Promote Dental Health With the Help of Our Outstanding Team

At Hawthorne Smile Spa, we like to make dental care as smooth and easy as possible, and that includes our oral surgery treatments. Sedation is always available to help our patients relax. We’ll even help you decide which sedation option is right for your family’s situation. In addition, we use some of the latest technology, including 3-D imaging and intraoral cameras, to ensure your care is as precise as possible.

We offer several types of oral surgery in our modern dentist office, including:

  • Tooth Extractions – When needed, we will gently remove a diseased or damaged tooth.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – We can extract these third molars to prevent problems with the other teeth.
  • Gum Grafts – Our dentist will take tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth and place it where the gums have receded.
  • Bone Grafts – Synthetic bone material added to the patient’s jaw will stimulate the growth of new bone cells and prepare the adult jaw for dental implants.
  • Sinus Lifts – This type of bone graft enhances the bone in the patient’s upper jaw.
  • Ridge Augmentations – We can build up the jaw ridge after the loss of adult teeth either in preparation for implants or to make it more attractive.

If you think your child might need pediatric oral surgery in Hawthorne or you may need a surgical procedure yourself, call our expert team today at 310-982-4895 to schedule an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

There are several circumstances that might require oral surgery. If you or your loved one has a badly damaged or diseased tooth, it may need removal. Likewise, wisdom teeth often cause problems as they emerge and need to be extracted. Other procedures like bone grafts, sinus lifts, and ridge augmentations 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 plan may cover a portion of your family’s oral surgery. We recommend you check with your individual carrier to find out what is and is not covered and what your out-of-pocket expense will be. We do offer several flexible payment options, including third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

We recommend not exercising at all for the first 24 hours after oral surgery. Trying to do too much too soon can actually prolong healing time. Rigorous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and lead to a painful dry socket. For the next few days, a patient should limit activities to low-impact exercises as a precaution.
