Oral Surgery

Surgery Doesn’t Have to Be Scary

Do you need oral surgery? Come see Dr. Ramon Bana in Miami!

Nobody loves the thought of surgery, but sometimes it has to happen for the good of your health. If you need tooth extraction, dental implants, crown lengthening, bone or gum grafting, or full mouth reconstruction, Miami Sedation & Cosmetic Surgery is here with a comprehensive mix of surgical options in a compassionate, caring environment. We offer sedation dentistry options for the highest level of patient comfort.


Why do teeth need to come out?

Dr. Bana will do everything they can to help you keep your natural teeth in your mouth—as long as those teeth are healthy and not contributing to any problems with your other teeth, jaw, and gums. The majority of people have wisdom teeth that need to be pulled in their late teens and early 20s, but there are many other reasons teeth may need to be extracted.

A common expression is “it’s like pulling teeth,” and nobody mistakes that for being a fun thing. Dr. Bana and the Miami Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry team have the tools and techniques to provide safe, convenient extractions in the comfort of your dental home with us. It might not be so bad after all!

Common Reasons for Teeth Extraction

  • Damage beyond repair
  • Severe gum disease
  • Infection from severe decay
  • Trauma, injury, or accident
  • To make room & correct crowding

Implant Placement

The first step toward dental implants is surgical placement of the implant post or posts.

Dr. Bana does both implant placement and restoration at Miami Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry, so we offer a full array of implant services and procedures, all under one convenient, relaxed roof. For more details, please check out our dental implants page.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Have to be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to develop, which means their location towards the back of the mouth makes them especially hard to reach or clean.

In some cases, they can become impacted within the jaw or only erupt partially, making them prone to infection. When decay or gum disease develop, the adjacent teeth suffer as well. Wisdom teeth removal in Miami, FL may be an essential step to ensuring the best overall health for the rest of your smile.

During your exam, Ramon Bona, DDS will order a panoramic X-ray to evaluate the size, positioning, and development of your wisdom teeth.

How to Know if Your Wisdom Teeth Need to be Taken Out

Some of the things we look for before suggesting wisdom teeth removal in Miami, FL include:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Periodontal disease
  • Active decay
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Partial eruption
  • Pressure on adjacent teeth

After Your Surgery

Plan to stick to a soft diet for several days.

Do not plan to work or drive right away, as some people need a long weekend or up to a full week or more to recover. Dr. Bana will provide you with written home care instructions so that you know what to expect leading up to and following the procedure.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

There’s always hope for your smile, with or without teeth.

There are millions of edentulous adults in the United States–about 23 million with no teeth at all and about 12 million with a full arch of teeth missing, with elderly folks making up a 2:1 ratio of those numbers.

Full mouth reconstruction means Miami Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry rebuild your smile from the ground up, just like building a house. Whether it takes implants, dentures, oral surgery, or any combination of dental procedures, you can get a brand-new smile here with us. Dr. Bana will work with you, taking your dental case, your budget, and your lifestyle into account, and draw up a treatment plan to bring your smile back, good as new!

Crown Lengthening

If your teeth are small or there’s not enough of your natural crown left above the gum line to anchor a dental restoration, crown lengthening is a restorative surgical procedure that can save your healthy tooth root, eliminating the need for tooth extraction and preparing the tooth for a crown. We want to preserve your natural smile for as long as possible, and a successful crown can help you eat, speak, and laugh with ease again.

Crown Lengthening vs. Gum Contouring: What’s the Difference?

Gum contouring is more cosmetic than restorative—it is meant to shape the gums and make them more aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical. It is a routine procedure that Dr. Bana can perform. For more information about gum contouring, visit our cosmetic dentistry page.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-prosthetic surgery is sometimes needed prior to the placement of dental implants, implant-supported dentures, fixed bridges, or even traditional prosthetic dentures.

The jawbone needs to be the proper size and strength to successfully support and replace missing teeth, whether the artificial teeth are fixed or removable. Pre-prosthetic surgery enhances form and function, can remove excess bone and include tooth extraction, and improves overall strength as well as the likelihood for a successful outcome. Without pre-prosthetic surgery, many patients would not be favorable implant candidates.

Bone & Gum Grafting are Pre-Prosthetic Surgeries

  • Gum grafting supplements lost gum tissue, protects exposed tooth roots, and saves teeth from extraction
  • Bone grafting supplements the jawbone after atrophy, which helps maintain integrity of the facial structure, alignment, and bite.
  • Your Miami dentist can do them all!

Chao Pinhole® Technique for Gum Recession

This revolutionary gum recession treatment is minimally invasive, with no cutting or sewing needed. Rather than gum grafting or other invasive surgery, specialized instruments are used to guide the gums’ movement, using an entry point about the size of a pinhole. Gums are moved gently and stabilized with collagen strips for a several hours, often healing as quickly as overnight. There are no sutures or sore spots to mar your smile or your mood, and Dr. Bana performs the Chao Pinhole Technique right there at Miami Sedation and Cosmetic Dentistry.
