Build Up Your Bone Quality For Dental Implants
Although our most common oral surgery is a tooth extraction, given Dr. John Miller’s expertise with dental implants, it’s not surprising that we also offer several procedures that can make you a better candidate for implants.
In addition to gentle tooth extractions, we offer these treatments:
- Ridge Augmentations – We can use various techniques to increase the quality and/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 a dental implant.
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 offer state-of-the-art 3D CT scanning in our office to take images of your jaw and prepare for a successful oral surgery.
Get Relief From Your Dental Anxiety
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 the correct amount. It even 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 and oral sedatives. We’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable before any work is done.
