Dentistry has come a long way over the years. In the past, problem teeth were not treated but rather pulled. Many people had lost all their teeth by midlife. Today, dentists offer preventative care, which can help you avoid or reduce the risk of dental problems. When a problem does occur, we have advanced technology, dental lasers, and other tools so that we can offer the most conservative treatments possible. However, more invasive treatments may still be needed in some cases. Oral surgery may be necessary if you have an impacted tooth, a severely diseased or damaged tooth, advanced periodontal disease, or certain other dental health problems. Our oral surgery expert can help.
Dental extractions are one of the more common procedures in oral surgery. Our expert in oral surgery can often save teeth that once would have been pulled, but when a tooth threatens the health of other teeth, extraction may be the only option. You may be a candidate for an extraction if your tooth erupts improperly, if it is trapped in the jawbone, if it has broken near the gum line, if it is extensively decayed, or if you have advanced periodontitis that has damaged the bone surrounding the tooth.
Periodontal treatments are also common surgical procedures. Our oral surgery expert may recommend surgical procedures if your gum disease does not respond to more conservative treatments or has damaged the periodontal ligament, alveolar bone, or other underlying structures. We have a variety of options that can restore lost tissues or reduce the amount of damage, including pocket reduction surgery, soft tissue grafts, and bone grafts.
If you are a candidate for oral surgery, our expert in oral surgery will explain the procedures you need and help you explore alternatives if necessary. We will plan each phase of your treatment by taking dental X-rays and other necessary images. Dental anesthesia will keep you comfortable, and sedation may be appropriate for longer or more involved procedures or for patients who are particularly anxious. Contact us today to find out more about available treatment options or to schedule your appointment with our dentist.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
