Expert in these areas

Wisdom Teeth
If your wisdom teeth are causing you discomfort, call us for a consultation for surgical removal. Impacted wisdom teeth can adversely impact your oral health putting you at risk of infection, TMJ problems, and shifting of your other teeth.
Bone Grafting
After a tooth extraction, bone grafting helps rebuild your jawbone. If you’re interested in dental implants, a bone grafting procedure is often the first step as your jawbone needs to be sturdy and dense enough to support the implant.
Hybrid Dentures
Hybrid dentures are sturdy denture options that attach securely to dental implants. This revolutionary approach provides either partial or full dentures that don’t shift around in your mouth while you eat and speak.

Full Mouth Extractions
Before being fitted for a full set of dentures, your remaining teeth need to be extracted. Our team of surgeons is experienced in full mouth extractions in preparation for the dental prosthetic you choose.
Teeth Exposure
A tooth exposure procedure is a common orthodontic surgery. Often in preparation for a grid & chain procedure, your surgeon exposes an impacted tooth so it can quickly and safely emerge from its socket.

Fractures of the jaw and face need to be treated seriously. Our expert surgeons have experience repairing and setting any fracture to the facial area.

You might come across a bump or sore in your mouth that doesn’t seem to heal. If you notice any sort of oral abnormality, make an appointment right away. Our surgical team might recommend a biopsy to rule out cancer or other oral pathology.
Dental Implants
Dental implants provide a sturdy option for tooth replacement. Acting as an artificial tooth root, implants provide a firm foundation for crowns and even dentures.
