What is Oral Plastic Surgery?
Oral plastic surgery is where restorative and cosmetic dentistry come together to provide the very best results when it comes to both oral health and smile beauty. This may consist of procedures to replace missing teeth, reshape the gum line, or regenerate what has been lost due to periodontal disease. In the end, its goal is to help you achieve the healthy, attractive smile you need to live your life to the fullest.
How is periodontics different from general dentistry?
Periodontics is actually a specialty field of dentistry that specifically deals with learning about, diagnosing, and treating issues concerning the gums and other structures that surround and support the teeth. In addition to completing dental school, periodontists like Dr. Robertson have to undergo additional advanced training in order to gain this distinction. They typically specialize in treating periodontal disease, oral plastic surgery, and placing dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the highest-quality tooth replacement solution available today. They are the only treatment that restores the entire tooth structure from the root up, providing the most reliable, durable, and aesthetically-pleasing results possible. When placed by a specially-trained dentist like Dr. Robertson, dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth and are virtually indistinguishable from natural ones.
How does Teeth-in-a-Day work?
This is a procedure that allows our team to place dental implants and restore them with a full denture in just one appointment. Dr. Robertson will place four to six specially designed implants into the jaw to support the prosthetic, and then the denture will simply snap onto them. It’s one of the quickest ways to completely restore an entire row of teeth using the most state-of-the-art technology.
