Oral Surgery

Trust us, you’re in good hands

If you’ve been a patient of any other dentist in the Belleville area, and required any sort of oral surgery procedure, you likely would have been referred out to an oral surgeon specialist – aka some other doctor that doesn’t know you or your case. Dr. Ryan Yakowicz at Neighborhood Smiles is one of the only general dentists in the Belleville area that can perform oral surgery in-house.


Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp or tooth roots. The most common endodontic procedure is the dreaded root canal. Thankfully, with advances in modern dental science, a root canal is nothing to fear. Root canals today are a routine and fairly painless procedure – we will go in and remove the infection, sanitize and fill the chamber to prevent further infection, and seal the tooth with a crown.

Bone grafting

If you’ve suffered from tooth loss and have experienced deterioration or atrophy of the underlying jawbone, you may require a bone graft in order to support a dental implant. The term bone graft makes many patients hesitant, but rest assured, bone grafting is a routine, painless procedure with predictable outcomes. A bone graft will help maximize the success of a dental implant.


If you have a tooth that is badly damaged by decay, disease, or trauma, and is past the point of repair, or if you have wisdom teeth that are affecting your oral health – you may require an extraction. Don’t worry, extractions are a routine, painless procedure with predictable outcomes. And once healed, we have plenty of tooth replacement options to get your smile back to its fully functioning state.

If you are in need of oral surgery, and are looking for a general dentist to perform all of your dental treatments in-house, you’ve come to the right place. If you would like to schedule a consultation with your Belleville oral surgeon, Dr. Yakowicz at Neighborhood Smiles, please contact us today at (608) 424-3222.
