Surgical Extractions

A surgical extraction is a slightly more complex procedure that occurs when a tooth has not yet broken through the gum line or has not yet fully grown into the mouth. When a surgical extraction is needed, the dental surgeon makes a small incision into your gum in order to access the affected tooth. From here, the procedure is similar to a simple extraction.  Surgical extractions typically also require stitches to close the wound.

Simple Extractions

Tooth extractions are routine dental procedures used to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth, unfallen primary teeth. Dentists usually make every effort to preserve natural teeth, although sometimes an extraction is necessary. Although the procedure is performed in a dentist’s office, it is considered surgery. Teeth that are visible above the gum line and can be pulled with forceps are usually removed by simple extraction.  Depending on which teeth are removed, they may be replaced with a dental implant or another oral prosthetic.

Dental Fillings

Dental restoration, dental fillings, or simply fillings, are treatments used to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants.

Dental Fillings and Why Dental Fillings are  Important!

Research shows that 78% of people are prone to developing a cavity by the age of 17.

Crowns/Bridges

Crowns and bridges are a fixed solution to missing or damaged teeth. This restorative procedure uses prosthetic devices to return your smile to its natural state. A crown is used when the tooth structure is damaged or fractured. A bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing.
