Minor surgical procedures involving the teeth, gums and jaw bone may be needed to preserve or enhance long-term health. While our philosophy rests on maintaining teeth, each situation deserves consideration of all the factors involved. So when the discussion we have together leads to a surgical correction, Dr. Clawson will take every step necessary to ensure your comfort and safety.
A damaged tooth may need removal if it’s beyond repair. We also understand patients sometimes choose to remove a tooth due to financial limitations. We’ll always work hard to help you find the solution that fits every aspect of your situation. Regardless, Dr. Clawson uses the best methods and equipment to provide a quick and painless visit. Fortunately, sedation options hold out a range of anxiety-reduction protocols that you may wish to consider as well.
Other minor procedures decided on are always applied with the same compassionate philosophy. Biopsies of suspicious tissue, reshaping of gum defects, or removal of obtrusive bone present scenarios that may involve surgical correction.
Dr. Clawson will determine with you the best way for you to receive care. On occasion, they recommend a referral to a trusted specialist. Any time they feel you’ll be served best by a colleague trained in a particular treatment, they won’t hesitate to use the best resources for your care.
