Common Oral Surgery Procedures
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. Another form of tooth extraction, wisdom tooth removal, is often more complex and can take up to a few hours to complete.
Bone grafting is a specialized oral surgery treatment that involves replacing bone levels in the jaw. Usually due to missing teeth, bone loss is ongoing and needs to be treated to support a denture or dental implants. A bone grafting procedure involves taking bone from the patient or a donor source and placing it at the site of bone resorption. Once the sutures are in place, the area is allowed to heal for a few months to let the bone grafting material and jawbone integrate.
Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth and are made up of three parts—the post, abutment, and restoration. Dental implant posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone to anchor a new tooth or set of teeth. Modern dental implant surgery is precise, especially when CT guided technology is used. Immediate load of a temporary restoration may also be available for qualifying patients!
Expert Ridge Augmentation Surgery
Adequate bone volume in your jaw is necessary for both its physical appearance and for securing dental implants to restore your missing teeth. Dental implant posts, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone, need the ridge to be at the proper height, width, and density to remain secure.
