There are many dental procedures designed to preserve your existing teeth and improve your oral health. Our dentist can provide nonsurgical treatments for more mild cases and oral surgeries for more severe cases.

Most nonsurgical procedures are designed to prevent gum disease because more severe stages of the disease can lead to loose teeth, bone loss and other problems. Nonsurgical options are often a great solution for more mild forms of gum disease and can be very effective in stopping the disease from progressing and leading to tooth extractions. Some common nonsurgical treatment options include:

  • Additional dental cleanings, including deep cleanings
  • Improved at-home oral hygiene
  • Scaling and root planing
  • Root canal therapy

Surgical tooth preservation procedures are recommended if your smile is severely damaged and no other conservative treatment will help. The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function, health and appearance of your smile and the surrounding structures, such as your jaw. Oral surgery may be necessary to save your teeth and correct your smile. Tooth preserving surgeries may include:

  • Tooth extraction (for teeth that cannot be restored and could damage other teeth)
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Bone grafts
  • Sinus lifts

Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and your needs to determine if you need a surgical or nonsurgical procedure in order to preserve your smile and save your teeth. Call our office to learn which is the best available treatment choice for you.
