Sedation Dentistry For Oral Surgeries
Our two dental offices in Saratoga Springs and Gloversville, NY offer a comprehensive selection of oral surgeries with an approach that prioritizes the comfort of each patient. To achieve this, we provide safe, advanced sedation dentistry services for patients who have dental anxiety, special healthcare needs, or who are preparing for a lengthy procedure.
During your surgical consultation, our doctors will review your health history to assess your needs and determine the safest, most effective sedation level for you!
Our doctors are experts in replacing lost or missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants that function, feel, and appear just like natural teeth! A dental implant consists of a titanium post or “root” permanently anchored to your jawbone. A solid dental crown is then placed just below the gumline to complete the dental implant procedure and the natural look of your newly restored smile.
At Harrison Family Dentists, we offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Overdentures (similar to All-on-4®)
- Hybrid Dental Implants
Our state-of-the-art restorations are always crafted using the highest quality materials. We create durable, comfortable restorative solutions to support healthy tissues and a natural-looking smile!
Patients suffering from periodontal disease may experience additional damage to the jaw bone, making it difficult to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. If you suffer from this condition, our dentists may recommend bone grafting, or natural bone regeneration, to promote bone growth in the jaw. With this specialized treatment, your jaw bone will begin to regenerate and strengthen itself enough to support a dental implant.
At Harrison Family Dentists, our doctors perform sinus lift surgery to provide more secure dental implants. Sinus lift surgery, also known as maxillary sinus elevation, is performed for patients looking to support a dental implant, but who do not have enough bone height or have sinuses too large or close together. This surgery uses a bone graft to allow greater implant stability.
After tooth extraction, ridge augmentation is performed. The procedure involves placing a bone graft directly into the empty socket where the tooth's roots once were. This is done to help recreate the natural shape of the gums and jaw following the extraction. Ridge augmentation can promote optimal oral health by preventing jawbone deterioration where a tooth socket once was, making it possible for patients to use removable dentures or receive permanent dental implants in the future.
Not only have ridge augmentation procedures been proven to benefit the health of a patient's smile, but they can also improve the appearance and confidence of their smile! Additional benefits of the ridge augmentation procedure include the following:
- Recreation of a natural bone and gum ridge
- Improved aesthetic appearance
- Increased stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduction of gaps between the gums and dental restorations
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure following dental injury or trauma, or for a preventive purpose such as with wisdom teeth removal.
Doctors Wayne and Devin Harrison perform tooth extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort or have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but simple extractions are also performed if the tooth appears above the gum line.
Before any extraction, our team will perform an ultra-thorough dental exam and take a set of high-tech digital x-rays to design the best plan for treatment.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Most patients get their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s, but our doctors have the advanced diagnostic tools to determine when it's safest and healthiest for you or your child to remove them. Although not every patient will need their wisdom teeth pulled, leaving them untreated can cause pain, discomfort, orthodontic problems, and in some cases, severe infections.
