Here at Houston Uptown Dentist we offer a variety of surgical procedures. Anything ranging from wisdom teeth to a single tooth that needs to be taken out and a bone graph to get ready for implant, we're happy to help you.
We always will make sure you are at ease with local anesthetic, comfort items, and dental sedation options to relieve dental anxiety.
Tooth Removal / Extractions
If a tooth has become too severely damaged or infected, we can perform a gentle tooth extraction so the problem does not spread to other areas of your mouth. We will then recommend a tooth replacement option to fit your situation.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your wisdom teeth may come in without any problems, but it’s likely you will need a wisdom teeth removal. Using state-of-the-art digital X-rays, we will carefully assess your situation before recommending wisdom teeth removal.
If you’ve been told your jawbone is not thick enough for dental implants, we may be able to help with a bone grafting procedure. Using healthy bone tissue or bone tissue replacement, we will strengthen and thicken your jaw, providing a solid foundation for replacement teeth.
If your gumline has receded, possibly due to gum disease, we can repair it with a gum graft. Gum grafting is a reliable way to replace missing gum tissue, improve your gumline, and protect your roots. A tissue is transplanted from one area of your mouth and relocated to the affected area. 1-2 teeth can be treated per surgery.
If traditional gum grafting is not right for you, we offer another form, The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This is a much less invasive treatment, only involving the outer gums. There are no multiple surgical sites, no sutures, minimal discomfort, and a full arch can be treated at one time.
