All-On-4®The All-On-4® treatment concept was developed to provide edentulous patients (patients with no teeth) with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis.
AnesthesiologyAnother option we offer at DFW Oral Surgeons is general anesthesia, both in our dental office and in the hospital. We have a partnership with a well-established and experienced dentist anesthesiologist who visits our office once or twice a month to assist with patients who need to be completely asleep for their treatment.
Bone GraftingIf you lose teeth, your jawbone no longer gets the daily stimulation that those teeth provided. Without this stimulation, new bone cells are not created and your body begins to reabsorb the bone. This can also occur if periodontitis disease is present as bone loss is a side effect of this advanced form of gum disease. Regardless of the reason, any type of bone loss eventually causes your face to start to take on a different look. This is the look that the elderly are so commonly known for, the 'sagging look,' giving your face a sunken in appearance.
Dental ImplantsA dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution. Read more about our dental implant services
Facial TraumaFacial trauma is a serious emergency that should be treated by an OMS. The face is a delicate region of soft tissues, bones, nerves and blood vessels, each of which need specialized care when damage occurs. Choosing to have the expertise of an OMS on your side, you have the benefit of having dental and medical experience as you determine the best method to overcome your injuries.
Jaw SurgeryYour jaws play an important role in many of your daily functions including talking and chewing. When there is a misalignment, whether minor or major, you can suffer from a wide range of difficulties. Orthognathic surgery, or jaw surgery, helps to minimize these issues, allowing you to restore normal function to your mouth. This surgery, when performed by an OMS, can help to enhance your ability to chew, talk and even breathe, if the issue is severe enough.
Oral PathologyThe inside of your mouth can tell a lot about your health. The problem lies in the fact that many people do not pay attention to the warning signs that their mouths are showing, putting their lives in danger when cancer is left to grow without treatment. An oral surgeon is the best person to look inside your mouth and see any abnormalities that need to be inspected further to determine the level of care that you need. It is possible to perform your own self-examination of your mouth on a monthly basis, but letting a professional fully inspect your mouth is also a wise choice for everyone.
Single Tooth ExtractionsA tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
Wisdom Teeth ExtractionWisdom teeth are the last teeth that typically come into a patient's mouth. Sometimes they are problematic and other times they are just fine. The typical age to see the development of these teeth is between 17 and 25 years of age, which is why they have been given the name 'wisdom teeth,' as you receive them during your wiser years. When the teeth come in upright and with no infection or decay, they can often be left alone with careful monitoring. In many cases, however, these teeth become easily infected or are impacted and unable to break through the gums on their own and need to be surgically removed by an OMS in order to preserve the health of the rest of your teeth.
