Oral Surgery: Restore your teeth and gums to their healthy state!
When you look at your smile in the mirror, do you feel that you have a “gummy smile?” Perhaps you have been having intense pain in the back your mouth, close to where your wisdom teeth are located, and you desperately are seeking relief.
If you connect with either of these scenarios, don’t worry because Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS of Heritage Creek Dental can help! He is well-experienced and skilled to offer several types of oral surgery treatment options so you can have healthy, beautiful, pain-free teeth and gums again.
Do you feel that you have a “gummy smile” when you look in the mirror? A gummy smile occurs when there is an excessive growth of gum tissue over your teeth, but don’t worry because this can be corrected! With gum recontouring by Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS, you can smile proudly and confidently again!
To reverse bone loss, Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS also performs the bone grafting procedure. This procedure involves the replacement or augmentation of the bone that surrounds your teeth. Bone grafting is performed to effectively place dental implants, too.
If a patient has no other alternatives to treat severely decayed teeth caused by advanced periodontal disease, a full-mouth extraction might be the only treatment possible. Based on several important factors, Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS will determine whether or not he can save your heavily decayed teeth, or if a full-mouth extraction is needed. Regardless, you can be confident that our Clive, IA dentist is experienced and skilled in full-mouth extractions.
Wisdom teeth extractions
Whether you have pain right now in the back of your mouth near your wisdom teeth, or if your wisdom teeth are still impacted in the gum, there is a chance you may need your wisdom teeth removed. If wisdom teeth are not removed, they can cause significant changes and problems to your teeth and smile. Rest assured, Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS will evaluate your teeth and gums to determine whether or not you will benefit from wisdom teeth extractions.
Sometimes a bony growth in your mandible region (alongside the surface of your tongue) can appear, which is referred to as torus mandibularis (or mandibular tori in the plural form). When this happens, there is potential for ulcers to form. In such cases, Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS is experienced to perform the tori removal procedure to provide relief and promote healthy teeth and gums.
