With oral surgery, our goal is to save the person's tooth. That's our utmost goal because there's nothing better than your own teeth. But, in certain cases, you're not able to save that tooth, so it needs to be extracted and we need to find other options to replace it with, such as dental implants. We provide that service. Also, a lot of times, people have some dentures they've been wearing for a long time that are loose-fitting, especially on the lower denture. A lot of times, we can provide the service of putting some implants on the lower teeth and the upper to help secure that denture in place and make it more usable for the patient.
When you choose Yellowstone Family Dental for your oral surgery, you can trust that you’re getting a combination of dental expertise and down-home care. Call us today at 406-206-9889 to schedule your appointment. And if you’re in pain, don’t wait! We have same-day appointments for dental emergencies.
Enjoy A Pain-Free Smile
You can trust that we’re never going to put you in pain. If we do recommend oral surgery, it will be so that you can get out of pain. It’s also sometimes necessary to prevent complications or to get you ready for dental restorations.
We will numb your mouth before we begin any procedures, and if you have dental anxiety, you can opt for one of several sedation options to keep you relaxed. With our in-house CT scan, you’ll get a detailed plan from start to finish.
We provide several types of oral surgery to keep your smile healthy:
- Tooth extractions are the most common type of oral surgery. That includes wisdom teeth. If we cannot preserve your natural tooth, we may recommend that you allow us to carefully remove it and, if necessary, create a tooth replacement.
- If you aren’t able to receive dental implants because you have lost too much bone in your jaw, we may be able to perform a ridge augmentation.
- You can also strengthen your jawline by opting for bone grafts. This procedure has the cosmetic benefit of making you look healthier, but it can also help you meet eligibility conditions for dental implants.
- Another way to prepare your jaw for implants is through sinus lift surgery. We’ll use our in-house CT scan to precisely move your sinus and build up your bone before placing implants in your upper jaw.
Preventing dental complications is always better than curing them, and sometimes that includes preventive oral surgery. Call Yellowstone Family Dental at 406-206-9889 or contact us online to see if you’re a candidate for oral surgery in a free consultation.
