Dr. Nghi Tran, DDS, FICOI, offers several types of oral surgery procedures at his Garland, TX office. Dr. Tran has special training in dental implants, and he is a proud member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He also offers standard and surgical extractions, including the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. In addition, he performs several types of soft tissue surgery, which may benefit you if you suffer from gum disease or a related condition. At Hue Dental, PLLC, we proudly incorporate the latest technology in our treatment. Therefore, no matter what type of oral surgery you are going to undergo, you will enjoy a precisely planned procedure with minimal discomfort.
Of course, it is always good to save damaged teeth whenever possible. However, if your tooth is severely damaged or decayed, your dentist may suggest removing it and replacing with a custom-made restoration. In addition, he performs many wisdom tooth extractions. Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that typically erupt during the late teens or early 20’s. Like most people, you may not have enough room for the teeth, and they can cause severe crowding as they come in. In other cases, wisdom teeth can become impacted, which happens when they are unable to break through the bone or gum tissue surrounding them causing pain and/or infection.
Before performing an extraction, your practitioner will numb your tooth and the surrounding tissue. In cases of a simple extraction, he will loosen the tooth before carefully lifting it from the socket. If you have an impacted tooth, he may first need to remove the bone or gum tissue that is covering it. In either case, your treatment will be individualized and precisely planned thanks to our local anesthesia and precise techniques.
When you are missing teeth, dental implants can restore your smile, oral function, and self-confidence. We will first examine your jawbone with digital x-rays and our 3-D CT scanner. Not only will we be able to determine your candidacy for implants. We will also find the strongest areas of your jaw for implant placement. If you have lost bone volume, you may require a bone graft. This procedure can restore lost tissue, providing a stable base for your dental implants.
Prior to your surgery, Dr. Tran will numb your gums and jawbone. Often, he will provide additional sedation to help you relax during your procedure. Then he will create small incisions in your gums. Through these incisions, he will insert the titanium implant posts (artificial roots) into your jawbone. You may receive one implant or more, depending on the number of teeth you want to replace. If you are missing all of your teeth, we can often use the All-on-4® method to provide a full implant-supported, fixed denture. It will usually take four to six months for your jaw to heal around the implant posts. After this time, you will receive your permanent restoration.
If you are suffering from gum disease, we may recommend scaling and root planing. Using a soft tissue laser, your practitioner will remove pockets of bacteria and smooth the rough places on your dental roots. Other soft tissue surgeries include:
Often, Dr. Tran can perform these procedures with radiosurgery techniques. Radiosurgery procedures result in minimal bleeding and discomfort. Plus, treatment is often faster and requires fewer visits to the office.
