Here Are 3 of Our Most Common Oral Surgery Procedures
Dental Implant Placement
The success of dental implants depends upon proper location and bone quality. Dr. Micah Bickel will provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are healthy enough for dental implants or if you could benefit from bone grafting or a sinus lift.
Dr. Bickel explains all options to our patients so they can make the best decision for themselves. He is known for his ability to communicate clearly and compassionately with our patients.
Extraction of Damaged or Diseased Teeth
While saving teeth is an integral part of what we do, sometimes removing a diseased or damaged tooth is necessary to eliminate pain and the spread of disease to healthy teeth and bone.
We always explore other options before recommending an extraction, but if one becomes necessary, we can replace your missing tooth, so your smile and your health don't suffer.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are tricky. Some patients have good luck, and they never create a problem. The majority of people will find that wisdom teeth eventually cause pain or overcrowding because they simply do not have enough space to erupt correctly.
When wisdom teeth cannot erupt or grow in at an angle, they may cause problems with your bite or even become infected. It is usually best to address the question of wisdom teeth sooner than later. We are happy to evaluate your wisdom teeth or your teen’s wisdom teeth and remove troublesome ones if needed.
