• Oral Surgery

  • We at the Crestwood Dental Group understand that the thought of oral surgery can be intimidating to our patients at times.  This is why we take every chance we can to make your dental procedure and experience as easy as possible.

    Oral Surgery Procedures

    There are a number of services that might require oral surgery.  Fortunately, our La Grange, KY dentist is well equipped and highly knowledgeable in these procedures.  Common oral surgeries include:

    Tooth Extractions

    Tooth extractions are common and are typically done under local anesthesia.  We may have to remove a tooth to prepare your mouth for dentures, or if an abscess is causing health issues.  A broken tooth may need to be removed to make way for a dental implant. These procedures are fairly quick and help us treat your dental problem when saving the tooth is not an option.

    Wisdom Teeth Removal

    Wisdom teeth usually are best removed by an oral surgeon.  The roots of the wisdom teeth and the angle at which they come in make the extraction procedure a bit more complex.  Our La Grange, KY dentist works with the best oral surgeons in the area to ensure our patients have the utmost care.

    Dental Implants

    Our team takes pride in our ability to create a comfortable environment and pain-free experience for any of our prosthodontic treatments.  Placing a dental implant is just one of the ways we are able to rebuild and restore our patients’ smiles.

    If you are considering implants for your new smile, give our professionals a call.  We’d be happy to review your oral health history and walk you through our procedure.

    Orthognathic Surgery

    This type of surgery is useful for treating sleep apnea, TMD, and orthodontic problems.  If other treatments have been exhausted, we may recommend an orthognathic surgery to correct your issue.  We work very closely with dental professionals in the area to give you the treatment you need.

    Facial Reconstruction

    Injuries and accidents may increase your need to see an oral surgeon.  The surgeon can restore the functionality of your mouth and reconstruct damaged areas.  We work with your oral surgeon to develop a treatment plan and ensure your dental health is restored.

    How do I know if oral surgery is needed?

    The best way to know if you need oral surgery is to first meet with our La Grange, KY dentist.  We use X-Rays and digital intraoral cameras to review the entirety of your situation and will determine next steps based on our findings.

    Call us at (502) 241-9407 if you have questions about oral surgery and our available services.  We’ll work with you to set up a convenient appointment and help you understand how we can work together to restore your smile and health.
