Complex Reconstructive Treatments Can Improve Your Dental Health

Some dental health conditions, including missing teeth, inadequate jaw bone mass, and impacted wisdom teeth, call for complex surgical treatment. Dr. Jason White is experienced in providing his patients with the oral surgery they need in the utmost comfort and safety, and helping them to achieve lasting relief and restored health. Dr. White offers advanced anesthetics and minimal sedation dentistry to help you experience maximum relaxation throughout these procedures. He also offers platelet-rich protein treatment, a cutting-edge treatment that uses samples of your own blood to significantly accelerate the healing process following your procedure. If you are in need of oral surgery, please contact our LubbockWest Texas office today to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. White.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an incredibly effective solution for restoring your smile after losing one, several, or all of your teeth. These threaded titanium posts are inserted directly into the jaw, where they fuse with the bone, providing natural-feeling support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Receiving dental implants typically involves at least two surgeries, and six to eight months for healing to take place. With proper care, patients can expect to enjoy 40 years or more of incredible support. Implants make speaking and eating with dentures much easier than when dentures simply rest on the gums, secured with a mild adhesive. Because your body will begin resorbing bone cells when tooth roots are absent, dental implants also help maintain valuable bone mass in your jaw.

Extraction Site Grafting

If you want dental implants, but a long-untreated gap in your smile has resulted in a significant amount of lost bone mass, a bone graft can help you. Bone needed to augment your jaw can come from your own body – from a location such as your chin, hip, or shin bone – or from processed bone material. The graft requires about six to nine months to heal and fully integrate with your existing jaw bone before it can accommodate a dental implant.  Dr. White’s drafting materials are all produced by locally-owned company, Osteogenics®.

Tooth Extraction

If decay has gone untreated for too long and spread too far, a tooth extraction may be necessary to create a healthy new foundation for rebuilding your smile. Fortunately, powerful anesthetics and sedatives make this process far less painful than ever before. In fact, in most cases, patients experience little or no discomfort whatsoever.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Even if your wisdom teeth are healthy and free of decay, complications can take place during their development, causing them to become impacted below the gumline, or to cause surrounding teeth to become crowded and misaligned. If you are experiencing facial swelling, gum swelling, pain, or infection, it may be a sign that your wisdom teeth may be impacted. Dr. White can extract wisdom teeth, helping you to protect the integrity of your other teeth, while retaining the ability to bite, speak, and chew properly.

Flap Surgery

If the gums do not conform properly to the teeth, pockets of bacteria and other debris can develop, causing serious damage to the teeth, gums, and bone. Flap surgery, also known as pocket reduction, is a method of removing these deposits and reshaping any damaged bone. The end result is a reduced pocket that allows gum tissue to properly conform to your tooth.
