SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Oral surgery may be required for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons are when a patient needs a tooth to be extracted, when a dental implant is permanently placed in the mouth, or when a patient suffering from advanced gum disease needs gingivectomy to prevent tooth loss.
Extractions may be necessary if a patient has:
- Severe tooth decay
- Advanced periodontal disease that has created a pocket too loose for the tooth
- Cracked or broken teeth too damaged to repair with restorative procedures
- Bad teeth positioning (i.e. wisdom teeth removal)
If a patient needs a dental implant restoration, oral surgery will be required to permanently place the implant. Dr. Holley, Dr. Brittney, or Dr. Duncan then places the restoration on the implant.
When a patient has severe periodontitis, his or her teeth have a much higher risk of losing stability and falling out. To surgically correct this problem, Dr. Holley, Dr. Brittney, and Dr. Duncan will:
- Remove the diseased portion of the gums (called a gingivectomy)
- Thoroughly clean all tartar and bacteria from the roots of the affected teeth
- Suture the healthy gums back together
The result is that the periodontal pockets are reduced to a healthy depth and the teeth and gums can heal and continue to function normally.
Regardless of the oral surgery you need, Dr. Holley, Dr. Brittney, and Dr. Duncan will ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free during your procedure. Using topical or local anesthetics in combination with sedation dentistry, you will be able to relax and remain stress-free throughout your appointment.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
