I’ve been a loyal patient at this dental practice since the ’80s, and my recent annual cleaning reaffirmed why. Cindy, the dental hygienist, provided exceptional care. Her gentle touch and genuine concern for my comfort made the cleaning a breeze. I’ve always received top-notch service here, and Cindy’s expertise is a shining example of their commitment to patient satisfaction. Highly recommend this practice for their outstanding staff and long-standing dedication to dental health.
Avoid Long-Term Smile Issues With the Help of Surgical Procedures
Our team works hard to provide each patient with a great dental experience, which includes any dental surgery procedure. We have honed our skills, so you can get your surgical procedure by a team you know. It’s our goal that you won’t have to travel to an outside oral surgeon. At our practice, we’ll fully explain your dental care in detail. You’ll know what we’re doing and what to expect. Here are some types of oral surgery that we routinely perform:
- Tooth Extractions – We’ll always try to save a patient’s tooth whenever possible. However, if a diseased or damaged tooth is unrepairable or may cause problems with other teeth, it should be removed. Protecting your long-term oral health is more important. We’ll remove the tooth as quickly and comfortably as possible.
- Wisdom Teeth Removal – These “third molars” usually begin to appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Some patients have no issues with wisdom teeth. For others, these teeth erupt in the wrong position or at the wrong angle and crowd your other teeth. In those cases, removal becomes necessary.
- Bone Grafts – After we remove one or more teeth, we can perform a bone graft to rebuild the jaw ridge where the tooth was. Your dentist will place bone material in your jaw to stimulate the growth of new bone material. In a few months, your jaw in that area will be stronger and ready for tooth replacement.
