Sedation Dentistry For Oral Surgeries
We provide a wide range of advanced sedation dentistry services to help people with dental anxiety or special healthcare needs, or who require lengthy surgical procedures. During your surgical consultation, Dr. Patrick Vuong will evaluate your sensitivity to various sedatives to determine the best medication and dosage suited for you!
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, Dr. Patrick Vuong is a specialist in using dental implants to replace missing tooth roots and provide natural-looking results!
They are also suitable for people with dietary restrictions and can be kept indefinitely. We offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Bone grafting, also known as natural bone regeneration, is a surgical procedure that can be used to treat periodontal (gum) disease. This disease can damage the jaw bone and make it impossible for an implant to be placed. If you have gum disease, Dr. Vuong may recommend the placement of a tissue graft from an area on your body that has healthy bone tissue similar to that in the jaw. This surgical procedure helps promote healthy bone growth and regeneration in the infected section of your jaw. Once enough bone has been generated, a dental implant can be inserted.
Sinus lift surgery allows for more security for dental implants. Dr. Vuong performs sinus lift surgery with his patients to increase the stability of an implant placed in the maxilla. The maxilla is the upper jawbone which supports the roof of the mouth. When there is not enough bone height to support an implant, we can perform a maxillary sinus elevation to help your jaw better support your new smile restoration!
Extractions are often just the first step in a series of treatments for replacing missing teeth. After extraction, it is crucial to restore the jawbone by placing a bone graft directly into the empty socket where the tooth's roots once were. This helps recreate the natural shape of the gums and jaw after an extraction and can prevent jawbone deterioration where a tooth socket once was.
Ridge augmentation can help protect the smile and make it possible for our patients to receive dental implants or use dentures in the future. In addition, the ridge augmentation procedure can:
- Recreates a natural bone and gum ridge
- Improves aesthetic appearance
- Increases stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduces gaps between the gums and dental restorations
Dental extractions can be performed to remove a tooth in an emergency procedure, such as trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem, such as wisdom teeth removal.
Dr. Vuong and his team provide extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort or have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but simple extractions are also performed if the tooth appears above the gum line. Before any extraction, we will perform a thorough dental exam, complete with digital x-ray images, to determine the extent of the damage.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
For many patients, wisdom teeth can cause many problems when they erupt or become impacted. If you or your teen have pain in the back of the mouth due to wisdom teeth eruption, Dr. Vuong will use his advanced diagnostic tools to determine when it's healthiest for you to undergo this procedure.
At Smile Avenue Family Dentistry, we perform all different types of wisdom tooth removal surgeries, including those on impacted wisdom teeth! Don't wait until your wisdom teeth are causing pain or other problems—make an appointment with a member of our skilled team to receive your customized wisdom tooth removal plan.
