Oral Surgery

Get the Care You Deserve

At Deerfoot Dental, your comfort and health are our top priorities. We know nobody wants to have oral surgery, but we know it may be necessary for your health so we’re here to make the experience as relaxed, comfortable, and pain-free as possible. Dr. Grovenstein is a highly skilled clinical dentist who can perform many types of oral surgery right here in our office.

Tooth Extractions

Your natural teeth are precious–and once your adult teeth come in, they’re the only set you’ve got. While our primary goal is, of course, to preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible – hopefully for life – sometimes things can happen. Whether you suffer from chronic tooth decay, gum disease has left your teeth unable to support themselves, or you have an impacted wisdom tooth, we can provide routine extractions from the comfort of your dental home with us.

We can perform extractions under either a local or general anesthetic, depending on your individual needs and preferences. Dr. Grovenstein will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to follow after your extraction to ensure the fastest, most comfortable recovery for you.

Root Canals & Endodontics

If you’re experiencing a toothache or signs of infection such as pain or swelling, you may have an infected tooth that requires a root canal. Root canals have a reputation as the benchmark for something you would choose to avoid, but they have evolved into an almost routine, virtually painless procedure–often no more uncomfortable than having a cavity filled.

For a root canal, Dr. Grovenstein makes a small access hole in the tooth, through which he carefully removes the infection. He then sterilizes and fills the chamber to prevent further infection, finishing the process with a crown to bring the tooth back to full health and function. Most root canals are non-surgical, however, in more complex cases, endodontic surgery may be necessary.
