Oral Surgery


Examples are biopsy, periodontal surgery, apical surgery, implant surgery, and surgical extractions of teeth.

There are different reasons teeth may need to be removed:

  • Gum disease (teeth may become loose due to loss of bone and gum recession)

  • Trauma (due to an accident or sports injury)

  • Decay (decay in the tooth may have gone beyond repair)

  • Overcrowding (some patients have teeth that overlap each other)

  • Wisdom teeth (most patients do not have room for wisdom teeth or their wisdom teeth grow in sideways)

  • Infection ( teeth may need to be removed due to a gum infection

  • Orthodontics (patients with small mouths may not be able to accommodate all their teeth or they may have a tooth in the wrong place)

  • Many of our patients have surgical needs. Dr. Altman and Dr. Knowles are well versed in many surgical procedures. The Doctors offer a variety of surgical treatments including removal of teeth, wisdom teeth, teeth needing to be removed for orthodontic treatment and biopsies of soft tissue lesions.
