Oral Surgery

The Latest in Advanced, Comfortable Oral Surgery

At Heritage Creek Dental, we provide an array of cosmetic and restorative treatments to improve the health and function of our patients’ smiles. However, many times addressing serious dental issues requires more than just crowns or fillings. To treat advanced gum disease or wisdom tooth impaction, you may require oral surgery. Your Albia dentist and our team follow strict safety protocols and offer dental sedation to ensure a calm and comfortable experience. With oral surgery, we strive to help you obtain a stronger, healthier smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of biocompatible titanium posts inserted directly into the jawbone. There, the posts bond with the bone tissue to secure a restoration, such as a porcelain crown or set of dentures. To plan the placement and anchor the dental implant post, you will require oral surgery. Using advanced dental technology, we will plan each step of the process. Our office will provide vital after-care information and answer any questions about the implant and oral surgical process. If you suffer from missing teeth, consider receiving breakthrough dental implants.


When a tooth becomes infected or develops an abscess, the infection could spread to surrounding teeth or even into the jawbone. Common symptoms of a dental infection include:

  • Toothaches
  • Sensitivity
  • Swelling
  • Fever
  • Pain when biting down or chewing

If you experience one or more of these symptoms on a regular basis, then you may have a dental infection. To preserve the health and stability of your smile, you may require extraction. With oral surgery, the experts at Cornerstone Dental will remove the infected tooth, ensuring the good health of your smile. If you’re interested in replacing the lost tooth, we offer a number of restorative options, including dental implants and dentures.

Wisdom Teeth

For most of us, our smiles are meant to hold 28 teeth. However, in our late teens and early 20s, some of us will experience the eruption of a third set of molars, also known as wisdom teeth. This means the moth must accommodate 32 teeth, which can lead to serious complications, including:

  • Toothaches
  • Impaction
  • Misalignment
  • Infection

Using digital x-rays, your Albia dentist can identify the presence of wisdom teeth and decide whether you require removal. If so, we will recommend oral surgery to safely and carefully remove the wisdom teeth and return your smile to optimal health and appearance. If you have any questions about wisdom teeth or extraction, please contact our office today.
