Oral Surgery

Dentist in Warrenton

Some serious or complex oral health issues require surgery to treat or correct. We provide surgical options for those in need, including:

  • Tooth Extraction
  • Oral Biopsy

A dental extraction may be recommended when a tooth is deeply decayed, causing severe pain or in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. Our pain management techniques and technology have made dental extractions possible with little to no discomfort.

After this procedure, be sure to rest and follow the doctor’s orders. You can use a cold compress to keep swelling down and reduce pain. Also, limit yourself to soft foods after surgery. Avoid drinking from a straw and smoking to prevent dry sockets. We will provide after care instructions following your extraction.

Extraction Site Preservation

When removing a tooth, it may be important to consider what will be done with the empty space after that tooth is removed. If nothing is done with the extraction site, the jaw bone may degenerate and change shape during the healing process.

A dental implant or bridge can be used to fill in the empty space. We will discuss your options with you prior to your extraction.

Our team will take time to recommend a treatment plan based on your individual needs. If you choose to have an extraction, we will work to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
