Why Should I Go to an Oral Surgeon?
Oral surgeons offer a level of care that a regular dentist simply can't match:
Becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon requires additional years of hospital-based training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Edwards, Dr. Backeris and Dr. Blundell 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.
Our Expert Team Ensures Patient Safety and Comfort
Each member of our expert team is CPR certified and aims to provide the finest care possible at our offices in Land O' Lakes, South Tampa, and Valrico. The friendly surgical coordinators at Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa are experienced in several areas and certified to assist in the administration of IV sedation and surgery.
Our patient care extends to all parts of your visit. Our informed administrative personnel is incredibly knowledgeable in health and insurance policies in order to help patients take full advantage of their benefits. This allows patients to both receive the care they need and keep out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum.

From Valrico to Land O'Lakes Florida Patients Are Glad they Chose Us
Dr Jason Edwards and his team was awesome! They are professional, nice and made me feel at ease. I had tooth implant surgery on tooth #12 (which is almost to the front) and they were able to extract my tooth, do some bone grafting and insert the post all in one procedure. This reduced the entire procedure process from being 6 months long to 3 months long. I followed their post surgical care instructions and within 10 days my stitches were removed and I had no infection. Honestly, it went a lot smoother than expected and would highly recommend them.View on Google
We could not be more pleased with our experience. The entire team listened to my concerns and made immediate arrangements to take care of me.
I found everyone kind and very reassuring.
This procedure was giving me tremendous anxiety but Dr. Tom took time and explained everything and helped me relax.
I highly recommend them!!!!
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. To learn more, call:
A Tampa-Area Practice That Makes You a Part of the Team
Had my first visit today for a wisdom teeth removal consult. From the moment I walked in the staff was very inviting, kind, and welcoming.
I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to dental work and this is the first office where I felt at ease and everything was explained to me thoroughly. They helped me create a plan that works for me financially and and put most of my fears/worries to rest!
Will definitely be returning to them for all of my major dental work!
Wow. The personnel is wonderful. Dr Edwards was so professional with explaining everything to my daughter. He gave her choices and wanted to know what her opinion was. He included all of us in the decision making process. We feel so lucky that we found this group. We have not had the work done yet because he asked us to have a look with another dentist to try to save a tooth instead of extracting it. That in itself is comforting that he cares for her well being and best options. We will be back in a few weeks to get the work done and so exited to have found a compassionate team that takes their time with their patients.View on Google
Other Featured Services
Wisdom Teeth Removal
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.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
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.
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.

Honestly, the best experience I have ever had. The doctor and Mel were the sweetest and made me feel so comfortable. I have never had surgery before and I had to get my impacted wisdom teeth extracted asap. They explained everything to me and even got me in as soon as they opened for a same day consultation and surgery. I am definitely recommending them to everyone I know.View on Google
