We provide a comprehensive approach to your health, and because of this standard, we suggest a proactive approach to your health.
Our hygiene protocol includes thorough documentation of your oral health. The mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body. Regular dental cleanings can help improve overall health, especially if you have diabetes, heart disease, or are pregnant. Our hygienist will measure your gingival health and determine if you need a general cleaning or a deep cleaning. Whichever the solution, we will explain your options during your appointment.

Tooth Extraction & Wisdom Teeth
Do you have a tooth in pain? Or one that is cracked or damaged? If the tooth cannot be repaired with a filling, crown or cap, then a tooth extraction may be required. Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Your comfort is our primary goal. We do both simple extractions as well as surgical extractions of badly decayed teeth or impacted teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
In our late teens or early twenties, our third molars, commonly known as our wisdom teeth, begin to come in. In many cases, the jaw is simply not large enough to accommodate the extra teeth, and they become impacted, meaning they remain under the gum.
Once impacted, wisdom teeth can cause complications including infection, crowding, damage to other teeth, cysts that permanently damage the jaw and other complications. There are cases as well where the wisdom teeth penetrate through the gums, possibly at an awkward angle, also necessitating wisdom tooth extraction. While it is difficult to predict whether your impacted teeth will cause such damage, it is highly likely complications will arise.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is a common procedure performed under local anesthesia. After surgery, patients can expect varying levels of swelling and discomfort. However, we do everything possible to minimize pain and recovery time.
We offer nitrous oxide sedation for more comprehensive procedures, or for those with dental anxiety. Upon your request, we also offer IV and general sedation through Nashville Office-Based Anesthesia (NOBA). NOBA has received extensive training in all types of dental surgeries providing you with expertise and personalized sedation options.
We use the most modern, low dosage dental x-ray equipment and follow ALARA. This is an acronym for “as low as reasonably achievable.”
We utilize tiny cameras to view the inside of your mouth in order to adjunctively diagnose, treat and explain your treatment plan.
