For many adults, there is simply not enough room in the jaw for a third set of molars. Consequently, these wisdom teeth can cause significant discomfort and trigger a cascade of oral health problems. Dr. Hopkin can remove your molars in one short appointment with the level of sedative you prefer before they cause serious issues.
Whether patients require a single dental implant or the All-on-4® option to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, Dr. Hopkin uses cutting-edge 3D imaging equipment which allows him to precisely plan and perform implant placement. Our oral surgeon can also combine a bone grafting procedure to reinforce a compromised jawbone during dental implant surgery so patients can enjoy their implants as soon as possible.
Maxillofacial surgery, or surgery to treat the jaws and face, can be necessary for many reasons, including treating TMJ disorder, correcting severe dental misalignment, treating traumatic jaw injuries, removing potentially harmful growths, and more. Dr. Hopkin is highly trained in maxillofacial surgery and uses his skills to provide Salt Lake City with relief from jaw pain and discomfort.
Many Americans avoid dental work because it makes them anxious. Dr. Hopkin understands this anxiety, and that is why we happily provide sedation options, including nitrous oxide and intravenous methods, to all qualifying patients. If you would like to learn more about how we make oral surgery less intimidating for nervous patients, please contact our office today.

You may be wondering if you need the service of a dentist or an oral surgeon. Generally, patients are referred to oral surgeons by dentists when the scope of care exceeds the dentist's training. When we receive referrals from dentists in the Salt Lake City area, we are able to communicate and work closely with them to ensure the patient gets excellent continuity of care.
However, if you know you need wisdom tooth removal, if you are curious about dental implants, or if you are interested in any of our other services, feel free to contact us directly without a referral from a dentist.
