We Offer Services to Pediatric Patients
Dental implants are a permanent long-term solution to the loss of a single tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants have the ability to preserve your bone density without straining or damaging the adjacent teeth in your mouth. The benefits provided by dental implants often make them the unsurpassed solution to tooth restoration. Using only the safest materials, such as medical grade titanium, and latest techniques in dental implant surgery, our surgeons can address your dental implant needs. Whether you need a single tooth or multiple teeth replaced, we have an implant solution for you. We work with the leading companies in dental implants, such as Nobel Biocare, Keystone, and Zimmer. When an affected tooth is removed, it is often possible to place a dental implant at the same time. This dental implant will bond with the natural tissue in your jaw to create a strong base for the restorative dental crown to be placed. Many patients feel as though their dental implant is as strong, if not stronger, than their natural tooth, restoring your ability to eat dense foods and returning your natural-looking smile.
The All-On-4® procedure restores a full-arch of missing teeth with a permanent prosthesis, which is secured in your month with dental implants. The All-On-4® procedure restores your smile and your ability to eat an all-inclusive diet. The unique dental implant placement techniques utilized during this procedure allows many patients who may not have been considered implant candidates previously to receive a fixed denture, improving their smile and their oral function. The All-On-4® procedure can often be performed in a single day, allowing you to receive your dental implants and a temporary prosthetic that will later be replaced by a permanent titanium denture. At Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, the All-On-4® procedure can significantly improve your overall quality of life and confidence. The prosthetic should be treated like your natural teeth and requires brushing and flossing. These teeth will allow you to consume a whole food diet.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the teeth that grow into the very back of the mouth and often cause oral health problems, such as dental crowding, which can lead to more severe side effects. It is not uncommon for wisdom teeth patients to experience inflammation in the affected area, a sore throat, headaches, and ultimately infection around the wisdom tooth or teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth grow beneath the gums and have not fully erupted into the mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth are at risk for the development of cysts which can enlarge and hollow out the jaw, causing permanent damage to the adjacent bone, teeth, and nerves. Many of the problems created by impacted wisdom teeth can develop without symptoms. At Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, we offer a variety of sedation options to ensure optimal comfort during your treatment. Usually, wisdom teeth extraction patients recover relatively quickly and require only a few days rest. With the experience and expertise of our oral surgeons, Dr. Strauss, Dr. Sarathy, and Dr. Oliphant, you can rest assured that you are in the best hands possible.
