Affordable, Painless Oral Surgery in St. Johns, FL
If typical treatment fails to restore the health of your smile, it is time to consider an alternative solution. For some patients, tooth extractions are required for them to receive the results they desire. At St. Johns Mile Care, we are proud to perform oral surgery in St Johns, FL. The surgical procedures we offer are only suggested when less invasive treatment proves ineffective If a tooth becomes injured or decayed to the point that it cannot be saved with a root canal or dental crown, the extraction may be the only option left to protect the health of your mouth and teeth. If an unhealthy tooth is not treated with a root canal or removed, it can spread infection and bacteria throughout your body, creating any number of systemic health issues. Dr. Drew can remove your teeth in a stress-free and virtually painless manner. And as you recover, you can also be deciding on what type of tooth replacement is best for you.
Bone Grafting in St. Johns, FL
Sometimes following a tooth extraction tooth replacement with dental implants is not a viable solution because of bone loss in the jaw. Deterioration of the jawbone is an unfortunate side effect of tooth loss. While dental implants are an excellent option for tooth replacement the implant will need adequate bone support for a good long-term prognosis.
We use high quality bone grafting materials using freeze dried allograft (human origin) or xenograft (bovine origin) that is harvested from prescreened donors and sterilized for safety. Grafting at time of the extraction will prevent the inevitable bone loss that occurs following the removal of a tooth. This helps establish adequate bone for future implant placement.
Tooth / Teeth Removal in St. Johns, FL
Wisdom teeth can cause a lot of problems for your oral health, especially if they are impacted (unerupted) or even partially impacted. This can cause moderate to severe pain, infection and even root decay on your adjacent teeth due to inability to floss or brush. Even wisdom teeth that are fully erupted can cause problems for your oral health. This is due to them being so far back in your mouth adequate cleaning can present a problem, which can lead to increased risk of tooth decay.
