Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.

Our wisdom teeth are not the only ones that can create problems. Some teeth can become impacted or infected due to eruption issues. Dr. Flint may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate painful symptoms after other treatments have been exhausted.

Our oral maxillofacial surgeons are trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration. This includes experience in all forms of sedation and general anesthesia: airway management, endotracheal intubation, establishing and maintaining intravenous lines, and managing complications and emergencies that may arise during administration.

Dental and soft tissue surgery includes surgical treatment of the soft tissues of the face, mouth, and gums to improve function, appearance and oral health.

Oral Cancer Surgery
Due to complexities arising out of the head and neck area, a number of pathologic processes can occur. These diseases range from small to large lesions and can involve multiple structures in the facial region. The treatment of lesions may involve multiple specialties in order to recover. We specialize not only at treating these diseases but also in the reconstructive needs of the patient.

Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and study of problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. The goal of oral pathology is to cure oral diseases with causes that are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact causes of a problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan.

Impacted Canine Teeth
A tooth is considered impacted when it fails to fully extend above the gums. If you have an impacted canine tooth, you do not necessarily require surgery. Generally, surgery is required if the tooth is disruptive or if the patient would like the balance. But, surgery may not be required if the impacted tooth is in a position that it will not damage the adjacent teeth, and it’s not causing concerning symptoms.
