We’ll Make Your Dental Surgery a Stress-Free Experience

Because many patients feel anxious about surgery, your dentists will make sure you feel comfortable every step of the way. They’ll take time to explain why a treatment is necessary. Plus, you can feel confident about the results. In addition to their expertise, they use technology, such as digital X-rays and 3-D scanners, for precise planning. If you need help remaining calm, sedation options are available. We can even bring in an anesthesiologist to administer general anesthesia for more complex treatments.

We offer these surgical procedures:

  • Teeth ExtractionRemoving a tooth might be needed if healthy teeth are at risk. Extraction may also be necessary to make room for dentures or full-arch implants.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – These third molars can cause problems in your smile. We’ll remove them before they impact the health of other teeth.
  • Bone Grafting – If you have lost bone in your jaw, this procedure will restore your jaw strength. It will create a strong foundation for implant placement.
  • Sinus Lift – If you are getting implants in your upper jaw, we can raise the sinus ridge to make room for them.
  • Ridge Augmentation – We’ll reshape your gums and jaw to prepare for the placement of dental implants or just to improve your appearance.
  • Gum Grafting – We can restore your gumline using tissue from your mouth or a donor. A graft restores your gums’ healthy appearance and protects you from tooth loss.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

There are several circumstances that might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Likewise, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they emerge and need to be extracted. Other procedures like bone grafts, sinus lifts, and ridge augmentations prepare for treatments such as dental implants. Gum grafts will repair receded gums and help them heal properly.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

You should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours after your surgery. Doing so could cause problems that prolong your healing. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days.

What can I eat after oral surgery?

Sticking to soft foods for a few days following an extraction is best. Good choices include eggs, pudding, yogurt, and similar foods. Avoid temperature extremes, acidic foods, spicy foods, and sugary and/or acidic beverages. Stick with water, milk, and unsweetened tea. You should also avoid drinking through a straw since it can damage your extraction site.
