Build Up Your Bone Quality for Dental Implants

At The Smile Center, we provide most of your family’s dental surgery needs, so you won’t have to worry about seeing an outside oral surgeon. Although our most common oral surgery is a tooth extraction, Dr. John Miller has expertise with dental implants. So it’s not surprising that we also offer several procedures that can make you a better candidate for implants.

We offer these treatments:

  • Ridge Augmentations – We can use various techniques to increase the quality or quantity of your tissues and bone structure in areas where you’ll receive dental implants.
  • Sinus Lifts – This surgery adds bone to your upper jaw and ensures there’s room for implants.
  • Bone Grafts – We add small amounts of bone or bone-like material to your jaw to get it in shape for dental implants.

Dr. Miller received special training in all these procedures at the Medical University of South Carolina, so you’re assured of excellent care! Plus, we use state-of-the-art 3-D CT scanning to take images of your jaw and prepare you for a successful oral surgery.

We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia for your oral surgical procedure. We use a computerized system called The Wand® that enables us to locate the best site for your anesthesia and use just the right amount. You won’t feel a stick when it’s administered. It also helps lessen residual numbness after your procedure so you won’t have problems talking, eating, and drinking.

Plus, we offer two forms of dental sedation to relax you: laughing gas or an oral sedative. We’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable before any work is done.
