Gentle Tooth Extractions
When a tooth is too badly decayed to save, Dr. Burton will perform an extraction. An extraction may also be recommended if your tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but if your wisdom teeth are impacted and are crowding your teeth, or if gum disease is present, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best to pull the wisdom teeth before they jeopardize your smile as a whole. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but third molars do not finish developing until closer to about 30 years of age, so the timing for this procedure varies.
An operculectomy is a minor oral surgical procedure related to wisdom teeth removal. An operculum is a flap of extra tissue that covers a partially erupted tooth (usually a lower third molar). It's hard to keep this flap of tissue clean and it can cause inflammation to the surrounding gum tissue. Dr. Burton can remove the operculum using a simple oral surgical procedure.
Gum Tissue Recontouring
If you feel your smile is overshadowed by too much gum tissue, Dr. Burton can perform a gum tissue recontouring procedure. Gum tissue recontouring can help create a smile that has more teeth visible - and less gum! This procedure can also improve your overall gum health.
