Our dental office provides bone grafting treatments. Bone grafts are used to reinforce the structure of the jaw prior to receiving tooth implants. The added strength and structural support provided by adding bone to the jaw can ensure the best possible results for your implant procedure.
Tooth extraction is usually scheduled when a tooth has been severely damaged by an accident or decay and is no longer viable. Surgical tooth extraction is performed when the tooth has not erupted from the gum. Your dentist will discuss your options before deciding to remove your tooth, allowing you to take the appropriate action for your personal preferences and your budget.
Oral pathologists specialize in treating diseases of the mouth and gums. These experts can identify the early signs of cancer and provide you with treatment plans designed specifically to suit your needs and produce the best outcomes for your situation. If your dentist spots signs of oral cancer during your regular 6-month check-up, a biopsy may be required to determine the type and extent of the problem. If cancer is responsible for your symptoms, your dentist may refer you to a pathologist to create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Depending on the type of dental procedure, your medical needs, and your personal preferences, your dentist may suggest sedation as an alternative to local anesthesia for your upcoming treatment. Sedation methods include the application of nitrous oxide, topical or injectable anesthetics, or IV sedation. IV sedation is designed to put you into a sound sleep that, eliminates pain and allows an oral surgeon to perform an extensive procedure. We want to ensure your comfort, so we will help you decide which sedation method is best for your situation.
IV sedation methods are delivered using an intravenous drip that allows anesthesia to be strictly controlled during a dental procedure. Unlike local anesthetics, IV sedation allows patients to sleep through their procedures, eliminating the pain and stress associated with these treatment options.
For dental implants slated for upper gums, it may be necessary to perform a bone graft in the upper jawbone. This can affect the placement of the sinus membrane and could necessitate the repositioning and lifting of the sinuses to make room for the added bone in the upper jaw.
Most dental plans cover oral surgery but check with your provider to be sure before confirming your procedure. We will have to evaluate the severity of your condition and the anticipated procedure before providing an estimate for your costs. Rest assured; our administrative team will work with you to ensure your care is as affordable as possible.
