At Berardi Dentistry we take careful consideration regarding all surgical cases. While he was a dental resident with the Kaleida Health system, Dr. Berardi received advanced training in oral surgery. He also is an expert at assessing if your dental or oral condition requires a referral to one of our partner oral surgeons for more extensive care.
Common oral surgeries performed or assisted by Dr. Berardi include:
As dentists we are trained to save teeth. But in some circumstances a tooth may need to be extracted. Fortunately, we have the ability to analyze the condition of the diseased tooth and properly recommend its comfortable removal.
At Berardi Dentistry, a digital x-ray will be taken of the problem tooth for Dr. Berardi to analyze. In most cases, he will be able to remove your tooth. Some cases may require the referral to an oral surgeon. These cases include teeth with curved roots and impacted wisdom teeth.
Dental implants are becoming the most common method for replacing teeth. If Dr. Berardi suggests an implant to replace your tooth, he may refer you to an oral surgeon. The surgeon will place the implant in your jaw bone.
Throughout treatment Dr. Berardi will work closely with the oral surgeon in a teamwork approach. He will help manage your implant process from start to finish. Once the implant is successfully placed, Dr. Berardi will continue the restoration process by placing a custom-fit crown, or tooth portion, into the implant, for the optimal look!
