Precision Dental Specialties specializes in a variety of surgical procedures that will improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
Many patients need a bone graft, or ridge augmentation before implantation is possible. Osseointegration, the process responsible for the many benefits of dental implants, requires an adequate amount of bone in the jaw. If osseointegration does not occur, implant failure is virtually guaranteed. Fortunately, we offer ridge augmentation to improve the quantity and quality of deteriorated bone. In many ways, ride augmentation allows patients to receive dental implants when it would otherwise be impossible.
Our wisdom teeth are not the only ones that can create problems. Some teeth can become impacted or infected due to eruption issues. Dr. Scott E. Bulloch may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate painful symptoms after other treatments have been exhausted.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.
If you experience dental trauma be sure to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Injury or trauma to the face can result serious problems for your oral health. If one of your teeth becomes loose or knocked out, you may need oral surgery.
Oral pathology biopsy refers to the diagnosis and study of problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. The goal of oral pathology is to cure oral diseases with causes that are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact causes of a problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan.
