Quick, Easy, & Painless Oral Surgery
We’re perfectly aware that oral surgery is no one’s favorite thing. As much good as it can do for Renton smiles, the phrase itself makes many people cringe. This is why whenever a patient comes to see us for oral surgery, we do everything we can to make sure they are completely comfortable before, during, and after their procedure. If you ever need to have oral surgery, we’ll be able to do it in such a way that you’ll be amazed at how easy and smooth the process can be.
Dental implants are the most comprehensive and long lasting tooth replacement solution available today, and we’re one of the few offices that can complete the entire procedure right here in Renton. This even includes the surgical placement, which is a minor procedure in which a patient often only needs local anesthetic for it to be completely painless.

Thanks to root canals, we can often relieve the most severe dental pain while saving a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It’s one of the most useful treatments we have, and thanks to modern dental techniques, it’s now a completely painless procedure. That’s right! Despite what you may have heard over the years, getting a root canal is no more painful than a regular filling. How can we do this? Simply click on the link to get more helpful information.
Our first priority is always to preserve your natural teeth, but sometimes the best course of treatment may involve extracting one. This can be the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be repaired
- Advanced gum disease has deteriorated the bone beneath a tooth
- To make room for a partial or full denture
- To make room for orthodontic treatment
- To replace a weakened tooth with a stronger dental implant
- To remove an impacted (stuck) or infected wisdom tooth
We’ll always use a gentle touch when performing your extraction. We’ll answer any questions you might have, and we’ll sufficiently numb the area using local anesthetic. Often, patients are completely unaware of when their tooth is actually removed because Dr. Kim’s touch is so light.
In the case of a wisdom tooth extraction, you’ll be put under a gentle form of general anesthesia, so you’ll be asleep during your treatment and have little to no memory of it afterward.
