Oral Surgery

Are you suffering from severe dental pain? Are missing teeth or an impacted wisdom tooth affecting your oral health?

Oral surgery can resolve several maxillofacial conditions before they can cause severe damage to your teeth, jaw, and gums.

Dr. Gregory Anderson in Logan, UT, can diagnose and treat the full scope of maxillofacial conditions that require oral surgery.

We can handle or coordinate any service, from dental implants to dental restorations and more.

A Comprehensive Approach to Restoring Your Health 

Specialists are trained in how the jaw, teeth, and other structures of the head work in conjunction with the rest of your body.

They took me right in when I was having severe tooth pain. I ended up having infection and decay right up to nasal floor. After clearing out  the infection there was some extensive repair which included taking tissue from another part of my gums to fix damage to nasal floor. It's been a pain filled recovery, but I feel Dr. Anderson was brilliant in how he went about fixing something that could have been a much larger problem, so grateful! And his staff was great and friendly as well!

We Use Advanced Technology  for All Types of Oral Surgery 

Dr. Anderson and the team at our Garland and Logan, UT, dental practices utilize several tools to diagnose and treat conditions.
Dental software

CAD/CAM:

Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology refers to the digital software and on-site milling machine we use at our office. This state-of-the-art system allows us to create superior-looking and fitting restorations while you wait.  

X-ray showing impacted wisdom teeth

Digital X-Rays:

Digital radiography is a type of imaging that uses far less radiation than traditional x-rays. It also allows us to produce enhanced images of your teeth and other oral structures instantaneously on the computer. Digital x-rays are useful in many types of surgery.

Surgical guide

Surgical Guides:

A surgical guide is an innovative advancement in dental implant treatment. These custom guides are created based on each patient's unique bite. The technology allows for more precise implant placement in the jaw, reducing recovery time and the risk of complications.

Oral Surgeon vs. General Dentist What Are the Differences?

Patients frequently wonder: If a general dentist can perform my surgery, like wisdom tooth removal, why do I need an oral surgeon? The short answer is that an oral surgeon is versed in a wider array of oral surgery procedures, and is more qualified to handle especially complex cases. When it comes to certain needs, it pays to trust your care to a specialist.

Let's take a closer look at what makes an oral surgeon different from a dentist:

Training

Oral surgeons go through specialty training at a hospital after they receive their dental degree. During this four-year residency, they learn how to diagnose, treat, and manage complex oral conditions like bone recession.

Focus on Surgery

Oral surgeons frequently perform surgeries like bone grafting and dental implant placement, rather than handling occasional cases.

Capable of Treating Complex Cases

Although some dentists handle minor oral surgery procedures, complex cases call for the expertise of an oral surgeon.

You Can Rest Easy Under Our Care

Our entire staff takes great measures to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible. In addition to nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation, our staff is trained to provide general anesthesia for more extensive procedures. Dr. Anderson and everyone at our Logan, UT, practice is focused not only on providing outstanding care, but also maintaining your comfort every step of the way. Get in touch with our Logan, UT, practice today to request an appointment and explore how we can help you get the care you need in a calm environment.

Suffering From Jawbone Recession? Do Not Delay Treatment

The Bone Grafting Procedure Step by Step

Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. They provide the ultimate support to restorations like dentures and crowns. If you have been living with missing teeth for a long time, you have likely suffered jawbone recession, which can affect your candidacy for dental implants. Dr. Anderson and his Logan, UT, team can perform bone grafting to prompt the regrowth of healthy bone tissue and provide a viable base for your implant-supported dentures or crowns. Here is what to expect when undergoing bone grafting:

Consultation

You will meet with Dr. Anderson at his Logan, UT, practice to assess your needs and determine if a bone graft is right for you.

Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is used in this procedure to numb the treatment area and maintain your comfort. You may also request sedation to keep you comfortable throughout your appointment.

Incisions

Dr. Anderson will make small incisions in your gums to access the underlying jawbone.

Grafting

Dr. Anderson will prep the area based on which bone grafting procedure you are having completed, and then place the bone grafting material.

Sutures

Once the grafting material is placed, Dr. Anderson will suture the incisions closed. 

Dental Implants

After your jaw has been given time to heal (typically around four months), Dr. Anderson can place your dental implants.

The staff here are incredible. As far as health coverage is concerned, they go above and beyond to get your procedure approved. Sandra was literally on the phone with my insurance company for three straight hours. She gets it done! It's refreshing to see a medical office work so hard on behalf of their clients. I would never have been able to afford this surgery out-of-pocket. If I could give six stars, I would.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you likely have concerns about your care, so we can start by answering questions we often hear during initial visits.

How Many Visits Will I Need?

Most treatments will involve a consultation and a separate appointment for your procedure. While a bone graft or tooth extraction can be completed after one operation, treating more complex issues like facial reconstructions and TMJ disorder may take several appointments to develop a successful treatment plan.

How Long Will My Treatment Last?

The duration of treatment will also differ on a case-by-case basis. Dental implant treatment can take several months as your jaw heals from the operation and the implant posts fuse with your bone. Other treatments, like wisdom tooth extraction, are performed in a few hours and the majority of recovery occurs within three days.

What Does Recovery Entail?

Post-operative instructions on proper recovery will also vary, but typically include getting plenty of rest, taking over-the-counter pain medication as directed, eating soft foods, and applying ice packs in areas of discomfort and swelling. It is never a good idea to smoke before or after surgery as it can cause blot clots and other complications.

Is Oral Surgery Painful?

Our Logan, UT, practice takes measures to make every procedure virtually painless. Local anesthesia eliminates pain at the treatment site, though you may still feel pressure. We can also provide sedation upon request. Or, if your procedure is extensive, we can provide general anesthesia, in which you will be unconscious. During recovery, you may be prescribed over-the-counter medication to help manage your pain. In some cases, over-the-counter pain meds may be sufficient.

What Are the Risks of Oral Surgery?

The risks associated with oral surgery depend on the type of surgery you are having. However, being under the care of an experienced surgeon like Dr. Anderson minimizes any potential risk during and after surgery. Common side effects are jaw soreness, discomfort, and swelling. Every surgery involves a risk of infection, which is why we follow the strictest standards of sterilization.
