What is Oral Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery are specialized procedures that go beyond the typical care you would receive at a dental office. While your traditional office can meet basic preventative needs like cleanings and X-rays, surgery should be performed by a dental specialist with advanced training in surgery. Furthermore, oral surgery must be performed in a clinical setting where anesthesia and emergency care is readily available. 

Examples of oral surgery services we provide in Rancho Bernardo include: 

  • Dental implants 
  • Simple tooth extractions
  • Wisdom tooth extractions
  • Bone grafting 
  • Cosmetic surgery 
  • Emergency dental surgery 


Dr. Hekmat is an expert in these specialized surgical procedures and can provide you with compassionate, comprehensive care you can feel good about. 


Tooth Extractions & Impacted Teeth

Pain-free tooth extractions, ensuring your optimal oral health. There are many reason you may need a tooth extraction including the following:

  • Severe Decay: When a tooth is extensively decayed and cannot be restored with a filling or crown.
  • Advanced Gum Disease: If gum disease has progressed to a point where it jeopardizes the tooth’s stability.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: Some orthodontic cases may require the removal of a tooth to create space for proper alignment.
  • Overcrowding: In cases of severe crowding, a dentist may recommend tooth extraction to allow for better alignment.
  • Infection or Abscess: Untreated infections or abscesses may necessitate tooth extraction to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Trauma: Teeth damaged due to accidents or injuries may need extraction if they are beyond repair.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafts promote effective jaw restoration and supporting future dental implants. There are many reasons you would need bone grafts including:

  • Tooth Implants: Before dental implant placement, there must be sufficient bone to support the implant. A bone graft can augment the bone density in the area.
  • Preserving Jaw Structure: Following tooth loss, the jawbone may begin to atrophy over time. A bone graft helps maintain or rebuild bone volume, preventing facial structure changes.
  • Trauma or Injury: Severe injuries or trauma to the jaw can result in bone loss. Bone grafts help restore lost bone and support proper healing.
  • Periodontal Disease: Advanced periodontal (gum) disease can lead to bone loss around the teeth. Bone grafts may be performed to regenerate lost bone tissue.
  • Sinus Lift: In the upper jaw, near the back, the sinus cavity may expand over time, reducing the available bone for dental implants. A sinus lift involves adding bone to the area.
  • Cyst or Tumor Removal: After the removal of a jaw cyst or tumor, a bone graft may be necessary to fill the void and promote healing.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Seamless wisdom teeth removal minimizing discomfort and recovery time. Impacted Wisdom Teeth treatment are for wisdom teeth that don’t have enough space to emerge properly and may need extraction.
