Surgeries are very commonplace in the medical and dental industries, but the fear surrounding them is completely understandable.

Rest assured we’ll do everything in our power to make your experience comfortable and satisfying.
Tooth extraction may be a part of your care plan before beginning orthodontic treatment, or if you have a badly decayed tooth or significant oral infection. While it may not sound ideal, the procedure can be comfortable and routine. After the removal, we will give you details on how to ensure an equally comfortable recovery.
It’s estimated that ten million third molars (also known as wisdom teeth) are removed in America per year. Why is wisdom tooth extraction necessary?
Well, for some people, it isn’t. The reason wisdom tooth extractions are so common is because our jaws and mouths just aren’t as big and spacious as they used to be. Scientists believe this is the evolutionary result of our diets changing from coarse, rough foods to softer foods and the implementation of eating utensils.
Jawbone deterioration causes a lot of problems for your oral and overall well-being. It can cause teeth to loosen and fall out, alter your facial appearance, and make speaking and eating difficult. A strong jawbone is needed to replace missing teeth with dental implants and restore your oral health. Thank goodness for grafting!
Crown lengthening is the natural result of gum contouring, but it’s usually done to ready your smile for restorative services, such as placing a crown or creating a uniform appearance before securing a dental bridge. For firm placement of restorative materials like porcelain or zirconia, we may recommend the removal of excess gum tissue.
Wherever you’re starting from, you can count on your Crown Dentistry team to meet you and walk with you on the path to better oral health.
Full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation can be a smile makeover with a restorative purpose. If you’re dealing with oral infections, failing, or missing teeth, you deserve the freedom that comes with putting these dental troubles behind you and experiencing the confidence that comes with a strong, healthy smile.
