Dental Surgery in Brentwood, TN

When you have certain dental problems, dental surgery might be the most suitable form of treatment. In some cases, surgery is needed in order to prevent serious complications from occurring. At Cool Springs Laser Dentistry, our Brentwood dentists provide dental surgery for those who need it. 

Types of Dental Surgery at Cool Springs Laser Dentistry

There are several types of dental surgery available to correct dental problems. Some of the most common kinds of surgery that our Brentwood dentists offer include root canals, wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, tooth extraction and gum surgery. 

Root Canals

Root canals involve removing the pulp and nerve inside a decayed tooth, then sealing it up. This type of surgery is done to save severely decayed teeth and prevent infections. 

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth removal is done to take impacted wisdom teeth out of the jaw before they cause infections or other problems. In some cases, only one tooth needs to be removed, but some patients end up needing all four of these teeth removed. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are placed inside the jawbone in order to hold an artificial tooth in place. This type of surgery involves putting an implant in the jaw, then giving the surrounding tissue time to fuse with it. Dental implants are done in order to replace missing teeth that were lost due to decay, trauma or other problems.

Tooth Extraction

Simple tooth extractions are done if damaged teeth can easily be removed. In more complicated cases, surgical tooth extraction is needed, such as when the tooth breaks off under the gum line.

Gum Surgery

Gum surgery is done in order to treat gum or periodontal disease and prevent tooth loss. Some patients need gum grafts to replace missing or receded gum tissue.
