Dental surgery covers many services to correct oral problems. Comprehensive Dental focuses on the best solution and the best experience for you.
While we focus on helping you maintain your teeth for a lifetime, sometimes certain teeth need to be removed. Extra teeth, fractured teeth, or very crowded teeth present situations that may mean treatment involving removal. In some cases, severely decayed or cracked teeth, or those missing large amounts of supporting bone leave extraction as the only viable option.
We always consider your comfort regardless of the type of care you’re receiving. We’ll discuss your unique situation specifically to determine the best way to help you receive the treatment you need. Few patients look forward to any minor surgical procedure, but today’s methods provide the safest, least invasive care possible.
Minor surgical procedures involving the teeth, gums and jaw bone may be needed to preserve or enhance long-term health. While our philosophy rests on maintaining teeth, each situation deserves consideration of all the factors involved. So when the discussion we have together leads to a surgical correction, Comprehensive Dental will take every step necessary to ensure your comfort and safety.
A damaged tooth may need removal if it’s beyond repair. We also understand patients sometimes choose to remove a tooth due to financial limitations. We’ll always work hard to help you find the solution that fits every aspect of your situation. Regardless, Dr. Lockett uses the best methods and equipment to provide a quick and painless visit. Fortunately, sedation options hold out a range of anxiety-reduction protocols that you may wish to consider as well.
Other minor procedures decided on are always applied with the same compassionate philosophy. Biopsies of suspicious tissue, reshaping of gum defects, or removal of obtrusive bone present scenarios that may involve surgical correction.
Comprehensive Dental will determine with you the best way for you to receive care. On occasion, we'll recommend a referral to a trusted specialist. Any time Dr. Lockett feels you’ll be served best by a colleague trained in a particular treatment, he won’t hesitate to use the best resources for your care.
