Although I'm not an oral surgeon by specialty, I do do quite a bit of oral surgery in my practice. From simple extractions to surgical extractions, we can take care of that here. We do that so that our patients maintain the relationship with us and they don't have to go and meet another practitioner.
Dental Sedation: Keeping You Comfortable During Tooth Removal
Dr. Jennifer Perkins has removed countless teeth in her 22 years as a dentist, so she knows how to keep you calm and comfortable. She’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing.
If you would prefer to be more completely relaxed, we offer the option of dental sedation. You can arrive at our Huntsville, AL dental office relaxed (thanks to the medication) and will remain relaxed throughout your dental procedure. Our staff will monitor you the entire time. You’ll need to arrange transportation to and from your appointment.
Oral Surgery Services Offer Relief
In addition to extracting teeth, including troublesome wisdom teeth, Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS can perform these dental procedures:
- Gum graft. When gums recede, it’s not only uncomfortable, it endangers your teeth. She’ll skillfully attach tissue to the area where gums have receded, restoring them to health and retaining your teeth.
- Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. A more simple dental procedure to restore receding gums. Ask us if you are a candidate for this relatively new procedure.
- Socket preservation. Following an extraction, Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS can place a material to spur bone growth in your tooth socket and carefully seal it. This helps preserve your bone structure, which is especially important if you plan to get a dental implant.
Dr. Jennifer Perkins obtained her DDS from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. She is also a member of many professional organizations such as the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Alabama Dental Society, Huntsville-Madison County Dental Society, and Eighth District Dental Society. After 22 years of practicing dentistry, she’s still excited to help patients restore their oral function and give them their dream smile.
