Get Your Smile Back in Shape With an Oral Surgery Procedure

When you book an appointment with My Hometown Dentist, you’ve taken the first step toward returning your smile to health. Our team offers several types of oral surgery in-house, saving you the time, money, and headache of traveling to see a specialist. However, if we feel we can’t handle your particular surgery, we’ll give you the name of a trusted specialist in our area. Here are a few oral surgery treatments we offer our patients:

  • Tooth Extractions – If we’re unable to save your tooth, we’ll remove it to help protect the rest of your teeth and gums.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – These third molars can often cause problems when they begin to emerge. We can safely remove them for you.
  • Frenectomies – Extra thick connective tissue in your child’s mouth may prevent them from eating or speaking easily. We can correct the problem with a tongue-tie or lip-tie procedure. Your dentist uses a safe, low-power laser to cut the tissue.
  • Laser Gum Surgery – Your dentist can remove diseased gum tissue and bacteria at the same time with a dental laser. You won’t feel a thing, and you’ll enjoy quick healing time.
  • Bone Grafts – If you need dental implants and your jawbone isn’t strong or thick enough to support them, we’ll recommend a bone graft. During this procedure, your dentist inserts additional bone cells in your jaw to encourage new bone growth.
  • Sinus Lifts – This procedure is a special type of bone graft to make more room for implants in your upper jaw.
  • Ridge Augmentations – When you lose a tooth, the bone in that area can begin to deteriorate, resulting in changes to your facial structure. A ridge augmentation builds up your jaw ridge either for aesthetics or to support dental implants.
  • Dental Implant Placement – We place most implants in-house, making it simple to get your entire implant procedure done in one convenient location.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

There are many reasons you may need an oral surgery procedure. One of the most common is to remove teeth, whether you need to make room for dentures or another restoration or to avoid future dental problems. You may also need gum surgery to repair damaged gums. If you are getting implants, you may need a procedure such as a bone graft or sinus lift to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support them.

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

Your pain level will vary depending on the extent of your surgical procedure, your age, and your overall health. For some procedures, you may feel little or no pain as you recover. For more extensive procedures, you may have some soreness. In any case, we’ll provide guidance to help you minimize pain and soreness.

What can I eat after oral surgery?

​​We recommend that you eat soft foods and liquids for two or three days after your surgery. Yogurt, soup, pudding, ice cream, and protein shakes are all good choices. It’s a good idea to avoid spicy foods, acidic foods, crunchy foods, and tough-to-chew foods for a week or so.
