Why Choose Our Oral Surgeon in Elk Grove?

Our dental office is focused on quality patient care and giving every patient the best results possible. Because every patient is different, and not all situations are the same, we believe treatment should reflect that.

With years of experience in the dental field, our dentists are equipped to handle any challenge, including problems during surgery.

This will include digital x-rays and a physical examination to determine if oral surgery is the best solution to meet their needs.

What Is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is any medical procedure that artificially modifies the teeth, gums, or jaw. There are a few types of oral surgery, including endodontic, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and periodontics. Depending on your situation and need, it would determine what type of surgery is necessary. For example, those experiencing problems with the pulp or root of the tooth would benefit from endodontic surgery solutions like root canals.

Other surgical solutions can include tooth replacement using dental prosthetics and orthodontics, which involve installing dental implants and extractions, or periodontics that addresses issues with the gums.

Benefits of Oral Surgery

In many cases, We will look for non-surgical solutions first. Many dental professionals are quick to choose oral surgery to solve problems. However, this isn’t always the best course of treatment for the patient or their long-term dental needs.We take into consideration many factors before offering our recommendation for oral surgery. Oral surgery is often more invasive than other procedures, but it is often the most effective at treating missing teeth, gum disease, cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, and more.

Experiencing Pain From an Impacted Wisdom Tooth?

Oral surgery can fix many problems. One of the most common we see are patients that have impacted wisdom teeth. Many patients experience tremendous amounts of pain when their wisdom teeth come in. There is little space available. With such a tight fit, more problems can occur other than the discomfort.

Wisdom teeth can lead to shifts in the alignment of a smile, tooth decay, or cause teeth to break. With oral surgery, your dentist will safely remove your wisdom teeth. Using anesthetic, patients can find relief from impacted wisdom teeth with no discomfort.

Oral surgery can be complex. It is essential that you choose a dental professional that has years of experience, training, and knowledge to perform the procedure. We are skilled at performing many types of oral surgery procedures.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement. These deliver long-lasting solutions that are both comfortable for the wearer while preventing bone loss to the jaw. Dental implants are surgically installed either just under the gum, or the preferred method, into the jaw bone. When inserted by a trained dentist, dental implants have an extremely high success rate with little complications.

Tooth Extractions

Extractions, also known as having a tooth pulled, are one of the most common oral surgeries performed. Extractions can be needed when a tooth breaks, or if the tooth isn’t salvageable. Another example is wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth can drastically affect a person’s smile, including the alignment. They can also become painful. If there isn’t enough space in your mouth for the wisdom teeth to settle into, teeth can crowd, tooth decay or breakage can also result. In many cases, it is recommended to have the third molar sets removed.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafts may be needed should you want dental implants. Over time and after losing a tooth, the jaw bone will start to deteriorate. This is very common in denture wearers. In order for your dentist to place dental implants, there needs to be adequate tissue present to accept the implant.

The surgical solution of bone grafts will restore the amount of tissue to the jawline, creating more favorable conditions for the dental implant. Bone grafts use grafting material applied directly to the jaw. While healing, the jawbone will fuse with the material creating more bone mass.
