Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions requiring surgical intervention.

Dra. Tatiana Luebke

When you hear the words "oral surgery," you may think of a hospital setting, general anesthesia, and one or more days in recovery from this type of dental procedure. Many dental procedures performed in a general dental office are considered oral surgery. Here are some examples of oral surgery procedures.

  • Extraction of teeth beyond repair either from tooth decay, root fracture, trauma or lack of space.
  • Surgical extraction of very broken down or impacted teeth.
  • Dental implants.
  • Bone or soft tissue grafts.
  • Removal of suspicious lesions.

Most of these procedures can be well handled in our practice under local anesthesia or sedation.
