Experienced Oral Surgeons

What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery includes a wide range of procedures for removing, repairing, or restructuring teeth and surrounding tissues. This includes simple procedures, such as tooth extraction, as well as more complex procedures, such as bone grafts. If you have suffered an injury to your teeth, jaw or face, oral surgery procedures can help to restore the area. Other oral surgery procedures are used to diagnose or remove oral cancers, while others are used to make room for teeth to come in straight. The oral surgeons at Friendly DSC conduct a full range of oral surgery procedures at our office in West Covina, CA.

What Training is Required for Oral Surgeons?

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons address issues affecting the teeth and gums, but also work with surrounding structures, including the jaws, forehead, cheekbones, skull, and more. Diagnosing conditions and providing treatment to such important, complex areas requires many years of training and experience. Oral surgeons first must graduate dental school and then complete 4 to 6 years of specialized training. Oral surgeons are trained to address functional as well as aesthetic issues that are making it difficult for you to eat or chew, or issues that are affecting your appearance. With years of experience and education, oral surgeons have the skills necessary to diagnose and resolve many different types of conditions.

We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care

X-ray technology allows oral surgeons to get the clearest view of issues affecting teeth, and design the best surgical intervention. Our oral surgeons at Friendly DSC in West Covina, CA use dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to get a close, detailed view of the affected teeth, soft tissues, nerves, and more. This technology constructs a 3-dimensional view of the patient’s mouth, so oral surgeons can see the issue from every angle.
