Oral Surgery

Is your smile important to you? Oral surgery focuses on treating your teeth, gums, and mouth tissues. Your smile is very important to us and we provide peace of mind.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafts are used to repair a damaged or infected jawbone. The process includes filling the receding jawbone with extra bone material, before getting dental implants. Since dental implants are anchored into your jawbone, your jawbone must be strong and healthy to provide the proper support.

Types of Bone Grafts

  • Autograft
  • Bone is harvested elsewhere on the patient’s body (i.e. hip, knee)
  • Regenerates over time because it has living cells
  • Allograft
  • Bone harvested from a cadaver
  • Does not regenerate on its own
  • Acts as a framework
  • Allograft
  • Bone harvested from an animal (i.e. cow)
  • Does not regenerate on its own
  • Acts as a framework

Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)

Root canals occur when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and tissues located in the center of your tooth. When it becomes infected, you may experience sharp pain, tooth sensitivity, and gum tenderness.

As you undergo a root canal, we remove the infected pulp inits entirety. The canal will be cleansed and sealed with gutta percha—a rubber-like material. We always ensure that you are provided with every safety measure so you can have a comfortable dental experience.

Emergency Extractions

You may need an emergency tooth extraction if you have impacted teeth or wisdom teeth causing sharp pain. If the pain is unbearable, we will examine your mouth and determine if a surgical extraction is right for you. An emergency extraction is needed if you have teeth that are located beneath the gums. The gum tissue will be minimally cut to expose the tooth. Then, the tooth will be extracted to alleviate your pain and discomfort.
