Types Of Oral Surgery Procedures
At Smile Naples, we have an oral surgeon who comes to our practice to provide various oral surgery procedures to patients. The most common procedures performed here are:
Teeth that have failed to erupt properly and are surrounded by bone, or impacted, must be removed surgically so that the surrounding bone can be excised to access and extract the tooth. Wisdom teeth are the teeth at the greatest risk for being impacted.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants must be surgically inserted into the patient’s mouth.
Smile Naples streamlines the process of restoring the smile through dental implants, as we have an oral surgeon available for dental implant placement and we can provide the restoration supported by the dental implants, as well. Your entire treatment can take place at a single convenient location.
The following types of restorations can be supported by dental implants, depending on the number of teeth the patient must replace:
- Single Crowns
- Dental Bridges
- Overdentures (A full set of dental implant-supported dentures that can be removed from the mouth as needed)
- Hybrid dentures (A prosthetic arch that is fixed in the mouth when placed atop dental implants)
