The surgical dentistry procedures at Dr. Gehrig’s office include most extractions, biopsies of soft tissue and mini implants. Services also include preparation for and applying complete dentures, immediate dentures, partial dentures, implant retained dentures and partials. Surgical dentistry may involve root canals, crowns, veneers, bridges and other minor applications for your dental or cosmetic needs. Dr. Gehrig will refer you to highly qualified specialists in the Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie area for more complex oral surgery.
Patients receive thorough examination, evaluation and consultation before Dr. Gehrig proceeds with necessary oral surgery. Extractions may be necessary because of decay or shifting of certain teeth from damage. Simple procedures remove teeth that are not comfortably visible or partially hidden. In some cases, crowns, partial dentures or implants can protect your teeth for health or cosmetic reasons. Other issues may call for extractions, including teeth that haven’t developed properly and block the function of other teeth or preparation for bridges, braces or cosmetic measures. Tooth replacement may be necessary because of accidents. Patients can have their damaged or lost teeth repaired or replaced when coming to a dentist for immediate attention.
