Oral Surgery

Having your wisdom teeth removed is one of the most routine oral surgeries, but it is not the only reason you may need to have an extraction performed. There are a variety of reasons that you may need oral surgery, including: repair of your teeth, jaw, and palate, alleviate problems such as sleep apnea, or repair damages caused by a serious accident or injury.

Before any surgery takes place, we ask that you come in for a complete exam to ensure that the procedure will benefit your oral health. Our top priority is to restore, save, and repair your natural teeth as they are the best means of a healthy, functional, and beautiful mouth. However, there are some situations in which removing a tooth is unavoidable. Reasons why we may recommend an extraction include:

  • A permanent tooth that cannot be restored due to dental disease.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth or wisdom teeth that result in hygiene issues.
  • A baby tooth that does not naturally fall out that could negatively impact the growth of permanent tooth.

Dental extractions are a very common procedure, so you have nothing to worry about when you come to Summit Family Dentistry. If extraction is recommended, we will make sure you are comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. We also offer medication and nitrous oxide to help reduce anxiety if you are nervous about what your procedure entails. If you are concerned about extractions, we can explain the options available to you and may suggest additional procedures such as grafting to plan appropriately. It is our main concern, aside from doing an exceptional job, to ensure you are comfortable, happy, and safe. We want to make your experience as painless as possible.

Other surgical products we offer are:

  • Socket Preservation
  • Grafting
  •  Alveoloplasty
  • Implant Placement
