What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery includes a number of surgical treatments we offer at Family Smile Center LLC to improve your oral health, function, and appearance. Our dentist will generally strive to provide the most conservative treatment possible, but certain conditions may require oral surgery for optimal results. Common types of oral surgery in Frederick, Maryland, include:

  • Dental implants
  • Tooth extraction
  • Wisdom teeth removal

Dr. Dinh will make certain that you receive the treatment you need for improved oral health and function.

What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction (tooth removal) is one of the most common kinds of oral surgery we provide at our office. While we work hard to help you keep your teeth healthy for life, tooth extraction is sometimes needed to improve the health of your smile. We may suggest the removal of a tooth if a tooth is so badly infected, decayed, or otherwise damaged that we cannot save it with another treatment. Tooth extraction may also be needed in preparation for orthodontic treatment if there are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth. No matter the reason for tooth extraction, you can rest assured that our team will make your experience at our office as comfortable as possible.
