Naturally, the primary goal of the Burman Dental team is to protect, preserve, and beautify your natural teeth. Unfortunately, there are situations when this may not be possible.
This is especially true when severe gum disease is present and accompanied by damage to the bone and periodontal ligaments that leaves the tooth unsupported. After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Burman will give you an honest assessment of the expected prognosis for treatment.
If a tooth is not savable, gentle precision extraction techniques are utilized. Bone grafting, which is extremely desirable for patients who wish to replace the tooth with a dental implant, is also offered.
