So, what exactly does oral surgery address? 

Dental Implants

Are you missing teeth? Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots to support a crown or bridge. This results in restored functionality and a complete smile that looks/feels completely natural!

Bone Grafting

Tooth loss, trauma, or illness can all contribute to bone loss. Bone grafting rebuilds bone tissue using artificial bone-like material to create a strong foundation for implants and other dental restorations.


Our goal is always to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. That’s why we perform procedures like root canals – to remove infection and preserve the tooth. Sometimes, a tooth just cannot be saved. Whether it’s an impaction causing discomfort or a deeply infected tooth, Dr. Ma will ensure a gentle and efficient extraction process.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, also called your third molars, generally erupt in your late teens or early 20s and can cause pain, overcrowding, and misalignment, especially if they partially erupt or become impacted. Ignoring the irritation can cause serious complications down the line, so it’s best to remove them as soon as possible if they’re causing issues.

What to Expect

First, we’ll have you come in for a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Ma. He’ll discuss your concerns, explore treatment options, and answer any questions you might have. Next, he’ll walk you through the specific procedure and explain what to expect during recovery. Nervous? We offer various anesthesia and sedation options to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it hurt? 

We prioritize pain management and offer various anesthesia options to minimize discomfort.

How long will recovery take? 

Recovery times vary depending on the procedure, but Dr. Ma will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. You may feel slightly tender for a day or 2 following most oral surgery but full recovery for dental implants, for example, can take up to 6 months for the implant and jaw bone to fuse.

What about my dental insurance? 

We’ll happily work with your insurance provider to maximize your coverage. We provide transparent pricing prior to sending the bill through to your insurance so you can decide whether to take out a payment plan or use your available benefits.
