Great dental care depends on the diligent preventative care of the patient coupled with the expert professional attention of a committed dental team. This is particularly true when a person is in pain or needs the expert surgical care to prepare the mouth for other dental procedures. Our Marine Park oral surgeon, Dr. Marc B. Hertz, DDS is committed to protecting, preserving and enhancing your dental health. Our state-of-the-art offices are equipped with the latest in dental technology including operating microscopes and digital radiographs to provide any surgical treatment necessary.
Our Marine Park oral surgeon offers a wide array of surgical services including implant dentistry where our doctor will surgically place a titanium anchor into the jawbone to serve as a root for an artificial replacement tooth. An additional service of our oral surgeon is a bone graft that is used to add additional bone material whenever there is insufficient bone available at an implant site to support the implant. Bone grafts are also used to lift and augment the sinuses. The most common forms of oral surgery are tooth extractions. Teeth are extracted for a number of reasons including teeth that are too decayed or broken to restore or to alleviate overcrowding in the mouth. Wisdom teeth are often extracted to make room for other erupting teeth, to relieve crowding, or because they are crooked or impacted.
Apicectomy is a root end resection that is done when traditional root canal treatment has failed to relieve pain of an infected tooth. Our Marine Park oral surgeon also removes abscesses and cysts from the mouth. After a surgical procedure the mouth should heal quickly and the inflammation and pain disappear. With improvements in sedation and surgical technology patients should feel little pain during or after oral surgery. Any residual pain after the procedure should be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers. If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity call our office.
