Oral Surgery

Many dental issues may require oral and maxillofacial surgery, and the team at Smiles Family Dentistry is equipped to meet the full range of dental surgery needs. Oral surgery is performed skillfully by board-certified oral surgeons with state-of-the-art equipment to support patient comfort and promote excellent oral health outcomes.

Top-Rate Oral Surgery at Your Local Dental Office

Some patients believe that they’ll need a referral to another office for oral surgeries, but that isn’t the case. Many procedures can be carried out by our in-house board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons from our team.

The oral surgeons in our surgery group have the experience and skills to carry out many common types of oral surgery. They have the appropriate residency training and education credentials from top dentistry schools and are board certified.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most commonly needed oral surgeries. Not everyone has wisdom teeth, but most who do will have them emerge in their late teens or early twenties. There is rarely enough space in the mouth for these extra teeth, and they can cause crowding, impaction, infections, and other issues.

If you start to experience jaw pain or other signs of complications, we can evaluate your situation and determine whether you need wisdom teeth extraction. If so, we can carry out the procedure quickly and comfortably.

Local anesthetic is often enough to keep patients comfortable during the procedure. We also offer additional sedative options for particularly complex cases or for anyone who experiences dental anxiety. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is always a safe and affordable option.

Our team also provides other tooth extractions, whether they are needed due to tooth decay, gum disease, or dental trauma.

Dental Implant Surgery and Bone Grafting

Dental implants are a great replacement for missing teeth. If you’re missing one, multiple, or all of your teeth, dental implants could restore the appearance and function of your smile. Dental implants also deliver exceptional long-term oral health results.

Our board-certified oral surgeons perform implant surgery to place the titanium implant posts that will support your replacement teeth. We’ll also provide dental crowns, bridges, or All-on-4 full arch replacements that attach to the dental implant. These are custom-made to provide a natural-looking smile and the optimal fit.

Because dental implants rely on the jawbone for support, patients must have a certain jawbone thickness. Even healthy patients can fall outside of this range. In these cases, we offer bone grafting surgery to transplant bone from another area to the jawbone. The bone integrates fully to provide a strong foundation for dental implants.

Additional Oral Surgery Services

Our board-certified oral surgeons also perform biopsies on suspicious lesions, frenectomies and orthodontic extractions.
