We manage and treat a wide variety of problems related to the entire oral cavity. Our treatments include, but are not limited to, surgical extractions, wisdom tooth removal, uncovering impacted, unerupted teeth, apicoectomies, bone grafting, sinus lifts, soft tissue surgeries, periodontal surgery and implant placement.
When tooth removal is necessary, we can perform simple and surgical extractions using local anesthesia or IV sedation. If you choose, we can also replace the missing teeth with dental implants.
Dental Implants are a great advancement in dentistry as they permanently replace missing teeth in a way that no previous dental technique was able to accomplish. Implants are anchors made out of the strongest titanium materials, that are implanted into the bone and then covered with a cap or denture. They are stronger than a natural root and will never require a root canal or filling. An implant will help maintain the health and shape of the bone in the jaw area, and neighboring teeth do not need to be filed down to make room for it.
Before dental implant surgery, bone grafting is sometimes necessary to supplement the bone mass of the patient's jaw so that the implants can be anchored firmly. The graft not only replaces missing bone, but also helps your body to regenerate its own bone. This new bone growth strengthens the grafted area by forming a bridge between your existing bone and the graft material.
Wonderful bedside manner like doctors had in the good old days when they took time to explain things slowly and answered all of your questions. Wonderful staff and comfortable office. Highly recommend. I feel very lucky to have him as my surgeon.
Seriously.....THE BEST oral surgeon and staff. The top quality and care given over the years is the normal experience at this practice, they are just amazing.
