Oral Surgery in Houston

Soft Tissue Grafting

As a common symptom of periodontal disease, receding gums may cause insecurity, sensitivity, and even discomfort. We want you to feel comfortable in your smile, and soft tissue grafting is a great solution to re-establish your gum line. Not only will you be more confident, but it prevents further deterioration. Get back to a healthy, comfortable smile by booking your first consultation.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

To support your smile and eliminate the risk of tooth loss, guided tissue regeneration can prevent issues caused by periodontal disease. Used in tandem with bone grafting, this treatment will restore your jaw bone and treat issues from gum disease. It's important to get periodontal disease treated as it can cause bone resorption which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Don't wait to get treatment, we can help you restore your gums to their previous function with guided tissue regeneration.

Pocket Reduction Surgery

Advanced gum disease can lead to adverse symptoms including tooth loss. This sounds scary, but we are here to help! Halt the progression of advanced gum disease with pocket reduction surgery. This surgery removes bacteria between the gums and tooth root, removing the need for more complicated procedures down the line. If you are at risk due to advanced periodontal disease and want to save your teeth, pocket reduction surgery can restore your oral health and save your smile.

Crown Lengthening

Insecurity about a gummy smile is not uncommon. If you are wanting to change the shape of your gums, improve gum tissue, or prepare for tooth restoration, crown lengthening does it all. It serves cosmetic purposes by eliminating excess gum tissue around the teeth. This will give you a balanced smile that will make you feel confident. It also works as a medical necessity, for example, crown lengthening is commonly used to prepare a damaged tooth for a dental crown. Learn more about our options by getting in touch with us.

Implant Preparation

Having issues with your oral health can prevent you from getting implants. Luckily, you can ensure that you qualify for implants by taking advantage of our implant preparation services. Depending on your dental needs, we offer treatments like tooth extractions, bone ridge smoothing, and bone grafting. To get a dental implant that is strong and long-lasting, proper implant preparation is essential. With our expert care, we provide the best results for dental implants that can last a lifetime. Let's get you back to smiling with confidence.

Extractions

Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.

Ridge Augmentation

After losing a tooth, you may experience jaw bone loss if left untreated. That's why you may hear your doctor recommend ridge augmentation after tooth loss, an extraction, or before getting dental implants. Ridge augmentation recreates the natural contour of the gums and jaw bone to restore its previous function and form. Not only that, but it avoids the need for extra surgery after an extraction. Ridge augmentation is a necessary procedure so that you can keep the natural function and look of your smile.

Bone Grafting

Waiting to replace a missing tooth can cause serious consequences. Soon after you lose a tooth, bone resorption begins, making it difficult to place dental implants properly. Bone grafting increases bone density so that you can restore your smile with dental implants. Having strong bone density is required for placing an implant as it needs to have a strong foundation for the restoration. Bone grafting is one of the first steps in widening your tooth replacement choices. Get in touch to learn more about how we can restore your smile.

Dental Implants

If you're missing a tooth, or need an extraction, it's important to find the right replacement to take its place. Dental implants not only restore your smile's aesthetics but also maintain the functionality of your bite and your overall oral health. By mimicking your tooth's natural roots, dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting tooth replacement, and the only one that actually halts the progression of bone loss. Get in touch with us today to see if dental implants are right for you.

Tori Removal

Alleviating teeth grinding and bite misalignment due to excess bone (or tori) can be stressful and uncomfortable, but we have a solution. Tori removal is a common procedure performed by your oral surgeon that prevents further teeth complications, gets you out of pain, and prepares your smile for any future procedures. These little bone growths can interfere with many restorative treatments such as dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants. Get these treated to prevent any issues before restoring your smile.

Biopsies

Want to stay proactive about your oral health? We offer biopsies to catch any abnormalities in your oral tissue. While oral cancer is rare, it can have severe effects if not caught in time. That is why it's important to stay on top of your routine exams. If we notice an irregularity in your mouth during an oral cancer screening, we can catch it early and have a plan of action ready. Biopsies can help plan for the unexpected, get in touch with us today if you have noticed any abnormalities in your mouth.

Frenectomies

If you have been struggling to move your tongue or lip freely, we have a solution. Frenectomies are an effective, painless procedure that trims unnecessary tissue in the mouth. This allows you to breathe, swallow, and speak without a problem. The procedure may sound scary, but we assure you that it's a simple procedure that releases the excessive tissue from lip or tongue ties in just a single visit.

Abscess Treatment

We don't blame you for feeling anxious when a pocket of pus forms around your infected tooth root. This can cause not only stress but toothaches, poor breath, and even fevers. You don't have to deal with discomfort — let us solve the issue for you with an abscess treatment. An abscess treatment will clear out the pus and prepare your tooth before a root canal or extraction. This is the first step in your restorative journey to get your teeth back and thriving. Don't be afraid to get in touch if you are developing unwanted pus around your tooth.

Jaw Surgery

Misalignment of the jaw can impact your ability to speak, bite, and chew properly. This can be an uncomfortable, painful problem. Bite problems often raise the risk of premature tooth wear and teeth grinding. Not all orthodontic treatments can treat severe cases of misalignment but with jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, we can correct the problem. With corrective jaw surgery, your jaw will shift into proper alignment, improving your smile and oral health.
