Oral Surgery Services
Oral surgery encompasses procedures treating a wide array of diseases, injuries, and defects in the oral cavity. It is an internationally recognized medical specialty.
Our surgeons are knowledgeable and have received extensive training and education. We practice the highest standards of care and we also utilize cutting edge medical technology for our patients.
Some of the many procedures that fall under the category of oral surgery are removal of impacted teeth, insertion of dental implants, and cosmetic surgeries. We are also able to diagnose and treat certain conditions through oral surgery.
Sometimes there simply isn’t enough bone for an implant, so in some cases we need to add bone in order to make sure the implant can be strongly held in place.
A bone graft may be accompanied by a Maxillary Sinus Lift, which is when the space for the implant is created by pushing up the sinus and hold it up with the bone graft to ensure space for the future implant. Thankfully, with the use of 3D radiograph we can plan the surgery properly
Any surgery can be scary, but thankfully with the use of 3D radiographs, we can properly plan the most efficient way to remove an infected tooth; which in turn minimizes the amount of time you need to be in the chair to get the surgery done. Whenever a tooth’s integrity is too greatly compromised an extraction may be necessary. Extreme circumstances that could lead to the extraction of a tooth include:
- Large Caries
- Severe Periodontitis
- Infections in the Bone (i.e. Cyst, Abscess)
Do you feel like your tongue has limited mobility? Maybe some words and sounds are hard to pronounce? You may have some extra tissue holding down your tongue from freely moving around. If this is the case, then we can easily and quickly remove that extra tissue so you can have more control of your tongue!
One of the best solutions for missing teeth are implants. With a strong medical grade titanium placed in the bone, we can support a new crown, bridge, or denture for you. Thanks to the latest in digital dentistry, we are proud to say that all our implant can be placed with 3D printed surgical guides. In other words we can calculate the ideal placement of your implant on the computer before we place it in your mouth.
Have you noticed extra bone growing and sticking out of random places in your mouth? Some people commonly have extra bone growing on the palate or under the tongue with no worries, but in rare circumstances that extra bone could start interfering with speech patterns or eating patterns. When this starts to happens, we can remove that extra bone to return normal speech and eating again.
