Oftentimes there is not enough room in the jaw to comfortably accommodate this third set of molars, causing them to become impacted, grow in at an angle, or crowd other teeth. Wisdom teeth removal can eliminate pain and potential complications.
Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting tooth replacement option. A small titanium post serves as a substitute tooth root to prevent bone loss and securely holds a replacement in place, allowing you to eat, drink, speak, and smile with greater confidence.
Smile-in-a-Day treatment can restore the function and appearance of your smile in a single appointment. With as few as four dental implants, dental prostheses are affixed to the jaw and will not slip out of place, giving you the freedom to eat the foods you enjoy.
When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, tooth extraction can provide significant relief and prevent further complications while allowing for restorative care. It can also create additional space in the mouth to support orthodontic treatment.
Over time, missing teeth can cause bone loss in the jaw. Bone grafting can improve both the quality and quantity of bone available to support dental implants, maintain the integrity of the jaw, and preserve facial structure.
The maxillary sinuses are located just above the upper jaw behind the cheeks. A sinus lift gently moves the sinuses up and increases bone volume to allow for the placement of dental implants along the molar region.

Oral surgeons commonly examine any changes to the lining of the mouth, whether discolorations, thickening of the skin, or sores. Oral pathology can help detect infection, cancer, or other conditions and support treatment planning to keep the mouth healthy.
Accidents and injuries happen, but when they involve the face, they can cause physical and emotional distress. Dr. Smiley is an oral surgeon well-versed in treating facial lacerations, fractures to the face or jaw, avulsed teeth, and other trauma to preserve appearance and function.
