Have you been told that you need oral surgery to correct the oral issue that has been irritating you? Do you think a dentist or oral surgeon should check your alignment or teeth to see what’s aggravating you?
Oral surgery involves more in-depth dental procedures, typically those that make a drastic change in the health and look of your smile.

Although our preference is to always save teeth, that cannot be the case in all circumstances. On occasion, removing the tooth is the best long term option.
At Bateman Dentistry, we never remove a tooth without first explaining how and when it can be replaced. Whether it is an implant, fixed bridge, or removable partial tooth, our goal is always to provide treatment that is in the best interest of the patients. We carefully explain your options before taking any action.
For patients that already wear removable dentures or partials, mini dental implants are an affordable option to help stabilize your oral additions. Because Bateman performs this as a one-day procedure, patients can continue their daily routines and almost immediately recognize the positive impact that mini dental implants can have on their lifestyles.
On average, mini dental implants are 30-40% of the cost of normal implants. If you are interested in learning more about this option, our Bateman dentists are happy to talk you through the process.

Before we perform any gum procedure, our dentists check the health of your gums. Gum health is vastly important to our team because poor gum health can lead to an array of threatening health concerns, including:
