About Oral Surgery
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, defects, injuries, and deformities of the jaws and facial region. From the extraction of teeth and placement of dental implants to gum surgery, we offer a wide range of surgical services.
While it is always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where this is not possible. Sometimes as a result of decay, gum disease or injury such as those from sports, motor vehicle accidents, or work related mishaps, a tooth may be too badly damaged and will need to be removed by the dentist.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, a third set of molars, grow in some people between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth are not always functional, and can crowd the mouth or create problems for your oral hygiene. In these cases, your dentist may recommend having them extracted to help preserve the overall health of your mouth.
Gum surgery may be required when gum disease has reached advanced stages, when gum tissue has over grown a tooth, or when you appear to have a gummy smile. In each situation the procedure differs but with the help of dental laser this is a quick and pain-free procedure that heals quickly afterwards.
Surgically placed dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth and can address a number of oral health issues while leaving you with a natural-looking, functional smile.
