Trust Our Team With Your Oral Surgical Needs

It’s our goal that you won’t need to visit outside specialists, like another oral surgeon, for your dental needs. At our practice, we primarily perform extractions. If you need a more complex surgical procedure like bone grafting for implants, we may refer you to another doctor.

Rest assured, we perform extractions only when necessary. A few common reasons for tooth removal include:

  • Reduce overcrowding before you begin your aligner treatment
  • Remove remaining unhealthy teeth so you can get your dentures
  • Protect other healthy teeth from infection

We’d much rather save your tooth. We encourage you to visit us regularly for dental cleanings and exams. These services help avoid an extraction and keep your smile in great shape.

Restore Your Smile With Our Replacement Teeth Options

Once we have extracted your tooth, we offer many restoration options if needed to complete the gaps in your smile. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Sibhatu is an expert on rebuilding smiles. You can receive:

  • A Single Crown With an Implant – If you’ve lost just one tooth, we can replace it with a crown that’s secured by an implant.
  • Dental Bridge – We can replace one tooth or several teeth with a bridge that anchors to nearby healthy teeth or to implants.
  • Dentures – We have several dentures options if you need an entire arch of teeth replaced, including implant dentures. We also have partial dentures if you have some healthy teeth.

If you need oral surgery, call 510-983-7444 for an appointment if you’re a new patient. Existing patients can call 510-240-7264. We’re open Saturdays to fit in with your busy schedule! You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

How long does it take a tooth removal to heal?

In most cases, you can expect your extraction site to heal fully within approximately seven to 10 days. Your healing will depend partly on how well you follow the aftercare instructions we’ll give you. If you’re careful about what you eat and drink and avoid vigorous exercise for a few days, your healing will be quicker and more comfortable.

Does oral surgery cause jaw pain?

Many people do feel soreness after oral surgery, but that fades as you recover. If anything, oral surgery is done to alleviate pain and long-term oral health problems. Our dental professionals will be happy to advise you on the best way to recover from your surgery so you can get back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.

How can I prepare for oral surgery?

You’ll need to avoid smoking for at least 12 hours prior to oral surgery (and 24 hours after). We perform most oral surgeries using only local anesthesia, so you’ll be able to enjoy a light meal several hours beforehand. We’ll give you more specific instructions. It’s a good idea to take off work or school for at least a day or two, depending on the kind of surgery you receive.
