You probably don’t have dental surgery on your bucket list. Most likely, you would prefer to avoid oral surgery if at all possible.

Yet, we also know that this kind of surgery can make a world of difference in your quality of life and your oral health. That’s why we offer a variety of services at our Bend, OR dental practice. 

Our procedures could help you in a number of ways, such as the following:

1. Avoid Problems

Millions of people have wisdom teeth that cannot erupt correctly. Their jaws are too small for their third molars to come in right, which can lead to impacted teeth. Those wisdom teeth can cause decades of decay, gum disease, and other issues if they aren’t removed. Since we can monitor the progress of wisdom teeth during routine appointments, we can let you know if yours should be taken out before you have serious consequences.

2. Remove Problems

Of course, dental problems can develop for a number of reasons. An injury could crack or break your tooth to a point that it can’t be fixed. An infected tooth may be too far gone for even a root canal to save it. Crowding can complicate plans for orthodontic care. A tooth extraction can alleviate these problems.

3. Rebuild Your Oral Health

Tooth loss often leads to bone loss in your jaw if your teeth are not replaced in time. A bone graft can rebuild your healthy jaw, which can allow you to get implants. That can restore and protect your jaw and revive your healthy smile.
