Types of Oral Surgeries 

Tooth Extractions: Tooth extractions may not seem like oral surgical procedures but they are. At A New Smile we provide comfort and efficiency when extracting any tooth, including wisdom teeth. Tooth extraction is a routine procedure done every day. When performed by an experienced dentist tooth extractions are quick and easy.

Implant Placement: Some general dentists are specially trained to perform implant placements which consist of a complex surgical procedure. Implant placements are a dental treatment used to permanently replace one or more missing teeth. The procedure consists of surgically placing a titanium post into your jawbone to act as the root of the new tooth restoration. Our dentists’ provide precision placement and esthetic restorations.

Gum Surgery: Gum surgery can be done for two reasons: to reinstate your gums back to health when suffering from periodontal disease, or to raise your gumline to lengthen your teeth or improve a gummy smile.

  • Bone Replacement Surgery: Osseous surgery or bone grafting, reinstates the strength and density of your jawbone due to the disintegration or atrophy from tooth loss and/or periodontal disease.
