An Overview Of All The Procedures In Our Office

 

General Extraction

When teeth become damaged by decay or break down due to trauma or wear, they can typically be restored with a filling, root canal or crown. When the damage is too great, your dentist may decide that the best course of action is to have the tooth removed.

 
 

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, or technically, third molars, are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth. They are behind the upper and lower second molars, “12-year molars.”

 
 

Dental Implants

You deserve a specialist in the field. Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery is known regionally and nationally for excellence in dental implant treatment.

 
 

Exposure and Bracketing of Impacted Teeth

An impacted tooth simply means that it is “stuck” and cannot erupt into function. The maxillary (upper jaw) canine is the second most common tooth to become impacted (after the wisdom teeth.)

 
 

Sinus Lift

Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw—particularly the back teeth, or molars—have a very thin upper jaw. This can be due to age, congenital formation, or the length of time the teeth have been missing.

 
 

Bone Grafting

Bone deterioration, also known as bone resorption, is a common and natural occurrence in the jaw bone if a tooth or multiple teeth have been lost or have caused inflammation.

 
 

Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic)

Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is a procedure performed for patients whose jaws do not meet correctly, which creates an improper bite and misalignment of the jaws.

 
 

Anesthesia

Here you will find an overview of anesthesia and sedation methods used in our office.

 
 

Oral Pathology

We use our mouths for so many tasks, such as eating, speaking, and breathing; consequently, our mouths have an increased risk for disorders and infections known as oral pathology.

 
 

X-Rays

It is important to our doctors at Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon that your diagnosis is accurate. To help determine how we can help you, we often need to obtain some radiographs or x-rays.
