Are you looking for a convenient top rated oral surgeon near Wasilla, AK? Alaska Center for Dentistry is proud to be the only area provider of same-day and next-day emergency dental surgeries. Our doctors can perform everything from extractions to dental implant placement to keep your smile healthy. With our unique range of oral surgery services, you can receive the best dental care right here in our Wasilla dental office.
We currently perform the following surgical procedures:
When a tooth is too badly decayed to save, Dr. Sage Jr. will perform a tooth extraction. An extraction may also be recommended if the tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but if your wisdom teeth are impacted and are crowding your teeth, or if gum disease is present, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best to pull the wisdom teeth before they jeopardize your smile as a whole. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but third molars do not finish developing until closer to about 30 years of age so the timing for this procedure varies.
We will perform imaging of your entire jaw, so we can see the size, location, and developmental trajectory of the wisdom teeth in consideration and determine if removal is necessary.
Periodontal disease can cause the jawbone to become too weak to support a dental implant. In cases like this, Dr. Sage Jr. will often recommend bone grafting to promote healthy bone growth and thicken your jawbone. Over time, your jawbone will naturally regenerate and become strong enough to support a dental implant.
When you have lost one or more teeth due to decay, an accident, or gum disease, we can fill the gap with a natural-looking dental implant to restore your smile’s functionality and appearance. Implants also protect your jaw bone from bone density loss, which is often a natural side-effect of tooth loss.
Dental implants can be used as replacements for a single tooth, or multiple implants can be installed to securely support dentures.
Tongue Tie Release Surgery / Frenectomy
Your child’s tongue is an important part of their oral structure. It affects the position of the teeth, periodontal tissue, swallowing, speech development, and nutrition.
“Tongue Tie” is a condition where the tissue on the underside of the tongue that connects to the floor of their mouth is too short, limiting the tongue’s range of motion. In infants, it can cause problems with breastfeeding, and in young children, it can cause problems with speech. Treatment for this condition is relatively simple, and can be performed at our Wasilla office.
Our doctors may recommend that a biopsy be performed in order to get a closer look at a trouble area. Using ultra-precise technology, these areas are able to be treated quickly and with minimal discomfort to you.
Oral Surgery Sedation Options
Our team is committed to providing you with the most comfortable oral surgery possible. In addition to upholding a calm office environment, Alaska Center for Dentistry also offers several sedation options to take the stress and pain out of your oral surgery.
