Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth typically come in during our teenage years. Often, though, they fail to break completely through the gums or erupt at an awkward angle. These teeth can press against other healthy teeth and cause those teeth to grow crooked. Wisdom teeth are also notoriously difficult to clean, which makes them prone to decay. We’ve extracted thousands of impacted wisdom teeth over the years with great success. If wisdom teeth are causing pain or overcrowding in your mouth, it may be time to take them out! Our team will confirm this and schedule you for the next available surgical appointment.

General Tooth Extractions

If you have a painful damaged or diseased tooth, we always make saving that tooth our top priority. However, sometimes a bad tooth is beyond treatment. In these cases, we usually have no choice but to remove it. We’ll anesthetize you prior to the procedure to make sure you are completely comfortable throughout the entire procedure. However, extraction isn’t a final step in treatment, but the first step toward a healthier mouth. Without healthy tooth roots, your jawbone can begin to deteriorate. There is a solution that will restore your dental function and your confidence, as well as preserve your dental health after an extraction–dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants feel, look, and perform just like real teeth. And they never decay or lose their color. We can replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or a full mouth of missing teeth with this long-term tooth replacement Our practice uses high-quality implants from BioHorizons®, one of the top manufacturers in the industry. In some cases, we can usually place dental implants the same day as a tooth extraction!

Bone Grafting

Your jawbone’s chief function is to provide a firm foundation for your teeth. After tooth loss, the bone can begin to recede due to a lack of stimulation from tooth roots and regular chewing. Bone grafting empowers us to rebuild the missing bone. The process entails placing a small amount of bone material into the decayed areas and allowing it to fuse with the healthy bone over time. We not only reconstruct the bone, we shape it for a natural, even-looking smile. With a strong, restored jawbone, you can become a candidate for life-changing dental implants.

Ridge Augmentation

If you suffer jawbone loss following a tooth extraction, your face can take on a sunken, aged appearance. With ridge augmentation, a type of bone grafting, we can reconstruct and strengthen the bone, giving you back your unique facial appearance and restoring your oral health. With this procedure we add bone grafting material onto your jawbone ridge and inside the vacant tooth socket. This will enable your jawbone to regain the strength and mass to support dental implants.

Sinus Lift

Bone loss in your upper jaw along with missing teeth has an added complication. It can cause your sinus to expand. Our team can put it back into place with a sinus lift, another bone grafting treatment. During this procedure we place bone graft material beneath the sunken sinus cavity to reestablish your bone volume and elevate your sinus to its proper position.
