At Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC, we know oral surgery in Crown Point can be a stressful undertaking. In many cases, it involves getting a tooth removed – and you probably aren’t too excited about that, even if it gets you out of pain. You’ll feel better about it, though, if an experienced dentist performs your procedure. And you’ll feel even better if you have multiple options for replacing teeth. You’ll find both at our office!Comprehensive prevention and pain free care Read Transcript
Sometimes no matter what we're presented with, we just can't save the tooth. We're going to have to extract it. More often than not, we can do that in office. There are some occasions where you may have to refer to an oral surgeon, but we can probably get you out of pain in the meantime. Here at the office, we're going to make it as comfortable as we can. We're going to make sure that tooth is plenty numb that you're not going to feel anything when we do it, so we can make a really difficult situation really very simple for you.
We here in the office strive to see patients regularly. If we can see you regularly, if you can come into our office and we can have you have your teeth cleaned every six months, if we can take x-rays as needed, if we can just see you in the office and examine the teeth and make sure that things are doing what they should, we can prevent a lot of big problems. It's way easier to catch something while it's small than let it go until it's big. It's much more predictable and much more easier on you if we can see you regularly and take care of the small stuff.
In addition, you’ll benefit from:
- Technology like 3D and panoramic imaging to eliminate any guesswork and make your procedures as easy as possible
- Local anesthesia for comfortable treatment
- Our latex-free environment to lower the risk of allergic reactions
Call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422 to discuss your oral surgery options. In addition to tooth extractions, our dentists can perform a bone graft to strengthen your jaw for dental implants.
Our Dentists Use Top Technology for Oral Surgery Procedures
Our dentists have more than 50 years of combined dental experience between them. They’ve performed countless extractions, including wisdom teeth, so they know how to quickly and painlessly remove teeth. They also use panoramic imaging to get a comprehensive view of your teeth and jaw. So, for example, they can see the exact location and position of wisdom teeth. As a bonus, we won’t need to place anything in your mouth to obtain the images!

One thing that I do is I try to make a post operative call after an extraction. Maybe that evening, I'll call the patient and say, 'Hey, how are you doing?' Maybe a patient's on Coumadin and they've gone off it for a couple of days so you can extract their tooth. It's nice for them to know that you're thinking about them. You shouldn't be afraid to ask a patient, 'Hey, how are you feeling? Does it hurt?' You'd be surprised how many people say, 'Not really.' And then there are some people who will say, 'Heck yeah, it hurts.' I say, 'Well, maybe some pain medication will help you manage the pain.'
We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth before an oral surgery procedure, so you won’t feel a thing! We also provide welcome distractions with amenities like:
- Free Wi-Fi
- A cup of Starbucks coffee prior to your procedure
- Warm towels to relax you
- Cable TV, so you can catch up on news or a favorite show as we work
If you’d feel more comfortable with a longer appointment time, it’s no problem! And if you find a quiet office more soothing, you can book your visit in the early morning or late evening. When you’re ready, our dentists will be happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you, including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures.
