Meet Your Oral Surgeon

When he is not treating patients, Dr. Minto enjoys spending time on the water.
Our Treatment Options
Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides a full range of oral surgery solutions. Some of our most common treatments include:
We meet many patients who have either lost teeth or anticipate having teeth removed. When teeth are pulled, it is crucial to replace them ASAP in order to prevent further bone deterioration. Dental implants represent a secure and convenient way to restore your smile.
Many patients wind up at the oral surgeon’s office because their wisdom teeth have come in and are causing them pain. Wisdom teeth are usually dealt with best through extraction. Dr. Minto has ample experience extracting wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are not the only ones that may need to be pulled. Any tooth can become so damaged or broken that it can no longer be fixed. In these situations, extraction is the best way forward. Dr. Minto can perform both simple and surgical tooth extractions.
When teeth are lost, it may cause a loss in bone tissue. This can cause the face to take on a sunken appearance, and it may also make dental implants less feasible. The answer is to restore the lost bone, something that can be done through a procedure called bone grafting.
Patients in Gulf Shores, AL, seeking dental implants may require a sinus lift to create enough bone for a secure fit. Those who experience bone loss in their upper jaw can rely on Minto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to raise their sinus floor and add the bone necessary for proper dental implant placement.
