Oral Surgery Services
Oral surgery encompasses procedures treating a wide array of diseases, injuries, and defects in the oral cavity. It is an internationally recognized medical specialty.
Our surgeons are knowledgeable and have received extensive training and education. We practice the highest standards of care and we also utilize cutting edge medical technology for our patients.
Some of the many procedures that fall under the category of oral surgery are removal of impacted teeth, insertion of dental implants, and cosmetic surgeries. We are also able to diagnose and treat certain conditions through oral surgery.
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth. A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your mouth will replace the removed tooth root by forming a blood clot in the area.request an appointment
After a tooth is extracted, an empty socket is left behind. Socket preservation bone grafting allows us to remove the ‘pocket’ made by the missing roots by packing it with bone granules. During the healing process, your jaw remains balanced preventing teeth from shifting and allowing you to receive dental implants to restore your smile.request an appointment
Bone loss is fairly common especially among people who suffer from missing teeth, oral trauma, and gum disease, but can be rebuilt through bone grafting. At Vita Dental, we are proud to offer bone grafting whether your bone loss is severe or mild.
During a bone grafting procedure, we will take a sample of bone from you or an approved donor source and compress it into granules. These bone grafting granules are placed at the site of bone deterioration underneath the gum tissue.
The bone granules fuse to your existing jaw bone creating a solid structure, which can even out your jawline and become capable of supporting dental implants.
For your comfort we have several effective sedation techniques to remove anxiety and stress while providing you with a painless experience.
Once your graft heals, you will be closer to having your restorative dental procedure and your smile improved.request an appointment
