Oral surgery procedures may be performed to relieve pain, treat an infection or trauma, restore function, or improve a person’s appearance. But just hearing the word “surgery” often brings to mind a stay in the hospital, general anesthesia, and perhaps a lengthy recovery period. This is not the case at Starshine Dentistry.
Dr. Alexander only partners with the best professionals in the medical and dental field to ensure our patients receive top-notch care and a compassionate approach. Oral surgery is often performed in our dental office setting, under local anesthesia, with minimal recovery time. Before your oral surgery is performed, X-rays will often be taken to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning. A step-by-step explanation of the procedure along with your anesthesia options will be discussed, and you can ask any questions you have.
Procedures and conditions treated include:
- Tooth extraction
- Implant placement
- Corrective jaw surgery
- Snoring and sleep apnea
- Emergency care for facial trauma
