Oral Surgery

In some cases, we refer patients to a specialist for oral surgery. However, general dentists are trained to perform some minor oral surgeries, and your dentist has also taken significant postgraduate courses for various procedures, so you can receive the majority of your dental care in our office, where you feel comfortable, cared for, and familiar. We offer some minor oral surgeries and endodontics. These services include:

  • Extractions to eliminate crowding
  • Extractions of wisdom teeth (third molars)
  • Extractions of unsalvageable teeth
  • Root canal therapy
  • Soft-tissue grafts
  • Crown lengthening
  • Gingivectomies or gum lifts
  • Biopsies
  • Hard-tissue grafts (bone)
  • Dental implant placement
If we believe that you would be better served by a specialist, we'll refer you to a trusted colleague. If you have questions or concerns about any dental procedure that we recommend, please ask. Our team is always available to share information and educational materials. The more you understand about your dental treatment plan, the wiser your decisions will be.
