Surgical Treatment for Your Oral Health

Oral surgery is the diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws. While routine dental care, along with brushing and flossing, can help protect your smile, unexpected issues can arise.

Extensive tooth damage or decay, advanced periodontal (gum) disease and traumatic injuries can leave you in need of surgical intervention. These dental conditions cannot improve on their own and are too advanced for other, less invasive treatments.

If we are recommending oral surgery, we will make sure that you are fully informed about your options and we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan. We will also explain each step of the procedure to you.

We also offer oral sedation to help you feel more comfortable during your procedure.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. A dentist can place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and restore your smile. A dental implant, in combination with a dental prosthetic such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.

Bone Grafts

If you need a dental implant but don't have adequate jaw bone density, a bone graft may help. When a tooth is missing, the jaw bone can begin to break down. A bone graft is a procedure that is used to increase the amount of bone in a certain part of the jaw where it has deteriorated so it can support the implant.

Tooth Extractions

While we always prefer to preserve a natural tooth, there are some cases where extraction may be required. If a tooth is too badly damaged due to decay, gum disease, or injury, your dentist may recommend removing the tooth to prevent further oral health issues and relieve pain.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the typical adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are poorly positioned, causing pain, or resulting in problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.


The frenum connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gums. We perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults whose frenum is restricting the movement of the mouth and tongue. The frenum can be surgically altered to increase their range of motion.

Gum Grafts

A gum graft is a procedure that is commonly performed on patients with gum recession. This issue causes tooth roots to become exposed and can lead to discomfort and sensitivity. During a gum graft, your dentist takes tissue from another area of your mouth and transplants it onto the gum line to cover the exposed roots.
