Oral Surgery Procedures
Tooth loss is incredibly common, and dental implants are generally the best way to address it. Dental implants function as artificial tooth roots, providing a safe and secure way to anchor dental prostheses. Not only do dental implants provide a fully functional and aesthetic restoration, but with the right oral hygiene, they can potentially last a lifetime. We are pleased to provide dental implant surgery.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Most people get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early 20s. Wisdom teeth can cause a host of oral health complications and having them removed is extremely common. Our surgeons have ample experience removing wisdom teeth safely and expediently, all while ensuring the patient’s comfort. We recommend having wisdom teeth removed as early as possible to avoid issues.
Our doctors do everything in their power to preserve the natural teeth, but sometimes a tooth becomes damaged or decayed beyond the point of salvage. In these situations, it is usually best to have the tooth extracted and replaced. Our oral surgeons have a long track record of performing tooth extractions while keeping you safe and comfortable throughout the process.
Full Mouth Restoration
Some patients come to us because they have experienced the loss of a significant number of teeth. Our doctors are pleased to provide options for full mouth restoration, resulting in a natural-looking, healthy, and confident smile. We are always happy to talk about the ways in which dental implants can be used to provide full mouth restoration, no matter the extent of your tooth loss.
Exparel® Opioid-Free Option
Our doctors prioritize your comfort and provide a number of options for mitigating pain. We are especially pleased to offer Exparel®, a long-lasting pain management option that helps most patients avoid the need for prescription pain pills.
