A dentoalveolar procedure treats problems that occur in the teeth and their sockets. “Dento” refers to the teeth and “alveolar” describes the bone that surrounds them. When problems appear in these areas, our dentist can effectively treat the patient through a serious of procedures. Plan for your treatment, restoration and recovery with Apex Dental.
When you visit our office, you will first complete an examination with our dentist. Depending on the results of your examination, Dr. Bunmi Adekugbe may recommend one of several different treatments.
- Patients may also need dentoalveolar surgery if they suffer from advanced periodontitis, also known as gum disease.
- Tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth extraction, is another common dentoalveolar procedure. However, if the wisdom teeth or other teeth are impacted, our office may instead recommend a tooth exposure rather than removal.
- Soft tissue grafts can address gum recession, exposed dental roots or other soft tissue-related issues.
- If you need a set of dentures, alveoloplasty can help reshape the jawbone and ensure the appliance fits properly.
