Do you need oral surgery, but feel nervous about going through the process? Dr. McQueen performs oral surgery procedures in a comfortable, state-of-the-art atmosphere at our Fayetteville dental office.
Dr. McQueen can perform everything from simple tooth extractions to bone grafting and sinus lifts to help keep your smile healthy. With our comprehensive oral surgery services, you can smile with confidence again!
Dr. McQueen always prefers to save your natural teeth, using tooth extraction as a last resort. A tooth extraction might be necessary to preserve your dental health if decay or infection has made your natural tooth too damaged to save. At McQueen Dental we make sure your tooth extraction is as painless as possible!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during your late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, Dr. McQueen will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
Periodontal disease can cause your jaw bone to become too weak to support a dental implant. In cases like this, Dr. McQueen will often recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote healthy bone growth and thicken your jaw bone. Over time, your jaw bone will naturally regenerate and become strong enough to support a dental implant.
If you're getting dental implants placed in your upper jaw, you may need a sinus lift surgical procedure first. During this procedure, Dr. McQueen will add new bone between your jaw and maxillary sinuses.
In order to make room for this new bone, your sinus membrane needs to be gently moved upward. A successful sinus lift will help create healthy bone mass to support dental implants.
A ridge augmentation is an oral surgical procedure Dr. McQueen may recommend following a tooth extraction or if you've suffered tooth loss.
Ridge augmentation can help rebuild the natural line of your gums and jaw that can deteriorate after tooth loss. It can also be a necessary step to make sure your jaw bone can support a dental implant after tooth loss.
