Oral Surgery

Porter Dental Center is Lockport’s established provider of dental surgery.

At Porter Dental Center, our team of expert dentists has the experience and compassion to make dental surgery safe, comfortable, and pain-free for patients like you. We’ve helped people from all across the Lockport area get the relief they need, whether it’s wisdom tooth extraction, oral trauma, dental implants, or bone and tissue grafting.

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 quickly so you can get back to life. Whether you’ve suffered a facial fracture or jaw damage, 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 so that dental implants may be placed. If you need dental implants but don't have enough healthy bone tissue for support, our surgeons can tell you if bone grafting might be a good option for you.

Soft tissue grafting

Soft tissue grafts are also known as gum grafts; they restore gum tissue around teeth or implants to protect them while providing an aesthetic improvement. If your gums have receded due to periodontal disease, aging, or oral trauma, our dentists will let you know if soft tissue grafting could help improve your smile. Consult with an oral surgery expert at Porter Dental Center.

When it comes time for your consultation, we want you to feel confident that you're making decisions about your smile with experts. That's why we use state-of-the-art technology, like an iTero® Element scanner, to create digital models of your teeth and gums. No matter what procedure you need, we'll help you find the relief you want. Call today to schedule an appointment with one our skilled providers.

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 Porter Dental Center, we will make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth before they become a more difficult and painful problem -- and to avoid a more complicated surgery. Whether your wisdom teeth have emerged or not, we offer a variety of sedation types to meet any need and ensure that your experience is comfortable and pain-free.
