Get Your Dental Surgery From a Team You Trust

Oral surgery may not sound like good news, but it’s often what gets you out of pain and gives you the smile you want. Dr. Wong only recommends what is absolutely necessary. While he’ll try to save a tooth whenever possible, sometimes damage is too severe. That’s when oral surgery is needed to keep your other teeth healthy. In other instances, unhealthy gums may need repair or you may need a procedure that rebuilds bone to support dental implants.

Our team will ensure you are comfortable for any procedure. Advanced technology such as lasers can streamline many treatments. In addition, your dentist may use healing techniques, such as platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). It promotes a quicker recovery.

Your surgical options include:

  • Tooth Extractions – An extraction is used to address damaged or problematic teeth. Your dentist will discuss replacement options after your mouth has healed.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – Avoid overcrowding and other problems down the road with the removal of wisdom teeth. These third molars typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 25.
  • Cosmetic Gum Surgery Enhance the appearance of your gums for a more pleasing smile.
  • Ridge Augmentation – Restore the natural contour of your jawline to enhance your facial appearance or prepare your jaw for implants.
  • Sinus Lifts – Raise the sinus area and replenish the bone in your upper jaw to prepare the area for successful dental implant placement.
  • Gum Grafts – Replenish receding gums and improve overall gum health with a grafting procedure. We may use a donor’s tissue or tissue from your own mouth.
  • Bone Grafts If you have lived with tooth loss for a long time, you may need a procedure that strengthens the jawbone to support dental implants.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

Tooth extraction is often needed if a tooth is too damaged to repair or if it is damaging your other teeth. In some cases, you need to have teeth removed to make room for dentures or another dental restoration. If necessary, we’ll recommend a bone graft or similar procedure to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

We recommend not exercising at all for the first 24 hours after oral surgery. Trying to do too much too soon can prolong healing. Vigorous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and lead to a painful dry socket. For the next few days, a patient should limit activities to low-impact exercises as a precaution.

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.
