Dr. Dobry recommends visiting us twice a year for routine dental cleanings and exams. Regular checkups not only keep your teeth clean, but they also help us catch and treat dental problems early.
Even so, dental surgery such as a tooth extraction may be needed at some point. We will always try to preserve a diseased or damaged tooth, but sometimes removal is necessary to protect your other teeth and gums from harm. It may also be needed if you are replacing teeth with a bridge or another option.
If you need an extraction, you can expect:
- Advanced Technology – Dr. Dobry will plan your procedure using digital X-rays. They emit about 90 percent less radiation than standard X-rays, plus they provide us better-quality images for more precise and comfortable treatment.
- A Comfortable Experience – We offer local anesthesia using The Wand®. This advanced system numbs a single tooth without an injection. Our patients love this method of anesthesia because it’s more comfortable, and they’re not left with a numb face for the next several hours
Dr. Dobry also provides wisdom teeth removal in some cases. He will be happy to examine your teeth and see if he can help. If not, he’ll refer you to a trusted oral surgeon in the area. Depending on your situation, he can also perform or refer out ridge augmentation, a procedure used to prepare your jaw for dental implants or for aesthetic purposes.
