At McAllister Dentistry, we offer a wide variety of dental services to improve the health and appearance of your smile. One of the high-quality services Dr. John McAllister is pleased to provide is oral surgery. While other dental offices often need to refer their patients out to other doctors for this type of treatment, our dentist is proud to be able to meet almost all of your dental needs right here in our comfortable, relaxing office. Oral surgery in Hickory, North Carolina, includes a number of treatment options, such as:
- Dental implant placement – In this treatment, we insert small implant posts into the jawbone to replace missing teeth.
- Tooth extractions – This treatment may become necessary if a tooth is severely decayed or infected, making it impossible for us to save the natural tooth.
- Wisdom tooth removal – Because the wisdom teeth (third molars) are the last teeth to erupt, there is often not enough room for them to come in as normal. We may need to remove the wisdom teeth to prevent further complications.
While these treatments are beneficial and necessary at times, we understand that the idea of oral surgery may seem intimidating. Our team strives to calm your nerves and anxiety through excellent patient education so you will know what to expect, and we also offer sedation options to help you feel more comfortable during your treatment.
