Oral Surgery in Atlanta, GA

What is Oral Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery generally covers a range of surgical procedures including mouth surgery, which is commonly called dental surgery, and jaw and facial reconstruction. Specifically, maxillofacial surgery is facial and jaw surgery, while orthognathic surgery includes procedures to correct jaw alignment. Surgeries are generally performed in an office, rather than a hospital.

If you are searching for, “dental surgery near me,” consider our comfortable office staffed by trained professionals. Call us to arrange a consultation. We look forward to serving you.

What are Typical Oral Surgery Services?

If your dental professional recommends any of the following services, please call our office for an appointment.

Tooth Extractions

Oral surgeons handle complicated tooth extractions. If a general dentist cannot pull the tooth because it has not emerged, or it broke at or above the gum line, your dentist will recommend oral surgery. While some of our patients are concerned about the cost of a tooth extraction, our fee varies, depending on the complexity of the extraction and the tooth’s condition. Please contact our office for an examination by an oral surgeon, who can give you an estimate of your tooth extraction cost.

Oral Cancer Diagnosis

Oral cancer is usually detected in the latter stages, as so few people realize that oral cancer is both common and deadly. Oral cancer screenings can catch the disease early, when treatment is far more effective. We biopsy any abnormality found to ensure that our patients can begin treatment immediately.

Oral Pathology

Our oral pathology services include diagnosing and treating oral and maxillofacial diseases. Our oral surgeons work with other medical providers to treat diseases such as oral cancer and other congenital or acquired diseases. We utilize multiple methods, including surgery, to give our patients the healthy smile that they deserve.

Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous sedation adds to a patient’s comfort during some of the numerous procedures performed by our dental professionals. We have a trained and experienced oral surgeon who delivers either twilight sedation or sleep dentistry safely. The procedures go by quickly for the patient, allowing an oral surgeon to finish work that normally would be split into two appointments.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a form of jaw surgery used to allow people with jawbone loss to have implants. Implants fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, but only if there is enough bone available. An oral surgeon can perform a bone graft, but the maxillary sinuses need lifting to make room for the additional bone. Contact our office for a consultation if you’ve been told that you do not have enough bone to hold an implant.

Platelet Rich Plasma

We utilize platelet rich plasma (PRP) in our office for dental surgeries so our patients heal faster. PRP, which is derived from the patient’s own blood, has been used safely in other types of surgeries. Recent advances now allow its use in dental surgeries. It aids in blood clot formation, which reduces bleeding, and produces new tissue growth quickly.

How Do I Arrange an Appointment for Oral Surgery in Atlanta?

At our office, we have skilled oral surgeons who will insure your comfort before, during and after your procedure. Before you leave our office, we will make sure you understand your aftercare instructions, which will help you heal faster. Call our office today to arrange an oral surgery consultation.
