Types of oral surgery procedures available with Dr. Douglas Nyakundi of Alex Bell Dental in Centerville, OH
When it comes to the need for oral surgery, it is important to have a team on your side that offers a wide variety of solutions under one roof. There are many types of treatments that may be required for patients in the area of Centerville, OH, and Dr. Daniel Cobb of Alex Bell Dental can assist.
What types of oral surgery is available?
There are various types of surgery available for patients who need comprehensive treatment for a variety of dental concerns. Below is a small sampling of the services provided in our office without the need for referral to other specialists:
- Extractions – there are many times when extraction of baby or adult teeth may be necessary. Some patients may require removal of teeth prior to orthodontic treatment when overcrowding is a concern. Wisdom teeth tend to become problematic for many patients and may require removal. Teeth that are damaged beyond repair may need to be removed.
- Dental implant placement – missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible for patients who have lost teeth, or had them extracted. This maintains the alignment of the existing teeth and also maintains function and appearance. Dental implants are a popular option for many of our patients, because they are permanent, long-lasting, and natural-looking. At Alex Bell Dental, we provide both placement of dental implants and restoration with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
- Gum contouring – when patients have a “gummy smile,” they may want to have this aesthetic concern addressed quickly and easily. This is when our team may suggest gum contouring. The contouring of the soft tissues can bring the gums upward and make the smile look more balanced between the appearance of the teeth and gums. Some patients may also need their gums brought downward if they are noticing recession or “long teeth.”
- Bone grafting – when patients are serious about having dental implants placed, but are not proper candidates due to lack of bone in the jaw, they may want to ask our team about bone grafting. This is a way of building up the bone of the jaw to prepare it for the placement of dental implants. The bone is required so the implant has a proper foundation for successful placement. Bone grafting can be completed with natural bone or with the use of synthetic materials.
What treatment is right for me?

Patients can have their consultation appointment and treatments done at Alex Bell Dental while also maintaining their oral health and wellness with routine visits and examinations.
