Gentle Care Dentistry offers Dental Surgery Treatment to improve your smile
At Gentle Care Dentistry in Azusa, California, we are pleased to provide dental surgery for new and current patients. Dental surgical treatments are needed to improve the appearance and function of your smile and your oral health. Dr. Brianne Luu and her team offer several types of dental surgery in the San Gabriel Valley area.
Types of dental surgery provided by Dr. Brianne Luu
- Dental implant placement: The placement of a dental implant requires patients to undergo a surgical procedure during which a titanium post is placed into the bone of the jaw. The implant itself acts as a tooth root replacement for those missing one or more teeth. The implant’s abutment, which rests above the gumline, firmly holds a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the patient’s needs and how many teeth are being replaced.
- Root canal therapy: When an infection occurs in the inner canal of the tooth, it can result in the need for root canal therapy, also known as “endodontic therapy.” This treatment is used to save a tooth and avoid permanent extraction when possible. During the procedure, the inner mass of tissues called the dental pulp is removed, then the canals are filled with gutta-percha and sealed with composite resin. The treated tooth may also benefit from the placement of a custom dental crown to offer an extra layer of strength and protection.
- Tooth extractions: There are times when patients might need to have one or more teeth removed. These extractions may be either simple extractions or surgical extractions, depending on the position of the tooth and the purpose of removal.
