Oral surgery isn’t something that sounds pleasant to most people, and we understand. If it’s part of your treatment plan, know that we’ll keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the process.
If you’re part of our dental family, you know we encourage you to care for your gums along with your teeth as an essential component of your oral health. However, excess gum tissue can hide those beautiful crowns and make restorative dental procedures difficult.
Nobody wants to lose a permanent tooth, and that’s why we inform you of the best ways to prevent tooth loss. Unfortunately, injury and infection might not be receptive to our advice and your effort; in those times, extraction might be in your best interest.
Avoiding necessary dental treatment is dangerous for your smile and overall wellness. We’re here to gently and compassionately help, so don’t delay contacting us to schedule the care you need.

There are myriad reasons your mouth might be a source of pain—genetics, health conditions, and medications can all affect your oral health for better or worse. If this has been your experience, we want you to know a healthy, beautiful smile is still possible.
You deserve to feel confident in your smile, maintain a healthy diet full of variety, and speak without discomfort. Let’s work together to help you live your best life.
A lot goes into treatment planning—you wouldn’t begin an important journey without a map and itinerary, would you? Some spontaneous folks might say yes, but we’re sure you’d like at least an outline of what to expect when it comes to your smile!
There are a few reasons your jawbone might not have the density we’d like to see before we place a dental implant (or several), such as arthritis, gum disease, malocclusions, or a space that’s been missing a tooth for an extended period of time.
