Our team can help people of all ages in our community, from kids and teens to adults and seniors. Oral surgery can address problems too severe for a general dentist or orthodontists, although we often work alongside them to ensure a seamless treatment transition. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about transforming smiles with oral surgery.
Bone Grafting Prepares Smiles For Implants
When tooth loss remains untreated, this could mean a loss of mass and density in your jaw. You soon could find your smile unable to support dental implants. But to rebuild your smile, we could rebuild the smile with oral surgery. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about jawbone grafting.
Addressing Your Facial Trauma
When you suffer a serious injury to your face, including lacerations, missing teeth, or a broken jaw, then this could lead to major problems with your smile’s health, function, and appearance. Fortunately, we have experience helping patients with minor and complex cases of facial trauma. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about treatment options and how we transform your smile following severe injuries.
Taking Steps To Bracket Your Impacted Tooth
When a tooth doesn’t completely erupt, this partial eruption, or impaction, could lead to serious trouble for your oral health. In fact, this could mean misalignment and even infected teeth! Which is why moving the tooth to its proper position is so essential. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about bracketing impacted teeth.
When Extraction Can Save Your Smile
From time to time, a tooth can become a serious problem. In these instances a tooth extraction procedure can be helpful in the restoration of a healthy smile. While saving healthy natural dental material is a priority, it is also necessary to quickly eradicate situations that may lead to further complications.
Severe infection is one common way in which the health of your smile may become compromised and require that one or more of your teeth will need to be removed by a trained oral health care professional. There are two different forms of this process, depending on multiple factors. A simple extraction can occur when the tooth is whole and can stay together while being pulled. Surgical extraction is a more complicated process when an incision is necessary to ensure that all the matter below the gumline is able to be recovered. At Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA, we work diligently to gather all the remnants of your tooth during an extraction. Through the use of digital x-rays and CBCT technology, we can give you a gentler experience with less radiation and intrusiveness. Discover the benefits of surgical tooth removal! (more…)

A New Implant World
One of the most popular forms of current dental procedures is the placement of a prosthodontic implant with a threaded titanium post. These grow with the help of our body through a unique process known as osseointegration. This special metal thrives when placed within the bone of the jaw, providing an amazingly strong foundation for your new prosthetic tooth replacement.
Another benefit of dental implants is their versatility. This process works to give you an elegant new single replacement that matches your other healthy teeth so that nobody else can even tell that you have had this procedure. In addition to this form of restoration, a new process known as All-On-Four provides a stable foundation for a full set of dentures. At Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery, we specialize in the placement of implant-supported dentures to bring you a strong bite and a bright future! (more…)
