Become a Candidate for Dental Implants With Surgery

Not every patient needs oral surgery to get dental implants. Because Dr. Hansen is an implant expert, you can trust that he’ll only recommend what’s necessary for you. For example, if you are replacing an entire arch of teeth, you may be eligible for implant dentures. Since it uses fewer implants, you won’t need as much bone mass in your jaw. As a result, you may not need a bone grafting procedure.

Dr. Hansen will do a thorough exam and discuss your goals. Then, he’ll take digital X-rays and 3-D scans of your mouth to plan your procedure. If you’re nervous, you can opt for sedation through laughing gas or a small pill you take before your appointment. Both will help your anxiety.

Based on your unique dental needs, your treatment may include:

  • Tooth Extractions – He’ll extract damaged or diseased teeth if they put your oral health at risk. He can also extract remaining teeth to make room for implant dentures.
  • Bone Grafts – This procedure adds bone mass in your jaw, so it can support dental implants.
  • Ridge Augmentation – This treatment is a bit more extensive than a graft. Dr. Hansen will recreate the contour of your jaw and restore bone lost in your mouth.
  • Sinus Lift – If you are getting implants in your upper jaw, he may need to raise the sinus area to make room for them.

By visiting an implant expert, you won’t have to see an outside oral surgeon for these procedures! See if you need oral surgery in Moscow by calling 208-203-7663 for an implant consultation.
