Extractions and Bone Grafts

Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved and will need to be extracted. Removing a tooth can eliminate pain as well as a source of infection that can be taxing on your body.

Dr. Johnson has taken numerous hours of continuing education in the field of Oral Surgery and extracted thousands of teeth. Through profound anesthesia (numbing) techniques and his Oral Surgery knowledge he will make sure that you experience is as painless as possible.

Bone Grafts: When teeth are extracted there is a socket “hole” where the tooth used to be. This hole can create a domino effect; causing bone loss around neighboring teeth and put them in a compromised position. However, recent advances in dental technology have allowed us resolve this problem. Through a quick, simple procedure that is painless; bone material can be grafted into the socket to fill this hole and preserve the bone around and protect neighboring teeth.
