Every member of our caring team is committed to putting you at ease, no matter what type of treatment you receive. We will work with you to help overcome your anxiety about oral surgery by doing everything possible to help you relax during your procedure.
We won’t schedule your surgery until we’ve answered all your questions and explained why the procedure is necessary. With years of experience, Dr. Zavala and Dr. Lewcock have developed a gentle approach and know exactly what it takes to keep you comfortable. We make sure that someone is with you to provide support and encouragement before, during, and after surgery.
Dental Implant Surgery
Placing a dental implant is a two-step process. First, we must surgically place the implant in your jaw. After the implant has had a chance to heal, we use a dental restoration like a crown, bridge, or denture to allow you to chew and speak with ease.
Dr. Zavala and Dr. Lewcock are both highly trained and skilled at placing and restoring dental implants. Since we handle both steps in the implant process, we can oversee treatment to ensure a continuity of the highest quality care available.
A dental implant needs to be surrounded by bone. If we find that you don’t have sufficient bone to support the implant, we may recommend bone graft surgery. This process replaces lost bone in the area the implant is to be placed.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
In many cases, we perform oral surgery to extract a tooth. Aside from cases of advanced decay or infection, there are a number of cases where we may recommend extraction:
Dental trauma — We may recommend extraction if a tooth is broken or fractured close to or below the gum line.
Root canal infection — Infection has extended into the root canal and cannot be removed with traditional root canal treatment.
Alignment issues — A poorly aligned tooth can impact the alignment of surrounding teeth and may need to be extracted.
Preparation for dentures — A patient who is receiving partial or complete dentures may need to have several or all teeth removed.
