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.
Another option we offer at DFW Oral Surgeons is general anesthesia, both in our dental office and in the hospital.
In certain circumstances, bone grafting is also needed for jaw deformities. These deformities could be something you were born with, occurred as a result of an injury or is a side effect of the presence of tumors in the jaw.
At DFW Oral Surgeons, we can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and halt the progress of bone atrophy, using dental implants.
Because facial trauma involves not only physical harm, but also emotional scarring, it is essential that you have a specialist on your side that you can trust to help minimize the scarring and maximize your ability to fully recover.
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.
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.
Single Tooth Extractions
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone.
It is recommended that wisdom tooth extraction occur early on in your youth in order to have it extracted before the roots have completely formed in your mouth.
When the sinus cavity gets in the way of the placement of a dental implant, we may need to do a sinus lift procedure in order to avoid damaging the sinus cavity.
In cases where bone loss is extreme and the patient desires a permanent tooth replacement option we can perform a procedure known as ridge augmentation.
Ridge expansion is one form of ridge augmentation that is commonly used to bring your mouth back to a healthy state, usually in order to support tooth replacement options like dental implants.
When a patient has significant issues with the vast majority of their teeth, they might find themselves in need of reconstructive surgery. Much like the name implies, reconstructive surgery is a surgical procedure that focuses on restoring functionality to someone’s mouth and jaw.
