This small titanium post is surgically embedded in the jawbone. Designed to replace missing tooth roots, dental implants can stimulate bone regrowth and prevent further bone degeneration. As a result, it is often recognized as the best method of replacing a missing tooth. Whether you are missing one tooth or a full dental arch, Dr. Siegel can design a treatment plan tailored to your needs. We can then restore your tooth with a custom implant-supported dental crown, bridge, or denture.
Sometimes jawbone recession can occur, especially if you have been missing teeth for an extended period of time. A bone graft or sinus lift can help to restore the structure of your jawbone and improve your candidacy for dental implants. During this procedure, Dr. Siegel can transplant either your bone or biocompatible material into the socket, before securing it in place.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Gum recession exposes the roots of your teeth, causing dental sensitivity. To address recession, Dr. Siegel can perform a soft tissue graft. He can transplant either your own tissue or a substitute material to compromised areas, improving the overall shape and function of the gums. Dr. Siegel can assess your individual needs and determine which method is right for you.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
At our practice, we typically recommend removing wisdom teeth when patients are in their early teens or 20s, before they become problematic. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, they may damage adjacent teeth and cause dental misalignment. Dr. Siegel is highly experienced in wisdom tooth removal, and provides his patients with compassionate care throughout the process.
A tooth may need to be removed for any number of reasons, including decay, infection, bone loss, fractures, periodontal disease, or resorption. Dr. Siegel uses the most modern tooth removal techniques to ensure minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissue. He can perform both simple and complex tooth extractions in-office for your convenience. Dr. Siegel may also review socket preservation with you, to help avoid deterioration of jawbone density.
If you have lesions or irritation in your mouth, it is important to determine whether they are benign or malignant. Dr. Siegel can perform an oral cancer screening using advanced VELscope® technology to detect abnormalities. We can then submit material to our trusted laboratory to perform a biopsy. If necessary, Dr. Siegel can remove any areas of concern.
