Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Dr. Anoosheh Shahkarami and her team understand the idea of surgery makes many people feel a little nervous. Patients are more comfortable receiving that care in a familiar setting from dental professionals they know and trust. Patients of SoCalSmiles Dental Office in Tarzana, CA have access to oral and maxillofacial surgery on site.


When restoration is not possible due to infection or a large area of decay or damage, extraction of the tooth can be in the best interest of your health. We provide a low-stress experience where your comfort is top priority. Our dentists also provide a range of tooth replacement options – dental implants, bridges, and dentures – to restore your smile.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Tarzana

Wisdom teeth

Third molars come in last. While we guide patients toward the most conservative treatment possible, sometimes there isn’t room for wisdom teeth. They crowd healthy teeth or become impacted, not fully emerging through bone and soft tissue. In most cases, extractions can be handled in our office. If your situation is complex, we will recommend a reputable specialist.

Bone grafting

Dental implants are today’s gold standard in long-term tooth replacement. However, there must be sufficient jawbone for successful implantation. Modern bone grafting techniques make dental implants possible for many patients who would not have been good candidates in the past. Our dentists utilize several augmentation materials, including:

  • Allograft, or cadaver bone.
  • Alloplast, bone created from synthetic materials.
  • Autograft, your own bone from a donor site.
  • Xenograft, bone taken from an animal (usually bovine).

Jaw surgery

In some cases, surgery is necessary to correct abnormal jaw growth, address TMJ disorders, or improve denture fit. We work closely with a trusted oral surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome from the procedure.

Most patients never need oral and maxillofacial surgery. If you ever do, though, isn’t it nice to know the team at SoCalSmiles Dental Office is close by in Tarzana? Call (818) 210-3885 to become a patient.
