Oral Surgery Services
Many dental cases require surgery to truly repair the specific issue. Our office provides a range of oral surgery procedures. Dependent on the severity of the case, Dr. Updike is trained and ready to perform extractions. We are willing to assist in referring necessary cases as well.
When teeth become infected, the infection can be removed in two ways. The tooth can usually be saved with a root canal or it can be extracted. We understand that finances are not always in a position to save teeth. Also, some teeth become too decayed for a root canal. In these cases, Dr. Spencer T. Updike can perform extractions. Some cases also may be referred to an oral surgeon, depending on the complexity of the case.
