Types of oral surgery and extractions

Greenwood Oral Surgery

There may be times in your life when you need extensive dental work. Perhaps you require a tooth extraction, or you are preparing to have dental implants placed. While these are more complex procedures for patients, they also require the work of a skilled dentist for positive results. Dr. Griffin is a trained professional, qualified and experienced in performing dental surgery, whether it is oral surgery or extractions.

An extraction is the removal of a tooth. Teeth may be removed for a variety of reasons – a common extraction involves a patient’s wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth erupt from the gums, they can be painful. They can also crowd adjacent teeth, which will cause your smile to get out of alignment and start bite problems. You might also need an extraction due to a large area of decay, severe infection, a failed root canal, extensive gum disease, or trauma and breakage to the tooth that is beyond repair.

The term “oral surgery” includes any kind of surgery performed on the gums or bones of your mouth. However, Dr. Griffin’s office focuses on dental implant placement, prosthetic surgery, and removal of minor, benign soft tissue lesions. He is highly-trained in the area of oral surgery, and has been completing such procedures for several years with great success. State-of-the-art anesthesia techniques ensure your comfort throughout such a procedure.

By providing these services, Dr. Griffin is able to complete gentle and safe oral surgery, extractions, general, and cosmetic dentistry all under one roof. From cosmetic dentistry to the installation of dental implants, Dr. Griffin offers a complete set of services to conveniently help patients with their dental concerns.

If you think you may need oral surgery or an extraction, call his office today to schedule a consultation and examination appointment. Get started on the road to improving your smile!

I've gone to at least 3 different dentists over the past few years, consistently had dental problems and had to get the same treatment done over and over again.
