Emergency Dental Surgery
From an emergency wisdom tooth removal to urgent dental injury repair, our oral surgeons are here for you when you need us
In the face of a serious tooth fracture or break below the gum line or a painful wisdom tooth impaction, our emergency surgeons can painlessly remove your problem tooth with an emergency tooth extraction. During your surgery, we’ll make a small incision in your gum to access the tooth, and then smoothly pull it out.
Gum Flap Surgery
For patients with gum disease, their gums begin to separate from their teeth and form deep pockets, making it easy for food and bacteria to become stuck. With gum flap surgery, our surgeons will pull back your gums to easily access your teeth for thorough cleaning down to the root. Then, we will reattach your gums snugly to drastically reduce the size of your gum pocket.
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum grafts are a form of gum recession surgery which restores any missing gum tissue that was destroyed during late-stage gum disease. New, healthy tissue will be surgically attached, where it can continue to support your teeth and prevent any looseness or shifts in your bite.
With emergency craniofacial surgery, your emergency oral surgeon can restore the look and function of your mouth, jaw, and face following severe dental trauma. Even with little or no notice beforehand, we are experts at putting an artist’s eye to our restorative procedures, and we do our best to make your smile like new.
Dental Implant Surgery
Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is easy with our
Tustin oral surgeons on the job!
After having a tooth extracted, you should always find a proper replacement to keep your smile as happy and healthy as possible. The best way to do so is with a dental implant. Implants are made of 3 components, a metal implant post, a porcelain crown, and a metal abutment that keeps the whole piece together. At Gold Coast Dental Tustin, our oral surgeons can flawlessly restore your smile, from crown to root, through a series of surgeries that will piece by piece assemble your dental implant. The first implant surgery involves surgically inserting the implant post into the jaw, where it will fuse to the bone. However, an additional bone graft surgery may be needed beforehand to prep your jaw if there isn’t enough bone support for the implant.
This is often the case with patients with dental bridges or dentures as implants are the only tooth restoration option that prevents bone loss after extraction. After healing from the initial implant surgery, the abutment is then attached. Surgery is needed to remove excess gum tissue around the implant post, allowing us to properly reach the implant. Finally, the crown is attached, completing your artificial tooth. The entire process often takes between 6 and 12 months, allowing time between surgeries for healing. Are you interested in restoring your missing tooth with a dental implant? Reach out to our office today at (714) 795-3865 to schedule a consultation.

Is oral surgery painful?
Although the word “surgery” may sound serious and painful, our talented dental oral surgery team does everything we can to make your procedure as pain-free as possible, even in a dental emergency. We use safe and powerful local anesthetic to fully numb the area of your mouth and jaw we are treating, ensuring you don’t feel a bit of discomfort during your time with us.
How long after tooth extraction can I eat on that side?
After your mouth has healed following your tooth removal, you can begin eating on the side of the extraction. This often takes about two weeks to complete, although you may be able to do so earlier as long as it feels comfortable. Be sure to keep the extraction site clean with frequent saltwater rinses after meals.
How do you clean your mouth after oral surgery?
Following your oral surgery, you may want to keep your mouth clean with your normal dental hygiene routine. Please do not. You should avoid brushing or flossing your teeth near where we worked, and you should avoid rinsing, spitting, or using a straw for at least the first 24 hours to allow blood to clot. After those initial 24 hours, you can begin cleaning your mouth with a gentle saltwater rinse. Always be sure to listen to your oral surgeon if they give you any special instructions for keeping your mouth clear around your treatment site.
Can I brush my teeth before oral surgery?
You are encouraged to brush your teeth before your surgery appointment. We want your teeth to be as clean as possible as we work. However, if your surgeon suggests you fast before your procedure, be sure not to swallow any water or toothpaste.
What happens if cleft palate is not treated?
A cleft palate is a congenital defect formed during pregnancy in which the tissues at the roof of a baby’s mouth don’t join together. Without cleft palate repair surgery, it can be hard for your infant to feed or speak as well as cause recurring ear infections or hearing loss. A cleft palate can also affect the number and alignment of teeth a baby develops.
Why do people get gum surgery?
Some patients receive gum surgery to help manage their gum disease, such as when their gums detach or recede from infection. However, gum surgery can be done for cosmetic reasons, such as gum contouring to fix a “gummy smile” and make the teeth appear longer.
