Dental Extractions
Dental extractions at Benicia Oral Surgery are quick and easy. The dedicated team provides optimal comfort anytime you need a tooth extracted. From a damaged tooth, to impacted wisdom teeth, trust the oral surgeons at Benicia Oral Surgery to provide the best possible care.

Socket Preservation
After an extraction or before a dental implant procedure you might need socket preservation treatment to build up your jawbone. Also known as a bone graft, the Benicia Oral Surgery team knows the importance a healthy jawbone means to your oral health. A socket preservation is a quick and minimally invasive procedure.
An alveoloplasty is a simple procedure to reshape your jawbone in preparation for a number of dental prosthetics. The experts at Benicia Oral Surgery make sure your jaw is contoured so your jaw will fit whatever prosthetic you desire. This procedure is also often performed after a tooth extraction to smooth bone spurs.

Tori Removal
Torus palatinus (upper) is a bony protrusion on the palate. Torus mandibularis (lower) is a bony growth in the mandible along the surface nearest to the tongue. They are often uncomfortable and a nuisance if you wear a dental appliance such as dentures and affect your oral hygiene. Fortunately, the team of experts at Benicia Oral Surgery offers safe and effective tori removal.
An unusual growth in your mouth or throat can be unsettling. Come into the Benicia Oral Surgery office at the first sign of anything unusual. The team of oral surgeons are experts in cyst removals and biopsies of suspicious tissues.

Grid & Chain
Sometimes cuspids and canines get impacted and don’t emerge the way they should. These teeth are important to your overall health so necessary steps need to be taken to ensure they grow in correctly. Benicia Oral Surgery offers grid & chain therapy to quickly and safely treat your impacted canines.
Jaw Fractures
Jaw fractures are some of the most serious bone breaks you can suffer from. Fortunately, the dedicated team at Benicia Oral Surgery has years of experience treating even the most serious of jaw fractures. If you suspect a break in your jaw, contact the office immediately.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are a state-of-the-art treatment option for a missing tooth or teeth. The skilled team at Benicia Oral Surgery implant a titanium rod into your jawbone which acts as an artificial tooth root. Dental options provide a sturdy base for dental crowns or even full sets of dentures.

Katy R.

The staff was friendly and made me feel at ease. I had all four of my wisdoms taken out and I’m on day two with minimal pain. They did a good job. Shout out to nurse Jessi. I Don’t normally like nurses, but she’s a good one.

Corinne J.

Adriana was helpful and friendly. The Dr., his assistant and the nurse were very comforting and made the experience great for my husband. I have had several dental procedures and wish I would have had them, maybe i wouldnt be so traumatized.

A difficult extraction was efficient, painstaking and as painless as possible. I cannot recommend them too highly! Thanks so much!
