Immediate implant placement followed by temporary provisionalization can lead to great tissue contour which enhances the esthetics at the time of final restoration. At Bowie Oral Surgery we aim for excellent results every time. We achieve this by scheduling procedures in the required allotted time which allows us to focus on each surgery without distractions. We also believe in minimally invasive techniques which we utilize for each and every surgery, allowing for faster recovery and decreased pain/swelling. Try us out and experience the difference.

Dental abscesses can be very painful and costly to treat if allowed to sit long enough. They can progress from a simple tooth infection to other areas which can be life threatening at times.

A tooth with a dental abscess either needs a root canal or it needs to be removed to prevent further infection spread and pain!

Oral surgeons are highly equipped to drain infections that may have spread to more life threatening locations such as the airway.

Next time you have a tooth ache or a bump on the gum see your dentist or oral surgeon right away!

So your dentist said you need to see an oral surgeon? Or are you just wondering what’s the difference between an oral surgeon and what your general dentist does?

The truth is some general dentists do oral surgery and some prefer to send you to a specialist, particularly when the procedure is more complicated. Oral surgeons train for an additional 4 to 6 years after dental school. The training is very rigorous and extensive and covers all surgical procedures of the teeth, jaws and surrounding structures. This makes oral surgeons the most skilled specialist for teeth extractions or other surgical procedures of the jaws, particularly complex ones.
