Oral surgery is a topic that often makes some patients anxious. At K.C. Sykora DDS Family and Implant Dentistry, we can help you get the care you need in a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. We use local anesthetics to eliminate pain, as well as other comfort amenities to help you feel at ease. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions you may have.
We can perform this procedure for patients needing additional bone mass for dental implant placement. Dental implants require a certain amount of bone structure to be available. Because the implant fuses to the bone to create a permanent foundation for the restoration, it is important that the bone be healthy and strong. We can build up bone mass in the areas necessary to provide support for the implants. You can learn more about our dental implant services.
Need to have a tooth removed? We can help. Although we do try to save the tooth if possible, we can comfortably remove teeth that cannot be repaired. We use specialized tools to gently loosen and remove problem teeth when necessary. This procedure is quick, painless (due to our use of a local anesthetic), and can help you work toward the smile you want. For wisdom teeth removals, we may refer you out to a trusted specialist.
The term “root canal” often induces a sense of fear or anxiety in some patients. However, modern tools and techniques allow root canal treatment to be quite simple and painless. Believe us, its the truth! Before we begin, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area. We have an instrument called the DentalVibe to help reduce discomfort from the injection. We then use a modern rotary file system to access the dental pulp. We then remove the infected pulp and repair the tooth with the newest type of sealer called bioceramic sealer. The tooth is now no longer able to feel pain and is protected from future infection. This process is routine, very safe, and can help you feel better quickly.
