Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, which are the third molars in the back of your mouth, will likely cause problems as a person ages. In many instances, these teeth can become misaligned, painful and sometimes cause infection. The best time for removing wisdom teeth is typically between the ages of 15 to 25; however, removal of the wisdom teeth is an important part of preventative dentistry at any age.

Dental Implants

There are several options available for patients who are missing permanent teeth. A dental implant is one option. Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures or using adjacent teeth as anchors as with fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that our oral surgeons surgically place in the jawbone.

Oral Cancer

For a variety of reasons, tumors and cysts may form in the bone or the soft tissue of the mouth. While some of these tumors and cysts are harmless, others can impact your health, as well as the proper functioning of surrounding tissues. In most cases, the tumor or cyst should be removed surgically.

Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Ridge deformities can result from tooth extractions. This can leave individuals with inadequate bone for either an aesthetic bridge or dental implant for tooth replacement. Bone grafting can be done at the time of tooth removal to help preserve the bone in preparation for tooth replacement. Grafting also can be done in an area of pre-existing bone deficiency.

IV Sedation

IV Sedation

IV Sedation

It is natural to be anxious about oral surgery. For any treatment performed at our office, sedation can be provided to patients. In most instances, this sedation is administered through an I.V. while your vital signs are monitored. Patients fall asleep during this process as they relax and the medication takes effect. The benefit of I.V. sedation is you will not remember the surgery.
