For patients who are missing teeth or who anticipate the need to have teeth extracted, dental implants represent one of the top restorative options.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The third molars tend to come in during the teen years and the early 20s. They can often cause problems, requiring them to be removed.
Tooth loss, when left untreated, can sometimes result in the loss of bone matter. This can compromise the appearance of the face and also limit the utility of dental implants.
One of our top priorities is ensuring that our treatments are as safe and comfortable as can be for all of our patients. As such, Dr. Minto is pleased to provide a range of sedation options, including both localized anesthesia and IV sedation.
In addition to wisdom teeth, other teeth may sometimes require removal, whether because they are broken or decayed beyond the possibility of repair. Dr. Minto can assist with either simple or complex tooth extractions.
A successful dental implant requires secure placement. However, patients who experience bone loss in the upper jaw may not have enough bone to secure an implant. At Minto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery near Robertsdale, AL, we safely employ the sinus lift procedure to move the sinus membrane upward and add necessary bone to the upper jaw.

Real People, Real Reviews
“Dr. Minto and his staff provide excellent service. I had two molars extracted using just local numbing for the procedure. The extractions were pain free thanks to Dr. Minto’s expertise. Fortunately, I didn’t need to take any medication after I went home. Thank you Dr. Minto and staff for making my visit such a positive experience.”
