While we focus on helping you maintain your teeth for a lifetime, sometimes certain teeth need to be removed. Wisdom teeth, extra teeth, or very crowded teeth present situations that may mean treatment involving removal. In some cases, severely decayed or cracked teeth, or those missing large amounts of supporting bone leave extraction as the only viable option.
We always consider your comfort regardless of the type of care you're receiving. We'll discuss your unique situation specifically to determine the best way to help you receive the treatment you need. Few patients look forward to any minor surgical procedure, but today's methods provide the safest, least invasive care possible.
The bone around your teeth is highly specialized and doesn't regenerate when it's lost. Your teeth rely on this bony foundation to remain stable and functional, and even small defects can compromise your ability to maintain a tooth. Sometimes we can repair these defects by adding bone grafting materials.
Every time you're in our chair, we review many aspects of your health. Subtle changes in the lining of your mouth call for a closer evaluation, regardless of whether you use tobacco or not. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives every year, and we're trained to recognize a myriad of oral tissue abnormalities.
Minor surgical procedures sometimes help treat problems in your mouth. Defects in the bone or compromised supporting gum tissue may sometimes undergo repair with precise surgical techniques. And quick biopsy techniques can help us learn what's behind changes in the lining of your mouth.
