Oral Surgery: Going Under
Together, your teeth and gums combine to form a complex system. Over time, there are a variety of issues that can arise in your mouth. Some of these problems can be easily treated by following proper hygiene. Unfortunately, there are other issues that require surgery to fix.
Whether you have impacted teeth or a jaw-related problem, our team helps you live a life free from pain. From the moment you walk in the door until you are fully recovered, we make sure that you are in good hands. Our caring and professional staff completes your procedure and follows the right treatment plan to help you recover.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common oral procedures that we perform is the removal of wisdom teeth. These are your third set of molars, and they are the last teeth to develop. In most cases, your jaw is not large enough to allow room for them in your mouth. Without removal, the wisdom teeth become impacted, and can cause swelling, pain, infection of the gum tissue, and damage to your nearby teeth and gums.
This procedure can be performed in one day, depending on your situation. Most patients feel back to normal within several days to a week, and we do everything we can to make you comfortable while you heal.
Restorative Dental Implants
Don’t let a missing tooth take away your ability to smile. Whether you lost your teeth due to an accident or infection, we have the right solution for you. Dental implants are an ideal option for those with missing teeth. They are available as an alternative to bridges and dentures.
With dental implants, you receive a substitute for your tooth root. This implant is surgically anchored into place at your jawbone. Due to the complex nature related to this procedure, you must have the right bone level and density, and you must not be prone to infection. Please note that following proper oral hygiene is essential to the success of this procedure.
