RESTORE ORAL HEALTH WITH ORAL SURGERY
Do you have a problem that requires oral surgery? Our Charlotte dentist and the team at Burley Dentistry are trained to provide top-notch surgical procedures for our patients. In addition to oral surgeries, we provide a full range of treatments and procedures. At our dental clinic, we will work with you to ensure that your needs are met in a safe, comfortable and caring environment.
The oral surgical procedures offered in house include:
- Bone Grafts
- Tooth Extractions
- Tori reduction
Sinus lifts are used when the sinuses are too close to the mouth. In other words, not enough jawbone is present between the mouth and the sinus cavity. Our Charlotte family dentist solves this issue using a surgical procedure to lift the sinus cavity away from the mouth, creating more space for dental implant placement. This service can mean the difference between successful restoration and being unable to get needed replacement teeth.
Did you know that dental implants require a certain amount of available jawbone structure for successful implant placement? When teeth are missing, the jawbone can deteriorate over time, causing problems with placing dental implants. Bone grafting is designed to strategically build up the bone where the implant will be placed. This helps the implant be successful, so you can achieve the restoration you desire.

Our Charlotte dentist offers painless tooth removal services. We can gently extract a problem tooth or help you get in contact with a trusted professional for tooth extraction. Most extractions are performed in our Charlotte dental office, but we refer complicated cases, especially those involving wisdom teeth to a qualified professional. Additionally, if you are in need of a dental implant in the weeks or months following your tooth removal, our cosmetic dentistry clinic can help.
The mandibular toris is a small bony growth in the jawbone, positioned near the premolars or molars. The palatal torus is the ridge along the roof of the mouth. We offer reduction surgery for these growths for a few reasons, most commonly for patients getting a denture. When the growth is reduced, you are able to get a better fit for your dentures. Our Charlotte dentist will also reduce them in the case of ulcers or irritation. This procedure can help you enjoy comfortable, snug fitting restorations.
