THE SMILE. PERFECTED.

Oral Surgery

Patients can receive various oral surgery treatments at Michael J Bissiri DDS, provided by our dentist and team in a manner that is as comfortable for you as possible. 

Oral surgery includes a number of surgical dental treatments. The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function, health and appearance of your smile and the surrounding structures, such as your jaw. In many cases, we strive to provide the most conservative treatment possible. However, oral surgery may be necessary to correct certain conditions and improve your oral and overall health. Oral surgery may include:

  • Tooth extraction (for teeth that are decayed, damaged or infected to the point that an effective restoration is impossible)
  • Wisdom teeth removal (for wisdom teeth that are impacted or have grown in at an incorrect angle)
  • Jaw surgery (to treat a TMJ disorder, to correct uneven jaw growth or to improve the fit of dentures)
  • Bone grafts (to increase bone density and/or to improve the chances for a successful dental implant)

While we provide many oral surgery treatments at our office, we also work closely with other dental professionals and hospitals to ensure that you receive the high-quality results you deserve. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and your needs to determine whether oral surgery is the best available treatment choice for you.

Our team is committed to ensuring that your oral surgery is as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to contact us today to learn more about oral surgery and to schedule your individual consultation!

TOOTH EXTRACTION

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

Our dentist and team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so that you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!

WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

The third molars, which are commonly called the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because they are the last to erupt, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone) or grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:

  • Disturbing the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
  • Damage to the neighboring teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
  • The formation of cysts
  • Damage to the jawbone

Our dentist may recommend wisdom teeth removal to avoid these serious complications and to keep your smile healthy. We will carefully evaluate your smile, including the positioning of your teeth and wisdom teeth, to determine whether your smile would benefit from wisdom teeth removal. Our team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal treatment is as painless and comfortable as possible. To learn more about wisdom teeth removal, please call or visit us today. We are committed to keeping your smile in the best possible health.
