The anxiety associated with dental procedures can often deter patients from seeking the care they need. However, our dedicated team is here to ensure that your journey toward optimal oral health is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Through our comprehensive oral surgery and sedation options, including IV and general anesthesia, we aim to address your dental concerns with utmost care and professionalism, making us your supportive partner in your health journey.

Understanding Oral Surgery and Its Importance

Oral surgery encompasses a broad spectrum of procedures aimed at treating various dental issues that affect your teeth, gums, jaws, or other oral and facial structures. From simple tooth extractions to more complex procedures such as orthodontic tooth uncovery, dental implants and corrective jaw surgeries, oral surgery plays a crucial role in preserving natural facial structures, restoring dentally disabled smiles, and improving the overall function and appearance of your teeth.

When Is Oral Surgery Needed?

Oral surgery may be recommended for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Extensive tooth decay or badly broken teeth that cannot be repaired by traditional means.
  • Gum disease leading to severe periodontitis.
  • Impacted teeth which are buried or blocked out requiring uncovery and anchorage to bring them in to the oral cavity during orthodontic treatment.
  • Impacted teeth, particularly wisdom teeth, pose a risk for cavities, bone loss, and other complications.
  • Missing teeth that require replacement through dental implants.
  • Conditions such as Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), sleep apnea, oral cancer, or benign oral pathology.

Our team of experienced surgeons perform a wide array of oral surgery procedures. Whether you’re in need of pediatric dentistry, wisdom tooth removal, or are considering dental implants as an alternative to dentures, our office is equipped to cater to all your dental needs.

Making Procedures Comfortable with Sedation

Recognizing the importance of patient comfort and safety, we offer various sedation options to ensure you are relaxed and comfortable throughout your procedure. Our sedation methods include IV sedation, oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and general anesthesia. These options allow us to tailor the sedation level to your specific needs and preferences, ensuring a safe, comfortable experience.

Types of Sedation We Provide

  • IV Sedation: Administered intravenously, this type of sedation is often used for more extensive surgical procedures.
  • Oral Sedation: Taken in pill form before the procedure, oral sedation helps reduce anxiety and fear, making you feel more at ease.
  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that helps you relax during your treatment.
  • General Anesthesia: Used for complex surgeries, general anesthesia renders you unconscious, ensuring your comfort during the procedure.
