Dental Surgery & You


From extractions to implants, there are a variety of reasons you might need dental surgery. If you think you need dental surgery, you might be anxious to have an operation on your mouth. That is why it is important to find a dentist with the right training and bedside manner. When you find an experienced, caring dentist, you will feel more confident about your needed surgery. It is important not to avoid the needs of your mouth. Afterall, a healthy mouth is correlated to your overall health. Dental issues, whether cosmetic or otherwise, are important to address for your own health and wellness.

Find a doctor that has gone through extensive training, like Dr. Shieh of South Shore Smiles. At South Shore Smiles, we offer:

  • Extractions: An extraction is the complete removal of a tooth.

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal: This is common, as wisdom teeth often don’t grow in correctly.

  • Bone/Socket Grafting: Socket bone grafting is done at the time a tooth is removed. The hole where tooth roots once occupied are filled in with the bone grafting to promote healing, minimize the risk of dry socket, maintain the structure of the bone, and provide a foundation for the future tooth replacement

  • Dental Implants: If a tooth is extracted or missing for some other reason, it is now possible to replace it using dental implants for a natural looking smile.
