Oral Surgery

Some general dentists refer oral surgery, like extractions ,to specialists. Dr. Cowherd’s training and experience with oral surgery allow him to perform most routine procedures in the comfort of our Windsor Heights dental office. This means, you’ll enjoy peace of mind in the caring hands of the dental team you know and trust here at Walnut Creek Family Dentistry.

When a tooth is nonrestorable, or if you have too many teeth for your mouth, extraction may be indicated. We use a gentle technique and offer anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable. After your extraction, Dr. Cowherd can complete your treatment. We offer dental implants and bridges to replace extracted teeth, and we also offer space maintainers for orthodontic therapy.

root canalRoot Canals
In some cases, an internally infected tooth can be retained. If the pulp (nerve) of a tooth becomes infected because of a large cavity, fracture, or an injury, Dr. Cowherd may suggest root canal therapy. He will clean the tooth’s canal and fill it with a manmade substance, then secure a custom crown to protect the tooth. Modern procedures allow Dr. Cowherd to complete most root canals in one appointment.
