Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Northern Peaks Dental is proud to offer Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) treatment to promote proper healing and accelerated, healthy recovery for a selection of our surgical procedures.
PRF treatment is used to enhance healing, decrease pain, control inflammation, and reduce swelling for a number of top oral surgeries, including dental extractions and dental implant placement. The process behind PRF involves creating a substance made from white blood cells, fibrin, and bone growth factors taken from a vial of the patient’s blood. Formed from safe, natural biological materials, the substance can then be applied to the surgical site following the procedure, creating an all-natural seal that blocks bacteria and promotes optimal healing.
Using PRF is known to enhance the comfort and safety of the oral surgery performed. It’s also ultra-safe, as it never contains additives or preservatives — just protein-rich factors that accelerate a natural healing process! Northern Peaks Dental offers PRF treatment as an option for our wisdom teeth extractions, dental implants, and bone grafting procedures.

Missing one or more teeth? Dr. Godbolt specializes in permanent, durable smile restorations with dental implants!
Dental implants offer long-lasting and natural-looking results by using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous crowns can then be attached. Implants are a durable, trusted solution built to last a lifetime! They also require no dietary restrictions, making it easy to continue enjoying your favorite foods.
At Northern Peaks Dental, we offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Periodontal disease can cause significant damage to the jaw bone, making it impossible to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. For patients suffering from this condition, Dr. Godbolt may recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote healthy bone growth in the jaw. With this specialized treatment, your jaw bone will begin to regenerate and strengthen itself enough to support a dental implant.
Dr. Godbolt performs sinus lift surgeries to provide more secure dental implants. Sinus lift surgery, also known as maxillary sinus elevation, is performed for patients who do not have enough bone height to support a dental implant, or if the sinuses are too big or too close for an implant. This surgery uses a bone graft to promote greater support and stability for your restorative implants!
Surgical Tooth Extractions
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure after trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem, such as with wisdom teeth removal. If you experience an urgent dental emergency, call us right away!
Dr. Godbolt provides tooth extractions for patients who are experiencing persistent pain and discomfort or an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but simple extractions are also performed if the tooth appears above the gum line. Before every extraction, Dr. Godbolt will administer a gentle exam, using top technologies and digital x-rays to gain a complete perspective on the extent of the damage and the best treatment route.
Wisdom Tooth Removal & Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom tooth extractions could lessen your chance of you developing dental problems in the future, like tooth pain, decay, and crowding. This common procedure is generally recommended for patients in their teen to early twenties, but Dr. Godbolt will use his advanced diagnostic tools to determine when it's healthiest for each patient to undergo this procedure. Although not every patient needs their wisdom teeth pulled, keeping them too long can cause pain, orthodontic problems, and even severe infections. We will work with you to get ahead of any potential oral concerns!
Northern Peaks Dental is proud to provide the very best wisdom teeth removal services near Sandpoint, ID, and beyond. We provide a range of wisdom tooth removal services and even extract impacted wisdom teeth that become stuck in the jaw bone. Our skilled team is well-versed in safe, gentle wisdom tooth extractions!
Ridge augmentation is often performed after tooth extraction. The procedure involves placing a bone graft directly into the empty socket where the tooth's roots once were. This is done to help recreate the natural shape of the gums and jaw following the extraction, preventing jawbone deterioration and making it possible for patients to use dentures or receive dental implants in the future.
Ridge augmentation procedures have been proven to benefit the overall health and appearance of a patient's natural smile. The ridge augmentation procedure also promotes the following benefits:
- Recreated a natural bone and gum ridge
- Improves aesthetic appearance
- Increases stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduces gaps between the gums and dental restorations
Gums are the foundation of your healthy smile. Did you know that receding gums can weaken your teeth, causing dangerous root damage that could ultimately lead to infection and tooth loss? If your gum disease has caused considerable gum recession, we may recommend gum therapy to restore the health of your mouth. At Northern Peaks Dental, we offer surgical gingivectomies as well as regenerative gum tissue therapy with Alloderm.
Alloderm uses tissue grafting to maintain the integrity of the gum tissue and support tissue regeneration. This advanced system uses natural collagen to promote tissue growth, and is known for its ultra-effective tissue restoration and healing time!
We use advanced imaging technology to assess the state of your gum health before deciding on the best treatment plan for you. If you have questions or concerns about your gum health, call us for a consultation today!
A frenectomy is often recommended when one of the mouth's two frenums, bands of tissue located around the teeth and gums, impairs normal oral functions. The lingual frenum located around the tongue can sometimes restrict its movement, and surgery may be required to free the tongue and avoid impaired speech or swallowing. The project is simple and minimally invasive. Most patients are quickly returned to normal function with minimal post-operative discomfort!
