With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Grellner knows how to make your wisdom tooth extraction supremely comfortable.

The Ideal Age for Wisdom Teeth Removal

The timing of your wisdom extraction is critically important to ensuring an optimally comfortable experience. As we age, our roots quickly harden and mature - in fact, a teenager's jawbone is considerably softer than that of someone in their 20's. When a mature tooth root is pulled, it can potentially damage the nerve below the tooth, causing numbness. With more than three decades of experience, Dr. Grellner can create a wisdom tooth extraction plan for you that reduces discomfort and complications, while expediting healing.

Are you missing teeth, or have dentures that slip out of place? You might benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted at in the jawbone.

Sedation

Dr. Grellner has developed an IV anesthesia technique that virtually eliminates the uncomfortable side-effects of nausea and dizziness so often associated with IV sedation, regardless of the depth of the anesthesia. With this technique, the anesthesia effects dissipate in about half the time of standard techniques. Dr. Grellner is licensed to administer anesthesia himself, and does so with infusion pumps that deliver constant micro-doses of medication, smoothing out the typical “roller coaster” anesthetic patients might experience elsewhere. His patients can enjoy returning to a steady relaxed but clear state of mind and body quicker, returning home much more alert than ever before. Read More About Sedation

Bone Grafting

If you have suffered tooth loss, trauma, or a congenital jaw defect, you may have a weakened jawbone. To fortify the jawbone, a bone graft may be necessary. Dr. Grellner has the skills and expertise to perform a bone graft that will efficiently prepare your jaw for placing dental implants. His highly specialized technique (called a ridge split) can minimize the risks involved in this delicate surgical process. Patients can also enjoy a quicker recovery time, so they are on the road to receiving their dental implants sooner.
