Warren’s Trusted Family Dentist Also Performs Oral Surgery
What is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a dentist who has received specialized education and training following dental school and has earned a specialty degree or certification in the field of oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Why would I need an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons commonly perform difficult teeth extractions (such as with wisdom teeth) and provide surgical treatment for a variety of dental or facial issues - pain, misaligned jaws and injuries due to accidents.
Are you a candidate for oral surgery?
There are a variety of conditions that may require oral surgery that include: wisdom teeth removal, multiple teeth extractions, dental implants, correcting ill-fitting dentures, and periodontitis. Not to fear, Sparkle Dental’s Dr. Monica is the friendliest dentist in Warren, MI and she will take excellent care of you and your family. You can experience the convenience of coming to one location to have your dental work done.
Probably the most common example of oral surgery is extracting wisdom teeth. Having your wisdom teeth extracted can prevent many future dental problems, including increased risk of infection, crowded teeth, tooth decay, periodontal disease, and cysts in the jawbone. The experienced dental pros at Sparkle Dental deliver you painless oral surgery in our state-of-the-art dental clinic.

Your teeth can be impacted in the bone or soft tissue, completely or partially erupted, or they may be erupting in different or non-favorable directions. If wisdom teeth are completely impacted, then they are mostly or entirely beneath bone and/or soft tissue. Partially impacted teeth imply that part of the tooth is covered in bone, and soft tissue impacted teeth mean that the tooth is covered by soft tissue. In addition, oral surgery may be essential if you have had previous orthodontic treatments like invisible braces (Invisalign®, Clearcorrect) in order to keep your teeth properly aligned.
Oral surgery is also performed on dental patients that need dental implants to replace extracted or missing teeth. Dental implants are completely safe and amazingly effective for replacing teeth that cannot be saved. Also, certain things such as bone levels and medical history must be evaluated prior to the oral surgery so that outcome is effective, and not every patient is a good candidate. Sparkle Dental doctors are full-service and highly qualified dentists capable of determining if you would be a candidate for dental implants. Remember too, that good oral hygiene is an important factor for dental implant longevity.

Painless oral surgery that’s easy on your wallet
Local anesthesia is included in your oral surgery procedure, but we also have other options to make you more comfortable and your experience worry-free as well as pain-free. One of the options most commonly used is Nitrous Oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas” or “happy gas”. Nitrous Oxide includes local anesthesia and is completely reversible simply by turning the gas off. Another option for additional comfort is oral sedation.
Most oral surgery procedures are covered by dental insurance, and we participate with most dental insurance plans and have expert schedulers and billers who can help to estimate the cost of any oral surgery procedure. We also offer you interest-free financing for any dental procedure.
