If you suffer from serious oral health problems that can only be resolved surgically, we offer a range of oral surgery options that can help you restore your dental health and your beautiful smile.
For any surgical procedure, a consultation to discuss the procedure and sedation options will be scheduled prior to treatment. There are several different sedation options available to improve your comfort level through the procedure.
Some of our most common oral surgery procedures include:
- Wisdom Tooth Removal
- Gum surgery
- Oral Biopsies
Impacted Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are the last teeth to become fully developed. When the wisdom teeth do begin to emerge, they often become impacted—trapped beneath the gums—because there is little room for them to grow in properly.
In cases such as this, we may need to perform a surgical procedure to extract these teeth before they cause serious pain and damage to surrounding teeth.
In cases of intermediate to advanced gum disease, we may recommend surgical procedures to halt and to reverse damage. This may consist of one or both of the following procedures:
Gum Surgery — In this procedure, the gums are gently pushed back so the root of the tooth can be thoroughly cleaned and surfaced to prevent further damage.
Bone Grafting — In this procedure, damaged and depleted jawbones can be reinforced and strengthened using bone graft procedures.
Gum Grafting — In this procedure, areas of damaged and receded gum tissue can be replaced using gum graft procedures.
To learn more about our surgical and non-surgical gum treatments, see our Gum Treatment page.
A thorough inspection of the oral cavity is a part of our comprehensive and recall examinations. A biopsy may be necessary for abnormal oral tissue spots, lumps, and bumps that cannot be diagnosed on the basis of the history and clinical findings alone. A biopsy procedure will determine the cause of the abnormal oral tissue by providing a tissue sample to a medical or dental pathologist for microscopic analysis.
