By removing excess gum tissue and possibly some bone, Dr. Worden can perfect the appearance of your teeth by making them look longer. This procedure can also be required before crown placement if there isn’t enough surface area of the tooth exposed to secure the crown.
A frenectomy is a simple procedure that can help patients who experience a reduced range of motion of their lips or tongue or a gap between their teeth caused by a frenum, a piece of connective tissue that joins two areas together. If one frenum or multiple frenum are too tight or small, you might not have proper range of motion for your tongue and lips, or it might push the teeth out of alignment. Dr. Worden can use a frenectomy to fix these issues to help your smile feel more comfortable and look more aesthetically pleasing.
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure to address issues associated with trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem, such as with wisdom teeth removal.
Dr. Worden provides extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort, or who have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but if the tooth appears above the gum line, simple extractions are often sufficient. Before any extraction, Dr. Worden will administer a dental exam and take digital x-rays to determine the extent of the damage and gain a full understanding of the state of your oral health.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Often, patients will get their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s. But since Dr. Worden assesses each patient as an individual, he’ll use his advanced diagnostic tools to determine when it's healthiest for you or your child to undergo this procedure. Although not every patient needs their wisdom teeth pulled, it can cause pain, orthodontic problems, and even severe infections in those that do.
At Worden Dentistry, we perform all different types of wisdom tooth removal surgeries, including those on impacted wisdom teeth!
Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. When these areas become infected, it can cause significant pain, and eventually death of the entire tooth. A root canal can allow for proper healing and further strengthening of the tooth.
Worden Dentistry works to detect when root canal therapy is needed to stop an infection in its tracks before it has the chance to spread through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. After treating the infection, Dr. Worden will top off the tooth with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown.
