Common oral surgeries we perform include:
- Root canals
- Dental implants
- Wisdom tooth extraction
The goal of a root canal is to save a decayed natural tooth whose pulp is infected. This surgery helps to prevent reinfection and avoid further pain without having to extract and replace the impacted tooth.
Wisdom tooth extraction removes the farthest set of molars in adult jaws. These teeth, which usually emerge in the late teens to early twenties, may cause more damage than good when they lack proper space. Extracting them helps prevent decay and/or lasting pain in the jaw. This surgery is part of general dentistry procedures and generally heals quickly.
Dental implants involve a longer, multi-step process, which can last from two to six months. A dental implant is a full replacement for a tooth too decayed to be restored. The process includes extracting the natural tooth, implanting the metallic base that acts as a root, and a dental crown to complete the restoration. The crown replaces the visible part of the natural tooth, and helps you bite and eat normally with the implant. as the new visible part of the tooth for proper dental function when biting, eating, and speaking.
