Had an excellent experience today! My dental assistant Sahayla cleaned my teeth quickly and thoroughly, and the hygienist Darika did an awesome job on my whitening. Dr. Phillips checked me out and made sure I was all good. Least painful visit I've ever had in my life!

What Can Oral Surgery Address?

Stubbs Dental in Layton, UT, Lehi, UT, Murray, UT, and Bountiful, UT, can provide the care you need to improve your smile and oral and overall health. Common oral issues that can be addressed by a surgeon include:

Missing Teeth

Are embarrassed with the appearance of your smile due to the gaps left by missing teeth? Do you hide when it comes time to take a photo with friends or family? Besides having a significant impact on your self-esteem, living with tooth loss can cause issues including difficulty eating and speaking clearly. Fortunately, at Stubbs Dental, our maxillofacial surgeon can replace any number of missing teeth with a dental implant-supported restoration.

Bone Loss

Tooth loss, gum disease, smoking, and certain medical conditions such as osteoporosis can lead to weakened bone tissue in the jaw. Jawbone atrophy can alter your facial features, cause difficulty speaking and eating, and cause facial and jaw pain. Left untreated, bone loss can eventually lead to tooth loss. If you have suffered from significant bone loss in your jawbone, maxillofacial surgery can restore lost tissue with bone grafting.

Compromised Teeth

When wisdom teeth become impacted, they can cause a host of painful symptoms. In severe cases, an impacted tooth can lead to an infection that can compromise your overall health. Trauma and tooth decay can also weaken a tooth to the extent that the best option to improve your oral health is extraction. Whether it's impacted wisdom teeth or a tooth that is too far gone to save, extraction can provide relief.

I had a lack of self-confidence for a really long time because of my smile. I felt that whenever I would smile people always would look at my teeth so it made me not want to smile. Now I'm 31 years old I have that confidence that people have had for many years. Is it it's because of stubs Dental that I have this confidence in myself again. Than you Dr. K and your staff. Thank you.

Great experience. I love the 'comfort menu' you have to choose from to make the experience even better. I watched a show on netflix while I had a neck pillow and at the end a hot wash cloth to clean my face. Love it! Dentists are profession, fun and very knowledgeable. Assistants were very help and made me feel comfortable.

Common Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeries

Tooth Extractions

Our dentists make every effort to save compromised teeth with treatments such as dental crowns and root canal therapy. However, when a tooth is severely compromised, an extraction may be the only solution to protect adjacent teeth and maintain your oral health. Wisdom teeth can also become impacted, necessitating the need for extraction.

Bone Grafting

Bone resorption is a natural side effect of tooth loss but it can make some patients ineligible for dental implants. Bone grafting surgery is most often used to improve your candidacy for implants if you have lived with missing teeth for a considerable amount of time. Bone grafting can also guard against bone loss when it is performed immediately following an extraction. 

Explore Bone Grafting

Sinus Lift

Your natural anatomy or significant bone loss can cause your maxillary sinuses to be too close to your upper jaw to safely support a dental implant. A sinus lift can reposition your sinus membrane and add bone tissue, restoring your candidacy for dental implant placement.

Dental Implants

At Stubbs Dental, serving all of Utah, our oral surgeons can perform every step to rejuvenate your smile with dental implants. Our comprehensive services include extracting failing teeth, performing bone grafts and sinus lifts, and placing dental implants. We can address any number of missing teeth with an implanted supported crown, bridge, or denture.

All-on-4®

Certain patients with complete tooth loss and compromised jaw bone density may not want to undergo the process of restoring their candidacy with bone grafting and sinus lifts. For those that qualify, All-on-4 can provide an implant-supported denture that is placed on four strategically located dental implant posts.
