Oral Surgery Treatments
Tooth Removal/Extractions – To keep the rest of your smile safe, we may need to remove a permanent tooth if it’s damaged beyond repair or could affect your other teeth. With dental sedation, our caring staff will make sure this is a painless process.
Wisdom Tooth Removal – These are the last teeth to come in. Many people cannot accommodate another set of molars, so they often cause pain and other dental problems. Our 3D guided surgery techniques save you money by avoiding specialist referrals. Our trusted in-house oral surgeon can help you with these problem teeth.
Socket Preservation – Losing a tooth can lead to bone loss. The jawbone tends to get narrow and lose its shape. This procedure corrects that by placing bonelike material in the area to stimulate bone growth.
Tissue Graft – Gum grafting, or gingival augmentation, is a procedure that is done to treat gingival recession or to augment thin gingival tissue areas. Healthy and thick gum tissue is extremely important for teeth and for dental implants. Without healthy gum tissue, out teeth and implants are much more susceptible to bacteria, disease, infection, and loss of teeth or implants. If only a slight amount of recession is present, it may be adequate to simply change home hygiene habits to prevent the problem from worsening. However, the more severe the recession, the more difficult it is to graft gum tissue back to their proper location, so it is important to address this early. Remember, the issue is the tissue
Bone Grafts – Bone grafts are a great way of building up areas of insufficient bone and making dental implants a possibility. What materials are used for bone grafting?
ALLOGRAFT: Most situations indicate the use of a bone substitute known as ALLOGRAFT. This is simply human cadaver bone processed at FDA qualified donor locations. The cells or antigenicity are removed to prevent any form of a host-donor reaction to take place. This allograft simply serves as a scaffold to hold the space and allow YOUR BONE cells to come in and replace it over time.
PRF/PRG-F (platelet-rich fibrin / platelet-rich growth factors): PRF or PRG-F is your own blood cells and growth factors that are drawn up and condensed in a centrifuge. The concentrated amount of your growth factors can be used in many ways to GREATLY enhance how quickly you heal after surgery and has been shown to improve surgical outcomes in most situations.
