Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants can restore your confidence in your smile. These titanium anchors provide support for artificial teeth that not only look natural, but also allow you to eat normally, restore natural contours to your mouth, and prevent bone deterioration. We use the latest technology to bring you single-stage implantation surgery.

When properly cared for, dental implants can last 50 years or more! Implants have a 98% success rate with predictable, incredible results.

Benefits of surgery:

  • Restore natural look to your smile
  • Easier to care for than other prostheses
  • Preserve the integrity of underlying bone
  • Make eating much more comfortable
  • Prevent bone deterioration
  • Restore natural contours to your mouth
  • The latest dental implants look and feel virtually indistinguishable from regular teeth

Wisdom Teeth

In some cases, wisdom teeth can grow in without issue. However, complications are common. Impaction, pain and swelling, plaque build-up leading to tooth decay, gum disease, cysts, abscesses, and shifting teeth can all occur. Removing the wisdom teeth before they cause serious complications is important to your oral health.

Benefits of surgery:

  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Reduce plaque build up
  • Reduce risk of infection or gum disease
  • Eliminate tooth decay
  • Protect surrounding teeth and gums
  • Allow more room in a small mouth

Damaged Tooth Extraction

Sometimes, even the most skilled dentist cannot save a tooth. Severe decay, fractures, and abscesses could require tooth extraction. Damaged teeth put you at risk for painful infections that, left untreated, could travel to the heart and other areas of your body. Tooth extraction is the safer alternative.

Benefits of surgery:

  • Protect surrounding teeth from infection and decay
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Reduce risk of infections and potential cardiovascular issues
  • Reduce risk for gum disease

Bone Grafting

When you lose a permanent tooth, it’s common for atrophy to occur in the area of the jawbone where it once sat. This thin bone is unsuitable for implants. Luckily, with advanced technology, we are able to regrow bone right where it’s needed using bone grafts.

Benefits:

  • Improve chewing
  • Reduce soft-tissue pain
  • Improve the aesthetics and function of crowns, implants, and dentures
  • Prevent future problems that are common with bone loss situations

Oral Pathology

When you’re suffering from ulcers, abscesses, or other lesions, your dentist may want to biopsy the area to make sure nothing else is amiss. Pain in the jaw and soft palate – without obvious cause – can be a sign of serious illness. Getting a biopsy (removing a small tissue specimen for microscopic examination) could be the key to finding out what’s going on. Once the biopsy is done, your oral surgeon will send it to a lab to be examined by a qualified specialist.

Benefits:

  • Could detect serious disease (such as cancer) early on
  • If caught and treated early, could prevent serious disease (such as cancer)

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where the tongue gets sucked against the back of the throat during sleep. This disrupts sleep, causes low blood oxygen levels, and could lead to cardiovascular problems. When other methods of treatment fail, it may be necessary to perform oral surgery in order to tighten the soft palette.

Benefits of surgery:

  • Reduces risk for high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and erectile dysfuntion
  • In severe cases, decreases risk of death
  • Reduces daytime sleepiness and/or fatigue
  • Can improve memory loss and morning headaches (if those are current symptoms)

Anesthesia

For many patients, undergoing any dental procedure can be stressful. We offer sedation dentistry to make your visits anxiety-free.

Anesthesia is only administered by a trained professional, and you are closely monitored until your anesthesia wears off. Patients with cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses require special precautions while under anesthesia, though the biggest side effect is nausea.
