Oral surgery may, at some point, become a necessity to you. You want to know that you can receive the care you need in a comfortable, calm environment that you are familiar with. A family dentist office that also does oral surgery is a fantastic benefit to you. Welcome to Pioneer Dental Group!
Our office can accomplish oral surgery that other family dentist offices can’t. We can provide the care you need in your familiar, friendly dental office so that you can be on your way without having to travel around town looking for an oral surgeon, sharing your private information with yet another office, and then coming back to your family dentist for post-op care. Get it all done in one place!
Dental implants are hugely beneficial to you, but not all patients are able to receive dental implants without oral surgery. One of those surgeries is called a sinus lift. Your sinus cavity generally rests very close to your upper jaw. In order to place dental implants in that upper jaw, we sometimes have to lift the sinus cavity out of the way so that it is not damaged.
This particular problem is not common, but if it is present, there is no other way to take care of the issue than with a sinus lift surgery.
A more common problem is too little bone for safe dental implant placement. Some patients have been without teeth for so long that their bone is too narrow or weak to support a dental implant. Some dentists will dismiss these patients with no hope, but we offer bone grafting. Through a surgical process, we can place bone material over your current bone in an effort to create a foundation for your dental implant.
Once the bone has healed, the dental implant will fit and be secure for the rest of your life!
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
It is very common for young adults to need the removal of their third molars, or wisdom teeth. Our mouths are often too small for these teeth to come in successfully, which means the teeth turn the wrong way, get stuck, or cause a lot of pain for your other teeth. Many young adults will experience a wisdom tooth removal between 17 and 25 years of age. The wisdom teeth removal process is completed very quickly, and many patients are able to return to school or work the following day!
In addition to wisdom teeth, we are also able to extract other troublesome teeth that have lost their ability to function in your mouth. The process is often much simpler than the process for wisdom teeth, so don’t hesitate to have the needed extraction!
