Dental Implants and Bone Grafting - Our practice is well known for having a special interest in bone grafting of all kinds, as well as placement of dental implants. For the patient, this special interest translates into a vast amount of experience and expertise in these areas:
- Bone grafting or implants done at the time of tooth removal
- Grafting to stabilized bone for the health of surrounding teeth
- Grafting of the upper jaw sinuses to gain additional bone for implants
- Rebuilding small to large areas of the jaw where bone is missing
- Placement of implants with special esthetic considerations
- Implants for single teeth, bridges and even multiple implants to allow full arch restorative like the All-on-4 or Teeth in a Day concepts.
Wisdom Teeth Removal – Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are removed very commonly because most jaws are not large enough allow them to erupt into function and be able be cleaned properly. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause infections, adjacent tooth bone loss, shifting of teeth and formation of cysts or tumors. Most people will have wisdom teeth taken out sometime during their lives to prevent or treat these outcomes.
Treatment for Impacted Cupids (Canines) - This involves the surgical exposure and bonding of an orthodontic bracket and chain to assist the orthodontist in the movement of the impacted (not erupted) tooth into its proper position.
Sedation and Anesthesia Options - With the advanced training that our surgeons and staff have undertaken, we are able to offer several sedation options for treatment in our office:
TMJ Disorders – Jaw Joint Disorders can have a significant impact on your oral health as it impairs the
ability to enjoy comfortable oral function. Jaw Joint Disorders usually involves painful mouth opening or closing and
chewing. Typical symptoms can be facial pain, jaw joint popping and/or clicking; jaw locking open or closed and recurring headaches.
Snoring/Sleep Apnea – Sleep apnea is a common but severe disorder occurring while you are
sleeping and temporarily blocking your airways. There are many types of surgery available for sleep apnea and snoring.
If severe snoring or sleep apnea and other methods of treatment have been ineffective, your oral surgeon may perform
surgery to correct these problems.
