Simple, Impacted or Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Your dentist may recommend that you have a tooth extraction for a number of reasons, the most common reason is damage to the tooth structure which cannot be repaired, severe tooth decay, tooth abscess, or a failed root canal treatment.

 

Biopsy and Oral Pathology

This procedure is designed to detect any abnormalities in the oral tissues. All of our soft tissues should be smooth or pink, if your dentist detects an area that is discolored, raised or abnormal then this test should be done. Once you have had a private consultation with our surgeon and a complete examination of your oral tissues and x-rays, he will make a recommendation for treatment it could be either a biopsy or complete removal of the abnormal tissue, therefore some patients will require only observation and annual examination in order to screen for changes in the tissue.

Like all other oral surgery procedures they are done under local anesthesia, our surgeons and their team are committed to providing a safe, efficient environment while giving you the personal care and attention you deserve.

 

Implants

Dental implants are alternatives to removable dentures or bridges and are used for cosmetic or functional reasons, the main component is a highly engineered  titanium  screw designed specially to be placed in the bone to replace missing teeth and it acts like artificial roots, after placing the implant screw in the bone a zircon crown will be placed on it to take over the original function. It highly resembles natural teeth because of the retention it gains from the surrounding bone. Replacing the missing teeth by means of implant dentistry will provide you better comfort, esthetics and harmony of your face with better function in smiling, chewing and biting.

Implants are made of titanium, that doesn’t cause any allergic reaction, and is accepted by the body.

 

Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting

Bone grafting

There are some cases where patients suffer from bone loss and recession in the jaw after a tooth has been removed, the jaw begins to recede or resorb, leaving an area of thinned bone with less height, this case highly affects the success rate of other dental procedures such as placing implants or dentures and making it impossible to perform the treatment ,so in this case a procedure called bone grafting is done in order to restore the bone height and width in affected areas, some bone grafting procedures are very simple and only require placing a bone grafting material and other cases requires transplanting bone from one area of the jawbone to the needed area.

Sinus lifting

The maxillary sinus Is a hallow cavity in the skull situated above the roots of the upper molars, in some cases excessive bone recession occurs in this area after extraction of the upper molars and the bone depth can recede to a thickness of just a few millimeters, and if an implant was placed it will protrude into the sinus so the solution would be performing  a specialized bone grafting procedure called sinus lift which involves lifting the soft tissue of the sinus floor and bone graft beneath it , creating adequate depth to accommodate a dental implant.

 

Platelet Rich Fibrin 

PRF is considered one of the latest advances in oral and maxillofacial surgery to provide the patient with successful and predictable outcome. The procedure involves withdrawing a blood sample from the patient and then isolating the fibrin-rich platelets from the patient’s blood which is a very important biological component to speed healing, then placing it in the site of treatment whether it was bone grafting ,implant placement or other surgical procedures.  PRF can be used in different surgical procedures and the main advantages are that it speeds healing in the treated are, reduces post-operative discomfort, stimulates bone and soft tissue growth and provides successful surgical procedure outcomes.
