SURGICAL PROCEDURES in Flagstaff, AZ

Surgical Procedures in Flagstaff, AZ

Surgical procedures are common in dentistry, and our dentists have been trained to perform surgeries in ways that reduce patient anxiety and minimize post-operative pain.  In our office, dental surgeries are  performed as outpatient procedures. Depending on the surgery, generally patients can generally return to their normal routines within a few days.

Dental Implants

Implants are currently the best replacement for missing teeth and this service is offered to patients in our office.  The placement of a dental implant involves surgery to insert them into the jawbone. The implant is generally a titanium screw that is lightweight and biocompatible. After an implant has been placed, the area usually requires 3-6 months of healing to allow for the implant to fuse with the surrounding bone. After the fusion and the healing are completed, a crown is made and fitted to the implant to replace the missing tooth..

Tooth Extractions

This surgery is an outpatient procedure that involves removing a decayed, broken, infected, or otherwise compromised tooth.  Depending on the tooth, surgical intervention may be required.  Pre-operative and post-operative measures are taken by our dentists to minimize discomfort and expedite healing during and after the procedure.   

Bone Grafting

When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone around the extraction site will reshape itself to fill in the new hole.  This results in bone loss, both in height and width.  If a dental implant is desired later, a bone graft is recommended at the time of the extraction.  This involves the placement of a filler material to maintain the dimensions of the bone while new bone can be formed into the space. This provides a better foundation for the  implant later.
