Surgery is one thing that I have been interested in all throughout my dental career so far. We do a good amount of surgery here as needed, whether it be extractions to full-mouth extractions with dentures. We do a lot of dental implants. We've even started Teeth Tomorrow, which is if a patient has a terminal dentition and needs all the teeth out, we can take all the teeth out, smooth the bone and whatever we may need to do, and place several implants both in the top and the bottom so that a patient can have a fixed prothesis or a fixed denture on the top and bottom that does not come out. We have a wide variety of surgery that we do here, ranging from simple extraction all the way up to more invasive procedures as needed.
If we don't feel comfortable, we do have a good relationship with the nearby specialist. But being able to keep the patient here that we've been treating regularly and have a relationship with, often the patient's more comfortable in that setting knowing that we can do it here in the office and that they won't have to go back and forth between our office and specialist. I like to be able to offer as many treatment options to the patient as possible but still refer when we don't feel comfortable in a certain scenario.

Save Your Smile With a Comfortable Tooth Extraction
You may need to have a tooth removed due to infection of the dental pulp, gum disease, or overcrowding. Our Lexington dentists can perform simple tooth extraction procedures. We do not offer wisdom teeth extractions or extractions for more complicated situations, but we are happy to examine you and refer you to a trusted specialist. Remember, if you’re nervous or worried about discomfort, you can get dental sedation. After your tooth has been removed, we have many tooth replacement options, including dental implants.
Prepare Your Jaw For Implants With Bone Grafting
Bone grafting is a way to build up enough jawbone to support dental implants. If you don’t naturally have adequate support, don’t worry – we can help you get the foundation you need to achieve the smile you deserve. Two things cause jawbone deterioration: gum disease and living without teeth. Regardless of the reason, if you’ve experienced bone loss and want dental implants, our dentists can build the support you need with a bone grafting procedure.
Choose From Three Kinds of Sedation
If you need bone graft surgery or another oral surgery procedure but are nervous about pain, you can choose from three kinds of sedation:
- Inhaled Sedation – Also known as laughing gas, it’s often used for less complicated procedures.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – A medication taken orally that produces a heavier level of sedation. Used for longer procedures or for patients with a greater fear of dental work.
- IV Sedation – Our deepest form of sedation creates a sleep-like state. You will wake without memory of the procedure.
