Find the Dental Surgery That Will Preserve Your Smile

To ensure your mouth stays healthy, an oral surgical procedure is sometimes the best answer. But it’s not as intimidating as it may sound. With our advanced cone beam CT scanner, we’re able to use crisp 3-D images of your mouth to plan and perform each procedure with accuracy and precision. To maximize your comfort, we use painless numbing techniques with The Wand® anesthesia system and can offer sedation as well.

Here are the oral surgeries we can perform at Edgewood Dental Care to solve your problem and preserve your smile.

  • Gum Grafting – This procedure is often used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your gum health. After you’ve had gum disease treatment to clean your mouth of bacteria, gum grafting adds tissue to your gums to promote new, healthy growth, cover your exposed roots, and stabilize your teeth. We also offer the Chao Pinhole® technique, a quicker and simpler alternative to a gum graft.
  • Bone Grafting – One of the many devastating effects gum disease can have on your oral health is bone loss. This makes it difficult for you to support dental implants. We can use bone grafting to strengthen your jawbone, encourage new growth, and pave the way for dental implants for a strong, restored bite.
  • Tooth Extractions and Socket Preservation – In some cases, tooth extraction is necessary to relieve dental pain and prevent oral health complications from returning or developing. We may extract troublesome wisdom teeth or remove a diseased tooth that’s beyond saving. To keep you from losing valuable bone mass after an extraction, we’ll often rely on socket preservation.

We only recommend dental surgery when it’s the best solution for your oral health. When that happens, you can trust our experienced, skilled dentists to make you feel relaxed and comfortable every step of the way.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

There are several circumstances that might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Likewise, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they emerge and need to be extracted. We may need to perform a socket preservation procedure to keep you from losing bone mass after an extraction. Other procedures like a bone graft can prepare you for treatments such as dental implants. Gum grafts will repair receded gums and help them heal properly.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first 24 hours after oral surgery, you shouldn’t attempt any sort of exercise. Doing too much too soon can cause problems. For example, strenuous exercise could loosen the blood clot on a tooth extraction site and cause a painful dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for a few more days to be on the safe side.

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

The type of oral surgery you have will ultimately determine how much discomfort you feel, but rest assured our goal is always to provide the most comfortable dental care we can. For most of the oral surgery procedures we perform, over-the-counter pain relievers will take care of any discomfort. If needed, your dentist can prescribe something stronger to help you through the healing process.
