Oral Surgery Q & A

Who is qualified to perform oral surgery?

In addition to completing four years of dental school, oral surgeons have extensive additional training alongside medical residents to develop specific skills, including general surgery, emergency medicine, and anesthesiology.

Oral surgeons have the necessary expertise and knowledge to diagnose functional problems with your jaw, teeth, sinuses, and more. Golden State Smiles provides a range of proven-effective and personalized surgical procedures to resolve various dental problems.

What procedures can an oral surgeon perform?

Oral surgeons can perform a number of oral surgeries to protect and enhance your dental health, such as tooth extractions and more complex surgeries, like:

  • Dental implants
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Soft tissue and bone grafting
  • Detection and treatment of several dental diseases
  • Tooth extractions
  • Treatment for impacted teeth
  • Solutions for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Solutions for obstructive sleep apnea
  • Corrective jaw surgery

Golden State Smiles provides solutions for diseases of the mouth and jaw, trauma, certain cosmetic treatments, and procedures for facial injuries.

Your dentist can help you choose the right procedure for you during your initial consultation. This is also your opportunity to address any concerns or ask any questions you might have. 

With any oral surgery, it’s important you feel prepared, know what to expect, and have clear and realistic goals and expectations about the procedure.

Why would I need oral surgery?

You might need to visit Golden State Smiles if you have impacted wisdom teeth or if you’ve been diagnosed with a soft tissue condition or another dental problem.

If you need a more complex dental procedure, such as the removal of multiple teeth or bone surgery, or if you require more advanced sedation, you’ll need to visit a qualified oral surgeon. These procedures must be safely and effectively performed by a trained oral surgeon. 

If you have a suspicious or abnormal growth in your neck, face, mouth, or jaw, this could be a sign of a more serious oral health problem, and you might need a biopsy from an oral surgeon.

The team at Golden State Smiles performs oral surgery to treat a range of dental issues, such as ankylosis, impacted canine teeth, and impacted wisdom teeth. They also perform advanced procedures, like socket regeneration and laser pocket disinfection (LPD), when necessary.

The right oral surgery can enhance the look and functioning of your bite and smile and provide you with numerous cosmetic and functional benefits.
