Our skilled dentists may recommend oral surgery if your smile and oral function cannot be restored with more conservative treatments. The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function, health and appearance of your teeth, supporting oral structures and jaw by correcting pre-existing conditions or repairing damage to a specific area, such as that caused by severe decay and infection, tooth loss, impacted teeth, TMJ disorders or uneven jaw growth, or lost gum or bone tissue.
Some common types of oral surgery include:
- Tooth extraction
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery
- Bone grafting
- Dental implant placement
- Soft tissue grafting (gum grafting)
When our dentists and team provide any surgical procedure we make every effort to ensure that it is as conservative and minimally invasive as possible. Following your procedure we provide post-op instructions and work with you to ensure that you heal properly and without complications. Our dentists may also coordinate with trusted dental specialists to ensure that you receive the high-quality treatments that you need and deserve.
