Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth removal can alleviate issues such as jaw pain, headaches, cysts, and gum disease caused by the eruption of third molars. The sooner you remove them, the sooner you can experience relief. Our highly skilled Grosse Pointe oral surgeons make the process fast and virtually painless.

Root Canal Therapy

An untreated cavity can ultimately lead to tooth decay. Once the oral bacteria invade the dental pulp, it may necessitate root canal therapy, which removes the diseased pulp by drilling into the tooth. Our Grosse Pointe endodontist offers safe, gentle, and effective root canal treatments that will have you feeling like yourself again in no time. If you have inflamed gums, painful chewing, and sensitivity to hot and cold foods, call our office for assistance.

Zygomatic Implants

Perhaps you are interested in permanent tooth replacement but have been told that you are not a candidate from traditional dental implants. If you have suffered bone loss, zygomatic dental implants may be the solution you are looking for. These implants have a longer post that affixes to the cheekbone, allowing patients with advanced jawbone loss to achieve a beautiful, fully restored smile.
