Oral surgery refers to those surgical procedures which are aimed towards the treatment of a variety of ailments in the oral structures such as the gums, teeth, jaws etc. At the office of Joseph F. DeSantis and Associates LLC, we perform dental surgeries with a high level of care and precision to ensure maximum patient comfort.

A few of the oral surgeries conducted at our practice are:

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is often performed prior to installation of dental restorations such as bridges and dental implants. In most cases, the success of implant surgery depends upon the health of the jawbone at the surgical site. If the jawbone has receded or is damaged, then it won’t be able to support dental implants. Bone grafting is done in such cases to add volume and strength to the jaw bone. The procedure involves making an incision in the jaw bone and placing grafts that may have either been artificially sourced or may have been taken from the patient’s body itself.

Teeth Extractions

Teeth extraction procedures are used to remove a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. Extraction is generally conducted for teeth that have been damaged and decayed beyond repair, wisdom teeth that are impacted and could affect the health of other nearby teeth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. We ensure that your extraction is a pain free and comfortable process for you. Anesthesia and sedation are used to ensure maximum patient comfort. We will also give you detailed instructions on how you can care for the extraction site to aid proper healing. Once the area has healed, we can advise you on the best method for replacing your extracted tooth.
