What types of oral surgery do you do?
We offer a number of oral surgery options including tooth extraction, gum surgery, and dental bone grafting. Both Dr. Hilton and Dr. Marcincin are very skilled at performing surgical procedures and will do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable.
Tooth extraction can be a scary proposition for most people. We completely understand that you may be anxious about the procedure, and all member of our team are trained to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible
Gum surgery is necessary when periodontal disease is very advanced and threatens the health of your gums and teeth. With severe gum disease, pockets form around your teeth causing them to feel loose. These pockets also provide a space for bacteria to thrive and threaten your oral health. After gum surgery, the gum tissue has a chance to heal and fit snugly around your gums.
We perform bone grafting when you’ve lost a tooth and the absence of the root causes the gum to collapse. This not only looks bad, but it can lead to further deterioration of the bone. We also use bone grafting in preparation for placement of a dental implant when there is not enough existing bone to support the implant.
You can be assured that no matter what type of oral surgery you need, the Summit Dental Group team will be there to support you through the entire process. Your comfort is our top priority!
