Saving Your Smile With Oral Surgery Services
Tooth Extractions – If your tooth is too damaged to save, Dr. DiBona may recommend that the tooth be extracted from your mouth. The extraction process is quick and with minimal pain, as Dr. DiBona is highly qualified and experienced to perform the procedure. We also extract wisdom teeth to prevent pain and keep the rest of your smile healthy.
Ridge Augmentation – Ridge augmentation is simply the process of rebuilding your jawbone back to its natural shape and strength. This procedure strengthens your jaw if it is too weak to receive dental implants. It also often improves patients’ appearances by evening out the jawline.
Sinus Lifts – Sinus lifts are used to make sure your dental implants have enough room to be placed in your upper jaw and enough bone to support them. You may not realize it, but your sinuses (air-filled cavities) are very close to the roots of your upper arch of teeth. They can sometimes get in the way during dental implant placement, but a sinus lift will help you be prepared!
Gum Grafts – We use your own gum tissue to repair exposed tooth roots due to gum recession, which can cause pain and sensitivity. Gum recession is often caused by gum disease, but it is also hereditary. It is important to treat gum recession to end sensitivity but also to protect the roots of your teeth from exposure to bacteria.
Bone Grafts – This procedure provides you with extra bone material in your jaw to better support dental implants. A bone graft is not always needed, but it is especially common for patients who have been missing teeth for several years. The bone has become thin over time, and a bone graft will rebuild the area so that you can have the tooth replacement you deserve.
Socket Grafting – If you’ve lost a tooth, a material can be put in the socket to preserve your underlying bone, keeping the space ready for a replacement tooth. This is very common for patients who plan to have a dental implant placed, but socket grafting is helpful for many patients who are having an extraction.
Guided Bone Regeneration – In some cases, your body can do the work to rebuild bone! This treatment involves the placement of a small membrane between your bone and gum tissue to stimulate the growth of both, leading to a stronger smile. Ask us if you qualify!
