If you need oral surgery in Franklin, TN, you couldn’t be in any better hands than you are with Dr. Rick and Dr. Sully at Sullivan Dental Partners! With extensive expertise and specialized training in the latest advances in oral surgical techniques, they offer their patients safe, comfortable oral surgery.

Here at Sullivan Dental Partners, we offer expert tooth extractions, comfortable and efficient dental implant placement, and advanced laser surgical options.

Comfortable Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is one of the most common oral surgical services, and there are several cases where we would recommend the procedure:

  • Hopelessly damaged or decayed teeth need to be removed. 
  • An infected or abscessed tooth can’t be saved with a root canal.
  • A tooth has become loose due to advanced periodontal disease.
  • Incoming wisdom teeth are crowding existing teeth.
  • One or more teeth need to be removed for dentures or orthodontic treatment.

If you feel anxious about upcoming oral surgery, rest assured that we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation that will help soothe your anxiety and ensure you have a comfortable procedure.

Expert Dental Implant Placement

Choosing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth offers many benefits over other tooth replacements like dentures and bridges. The process starts with an in-office procedure where our Franklin, TN dentists place the implant surgically in your jawbone.

Implant placement surgery is not as complex or uncomfortable as you might think. We use advanced 3-D cone beam technology that shows us precisely where to place the implant. The procedure is efficient, and since we numb the area before we begin, you won’t feel any pain.

Trust Experience in Oral Surgery

Most people are apprehensive about oral surgery, so it’s helpful to have peace of mind about the expertise of the professionals treating you. 

Both of our dentists are dedicated to advanced training in all the latest techniques in oral surgery. This is a legacy passed down in the Sullivan family from Dr. Rick’s grandfather, who was the Oral Surgery Chief at the University of Tennessee Dental School.
