How does oral surgery differ from general dentistry? Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, often referred to as oral surgeons, are dental specialists with years of additional training and clinical experience beyond dental school. These qualifications give our oral surgeons the necessary skills to address problems with your teeth and mouth and even areas of your face. This can include dental implants, tooth extractions and jaw surgery. Our offices utilize the latest technology and sedation options to ensure that your visit is comfortable, efficient and safe.

The term “oral surgery” can include a range of treatments designed to enhance the function, appearance and in particular the health of your mouth and teeth and the surrounding and supporting structures. While a conservative approach to treatment is always the preferred option, oral surgery may in fact be the best choice for improving your smile. We offer an extensive range of treatments to address a variety of issues and our oral surgeons will be happy to talk with you about which treatment or combination of treatments may be right for you. We also work with referring dentists and physicians to help you achieve the results you want.
