There are many reasons why you or a member of your family may need dental surgery. Learn more about the various procedures we perform below as well as what to do after your surgery.
Pssst… If you’ve already had dental surgery and are looking for the post-procedure instructions, you’ll find them here.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Your third molars are the last teeth to develop and typically erupt during the teen or young adult years. If you do not have enough room in your mouth to accommodate them, it can cause problems. In such scenarios, we have to remove your wisdom teeth to prevent potential complications in the future.
While we offer a variety of restorative methods like fillings and crowns, teeth may sometimes be too badly damaged to repair or save. If that’s the case, we will extract the tooth. Local anesthesia will be given in order to make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
Once you lose one or more teeth, the surrounding structure of your jawbone begins to shrink. Bone grafting is used to prepare a site for your dental implants or prosthesis that replace your missing teeth and help you achieve a functional and aesthetically pleasing result.
Soft Tissue Grafting
If you have gum recession that has left the root of a tooth exposed, then you will benefit from soft tissue grafting. The graft covers and protects the root of your tooth, preventing further deterioration of the gums while improving the appearance of your smile.
