We can preserve your oral health and improve your smile with surgical procedures like:

  • Tooth Removal – Saving a diseased or damaged tooth will always be our priority. If an extraction is necessary, we can remove the tooth quickly and gently. We may also require the removal of two or more teeth to prepare your mouth for dentures or dental implants.
  • Bone Grafts – If you’ve struggled with tooth loss, you may have been left with a weak jawbone or insufficient bone mass. A bone graft procedure can rebuild and strengthen those areas. It’s often necessary to help you become a good candidate for dental implants.
  • Dental Implants — In most cases, we can place and restore your dental implants in our office. These artificial tooth roots keep your new teeth firmly in place. They give you stronger dental function and jawbone strength.

Dr. Ted Thomas has decades of experience restoring patients’ oral function and smile’s beauty. In most cases, you won’t need to visit an outside oral surgeon for the above treatments. Plus, our team will go out of our way to provide a comfortable and positive experience.

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 orthodontic treatment or restorations. If necessary, we’ll recommend a bone graft to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants.

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

Your pain level will vary depending on the extent of your surgical procedure, your age, and your overall health. For some procedures, you may feel little or no pain as you recover. For more extensive procedures, you may have some soreness. In any case, we’ll provide guidance to help you minimize pain and soreness.

How can I prepare for oral surgery?

You’ll need to avoid smoking for at least 12 hours prior to oral surgery (and 24 hours after). We perform many oral surgeries using only local anesthesia, so you’ll be able to enjoy a light meal several hours beforehand. We’ll give you more specific instructions. It’s a good idea to take off work or school for at least a day or two, depending on the kind of surgery you receive.
