Your Smile Is in Good Hands Here

The team at Starr General Dentistry offers you several types of oral surgery. In many cases, this allows you to go to your familiar, hometown dentist for your surgery rather than spending time and money visiting a specialist. With our dentists’ expertise and advanced training, we perform all these procedures right in our office:

  • Tooth Removal – If saving your tooth isn’t possible or beneficial, we’ll remove it to relieve your pain and help you avoid further problems with your oral health.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extractions – When these teeth come through in the wrong place or crowd your other teeth, we can safely remove them to prevent pain and complications.
  • Bone Grafts – A bone grafting procedure will prepare a weak or thin jawbone to receive dental implants so that you can replace your missing teeth.
  • Sinus Lifts – This is a bone graft done on your upper jaw to make the bone healthy enough for implants and make room for them.
  • Ridge Augmentations – This procedure may be done after you lose teeth to build up the jaw ridge. This will prepare it for implants or make it look more attractive.
  • Gum Grafts – Your dentist can place gum tissue from the roof of your mouth on areas where your gums have receded, restoring their appearance and health.

Oral surgery in Waco can keep your mouth healthy. Call Starr General Dentistry today at 254-401-0129 to schedule your consultation, or make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

What are oral surgery procedures?

At Starr General Dentistry, we are proud that we can offer a variety of oral surgical procedures at our office. This starts with tooth extractions, including wisdom tooth removal. You also can get a bone graft, sinus lift, or ridge augmentation to build up your jawbone. If you’ve suffered from receding gums, we can provide a gum graft, too.

Will oral surgery hurt?

At our practice, we do everything we can to make your dental surgery as painless as it can be. This starts with helping you get cozy with blankets and pillows. We will numb the area being worked on and offer two kinds of dental sedation to keep you pain-free during your procedure. While you are likely to experience some soreness as you recover, we’ll advise you on how to best manage that.

Can oral surgery be covered by medical insurance?

Medical insurance often does not cover oral surgery. Your dental insurance plan, however, may help you with the cost of your oral surgery, depending on your plan and provider. Our team will work with you and your provider to get you the maximum benefit. At the same time, you should know that we offer multiple payment options for our patients. We want you to get the treatment you need without breaking your budget.
