Your dentist may recommend oral surgery for severely decayed, diseased, or damaged teeth. Our office’s oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Shanin, performs bone grafting, sinus lift surgery, advanced procedures in implant surgery, and wisdom teeth removal. In addition to these procedures, we firmly believe in the importance of oral care as a preventive measure for oral cancers, and regular screenings for oral abnormalities that may need to be surgically removed for testing. When a diagnosis indicates that surgery may be required, our first priority is your safety. We render superior surgical care while making you feel comfortable, confident, and pain-free.


Our oral surgeon, Dr. Shanin, has years of experience in full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgery, with wisdom teeth extractions being one of the most common procedures he conducts. Wisdom teeth may need to be removed due to impacted teeth, misalignment due to lack of space in the mouth, or to prevent future dental problems since wisdom teeth can be hard to reach. Wisdom teeth extractions are typically completed in about an hour.


Considered the gold standard in tooth replacement, dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and roots. Dental Implants are made of a small, titanium, screw-like post and capped with a tooth-top or crown. The implant screw is placed in our office by our oral surgeon or our periodontist. After 3-6 months of healing, the implant crown can be placed by your general dentist. Dental implants look natural, are durable and comfortable, and require little upkeep once they’re in place.


Sinus lift surgery, also known as a sinus augmentation or sinus graft, is a procedure recommended by dentists for patients who do not have enough bone to secure a dental implant. During this surgery, the sinus floor is raised through an incision in the gum tissue. The space beneath it is then filled with bone graft material, which can regenerate lost bone and tissue. After the incision is closed, bone usually develops in 4-6 months. An implant can be placed once the bone has healed and developed. In some cases the implant can be placed the same day the sinus lift surgery is performed. Sinus lift surgery is very common and patients report experiencing minimal discomfort during the procedure and after surgery.


A connective tissue graft, or gum graft, is performed to repair damage caused by receding gums. Gum disease is the most common reason for gums to recede. If left untreated, gum recession can lead to tooth loss due to exposure of the tooth’s root. During the procedure, healthy gum tissue is taken from another area of the mouth and attached to the exposed root to build the gum back.
