. Typically, this procedure is performed in preparation for dental implants. Your dentist uses bone grafting material to encourage new growth in your jaw.
  • Sinus Lifts – A sinus lift will make room for implants in your upper jaw. Your dentist will lift the sinus area and add bone grafting material.
  • Ridge Augmentation – Uneven or insufficient gum and bone tissue can make it difficult to achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile. Ridge augmentation rebuilds the natural contours of your jaw. It also prepares your mouth for dental implants or other restorative treatments.

On the day of your surgery, our team will ensure you feel completely at ease. Sedation is available if you’d like helping remaining relaxed and calm. Afterward, you’ll receive instructions for helping the healing process and protecting the surgical area.
