At Landmark Dental Care, our team of expert dentists has the experience and compassion to make oral surgery safe, comfortable, and pain-free for patients like you. From wisdom tooth extraction to oral trauma, dental implants, or bone and tissue grafting, we’ve helped people from all across the Floyds Knobs area get the relief they need.

Wisdom tooth removal

Wisdom teeth first appear for most people in their late teens and can lead to a variety of issues, including pain, infection, and swelling of the mouth. Removing them is a common surgical procedure that most people undergo to enjoy a lifetime of healthier teeth. Our dentists have the experience and care to ensure your wisdom tooth extraction, from diagnosis to healing, is as gentle and efficient as possible.

Oral trauma

From sports injuries to accidents at home or out in the world, traumatic dental events can happen at any time. Our oral surgeons can repair these injuries and get you back to life. Whether you’ve suffered a facial fracture, jaw damage, or any other trauma to the mouth and teeth, we’re here for you with the latest technology and unrivaled experience.

Bone grafting

A dental bone graft is a surgery performed to increase and strengthen the natural bone in your jaw. It is usually done so that dental implants can be placed. If you need dental implants, our surgeons can determine if bone grafting is necessary to restore the functionality and appearance of your smile.

Soft tissue grafting

Soft tissue grafts, also known as gum grafts, restore the gum tissue around teeth or implants to protect the teeth and provide a healthier appearance. If you’ve lost gum tissue due to periodontal disease, aging, or oral trauma, our dentists can tell you if a soft tissue graft is a good option for you.

Local Anesthesia

Depending on the dental procedure, your dentist may determine that you only need a relatively small area to be numbed during surgery so that your visit is comfortable and pain-free. There are two kinds of numbing injections

When performing oral procedures that require numbing, dentists employ two kinds of local anesthesia, block injections, which numbs an entire region of your mouth, such as one side of your lower jaw, and infiltration injections, which numb a smaller area.

Surgical Extractions

Sometimes trauma, gum disease, cracked or broken teeth, and tooth decay can be too significant, and despite our best efforts to save the tooth, extractions may be the best option. Here at Landmark Dental Care, we will make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
