Couldn't have asked for a better wisdom tooth removal experience. Went in, went to sleep, and woke up 20 min later with almost no pain and a surprisingly cheap receipt. 5 stars

Why Should I Go to an Oral Surgeon?

Advanced Training

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.

Specialized Care

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.


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.  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 receive the care they need while keeping out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum. 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.

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.

I give Dr Edwards and his assistants a 10. So friendly, making sure you have no pain, answering all your questions and they check up on you once your home. This is my 2nd implant and I would recommend them 100 per cent.

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.

Learn More about Wisdom Teeth Removal

IV Sedation

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.

Learn More About Sedation Dentistry

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.

Bone Grafting

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.

Learn More about Bone Grafting

Tooth Transplant

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.

This place was great. They ever able to fit me in quick and easy check in. Every single person was great, easygoing and made me feel so relaxed. The oral surgeon was great and the assistants were fantastic. For something that supposed to be a horrible experience, they made it as pleasant as possible. Great convo and good music. If you have to have your surgery, might as well have it here. I wish I could give them more stars.

Dr. Edwards was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and the surgery was very smooth, quick and painless. The ambient music was amazing! I truly enjoyed listening to James Brown while the doctor was performing the surgery! It was the most comfortable and memorable experience I have ever had at a dentist office in my life. Thank you again Dr. Edwards!

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.
