Leave Your Smile to Our Team of Experts

No one likes the idea of having a surgical procedure performed on their mouth. However, dental surgery is sometimes necessary to restore your oral health and prevent further problems with your teeth and gums. To make getting the care you need as simple as possible, our dentists offer several types of oral surgery:

  • Tooth Removal – If we can’t save your damaged or diseased tooth, we’ll gently remove it to keep your oral health intact.
  • Gum Grafts – Your dentist will take tissue from another area of your mouth and place it where your gums have receded.
  • Cosmetic Gum Surgery – Using a low-power laser, we can trim excess gum tissue to make short teeth appear longer or to correct an uneven gumline.
  • Dental Implant Placement – We’ll plan your implant treatment with 3-D imaging and use a computer-guided placement procedure for the best results.
  • Bone Grafts – To strengthen your jawbone for dental implants, we can add natural or synthetic bone tissue to your jaw.
  • Sinus Lifts – This is a type of bone graft for your upper jaw that makes more room to place your dental implants.

Call our office today at 580-246-4488 to schedule a consultation. For gentle oral surgery in Lawton, look no further than Lopez Dental Associates. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery
When would I need oral surgery?

Several circumstances might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Other procedures like bone grafts and sinus lifts prepare for treatments such as dental implants. Gum grafts will repair receded gums and help them heal properly.

When is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance or medical insurance may cover a portion of your oral surgery. We recommend you check with your individual carriers to find out what they will and won’t pay for before you have any work done. That way there aren’t any big surprises in store for you. As a convenience, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

You should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours after your surgery. Doing so could cause problems that prolong your healing. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days.
