Gentle, Comfortable Oral Surgery for Your Family
At Modern Dental Health, we pride ourselves in offering comprehensive dental care under one roof, so we offer oral surgery services as well as general and cosmetic dentistry. Whether you need a simple tooth extraction, wisdom tooth extraction, or dental implant placement, you can have your procedure performed at the dental office you know and trust, ensuring that you are just as comfortable undergoing oral surgery as you are with a teeth cleaning. Our goal is to make you feel at ease during the entire process, using compassion, a gentle touch, and safe sedation methods.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, will cause no problems if they have plenty of room in the jaw to erupt and do not come in at a bad angle. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth are rarely in perfect alignment, and in many cases, they become impacted and erupt either partially or not at all. Without removal, your problematic wisdom teeth can cause swelling and infection of surrounding gum tissues or damage to your teeth and jawbone. With great care and precision, your oral surgeon at Modern Dental Health will remove your wisdom tooth under local anesthesia. If you need a stronger anesthetic to help you relax, we also offer oral sedation with the use of antianxiety medications.
Dental Implant Placement
Another specialty of our practice is dental implant placement. After administering a local anesthetic, and offering a stronger sedative if you need it, your oral surgeon will create an opening in your gums so that he can reach the underlying jawbone tissue. Next, he will precisely place the small titanium cylinder in your jawbone. A process called osseointegration must occur before your crown or other restoration can be placed on your implant. With osseointegration, the bone tissue integrates with the implant over the next three to six months. Once the artificial tooth root is firmly anchored into your jaw, you can return to your Lodi, Sacramento, Stockton and Sparks NV.dentist for placement of your crown.
