Oral Surgery

At Sweet Water Family Dentistry, we take pride in our ability to provide high-quality dental care to our patients. We perform a variety of oral surgeries to help restore your dental health to a normal and healthy state.

Some of the oral care surgeries offered at our practice are:

  1. Dental Implants: dental implant procedure involves surgically placing a metal post into the jawbone which acts as a root for a replacement tooth. The implant will eventually fuse with the gum and bone over time. Dental implants are a great solution for people looking for a permanent way to replace their missing teeth.
  2. Bone Grafting: The bone grafting procedure is used to restore lost jawbone by adding artificial grafts or natural grafts taken from the body of the patient. Most often, bone grafting is used to add strength to the jawbone to enhance the success rate of implant surgery.
  3. Teeth extraction: Surgical extraction is used if a tooth has broken off at the gum line or has not come out in the mouth yet. Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last set of teeth to develop. There are times when they fail to erupt completely through the gum line and become impacted between the jawbone and the gum tissue. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of the jaw. They need to be surgically removed in order to avoid the occurrence of these problems.
