Give Your Smile Excellent Treatment From Our Team

It’s not always necessary to travel to see a specialist when you need an oral surgery procedure. Dr. Kirchner can handle many types of oral surgery right here in our office, saving you time, money, and hassle. Plus, you’ll have the benefit of getting your treatment from a team of dental professionals who you know and trust. Some of the common procedures we perform include:

  • Tooth Removal – If we’re not able to repair your tooth, gentle tooth removal will be your best option. Afterward, we have several options for replacing your missing tooth.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction – These “third molars” often cause problems when they begin to emerge during the late teens or early 20s. We can safely remove them so they don’t put your other teeth in jeopardy.
  • Dental Implant Placement – We won’t refer your implant placement to a specialist, as we can handle it right here in our office.
  • Bone Grafts – If your jawbone is too weak or thin for dental implants, we can place bone material in your jaw. In a few months, your bone will be stronger and ready for implants.
  • Ridge Augmentation – Dr. Kirchner can build up your jaw ridge where you’ve lost teeth, either to prepare it for implants or to make it more attractive.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

There are several circumstances that might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Likewise, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they emerge and need to be extracted. Other procedures like bone grafts and ridge augmentations prepare for treatments such as dental implants.

When is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance or medical insurance may cover a portion of your oral surgery. We recommend you check with your individual carriers to find out what they will and won’t pay for before you have any work done. That way there aren’t any big surprises in store for you. As a convenience, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first 24 hours after oral surgery, you shouldn’t attempt any sort of exercise. Doing too much too soon can cause problems. For example, strenuous exercise could loosen the blood clot on a tooth extraction site and cause a painful dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for a few more days to be on the safe side.
