Oral Surgery in Germantown

While teeth extractions are the most common oral surgery, there a wide variety of dental conditions that require surgery. Our expertise includes many of these procedures including:

Bone Grafting: When planning for dental implants, we sometimes find that the jawbone has deteriorated due to tooth loss. In these cases, the bone will not be strong enough to support an implant, and we will usually recommend a bone graft. During this minimally invasive procedure, bone grafting material is placed in your jaw and becomes a “biological placeholder.” Over time, your body will come to recognize the graft as your own bone. Eventually, the graft is resorbed and replaced with natural bone. Once this process is complete, the bone can normally support a dental implant.

Cavitation Surgery: A cavitation is a hole in the bone where a tooth has been extracted, and the bone has not healed in properly. This is known as an area of osteonecrosis (dead bone). Inside a cavitation, bacteria can flourish creating a breeding ground for toxins. The only effective treatment for a cavitation is surgical removal. This surgery involves making an incision in the gum to expose the defect and scraping the area clean. Packing material may be placed in the wound, and then it is sutured.

When performing surgical procedures, we are committed to our patients’ comfort. Our practice offers local anesthesia, oral sedation and laughing gas. We will work with you to determine the best anesthesia for your unique needs.

Never had a bad experience here. The staff are always so friendly and the office itself and its equipment is very up-to-date, modern, and clean. Dr. T is very gentle and nice and takes the time to answer your questions.

Crown Dental is by far the best dentist I've been to. Dr. T always takes such good care of us. My 4 year old loved seeing Linda again, our visit was so personable, Linda and Dr. T remembered her from her very first visit. Highly recommend Crown Dental Care!

I love coming to this dentist. The staff are always nice and professional. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and try to make the pain of going to the dentist a bit less terrible. I have had many dentists and hated all of them until I came to Crown Dental Care in Germantown. If you’re looking for a dentist, I would highly recommend them!
