Oral Surgery

You’re in Good Hands with Our Team

At We Smile Dentistry, we know the thought of oral surgery can put a knot in even the bravest patient’s stomach. For patients with any level of dental anxiety, it may be enough to avoid the whole situation altogether. You probably know treatment is in your best interest, and we want you to know you’re in skilled and capable hands with Dr. Spagnuolo and our team at We Smile Dentistry. While we are able to perform many types of oral surgery, some patients may require the help of an Oral Surgeon. We will happily organize an appointment for a patient requiring an Oral Surgeon.

Tooth Extractions

Our main goal is to keep your natural teeth healthy and in your mouth for as long as possible, hopefully a lifetime! However, we’re all human and sometimes things happen. There are several circumstances in which having a tooth extracted may be in your best interest.

  • If you have advanced gum disease or periodontitis, you may experience gum tissue and bone loss that leaves your teeth unable to support themselves
  • If you have a badly infected tooth
  • If you have a badly decayed or broken tooth
  • If you have excessive crowding
  • If you have impacted wisdom teeth

If you need a tooth extracted, don’t worry, we’ll walk you through the entire process, address any of your concerns, and make sure you are comfortable from start to finish. We will use either a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic to put you to sleep, depending on your individual preferences and needs. We also have sedation available to take the edge off your nerves and help you relax.

Extractions

Root Canals

Root canals are not technically considered oral surgery because they don’t require scalpels and sutures. They can, however, prevent the need for an extraction down the road. If you have an infected tooth, you may need a root canal to save it. Don’t worry, today, root canals are a fairly routine and painless procedure.

Having a root canal is usually no more uncomfortable than having a cavity filled. It’s actually the pain of an infected tooth left untreated that’s much worse than the procedure itself. That’s why you should come see us right away if you’re having tooth pain or sensitivity because the problem will only get worse over time.

At We Smile Dentistry, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area and make sure you don’t feel a thing. Dr. Spagnuolo will make a small access hole in the tooth before using specialized instruments to carefully remove the infection. The root canals and chambers are cleaned, sterilized, and filled to prevent further infection. The process is typically completed with the placement of a porcelain crown to protect the tooth from further damage and restore it to health.
