Preserve Your Smile With Our Dental Surgery Experience
An oral surgery procedure may be needed for one of several reasons. No matter what your situation is that requires surgery, you can rest assured that you’ll be in good hands. Dr. Miller has received advanced training in several types of oral surgery from the Medical University of South Carolina. Our state-of-the-art 3D CT scanner helps ensure successful oral surgery by taking detailed images, which we use for planning before your procedure begins.
Below are a few procedures we routinely perform at The Smile Center:
- Teeth Extractions – Removing your tooth isn’t ever our first option. However, if your diseased or damaged tooth can’t be saved through restorative treatment such as a root canal, then we’ll gently remove it to protect your other teeth and gums.
- Bone Grafts – If your jawbone is not strong or thick enough for dental implants, Dr. Miller can add bone material to stimulate the growth of new bone cells. In a few months, your jaw will be ready for implant placement.
- Sinus Lifts – This procedure is a type of bone graft that adds bone to your upper jaw to make it strong enough for implants. It also moves your sinuses up slightly to make room for your implants.
- Ridge Augmentations – We can use one of several techniques to improve the quality and/or quantity of your gum tissue and jawbone structure. This procedure may be needed to get your mouth ready for dental implants, too.
