Meet the Oral Surgeons at Wave Dental Specialists

Oral surgery refers to the broad range of operations performed on your teeth, gums, jaw, or surrounding oral structures. You may require oral surgery for any number of receives, including extensive tooth decay, severely damaged teeth, periodontal disease, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), jawbone loss, and more. Our team has assembled in-house oral surgeons and specialists who work together to provide you with state-of-the-art care.  

Here are some of the oral surgeries we perform to restore your oral health and give you back your smile:

Tooth Extraction

Extractions and wisdom tooth removals are the most common type of oral surgery. A tooth may be removed due to severe decay, disease, injury, or wisdom tooth complications. You may also need to have a tooth removed to prepare you for dentures or dental implants.

Bone Grafting

A dental bone graft is performed to treat bone loss that has occurred in your jaw or around your tooth. Bone grafting restores volume and density in bone tissue so that implant can be placed later on once the correct bone density is achieved.

Dental  Implants

Dental implants are the most reliable, natural-looking, and longest-lasting tooth replacement option available. The process involves surgically placing titanium posts in the jawbone and using them to anchor a dental crown, bridge, or implant-retained denture.  

Periodontal Surgery

Patients living with severe periodontitis (commonly known as periodontal or gum disease) may undergo surgery to treat its effects on the gums. This can include surgically treating the infection, removing infected gum tissue, or replacing missing gum tissue through a gum graft procedure.

TMJ  Surgery

If you live with severe pain, stiffness, or lack of mobility in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), you may benefit from TMJ surgery. Surgical procedures can be performed if conversative treatments pail to reduce symptoms and provide relief. TMJ surgery involves operating on the jaw joint and surrounding tissues to improve the patient’s joint mobility and prevent future discomfort.

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer sedation?

Yes, our team offers a full range of sedation options for patients undergoing oral surgery procedures. This includes oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. We will discuss your treatment needs prior to your procedure so that we can ensure a comfortable and pain-free treatment experience.

How much does oral surgery cost?

As with any treatment or procedure, the total cost of your oral surgery will depend on many factors. Our team will provide you with a complete breakdown of all treatment costs and out-of-pocket expenses. We will also help you cover the cost of your care with our convenient payment options and financing plans.

Is oral surgery covered by insurance?

In most cases, oral surgery is considered to be both a medical and a dental procedure and may be covered by one or the other insurance. Our team will verify your insurance benefits and help you maximize your coverage to get everything you are owed. We will also help you cover the cost of your care with our convenient payment options and financing plans.

How long does oral surgery take?

The length of your surgical procedure will depend on many factors, such as the type of surgery needed, how many teeth or areas of the mouth are being treated, and the type of sedation used. Your oral surgeon will discuss the details of your operation with you prior to the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

How long does it take to recover from oral surgery?

How long it takes you to recover from your oral surgery will depend on the type of procedure you need. Patients undergoing extractions and other simple surgical procedures typically feel better within one week. The more extensive or complex the procedure, the more time it will take to recover. Our team will discuss recovery times and post-operative care instructions with you so that you understand every step of your treatment.
