Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. Generally, a simple procedure, tooth extraction can be completed right in the dentist’s office. During this procedure, your dentist gently pulls your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. We can also perform wisdom tooth extractions in many cases. The process to remove wisdom teeth is often more complex and can take up to a few hours to complete. However, we have the training and technology to offer affordable wisdom tooth extractions right here in our office!
Healthy teeth depend on strong foundations. Bone grafting is a specialized oral surgery treatment that involves restoring healthy bone levels in the jaw to give better support to the teeth. Bone loss may result from gum disease or missing teeth. It’s usually ongoing and needs to be treated for best outcomes with dentures and dental implants. A bone grafting procedure involves placing new bone material at the site of bone resorption. This material may come from your own healthy bone tissue, or from a donor. In many cases, the area will be allowed to heal for a few months to let the bone grafting material and jawbone integrate before moving forward with other treatments.
Similar to bone grafting, ridge augmentation lets us add bone tissue where you don’t have enough to support needed treatments. Whether from periodontal disease, trauma, injury, long-term denture use, or developmental problems, deformities in the boney ridge can prevent effective implant placement and also affect the shape of your face. Ridge augmentation is a type of oral surgery that can help regenerate lost bone and create a better shape for the jaw. Once it heals, we can restore you to full dental function and a more esthetic smile with long lasting results.
Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth and are made up of three parts. The post replaces the root of a missing tooth, and the abutment and restoration combine to replace the visible top portion. Dental implant posts are surgically inserted into the bone of the top or bottom dental arch to anchor a new tooth or set of teeth. Modern dental implant surgery is precise and has great, predictable outcomes. Some patients may even be able to get an immediate restoration and leave with their new teeth the same day!
For dental implants in the upper arch, we need to make sure there is enough bone tissue to accommodate the post—the artificial root of your new tooth. However, some patients’ natural anatomy may only leave a thin shell of bone between the upper jaw and the sinuses. With just a tiny incision, we can carefully move the membrane lining the sinus and add bone grafting material. This new, thicker bone will create a great foundation for implants and the complete restoration of your dental function.
