Oral surgery is an option we have in dentistry to provide surgery, the teeth, the gums, and the bone, if it's necessary to intervene to more serious problems. If we're talking about oral surgery, we're talking about wisdom teeth extractions, we’re talking about broken-down teeth that cannot be restored ... these types of things, basically.
We can treat your oral surgical needs here and provide you health and function by alleviating the disease, the problem, however it is, and we follow up and manage those problems with you. Then once that's done, we can decide, do you need some restorative option or some follow-up that's involved with that?
If you have a tooth or teeth that are infected and you're having pain with it, and they need extractions, they need an oral surgical extraction, come on in. Let's take a look at it. We'll diagnose it. We'll take an X-ray. We'll give you whatever you need to help you with the pain, and we'll help you get the tooth out so you can be comfortable again, and you can be healthy.
In addition to our experienced dentists, you’ll find:
- Advanced technology like panoramic X-rays for planning and performing your oral surgery procedures
- Topical numbing gel for sting-free local anesthesia
- Three kinds of dental sedation to keep you relaxed throughout any treatment
- Same-day care for dental emergencies
- Comforts like pillows and blankets in a private care room

Don’t Worry About Pain During Your Dental Surgery
Our dentists are comfortable performing all but the most complicated tooth extractions. You’ll save time, hassle, and money by having your teeth removed in our office instead of visiting an outside oral surgeon. Once your extraction has been taken care of, we’ll be happy to talk to you about your options for replacement teeth, including dental implants.
We’re committed to keeping your procedure as pain-free as possible. To that end, we use a topical numbing gel before administering local anesthesia so you won’t feel anything. Unlike most general dentists, we also offer three kinds of dental sedation, all of which provide varying levels of relaxation. We want to ensure you’re free of anxiety, no matter which treatment you’re receiving. Your options are:
- Inhaled sedation, also known as laughing gas
- Oral sedation, in the form of a prescription pill
- IV sedation, for our deepest level of relaxation
