Dentoalveolar Surgery

    • Canine Surgery

      The canine (eye tooth), is usually expected to erupt before the age of 14 in females and 15 in males. It is the most frequently impacted tooth after the third molars. It is believed that the tooth’s long eruption path makes it more prone to disturbances.

    • Accelerated Orthodontic Surgery

      Accelerated Orthodontic Surgery is a technique sensitive procedure that is completed to help decrease the total time in braces.

    • Temporary Anchorage Devices

      A temporary anchorage device, or TAD, is a titanium anchor that is placed in the bone to assist your orthodontist with more efficient tooth movement.

    • Preprosthetic Surgery (Bone Contouring)

      The goal of preprosthetic surgery is to contour any bone needed for patients who may need dentures, implants or any type of removable prosthetic.

    • Extractions

      During an extraction, instruments are used to maneuver and loosen the tooth and to deliver it with forceps.

    • Pathology

      A biopsy is a procedure in which a tissue sample is removed from a patient and submitted for laboratory examination. After we send the biopsy to the lab a pathologist uses a microscope to look at the tissue more closely.

    • Infections

      Dental infections can arise from deep cavities, periodontal disease, fractured teeth, trauma, postoperative infections from extractions or implants.

Implant Rehabilitation

    • Dental Rehabilitation With Implants

      A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the bone where teeth are missing. The implant has a connection with the overlying fabricated crown. The implant and crown will then function and look like the root and crown of a natural tooth. 

    • Full Arch Solutions

      Patients who are missing all or most of their teeth may be good candidates for an implant supported prosthesis.

    • Implant Salvage Procedures

      Since the introduction of dental implants to North America in the 1980’s, dental implants have enjoyed great success. However, it has become evident that the same periodontal diseases that affect teeth can affect dental implants as well.

Wisdom Teeth

    • Wisdom Teeth

      Wisdom teeth are also known as the third molars and are located in the back of the mouth. Their development is usually completed between the ages of 16-21 and are the last teeth to erupt. ​If they come in properly and not mis-aligned, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. However, proper care by your general dentist is required including routine hygiene appointments as well as periodic X-rays.

Grafting Solutions

    • Sinus Lift

      There are different types of lifts that can be completed depending on the amount of bone that is already there. A lift can be completed at the same time as the implant placement in most cases

    • Soft Tissue Grafting

      Soft tissue grafting in the setting of implant placement is commonly needed to give the gum tissue a natural appearance. Typically, after a tooth is removed the bone shrinks in the region, but also, the tissue may scar leaving an unnatural appearance.

    • Grafting Solutions

      Occasionally, patients need larger grafts after tumor removal, bone loss due to aging, or due to trauma. A hip graft can be harvested and used to develop the site for rehabilitation.

    • Platelet Rich Plasma

      During healing or after surgery, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the wound to initiate the healing process. One of those cell types are platelets. It is well known that platelets can enhance local healing after surgery.


    • Orthognathic Surgery

      Correctional jaw surgery involves changing the position of the upper or lower jaws and the related teeth.

    • Alveolar Cleft Grafting

      Alveolar bone grafting is an important part of the reconstructive journey for many cleft lip and palate patients. Patients between the ages of 6-9 are candidates for alveolar cleft repair.

    • Trauma

      Facial injuries can impair a patient’s ability to eat, speak, interact with others, and perform other important functions. Facial injuries can have severe psychological and social consequences if not managed properly.

    • TMJ Surgery

      Facial injuries can impair a patient’s ability to eat, speak, interact with others, and perform other important functions. Facial injuries can have severe psychological and social consequences if not managed properly.

Soft Tissue & Nerves

    • Trigeminal Nerve/Peripheral Nerve Repair

      The most common reason for surgical intervention and repair of a nerve is when there is evidence of a “nerve scar” or neuroma. Neuromas form when there is a physical injury to the nerve itself.

    • Lip Surgery

      Lip lengthening, Lip shortening/lip lift, Lip repositioning, Lip reduction/Cheiloplasty


    • Anesthesia

      Anesthesia is at the core of what we offer at Blueridge OMS. Understandably, surgery can cause anxiety! At Blueridge OMS we offer our patients the safety and comfort required for any surgical procedure.
