Dental surgical procedures are sometimes necessary to remove infected teeth or treat defects of the bone or gums. Our doctors perform routine tooth extractions and surgical procedures in the comfort of our office.
- In some cases, we may recommend referral to a surgical specialist, such as Oral Surgeon or Periodontist to support your specific treatment plan.
Common dental surgical procedures include:
- Laser crown lengthening is a surgical procedure in which the gum tissue or bone height is modified to expose enough tooth structure to support a crown. (This is common in with broken-down teeth, or teeth with very large fillings.) Read more about Laser Dentistry.
- Third molars, or wisdom teeth, typically erupt in early adult years. These "extra" teeth are positioned far back in the mouth and can be difficult to clean, making them troublesome for most people. If you have wisdom teeth, we may recommend that they be removed to prevent infection or decay that might affect surrounding teeth.
- Restorative surgical treatments such as bone and tissue grafts may be recommended to repair areas of bone loss, provide support for dental implants or to optimize the fit of dentures. Our doctors work closely with surgical specialists to coordinate this type of care with your overall treatment plan.
