Protecting Your Teeth and Gums with Oral Surgery
Our practice specializes in providing a variety of dental surgery options for patients in need of advanced treatment. Our services include the following procedures:
Gum grafting: Advanced periodontal disease can cause the gums to recede, exposing the root of the tooth. With a gum graft, we repair the gum line to a healthier state, making your teeth more secure and preserving your smile aesthetic.
Ridge augmentation: The alveolar ridge is the part of the jaw bone surrounding the tooth roots. This bone deteriorates after an extraction, altering the shape of the face and making dental implants difficult to secure. Ridge augmentation seeks to restore the jawbone shape and density, making it stronger and healthier.
Sinus lifts: Also called sinus augmentations, this procedure adds bone density to the upper jaw area that separates the mouth and sinus cavity. When bone density here is lost – usually due to tooth loss or periodontal disease – it can become too thin to support an implant. Adding bone volume and raising the sinus cavity provides the bone integrity for successful implant placement.
Implant placement: These restorations are composed of a titanium implant set in the jaw bone and topped with an abutment and crown, and can be used to replace a single tooth up to a complete dental arch.
Extractions: A tooth may need an extraction for multiple reasons. Most commonly, extraction is performed due to severe decay, overcrowding, or when the tooth has become impacted (erupting at an angle and pushing against nearby teeth). Most adults require a wisdom tooth extraction, as their mouths are too small to accommodate the third set of molars.
