We offer many surgical procedures to meet the needs of our patients, such as:

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – We handle wisdom teeth extraction on a case-by-case basis. We may refer more complicated cases with impaction to a specialist.
  • Ridge AugmentationWe’ll recreate the contours of your gums and jaw to restore your healthy appearance or to prepare you for implants.
  • Sinus Lifts If you are getting implants in your upper jaw, we’ll make room for the implants by adding bone to support them.
  • Bone Grafts – If you’ve experienced significant bone loss, this will regenerate bone in your jaw so your mouth is ready for implants.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

You might need oral surgery for a variety of reasons. If you have a damaged or diseased tooth that needs to be extracted, oral surgery will take care of it. You might have wisdom teeth that need removal. A bone graft, sinus lift, or ridge augmentation might be needed to get your mouth ready for implants.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

You should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours after your surgery. Doing so could cause problems that prolong your healing. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days.

Does oral surgery cause jaw pain?

Many people do feel soreness after oral surgery, but that fades as you recover. If anything, oral surgery is done to alleviate pain and long-term oral health problems. Our dental professionals will be happy to advise you on the best way to recover from your surgery so you can get back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.
