Have you ever been recommended a certain dental treatment – say, oral surgery – by your dentist, only for them to tell you they don’t offer that service, and they’ll have to refer you to a specialist? Having to go see a specialist that doesn’t know you or your case is uncomfortable and inconvenient. That’s why Dr. Case is proud to be trained and experienced in the performance of many types of oral surgery right here in-house at Family Dental Health.
At Family Dental Health, our primary goal is to keep your natural teeth healthy and in your mouth for as long as possible. However, we realize that our patients are human (even though we think they are a unique breed of awesome) and that sometimes disease, decay, and accidents happen. There are many reasons a patient might require a tooth extraction, including:
- Gum disease
- Extensive decay
- Traumatic injury
- Impacted teeth
- Bite misalignment
If you suffer from any of the above, and Dr. Case has determined that the tooth must be extracted, don’t worry – you’re in skilled and caring hands. Extractions are a safe, routine procedure for Dr. Case.
At Family Dental Health, we understand that root canals have earned a bad rap over the years. Have you ever heard the expression, “I’d rather have a root canal”? Today, that phrase has lost all meaning, because root canals are a routine procedure for Dr. Case. If you have an infection in the tooth root, he will remove the infection, sterilize and fill the chamber to prevent further infection, and seal the tooth with a crown to restore your smile to its healthy, well-functioning condition.
You’re in good hands
For any oral surgery procedure, Dr. Case will make sure to address any concerns you may have and administer anesthetic to make sure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. We will give you specific instructions following your procedure to ensure quick and comfortable healing, and discuss restoration options for the future if necessary.
