Oral Surgery

Nobody Wants to Have Surgery, But We’ll Make It Easier.

“It’s like pulling teeth.” Most of us have heard that expression, maybe even automatically used it ourselves without even thinking. But if you do think about the actual act of extracting teeth, that everyday idiom reinforces the idea that having a tooth pulled is an unbearable ordeal—and we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be! Of course, Garrison Family Dentistry offers other oral surgery services than just tooth extraction, but our philosophy about all those procedures remains the same. No matter which procedure we are doing for you, you can count on expertise, compassion, a kind chairside manner, and listening skills that make the experience as stress-free as possible for you—and if you want or need a full-mouth reconstruction, we look forward to being part of your positive transformation!

Dr. Garrison and Dr. Alissa Becknell will always try to keep your natural teeth in your mouth where they belong, but sometimes tooth extraction can’t be avoided. For these times, we’ll perform an extraction as quick and easy as possible for your maximum comfort and convenience.

Dental Implant Placement

The first part of the dental implant process is placement of the titanium post in the jaw. Garrison Family Dentistry places your implant post with ease and finesse, allowing it to heal and ready itself for the final crown restoration later.


Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction—like Smile Design in Cosmetic Dentistry—is a way to make over the mouth but focuses more on restorative procedures than cosmetic ones. Full mouth reconstruction can be made up of any dental service or combination of services we offer. If you’re ready for a big change, schedule a consultation today!

Bone Grafting

When the jawbone of an implant candidate is too soft or not thick enough to support an implant long-term, bone grafting becomes necessary. Chewing puts a lot of pressure on the bone, and there needs to be a solid foundation for a successful implant.

Root Canal

Root canals get a bad rap, but they’re not as bad as you’ve heard! Dr. Garrison or Dr. Alissa Becknell surgically withdraw infection from the pulp area inside the tooth before sterilizing and sealing the tooth chamber. After infection removal and sealing is complete, the tooth will be restored to form and function with a beautiful crown restoration.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is another procedure that increases the likelihood of implant success. The upper back jaw near the sinus area is one of the more difficult regions for implant placement. Sinus lift surgery raises the sinus cavity and also involves grafting. Dr. Garrison and Dr. Alissa Becknell can discuss sinus lift with you in more detail.
