Dental Surgery Procedures
Oral surgery requires vital steps in order for proper preparation. One of the biggest benefits of having an in-house oral surgeon is that our team can perform the necessary biopsies and tests before prescribing oral surgery.
Utilizing our experienced dental surgeon, our team can now perform all of the following:
Being certified as a periodontist means that Dr. Clancy can accurately diagnose gum disease and is certified to properly treat it. Dr. Clancy can take incisional or excisional biopsies, depending on what needs diagnosing. An incisional biopsy allows her to take a small sample of the tissue that needs examination and an excisional biopsy involves the entire removal of the affected tissue.
Bone grafts can be done after a tooth extraction or other procedure where the bone in the jaw may need be more dense in order for the procedure to work. A sinus lift allows our Boston dental team to add teeth to areas where the body may have absorbed the existing bone due to tooth loss.
