Our office can provide a full scope of dental services. Dr. Kushner provides all your surgical needs as well as providing implant placement and fabrication of your final dental restorations. Some of the most common surgical procedures provided in our office are extractions, removal of wisdom teeth, dental implants, bone grafting, and apicoectomy.

Root Canal


An apicoectomy, also called root end resection, is a procedure intended to remove infection from the root tip and the surrounding tissue. It is indicated when an infection continues after root canal therapy. The unhealthy tissue is removed along with the end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to prevent re-infection of the root. The bone naturally heals around the root.

If you lost yours


Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution rather than having a removable partial or complete denture. Implants provide excellent support and stability for dental replacement. Dental implants are anchors that act as tooth root substitutes. Providing you with many tooth replacement options. In some cases, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed and a temporary restoration can be placed allowing immediate function.

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During your consultation visit, we will address your specific needs and considerations. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.



Dental Bridges


Painless fixes


When upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is not possible to place dental implants in this bone. There is a solution called a sinus graft or sinus lift procedure. In this situation, donor bone is inserted between the maxillary bone and the sinus floor. After healing, dental implants can be inserted. The sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants when years ago there was no other option other than wearing dentures.

Line them all up


When tooth removal is necessary, we can perform simple and complex extractions. If you choose, we may be able to also replace the missing teeth with dental implants.



Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. We utilize the latest advances in dentistry and state-of-the-art technology.

Beautify your smile


Bone grafting is sometimes necessary to supplement the bone volume present, allowing implants to be anchored firmly. The graft replaces missing bone, promoting your body to regenerate new bone. This new bone growth strengthens the grafted area by forming a bridge between your existing bone and the grafted material. Over time your own newly formed bone will replace much of the grafted material. This gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, and it also gives us a chance to more effectively restore esthetic appearance and functionality.

Bass of your heart

Honestly a great dental experience. I recently visited Dr. Kushner’s office for an infected Crowned Molar. The Receptionist Jillian immediately greated me & was super friendly & I instantly felt relaxed. The Surgical Assistant, Irina, was also very nice & made me feel comfortable. Dr. Kushner is just incredible. 1st, he clearly explained everything without any rushing. I had a bunch of questions since I have heart disease. Upon agreeing that I wanted to go ahead with the extraction. I barely felt the injections & I honestly felt no pain at all. He had the tooth out in about 20 secs. Irina & Dr. Kushner worked so well together it was like their hands were connected.
