Sometimes, tooth extraction is necessary to prevent overcrowding or if a patient has a severely damaged, decayed, or impacted tooth. It may sound intimidating, but we can provide you with prescription medications that relieve anxiety and work with local anesthetics (“Novocaine”) to limit pain or discomfort.
We’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. Delaying or avoiding a tooth extraction can lead to serious health consequences. If the procedure is recommended, it’s crucial to seek help immediately to prevent additional damage.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are among the most effective tooth replacement solutions to replace any number of missing or damaged teeth. They’re surgically placed directly into the jawbone for unmatched stability and strength. Depending on the number of teeth being placed, we may place multiple implants strategically across the arch to support an overdenture or bridge.
Our Nashua dentist, Dr. Bobbitt has completed a significant amount of training in dental implants and prosthetics and is skilled in various types of implant procedures. He can address areas in surgical implant placement, implant restoration, and more.
Endodontic (“Root Canal”) Treatment
Root canal treatment is a valuable procedure that can save your tooth and relieve your pain and discomfort. A root canal is necessary when a cavity is left untreated long enough for infection to reach the center of the tooth. During the procedure, we’ll numb the area, carefully remove the pulp, disinfect the inside of the tooth, and fill the area with a dental composite.
Bone and Tissue Grafting
A bone graft uses a portion of healthy bone collected from your body, from human or animal cadaver sources, or, in rare cases, from laboratory-created compounds to restore damaged or missing bone in your jaw. With bone grafting, Dr. Bobbitt can stimulate your existing bone to naturally regenerate while the developing new tissue merges with existing tissue. This procedure creates and strengthens the foundation for your dental implant.
Soft tissue grafting is used to restore the gum line and improve the overall appearance of your smile. We’ll remove healthy gum tissue from the roof of your mouth (or in some rarer cases, from laboratory-created or animal sources) and use it to rebuild the area where the gums have receded. Our grafting material is designed to protect and strengthen the tooth’s surface, eliminating a “toothy” smile and correcting dental symmetry.
Post-Op for Oral Surgery
The first few days, and sometimes weeks, after oral surgery is the most crucial in a successful recovery. We’ll provide you with post-op instructions to ensure proper healing and avoid complications. With the right care, patients will often experience a healthy recovery and can return to their regular activities two days after surgery.
