Common Reasons for Oral Surgery

Oral surgery addresses a range of dental health issues, from restoring function to enhancing aesthetics. Common reasons include:

  • Tooth Loss: Implants provide a durable, natural-looking solution.
  • Impacted Teeth: Removal of teeth that haven't erupted properly, often wisdom teeth.
  • Jaw-Related Problems: Correction of jaw irregularities affecting speech, chewing, and overall health.
  • Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease treatments to restore gum health.
  • Dental Injuries: Repair of facial trauma and tooth damage.

Sedation Options for Patient Comfort

Sedation dentistry plays a crucial role in ensuring patient comfort during oral surgery. Options include:

  • Laughing Gas: Eases anxiety with quick recovery.
  • Oral Sedation: Pills taken before the procedure to induce relaxation.
  • IV Sedation: Directly administered for deeper sedation, tailored to patient needs.
  • General Anesthesia: For complex surgeries, making patients completely unconscious.

Our Oral Surgery Services

Implant Placement

Dental implants represent the gold standard in tooth replacement technology, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth. Our implant placement procedures are performed with precision and care, ensuring a foundation that mimics the strength and stability of natural teeth.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is often required when there's insufficient bone height in the upper jaw or when the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implant placement. This procedure raises the sinus floor to allow for the placement of bone grafts, creating a suitable environment for implants.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafting is essential for patients with bone loss who wish to receive dental implants. By transplanting bone tissue, we can enhance the jawbone's density, providing a solid foundation for implant placement and improving facial aesthetics.

Surgical Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is beyond saving, surgical extraction becomes necessary. Our team performs surgical tooth extractions with the utmost precision, prioritizing patient comfort and discussing tooth replacement options to preserve the integrity of your smile.

Periodontal Surgery

For advanced gum disease that cannot be treated with non-surgical methods, periodontal surgery may be recommended. Our procedures aim to restore gum health, addressing issues such as deep pockets and tissue damage to prevent tooth loss.

Biopsies

Oral biopsies are critical for diagnosing conditions affecting the mouth's soft tissues. Our skilled surgeons perform biopsies with minimal discomfort, ensuring accurate diagnoses and appropriate treatment plans.
