There are a number of situations in which oral surgery is necessary. Whether you need to remove or replace a tooth, you want to work with a trusted dentist for your surgical dentistry. Many general dentists refer their patients to oral surgeons; however, at Boyles General Dentistry & Implant Center, you will always work with one of our dentists for your surgical dentistry so you can feel comfortable with the team you already know and trust. Here’s what you should know about the different types of surgical dentistry that your dentist in Odessa offers.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove a tooth in order to protect your oral health. Having your tooth extracted may sound scary, but it’s actually not as bad as you think when you’re working with the right team. At Boyles General Dentistry & Implant Center, we make every effort to ensure that you are completely comfortable during your procedure by using the best dental anesthetics or dental sedation if needed.
Some of the circumstances that may require an extraction are:
- A tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or periodontal (gum) disease
- Teeth that need to be removed for successful orthodontic treatment
- A tooth that is damaged, cracked, or fractured beyond repair
- Wisdom teeth
Whether you need a straightforward simple extraction, or a more complex surgical extraction, you can rely on your team at Boyles General Dentistry & Implant Center.
Replacing a compromised tooth with a dental implant is one of the wisest decisions when it comes to your oral health because it replaces your tooth and root. While many dentists refer to a specialist for implant placement, at Boyles General Dentistry & Implant Center, we offer comprehensive implant dentistry, which includes placing your dental implant.
You will feel confident and at ease working with the team you know and trust from start to finish of your implant procedure
Many patients are told they are not candidates for dental implants because they don’t have enough healthy bone structure to support the implant. With a bone grafting procedure, our dentists are able to use natural or synthetic materials to rebuild your jawbone so that it can successfully support a dental implant. This makes the benefits of dental implants accessible to many more patients that might not have been candidates in the past.
