The dental care received here (oral surgery) was a very positive experience in a very positive atmosphere. The surgery was expertly performed and the actual surgical time needed was very short. Well worth the drive from Titusville to their office in the Cocoa Village area. Highly recommended. My highest marks to DR. Bird and his experienced team. Thank you :)

Everyone is so nice and they Dr. Bird did an awesome job with a really difficult removal even though I was pregnant, they made sure I was comfy and even gave me a super soft blanket and I didn't feel a thing the whole procedure. The prices were also very reasonable. I plan on coming here for all of my extractions in the future. Thanks a ton!!

Our Featured Procedures

Dental implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered the best way to replace missing teeth. Our surgeons place these titanium posts in the jawbone where they act as artificial tooth roots. Implants provide superior stability for lifelike restorations such as dentures, crowns, or bridges. Secondly, the implants encourage healthy jawbone growth, preventing the bone deterioration and weakening that can occur where teeth are missing.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

These "third molars" start to break through our gums when we hit our late teens or early twenties. Unfortunately, these teeth can sometimes grow in crooked or sideways, or even get trapped in your jaw or below the gum. Known as impacted wisdom teeth, this can shift surrounding teeth out of alignment or cause painful infections. Dr. Johnson or Dr. Bird can perform extractions as a preventative measure. 

Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Sometimes a patient who needs dental implants can not receive them because they do not have enough healthy jawbone to support the titanium posts. In this case, our vastly trained oral surgeons can take a section of your remaining healthy jaw tissue and graft it where it is needed to support an implant. After the graft heals, implants can be placed and restorations can be attached to complete your smile.

I would like to thank Dr. Bird and Johnson's office for getting me in on a same day appointment. I thought everyone at the office was wonderful. I had a tooth removed and the process was very smooth. They explained the process and helped ease my anxiety.

If anyone needs and oral surgery procedure I would highly recommend this office.

Our Oral Surgeons Can Give You Your Smile Back

This patient came to our practice to replace missing teeth that made it awkward to smile and difficult to eat, chew, and speak properly. After undergoing surgery to place dental implants and receiving natural-looking dentures, our patient's smile and oral functions were restored.

Take a Look at the Dental Implant Procedure

Although this surgery may look uncomfortable, our practice offers calming nitrous oxide and IV sedation to keep you deeply relaxed and pain-free during the procedure. Sedation can eliminate discomfort and leave you with very little memory of the experience.
