Dentist Providing Oral Surgery in Castle Rock
Wisdom Tooth Removal, Bone Grafting, & Extractions
When you’re considering who to trust with your oral healthcare, we encourage you to choose a dentist who is capable of performing the broadest array of oral healthcare treatments possible. At Cowlitz River Dental in Castle Rock, Washington, we offer various oral surgery procedures as part of our general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry practice. Our team has extensive education and experience in oral surgery, and our office employs some of the latest technology (such as cone beam 3D imaging) to help make oral surgery more successful and comfortable. With sedation dentistry options that include IV sedation, you can rest assured that your oral surgery from Cowlitz River Dental will be as comfortable as it will be effective.
Our oral surgery can include:
- Wisdom Teeth Removal
- Bone Grafting
- Flap Procedures
- Soft Tissue Grafting
- Guided Tissue Regeneration
Dental Implants Placement
For patients who have experienced bone deterioration and would like to have dental implants placed, bone grafting oral surgery and guided tissue regeneration maybe be required prior to dental implant surgery. Guided tissue regeneration oral surgery uses barrier membranes to encourage the growth of new bone or gum tissue, which may enhance function, appearance, and support.
When a patient is “tongue tied,” we can perform a frenectomy. A frenectomy is a relatively simple oral surgery that involves the cutting and reshaping of the frenulum, or small flap of soft tissue under the tongue that anchors the tongue to the lower jaw or the lips to the jaws. Sometimes a labial frenectomy (to cut back the folds that attach the lips to the jaws) will be required prior to orthodontics or to correct a gum problem. We use a laser to make the procedure very easy for our patients.
Very few dental offices offer such a wide variety of oral surgery in-house. As your oral health needs change through the years, you may find yourself needing oral surgery to treat gum disease or prepare you for tooth replacement. Why not form a relationship with the team at Cowlitz River Dental who can perform complex oral surgery as well as general dentistry and more?
And don’t forget – we offer a number of sedation dentistry options to make your oral surgery more comfortable and relaxed.
