Specialized dental care when you need it
Dentistry is much more than routine cleanings and fillings. Sometimes specialized care and a team approach are necessary to keep your smile healthy and strong. Dr. Dean has the knowledge and experience to guide you through all aspects of specialty dentistry to ensure that you get the most out of your smile.
Common Dental Specialties
- Oral Surgery
This often includes tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placements, oral cancer treatments, and jaw surgery. Oral surgery involves surgical procedures related to the mouth, head, neck, and face.
Infections inside the teeth will require specialized care. This includes root canal procedures, in which the nerve tissue inside a natural tooth is cleaned away, sterilized, and replaced. Endodontic care also includes the evaluation of teeth which may have suffered an internal fracture or an irreversible trauma.
This includes the soft and hard tissues which support the teeth, such as the gum tissue, the jawbone, and the connective tissues. Periodontal disease treatments, periodontal cleanings, tissue grafting, and gumline recontouring are common procedures within this specialty. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments can be provided.
