Our Oral Surgery Services

At Strahler Dental Partners, we’re fully equipped to handle most oral surgeries, ranging from simple procedures like tooth extractions to more complex treatments like sinus lifts.

Tooth Extractions

We will always try to save your tooth whenever possible. But in some cases, tooth extractions may be the best way to relieve pain, prevent complications, and restore your oral health. Dr. Strahler provides gentle, pain-free extractions in Schertz.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

If your wisdom teeth aren’t coming in properly, this can cause pain, discomfort, a higher risk of tooth decay, and lots of other problems. We’re here to help. Dr. Strahler can examine your mouth, determine if your wisdom teeth need to come out, and get your oral health back on track.

Impacted Wisdom Tooth Extractions

If your wisdom teeth are impacted (not fully erupted from the gums), Dr. Strahler can perform a surgical extraction. In this procedure, he’ll make a small opening into the gums. Through this opening, he will cut the tooth into pieces and remove it bit by bit. Once the tooth has been fully extracted, he’ll clean and suture the extraction site.

Bone Grafts

You may need a bone graft after treatment for gum disease, or to prepare for a dental implant. In this process, Dr. Strahler will make a small opening in the jaw bone, and place special bone powder in the area. Over time, your natural jaw bone heals around this powder, strengthening and restoring your jaw.

Sinus Lifts

A sinus lift is the same as a bone graft, but it’s done in the upper jaw. The sinuses are really close to your jaw bone. So during this procedure, Dr. Strahler must “lift” the sinus lining to make room for your bone graft.

Alveoloplasty

After a tooth extraction, there are often bony, sharp ridges left around your empty tooth socket. These can interfere with things like dental implant placement or denture fitting. Alveoloplasty is a procedure that’s done to smooth down these sockets. Depending on your case, it may be done during an extraction, or as a separate procedure.

Tori Removal

Dental tori are harmless bone growths on the bottom of your mouth or the roof of your mouth. They're more common in older patients. While they're not harmful, they can interfere with dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges. If that’s the case, they must be removed. Tori removal is a simple surgical procedure. Dr. Strahler will use special tools to remove the bone growth from the mouth, then sanitize and suture the area to allow it to heal.

FAQ

Does Oral Surgery Hurt?

Not at all. Your mouth will be numb throughout your surgery, so you won’t feel any discomfort. We also offer a variety of sedation options for patients at Strahler Dental Partners, ranging from laughing gas (nitrous oxide) to IV sedation. That means you can relax. Dr. Strahler and our team will provide you with the gentle treatment you need in a comfortable, judgment-free environment.
