Oral surgery has vastly improved over the last few decades. Thanks to groundbreaking techniques and cutting-edge technology, our surgical options are safer, faster, and more effective than ever before. If you need oral surgery, you've come to the right place!
Wheaton Oral Surgery specializes in a variety of surgical procedures that will improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25.
Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.
Our wisdom teeth are not the only ones that can create problems.
Some teeth can become impacted or infected due to eruption issues. Dr. Scherer may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate painful symptoms after other treatments have been exhausted.
A ridge augmentation is a common and minor oral surgery that improves your jawbone following tooth loss or an extraction.
The alveolar ridge is the part of the jaw that supports the roots of our teeth. In the absence of a tooth, this ridge may deteriorate over time.
If you experience dental trauma be sure to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Injury or trauma to the face can result serious problems for your oral health.
If one of your teeth becomes loose or knocked out, you may need oral surgery.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Some people have dental problems so severe and widespread that they need multiple surgeries. In this case, we may recommend a full mouth reconstruction.
As the name suggests, a full mouth reconstruction refers to the rebuilding of all teeth in a patient's mouth. Because we specialize in surgical procedures, we may work with other specialists to provide you with optimal results.
Successful implant treatment requires a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw. We may recommend a bone graft if your bone is too thin or too soft to support an implant.
A graft can help restore deteriorated bone, and give you a second chance at implant treatment!
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a relatively new approach to tissue regeneration. PRP allows us to take advantage of the healing properties in your blood by isolating the growth platelets.
This makes it immensely beneficial following a bone graft. It can also be an excellent tool for the regeneration of soft tissues.
Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and study of problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region.
The goal of oral pathology is to cure oral diseases with causes that are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact causes of a problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan.
