Dupont Family Dentistry will try to save your natural teeth if at all possible, but there are times when a tooth has to be extracted to keep you healthy. Crowded teeth, severely infected teeth, and teeth that have loosened due to gum disease may be weakening your bite structure.
The implant process is performed in-house from start to finish, but placement is where it all begins. An implant post is surgically placed in your jaw by Dr. Diehl or Dr. Hemphill, where it will be left to heal for several weeks before it can be completed with a crown restoration.
The purpose of bone grafting is to supplement the strength of the jawbone, which can build a solid base to host a dental implant for patients who would not otherwise be successful implant candidates due to bone loss or atrophy.
Root canals are a surgical procedure in which Dr. Diehl or Dr. Hemphill remove an infection from inside the tooth chamber, sterilize and seal the tooth, then top the tooth off with a restoration, such as a crown.
Full mouth reconstruction involves replacement or rebuilding of all the teeth in the mouth, which usually involves several different types of dental procedures. We will work closely with you to design a customized treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget.
We offer sedation dentistry options and extra amenities, such as weighted blankets, for your optimal comfort during oral surgery.
