Nobody is thrilled to consider the prospect of oral surgery, but here at Signature Smile Family Dentistry, we do everything possible to ease the minds of our patients. That is one of the reasons we are the top choice of so many people in Indianapolis, IN when they need some form of oral surgery. It is an unfortunate fact that good dental care sometimes requires surgical work, but we do everything possible to maximize our patients’ comfort and minimize their recovery time.
There are several common oral surgeries that we perform here at our practice:
- Wisdom Tooth Extraction: Wisdom teeth usually begin to come in when people are in their teens or early 20s. Unfortunately, most people do not have room in their mouths for these additional teeth, and so they can push other teeth out of alignment and cause significant discomfort. In these cases, if the wisdom teeth are not removed, there can be serious complications. However, the team here at Signature Smile Family Dentistry will work hard to ensure that your recovery time is minimal.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are an alternative to bridges or dentures for replacing missing teeth. With dental implants, a small metal post is inserted into your jawbone, and a crown is placed on top of the post, giving you a natural looking and permanent false tooth.
- Bone Grafting: Missing teeth can sometimes lead to the degeneration of the jaw bone where the teeth used to be. This can leave no suitable anchoring point in the jaw for the installation of dental implants. Bone grafting strengthens and regrows the jaw bone so that patients can then benefit from dental implants.
Whatever type of oral surgery you need, Indianapolis, IN trusts the experts here at Signature Smile Family Dentistry, and you can too. If you would like to schedule oral surgery, or you have questions about any of the procedures we offer, contact us today. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
