Oral Surgery

Welcome to Black Point Dental, your premier destination for exceptional oral surgery services in Honolulu, HI. Under the expert care of Dr. Ferguson, a highly esteemed member of the Hawaii Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the American Board of Oral Implantology, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal oral health.

Oral surgery is vital for addressing various dental issues, such as dental decay, broken teeth, jawbone loss, impacted teeth, and gum disease.

At Black Point Dental, we understand that each patient's needs are unique, which is why Dr. Ferguson and our dedicated team will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Our range of oral surgery options includes bone grafting and tooth extractions, ensuring that you receive the most effective care possible.

Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction is a procedure in which a significantly damaged or decayed tooth is entirely removed from its socket. Dr. Ferguson may suggest this procedure to prevent harm to neighboring teeth when dental decay cannot be resolved with fillings or crowns. 

Typically, tooth extraction is carried out under local anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort throughout the process. More sedation options can be discussed for enhanced comfort during the procedure.

At Black Point Dental in Honolulu, HI, our experienced staff prioritizes restorative treatments to preserve your natural teeth before considering tooth extraction. If the decay is too severe, Dr. Ferguson will discuss tooth replacement options with you once the extraction is completed.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. These teeth are located in the back of the mouth and can cause various oral health issues if they do not grow properly. 

There are a few different common issues that can arise when your wisdom teeth come in. For some people, their wisdom teeth come in with no issue, while others may face problems when their wisdom teeth come in. 

  1. Impaction: Impacted wisdom teeth occur when there isn't enough room in the mouth for the tooth to emerge. This can lead to pain, swelling, and infection.
  2. Infection: An impacted wisdom tooth can create an environment for bacteria to thrive, leading to infection and potential damage to adjacent teeth.
  3. Crowding: When wisdom teeth emerge, they can push against other teeth, causing misalignment and discomfort.

Dental Bone Grafting

Dental bone grafting is a surgical procedure that aims to rebuild or regenerate lost bone in the jaw, often necessary for successful dental implant placement. It involves the transplantation of bone tissue or bone substitutes to the affected area to stimulate growth and provide a stable foundation for implants. 

This procedure is typically required when there is insufficient bone mass due to tooth loss, gum disease, or previous extractions. By rebuilding the jawbone, dental bone grafting enhances the chances of successful dental implant integration and improves overall oral health.

For patients considering dental implants, bone grafting may be necessary to ensure a successful procedure.
