Oral Surgery

Sometimes oral surgery is a necessary aspect of healthcare. At our holistic dentistry practice, we utilize the most conservative methods and techniques to promote comfort and optimal oral health.

Well Rooted Dentistry routinely treats individuals and families in the Providence, RI area. However, we also provide top-tier concierge care to patients across the country. No matter what your dental needs, we can help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile for years to come.

Tooth Extractions

As holistic practitioners, we prefer to save natural teeth whenever possible. However, sometimes a decayed or damaged tooth must be removed to preserve your overall oral health. In these instances, we can provide you with gentle extractions using the most advanced techniques available.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Dr. Robert Bouffard, our onsite periodontist, has extensive training in oral and periodontal surgery, and specializes in wisdom teeth removal. Oftentimes, we recommend removing wisdom teeth to prevent oral infections and preserve the health of your neighboring teeth. During a consultation at our practice, Dr. Bouffard can determine if this treatment is right for you.

Dental Implant Surgery

No other teeth replacement option is as lifelike as dental implants. They also boast impressive success rates of up to 98 percent. At our holistic dentistry practice, we place and restore zirconia implants – a biocompatible alternative to traditional titanium implants. Our team is trained and experienced in dental implant placement and can manage all stages of treatment right here in our Providence, RI practice location.

Laser Periodontal Therapy

Traditionally, periodontal surgery was performed with scalpels and sutures. It was quite uncomfortable for patients – and because of this, many individuals avoid necessary treatment. Today, we offer laser periodontal therapy. Our advanced Biolase laser targets infected gum tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. This procedure is not only more comfortable than traditional surgery, it also reduces the risk of postoperative bleeding, infection, and other complications.

Adjunctive Therapies to Promote Healing

As a holistic practice, we offer a number of adjunct therapies to promote healing. We will explore the three most common below.

PRF

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is obtained from the patient’s own blood sample. The sample is spun in a centrifuge, and a mixture of white blood cells, fibrin, platelets, proteins, and stem cells are separated from the rest of the blood. This mixture is used to promote bone healing and regeneration for a number of procedures, including tooth extractions, bone grafting, and dental implant placement.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a gas that is applied directly to the oral cavity. The negative ions actively reduce the presence of harmful bacteria. As a result, healing is encouraged. Ozone therapy can also be used to reduce the risk of cavities.

Laser Dentistry

Our high-tech laser can be used for a range of applications. In addition to cauterizing tissue as it incises, it also disinfects. Because of this, we routinely use laser energy to promote socket healing following extractions.
