We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Do I Need Oral Surgery?
Oral maxillofacial surgery is often recommended by your dentist if you have injured your mouth, face, or jaw or if you have some condition or disease that prevents your mouth from functioning well. The field of oral surgery includes procedures such as corrective jaw surgery, which is also called orthognathic surgery. Oral and maxillofacial surgery also includes procedures such as wisdom teeth removal, cleft palate correction, and oral cancer treatment.
Look no further if your dentist refers you to an oral surgeon, and you have been thinking, “Where can I undergo dental surgery near me?” We will schedule a consultation for you with one of our board-certified oral surgeons.
What Are Dental Surgery Services?
We understand that you want to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. Sometimes, it’s necessary to remove teeth that are extensively decayed, blocking other teeth, or pushing your bite out of alignment. Pulling teeth may also be an important preparatory step for orthodontics, dental implants, dentures, and other dental appliances. Your tooth extraction cost will be affected by the condition of your tooth, its location, and your dental insurance.
Oral Cancer Diagnosis
We understand that oral cancer detection may cause fear and uncertainty. The good news is that oral cancer is treatable, especially if the disease is diagnosed and treated in the early stages. To improve the potential oral cancer prognosis, many dentists perform routine oral cancer screenings during semi-annual check-ups. If your dentist observes unusual lesions, lumps or thick or rough patches of the tissue in your mouth, you may be referred to an oral surgeon for a biopsy and treatment.
Oral pathology is the treatment of diseases and defects affecting the mouth, its salivary glands, the jaw and other associated areas. Our highly trained oral surgeons are experienced in treating these pathological conditions, from common canker sores to more complicated oral cancers. If you have an unusual lesion or growth, call our office for a consultation.
Undergoing tooth extractions and oral pathology treatment is often easier when sedation is used. Our sedation services range from medications that help you relax to IV sedation. Even while under sedation, you’ll remain awake during your procedure. Your oral surgeon will discuss your sedation options prior to treatment, but you can also call us to learn more.
A sinus lift, also called sinus augmentation, is an important step in many upper jaw dental implant procedures. During the sinus lift, the membrane of the maxillary sinuses is moved upward and bone is added to the top of the upper jawbone. This added bone material provides the jawbone with the height needed to support a dental implant.
In dentistry, platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a new option to help foster healing after oral surgery. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood during maxillofacial surgery, and when it’s applied to tooth sockets, dental implants, or surgical wounds, it improves tissue and bone regeneration. It is particularly helpful for promoting healing in aging patients who may otherwise have difficulty healing. Oral surgeons in our practice can use PRP during jaw surgery, periodontal therapy, tooth extractions, and other procedures.
