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.'
At Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC we know oral surgery 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 Crown Point, IN dentist office!
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 Experienced Dentists Use Top Technology for Oral Surgery
Dr. Mark Van Buskirk and Dr. Michael Krischke 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. To remove the risk of allergic reactions, our office is a latex-free environment.
They also use technology like panoramic imaging to eliminate any guesswork and make your extractions as easy as possible. With panoramic imaging, our dentists 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!
We Keep You Comfortable During Oral Surgery
We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth before an oral surgery procedure, so you won’t feel a thing! And we 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 as early as 8 a.m. and as late as 7 p.m.
When you’re ready, our dentists at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC are happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you, including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures.
