Sedation Delivers Anxiety-Free Surgical Procedures

While oral surgery isn’t likely on your bucket list, we do everything possible to make this experience more pleasant. Local anesthesia is usually adequate for minor tooth extractions to alleviate pain, although it doesn’t ease dental anxiety. To make more complex procedures such as wisdom tooth extraction comfortable and relaxing, we offer several types of sedation, including oral consciousness and IV sedation.

Common Oral Surgery Procedures

Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is too damaged to save, tooth extraction in Clovis, CA, is often the best option for preventing the spread of infection and eliminating discomfort. Our dentist gently pulls your infected or failing tooth without disturbing healthy bone or gum tissue during a standard tooth extraction procedure. We’ll provide instructions to ensure the healing blood clot doesn’t become dislodged and you experience a complication-free recovery.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Although you may have 32 permanent adult teeth by your early 20s, your jaw is probably too small to accommodate four wisdom teeth (third molars). When third molars can’t fully erupt, wisdom tooth extraction is the best option to prevent pain, a gum infection, cysts, or damage to adjacent teeth. When we remove wisdom teeth in Clovis, CA, gum tissue needs to be cut to access and remove the tooth (sometimes in pieces) and sutured back in place, so we recommend doing so with your choice of sedation.

Bone Grafting

A bone graft provides a foundation that encourages your bone to regrow into the space and may be required before dental implant surgery. After an incision in your gums, the bone surface is prepared, and the transplanted material is placed. Then, the bone graft is protected by the placement of a collagen membrane, and your gum tissue is closed with small sutures.

Sinus Lift

Sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces behind your cheeks and on top of your upper back teeth. Some of the roots of these natural teeth extend into your sinus cavities, and after tooth loss or extraction, a thin wall of bone separates them from your mouth. This type of oral surgery is done to strengthen and grow bone in the sinuses to enable dental implants to be securely placed in your upper back jaw.

Dental Implant Surgery

Although dental implants are the number one tooth replacement solution, successful outcomes require high surgical expertise. To replace a missing tooth with dental implants at Clovis Family Dentistry, the screw-like titanium implant post is placed first, and the bone can heal and grow around the implant. A support post (abutment) is placed on the implant, and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on the abutment.

Same-Day Full Mouth Dental Implants

Same-day full mouth dental implants offer a quick and effective solution for individuals needing complete tooth replacement. This procedure involves extracting any remaining teeth, placing dental implants, and fitting temporary prosthetic teeth all in a single day. The immediate restoration allows patients to leave our office with a full set of functional and aesthetically pleasing teeth. This method not only enhances oral health and function but also significantly boosts patients’ confidence and quality of life.
