About Oral Surgery

What is oral surgery?

The surgical treatment of areas affecting the mouth, jaws, and face is collectively known as oral surgery. Oral surgeons have received specialized training and education to identify, understand, and surgically treat the oral and maxillofacial area. This makes them specialists in their field and able to treat a wide variety of conditions on patients of all ages.

Pain Control

At Boulder Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, our practice has been at the forefront in the use of delayed-release local anesthetic that minimizes or reduces the need for heavy pain medication and opioids. We know that the removal of wisdom teeth and surgical dental procedures can lead to some post-operative discomfort, which is why our practice utilizes this new formula of delayed-release anesthetic during your surgery to provide you with optimum ease and comfort during recovery. This anesthetic is released directly into the surgical site several days following your procedure, giving you the time and comfort to heal without having to depend on heavy pain medication.

Anesthesia Options

At Boulder Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, your comfort is of the utmost importance. We offer various sedation and anesthesia options to put you at ease for your oral surgery procedure.

3D Scanning

We work hard to develop a detailed and accurate treatment plan specific to your needs. We utilize 3D scanning to help get the best images of your condition so we can provide exceptional care.
