You may not think that our Santa Rosa, CA team really understands how you’re feeling about the fact that you need to come in for a dental extraction. You may think that since we are a team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons, we have trouble connecting with and empathizing with your experience as a patient. However, that’s not the case! We fill the role as patients, too, and as a result, we are actually acutely aware of the details. We know that at first glance, you may feel perfectly fine about requiring tooth removal. However, it’s the little particulars and worries that cause some underlying anxiety. Now, ready for some good news? We can help you feel relieved!
You have probably heard the phrase before, “It’s all a matter of perspective.” While you may appreciate this idea, you may find that when you’re in the midst of experiencing tooth loss and figuring out how to address it, you may feel a bit snarky with the desire to respond with something like, “Nope! I don’t think so! I’m definitely missing some teeth and regardless of the outlook, that’s still going to be true!” Of course, we understand! However, our Rohnert Park, CA team reminds you that when you apply the idea of perspective to how you deal with your missing teeth, well that is where the real magic comes in! Consider the difference between your outlook and ours on common dental implant topics to see just what we mean!
You probably don’t have any doubts about preventive care because, of course, you have been following through with brushing your smile, flossing your smile, and keeping up with recommended dental visits for most of your life! Or at least, that’s the goal. Now, you may wonder: Once you have dental implants in place, what’s all of that prevention got to do with your smile and your prosthetics? Is it still just as important or is this something you can slowly back off of and dismiss altogether? In short, our Santa Rosa, CA team reminds you that you should keep those habits strong, practicing them as you always have. As for why…
We know why children lose their teeth, and we consider that a happy and expected part of growing up. When an adult loses a tooth however, it is a more serious matter. In some cases, usually in young adults, there might be a planned extraction for wisdom teeth in Santa Rosa, CA, which does not generally require a restorative procedure. However, there are other situations that may leave you facing tooth loss as an adult, and there are implant restorations that can bring your smile back, and in some cases even improve it. (more…)
Are you worried? Is your concern geared not so much toward the fact that you need a dental extraction but you’re primarily curious and focused on what happens once you go home? Perhaps you’re concerned about dry socket, a problem that occurs when you disrupt your body’s natural scabbing process, during which a clot forms within the extraction site. While this is a possibility, our Santa Rosa, CA team reminds you that it’s very easy to recover without a single hiccup, assuming you follow our guidelines! Let us help ease your mind, so you realize that following through with essential tooth removal is no biggie!
We know that one of the most amazing things about summer is how freeing it feels! You’re suddenly no longer bundling up in a chunky sweater, as you sit indoors but are instead throwing on your swimsuit, jumping into the pool, and spending lots of time outdoors!

You could end up losing a tooth or dealing with other damage! The good news? Our Rohnert Park, CA oral surgery team can help you navigate swimming season, so you have fun … and all without a smile care in the world!
