Oral Surgery Procedures We Offer
We always try to avoid extracting teeth, but sometimes it can be necessary! We are able to extract all teeth, including impacted wisdom teeth, so we’ll never have to refer you out to an unfamiliar office!
Teeth are generally extracted when they are fractured, severely infected or decayed, or your mouth is crowded. We’ll always explore all your options so that we can avoid extraction, but we will make sure you get the treatment you need!
As your gums recede, your teeth can become loose and eventually fall out. That’s why we offer gum grafting – not just for cosmetic reasons, but also to protect the health of your smile! Using soft tissue from elsewhere in your mouth, we’ll get your gums back to exactly where they need to be!
We also offer bone grafting, called ridge augmentation, which is essential for patients who want implants but lack the bone mass for successful placement. When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw starts to shrink, leading to smaller and smaller areas of healthy bone that can handle a dental implant. We are able to perform bone grafts using growth-stimulating compounds and bone taken from elsewhere in your body in order to get you ready for a successful implant procedure!
If you want to restore your smile in the most advanced way possible, dental implants are definitely the option you want! Dental implants are small titanium screws that are placed directly into your jaw and integrate with your bone over a few months of healing. Once your jaw is fully healed, we can attach an amazingly lifelike restoration to your implant, from a single tooth to a whole arch!
Implants placement at Highlands Ranch Smiles is done right in our office while you’re under anesthesia and sedation, if desired. You’ll be done before you know it, and within a matter of weeks, you’ll be able to enjoy a great new smile that’s just as stable and permanent as your original teeth!
