Oral surgery is a restorative dentistry option that includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, teeth, gums and jaws. We provide oral surgery treatments including dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, and in some cases, TMD and sleep evaluations.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. Unfortunately, the jaw doesn’t always have adequate space for them to properly erupt. In such cases, the wisdom teeth can become impacted and cause a host of disruptive problems such as misalignment, jaw cysts, bone loss and gum infection. We proudly offer wisdom teeth removal for teens and adults to help them avoid such serious consequences. Rest assured that our Charleston dental team extends superior, patient-centered care during wisdom teeth removal and other types of oral surgeries. We use effective sedation dentistry techniques to ensure your experience is as comfortable and rewarding as possible.
Please contact our office today to learn more about oral surgery for impacted wisdom teeth or other dental complications. Our dentists are experienced and highly qualified to restore your smile to optimal health.
