Why Trust Us with Your Oral Surgery Needs?

Oral surgery is one of the most invasive and most detailed types of dental treatments a person may need. We take this very seriously. That is why we have only the very best oral and maxillofacial surgeons working for us.

To become an oral surgeon, a person must complete and graduate four years of dental school. He or she then spends time working in a hospital residency program for several years. The surgeon works alongside those performing general surgeries, emergency surgeries, and anesthesia-related treatments. This is then complimented with a focused area of hands-on learning with otolaryngology, the study of the ear, nose, and throat, as well as treatment in plastic surgery. This allows our surgeons to provide the very best level of experience to meet your needs.

What Happens If You Need Oral Surgery?

If you have been recommended for oral surgery, our dental team will talk to you about what steps are necessary. There may be some pre-planning, blood work, and other steps to ensure you are healthy enough for surgery. Then, we will talk to you about exactly what will happen on the day of the procedure. We will give you care instructions for before, during, and after.

One area many of our clients need more information on is sedation and anesthesia. We do provide sedation dentistry services for mild to moderate types of procedures. In those cases where general anesthesia or IV sedation is beneficial, we will discuss with you the benefits and risks.

Also, know we have the ability to handle any type of procedure and the complications from it. This includes providing emergency treatment services should complications arise during your procedure.
