Types of Implants
- We offer multiple options for dental implants including single implants, implant-supported dentures, and All-on-4.
Implant-supported dentures are a compromise between conventional dentures and dental implants. They are a good option for patients who are looking for a way to improve their ability to chew and smile. Implant-supported dentures are removable, and you’ll be able to take them on and off as needed. They do not need adhesive and function like natural teeth.
- Single Dental Implants are secured by a small screw that is inserted into your jawbone in the space left by a missing tooth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full upper or lower arch of teeth. Dental implants are built to last with many successful implant placements lasting a lifetime!
- All-on-4, or full-arch fixed implant bridges, are an alternative to placing a full set of teeth with traditional implants. All-on-4 dental implants avoid the need for bone grafting. Four implants replace all of the teeth on the bottom or top of your mouth. Although the procedure is called an All-on-4, the number of implants that are required is contingent on the anatomy and desired results. We can offer 2-6 implants depending on the individual case.
- Sinus Lift Surgery – Sinus lift, or sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure that increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw between maxillary sinus on either side of the nose. The procedure is completed when dental implants cannot be placed because there is not enough bone in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw. Bone loss occurs for many reasons including periodontal disease.
Soft Tissue Grafting
- Soft tissue grafts, also called gum grafting, are used to combat gum recession. Gum recession happens for many reasons including trauma, over brushing, periodontal disease, and aging. The goals of soft tissue grafting are to cover the exposed root, develop gum tissue that may be missing due to excessive gum recession, and stop further tissue loss. Gum recession can lead to root exposure which causes severe discomfort and sensitivity to cold, warm, and hot foods. Gum grafting is also used to improve aesthetics. Recession causes teeth to appear uneven in size, and this procedure can be used to make teeth appear more symmetrical and healthy.
Wisdom Teeth & Impacted Extractions
- An impacted tooth is a tooth that has not yet erupted and hasn’t fully moved through the gum tissue. An impacted tooth can be very painful and can be caused by several things including another tooth, cysts, bone, and dense soft tissue. Surgical extraction of impacted teeth is needed when a tooth has not erupted.
- We offer anesthesia and wisdom teeth extractions. It is best to remove all wisdom teeth at the same time to minimize risk with sedation and maximize healing time because healing from two extractions is about the same as four.
- We hear all the time from patients, “I want to be asleep and remember nothing.” If you are thinking the same thing, well then IV sedation is the option for you. Our team of CRNAs will focus on you and your comfort while the doctor will focus on your treatment needs. Once again, you will need a friend or family member to take you home after the appointment, and hopefully they do not record you!!! If fear of the dentist is holding you back from receiving the dental treatment that you need, please reach out for a free sedation consult now.
