Oral Surgery

When something as simple as a dental filling won’t get the job done, some oral health issues may require oral surgery. We know any type of surgery can feel stressful, but we do our best to make your procedure comfortable throughout.

Types of Oral Surgery

At My Smile Dentistry, Dr. Kelly performs multiple types of surgeries, all for an affordable price. She also provides the option for nitrous oxide sedation to help you feel extra relaxed during your treatment.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium, screw-like post we securely place inside your jawbone. It acts as an artificial root for a missing tooth and is the base for a dental crown. Implants are able to simulate the jaw, preventing it from deteriorating.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

To prevent potential future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't currently causing problems.

During wisdom tooth extraction, your dentist or oral surgeon:

  • Makes an incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth and bone
  • Removes bone that blocks access to the tooth root
  • Divides the tooth into sections if it's easier to remove in pieces
  • Removes the tooth
  • Cleans the site of the removed tooth of any debris from the tooth or bone
  • Stitches the wound closed to promote healing, though this isn't always necessary
  • Places gauze over the extraction site to control bleeding and to help a blood clot form

If you need a wisdom teeth extraction call us to schedule your appointment!


Whether it be a badly damaged tooth or an impacted wisdom tooth, we can extract teeth that may cause health issues if they aren’t removed. The ultimate goal is to save your smile before it comes to this, but sometimes it may be necessary.
