On-Site Oral Surgery
Vital Smiles Georgia proudly offers oral surgery. Dr. Tarver, our on-site oral surgeon, performs basic surgical procedures like root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, fillings, and crowns in a comfortable, non-threatening environment.
We offer a consultation before the surgery, so you can ask questions, and we can explain the process to you.
Before your child’s surgery begins, he or she will receive sleepy juice,an anesthesia used to numb the teeth and gums during any surgical procedure. This kind of “conscious sedation” safely helps your child relax. To further ensure your child’s comfort, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and IV Sedation for oral surgery.
