Take a Tour of Our Office
Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa is committed to providing you with the best and most personalized care possible. Drs. Jason Edwards and Thomas Backeris perform a wide scope of oral and maxillofacial procedures in our state-of-the-art offices.
Why Should I Go to an Oral Surgeon?
Becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon requires additional years of hospital-based training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Edwards and Dr. Backeris have completed this rigorous training, enabling them to manage a wide variety of concerns relating to the mouth, teeth, and jaws. For example, oral surgeons can diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
General dentists can provide routine dental care, but advanced cases like tooth extraction, implant placement, or treatment of TMJ disorders often require the expertise of a trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The technology, anesthesia, and advanced techniques used by our surgeons set us apart from general dentists, and we genuinely care for every one of our patients.

Other Featured Services
Most people require wisdom tooth extraction at some point in their lives. Our surgeons are specialists at removing the third molars, including more complex cases and impacted teeth. A combination of anesthesia and gentle methods ensures our patients experience a comfortable extraction procedure.
To help patients enjoy virtually pain-free treatment, every member of our team is trained to safely administer intravenous (IV) sedation. IV sedation acts quickly, produces a highly relaxed state, and can be adjusted throughout the procedure to ensure patients receive safe and comfortable care.
A full mouth reconstruction is a custom-designed plan that can address multiple cosmetic and restorative issues at once. If you have several teeth that are broken, decayed, or missing, we can coordinate with your dentist to combine two or more procedures and totally reconstruct your bite and smile.
Many patients require bone grafting before they can qualify for dental implant placement or other types of oral and maxillofacial surgery. If the jawbone has become too weak, a bone graft can strengthen the jaw using your own healthy, natural bone tissue.
Do you have a knocked out tooth? We may be able to save it through a tooth transplant. Bring the tooth with you to our office, but preserve it by keeping it moist and avoiding contact with the root. This emergency treatment is fairly unique to our practice and can help you avoid more invasive, costly procedures.

You Don't Have to Live with Missing Teeth
Missing teeth not only detract from your confidence. Even just a single missing tooth negatively affects your oral and overall health. This common condition can prevent you from eating healthy foods and cause the bone tissue in your jaw to atrophy, resulting in a weaker bite and aged facial features.
Whether you already suffer from missing teeth or need to undergo restorative treatment to preserve your smile, the surgeons at Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa can meet your needs.
