What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is the specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing and treating complex dental issues through surgical procedures. It involves surgical interventions to address problems related to the teeth, jaw, gums, and other oral structures. Oral surgery can range from simple extractions and dental implant placements to more complex procedures like bone grafting.

Oral Surgery Solutions at Kevin H. Gropp DDS

Wisdom Teeth Removal

One of the most common oral surgeries is extracting wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth often emerge misaligned or crowded, causing pain, infection, and other complications. Our skilled oral surgeons perform safe and efficient wisdom teeth removal to alleviate discomfort and prevent future oral health problems.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. Our oral surgeons have extensive experience in dental implant placement, ensuring optimal function and aesthetics. We use high-quality materials and advanced techniques to restore your smile and improve oral health.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a procedure that augments the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for dental implants or restore bone density. Our skilled surgeons use the latest techniques to ensure successful bone grafting procedures, promoting optimal healing and long-term implant success.

Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft tissue grafting, also called gum grafting, is a dental procedure performed to restore and augment gum tissue. It can treat receding gums from gum disease, aggressive tooth brushing, or natural aging. During the surgery, a small amount of gum tissue is taken from one area of the mouth and placed in the area with insufficient gum tissue. This treatment helps cover exposed tooth roots, protect them from sensitivity, and enhance the appearance of the smile.

Sinus Augmentation

Sinus augmentation, also known as a sinus lift, is a common oral surgical procedure performed to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw. It’s often required when there’s insufficient bone height in the upper molars and premolar area to support dental implants. This procedure helps promote new bone growth and provides a solid foundation for the successful placement of dental implants. 

Crown Lengthening 

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure performed to expose more of the tooth structure by removing gum tissue or bone around the tooth. It can help prepare a tooth for restorative or cosmetic treatments. Crown lengthening can be necessary when a tooth is fractured near the gum line, decay extends below the gum line, or when there is insufficient tooth structure for a dental crown or filling.

Post-Op Care

Good post-operative care speeds recovery, reduces the risk of complications, improves results, and gets you back to normal routines sooner after oral surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Recovery time varies from a few days to a few months, depending on the type of oral surgery performed. Simple extractions may require a few days of rest, while more complex procedures like bone grafting surgery may involve several weeks of healing. Our team will provide post-operative care instructions to promote a smooth recovery.
Our team takes every measure to ensure your comfort during oral surgery. Local anesthesia or sedation is administered to numb the surgical site and minimize discomfort. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness, but you can manage it with prescribed and over-the-counter pain medications.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications involved in oral surgery. However, choosing experienced oral surgeons who prioritize patient safety and take necessary precautions can minimize risks. They’ll discuss the potential risks during the consultation.
Insurance coverage for oral surgery varies depending on your dental insurance plan. Your dentist’s finance staff will assist you in determining your insurance coverage and guide you through the financial aspects of your treatment.
