Compassionate Care for All Your Oral Surgery Needs

Finding a skilled oral surgeon to care for you or your family can be a challenge. If you’re looking for care in the Bristol, CT area, we offer a variety of treatment options to help resolve painful problems with your teeth and jaw joint, treat cysts and severe infections like abscesses, and help restore patients with failing dental health to full function. We can provide:

If you’re looking for a skilled implant dentist near you, our oral surgery team can give you unparalleled results. In fact, we’re so proficient that our implant center is the top producer of dental implants for Husky patients in the state of Connecticut. Whether you need a single tooth replacement or full mouth dental implants, our skilled oral surgeon Dr. Ean James will provide you with a beautiful, functional smile for years to come.

Wisdom teeth have the potential to cause serious problems for your oral health. They can cause other teeth to shift, trap bacteria and lead to infections, and impacted wisdom teeth can even damage your jaw. As your oral surgeon, Dr. James will ensure your complete comfort and precise technique for your wisdom tooth extractions

Sometimes a root canal treatment leaves inflammation or residual infection near the tip of a tooth root. An oral surgeon may need to remove the end of the root (its apex) and some of the inflamed tissue, while leaving the rest of the tooth in place. Also known as root end treatment, apicoectomy is a very common procedure to salvage infected teeth.

As your jaws developed, they may not have grown to meet correctly or accommodate your teeth. Your oral surgeon will create a more functional relationship between your jaws and frequently work with an orthodontist to straighten the teeth. This surgery can treat the pain and lack of function that comes with developmental jaw problems.

A cyst is a fluid filled sac or growth, which can include irregular patches of skin. Abscesses form when an infection goes untreated and grows in an enclosed area. Regardless of what growths or infections you’re dealing with, we have the skill and equipment to remove them with precision to speed your healing. We always recommend testing any removed growths to make sure they won’t develop into other concerns.

Part of creating an ideal foundation for dental implants, a sinus lift creates better bone volume to support the teeth and implants for the top dental arch. The maxillary sinuses are hollows in the bone of your just above the roof of your mouth. For many people, this bone is very thing, meaning there may not be enough to support upper implants. Fortunately, Dr. James has the advanced training to gently manipulate the sinus membrane and add bone tissue to the area. In some cases, the sinus lift and implant placement can be performed as a single procedure.

If you’ve been missing teeth for a while, your body will start to absorb the unused bone that used to support those teeth, decreasing the foundation for dental implants. Fortunately, bone grafting allows us to add support where it is needed so that we ensure ideal, long-lasting dental implant results for full function and ideal esthetics.

The pain and loss of function that comes with TMJ disorders can be disruptive to how you live your life. The jaw joint (temporomandibular joint or TMJ) may click, grind, ache, or even lock up. Fortunately, we have the technology to intervene and help relieve many of these symptoms through a variety of surgical approaches to ensure better function and comfort for you and prevent more serious conditions.
