Keep Your Smile Healthy With Dental Surgery

When you find a dental team you’re comfortable with, the last thing you want is to be referred to a specialist for some type of oral care. That’s why we’ll always do our best to provide all the care you and your family need right here under one roof. You’ll save money, time, and headache without having to travel to see an outside oral surgeon.

Our dentists use advanced technology like digital and panoramic X-rays, digital scanners, and a 3-D cone beam CT scanner to give you the best care possible. You can also stay relaxed with two forms of soothing sedation.

Some types of oral surgery we provide are:

  • Tooth Extractions – If we can’t save your damaged or infected tooth with restorative dentistry, we’ll gently remove it to prevent further problems.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – If your erupted wisdom teeth need removal, you can count on us for your procedure. Extracting wisdom teeth can help avoid dental problems like crowded teeth and gum disease.
  • Bone Grafts – To prepare a weak jawbone for dental implants, we’ll add bone material to your jaw. This helps it grow new bone cells.
  • Dental Implant Placement – Your dentist will place your implants in-house in most cases. Implants can then be restored with a crown, a bridge, or dentures to replace any number of missing teeth.

Call Moss Family Dentistry today at 540-732-7374 to schedule a consultation. Make sure your smile stays healthy with oral surgery in Fredericksburg. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery
When would I need oral surgery?

There are several circumstances that might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Likewise, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they emerge and need to be extracted. Other procedures like bone grafts prepare for treatments such as dental implants.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first 24 hours after oral surgery, you shouldn’t attempt any sort of exercise. Doing too much too soon can cause problems. For example, strenuous exercise could loosen the blood clot on a tooth extraction site and cause a painful dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for a few more days to be on the safe side.

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

The type of oral surgery you have will ultimately determine how much discomfort you feel, but rest assured our goal is to provide the most comfortable dental care we can. For most of the oral surgery procedures we perform, over-the-counter pain relievers will take care of any discomfort. If needed, your dentist can prescribe something stronger to help you through the healing process.
