Despite all of our efforts on preventive care, there are still these occasional emergencies, occasional infections that develop. Sometimes a tooth is not able to be treated successfully, and sometimes if we try and maintain it, it’s going to continue to be a source of infection. In such a case, oral surgery is necessary to either remove the tooth or provide some kind of service to eliminate the infection. Once that’s done, the body can heal back, and then we can either contemplate implants or something that will restore what’s been lost.
On the occasion that we have a patient that comes in with a dental infection that requires either surgical intervention, something like that, the vast majority of cases we can treat here. Still, we don’t treat every single situation here, so that being said, we have a group of specialists that we work very closely with. Our specialists are the type that I send my own family to. I feel very confident. Most have been very long-term relationships. By us working with them on a regular basis, we ensure that our patients are extremely well taken care of, whether it’s here in our office or whether we do need to call in the expertise of a specialist.

Your Situation Could Require a Tooth Extraction
Dr. Miner will always try to save your diseased or damaged tooth. However, tooth removal is sometimes needed to avoid damage to your healthy teeth and the rest of your mouth. If you do require an extraction, we’ll provide quick and accurate care. Digital X-rays will give us an up-close look at your teeth, bones, and nerves, then Dr. Miner will put his 30-plus years of oral surgery experience to use to remove your tooth. Afterward, we’ll give you specific care instructions so that your healing time is comfortable and quick.
If you need other types of oral surgery – like wisdom tooth removal, bone grafts, ridge augmentation, or sinus lifts – we will refer you to a trusted specialist located right in our building.
