Save Your Smile With Our Oral Surgical Procedures

Many people assume they have to visit an outside oral surgeon for certain necessary procedures. But as our patient, you can come right here to our office for many of your surgical needs. We offer:

  • Tooth Extractions – While we always prefer to save your tooth, an extraction may be necessary to protect other healthy teeth. We’ll gently remove your tooth and then work with you on a restoration.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – If you are between the ages of 17 to 25, you are likely starting to get your wisdom teeth. We can remove your wisdom teeth before they become problematic to your smile. We may need to refer you to a specialist if they are impacted.
  • Bone Graft – We’ll add bone material to your jaw that will restore the volume of bone necessary for implants.
  • Ridge Augmentation – We’ll restore the contours of your jaw so your mouth is prepared for an implant placement.

We know how nerve-wracking it is to need dental surgery. That’s why we offer ways to relieve your dental anxiety while you are with us. First, we’ll use a numbing topical anesthetic so you don’t feel a thing. Plus, you can opt for sedation through laughing gas to ease your anxiety. We also have headphones for you to wear while watching TV so you stay happily distracted while we work.

Get Help for Your Dental Emergencies

No one likes to have an emergency. With a dental emergency, you want to know where you can go to restore your smile and get out of pain. Whether you’re an existing patient or you haven’t seen us before, you can get help ASAP for your urgent dental needs. We’ll see you within 24 to 48 hours and will even try to see you after hours, if necessary. A few common emergencies we see are:

  • Knocked Out Teeth – When you’ve knocked out a tooth, make sure you put it in your mouth or a small container of saliva. Then call us ASAP so we can restore your smile. The sooner you can get to us, the better.
  • Chipped or Cracked Tooth – If you chipped or cracked a tooth, keep any parts of your tooth that you’ve found and bring them with you. We may repair your tooth with a veneer, a crown, or bonding. It’s important to fix your tooth right away as bacteria can get inside your tooth through this damage to your enamel.
  • Toothache – A toothache is often a sign you have an infection. If you are in pain, schedule a visit right away. We may need to offer you gum disease treatment or a root canal depending on where the infection is located.

Whether you are experiencing a dental emergency or you are concerned you need oral surgery in St. George, call 435-500-5342 for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

Tooth extraction is often needed if a tooth is too damaged to repair or if it is damaging your other teeth. In some cases, you need to have teeth removed to make room for dentures or another dental restoration. If necessary, we’ll recommend a bone graft to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants.

Can you help with my dental emergency?

Over his career, Dr. Crandall has helped his patients through almost every type of dental emergency imaginable. He is experienced and knowledgeable in a wide array of treatments and can handle your situation as well. Our whole team looks forward to serving you in your hour of need so you can feel better soon.

Are there steps I can take at home to relieve dental anxiety?

We believe the more you prepare at home, the better your dental experience will be. If you start to feel anxious about your dental work, take six to 10 deep breaths slowly. Doing so will help you relax and lower your heart rate. It also helps to picture yourself lying back comfortably in the dental chair. When it comes time for your appointment, you can also use these techniques in our office.
