Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure used to address problems with your teeth, gums, or jaw.
At Sargon Dental, Dr. Lazarof has years of experience performing oral surgery. His deep understanding of oral anatomy ensures the best possible care with limited risks and minimal downtime.
At Sargon Dental, Dr. Lazarof offers several types of oral surgery, including:
Bone grafting is a type of oral surgery used to improve jaw bone volume. If you want to get dental implants but have a thin or unsupportive jawbone, bone grafting can provide extra support.
A sinus lift is a type of surgery used to add bone volume to your upper jaw. During a sinus lift procedure, Dr. Lazarof carefully implants natural or synthetic bone material into a space in your upper jaw. Once placed, the implant material encourages the production of new, healthy bone tissue.
Ultratooth™ implants can replace one, several, or all of your permanent teeth. Dr. Lazarof invented this proprietary system that allows for complete installation in just one appointment. There is no lengthy recovery period. After you receive your Ultratooth implants, you can bite and chew right away.
If you are missing several teeth and you want to transform your smile, Dr. Lazarof might recommend full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction combines several types of oral surgery to improve the appearance and function of your teeth and smile.
To determine the type of oral surgery that you will most benefit from, Dr. Lazarof conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. Afterward, he takes oral X-rays to examine your tooth roots, jawbone, and gums.
Once Dr. Lazarof gathers all the necessary information, he develops a custom surgical treatment plan. Whenever possible, he uses minimally invasive treatments that result in speedy recovery times.
Oral surgery is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some tooth sensitivity, swelling, and minor discomfort. Follow Dr. Lazarof’s recovery instructions carefully, take your medication as prescribed, and attend all follow-up appointments. You’ll feel back to normal within a week.
