Missing one or more teeth? Dr. Allred specializes in permanent tooth restoration using dental implants!
Dental implants offer long-lasting and natural-looking results by using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous crowns can then be attached. They also require no dietary restrictions and are built to last for life.
We offer the following dental implant systems at our San Marcos dentist office:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Smile-on-6 Dental Implants (exclusive service developed by Dr. Allred)
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Periodontal disease can wreak havoc on the jaw bone, making it impossible to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. If you are suffering from this condition, Dr. Allred may recommend bone grafting (also known as 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.
Sinus lift surgery, also known as maxillary sinus elevation, is performed for patients who do not have enough bone height to support a dental implant or if the sinuses are too big or too close for an implant. This surgery allows for greater implant stability using a bone graft that is taken from the patient's body, from an allogeneic (human cadaver), or from a xenograft (cow) bone graft. Dr. Allred performs sinus lift surgery to provide more secure dental implants.
After tooth extraction, ridge augmentation is performed and 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 after an extraction. Ridge augmentation can prevent jawbone deterioration where a tooth socket once was following a tooth extraction, making it possible for patients to use dentures or receive dental implants in the future.
Ridge augmentation procedures have been proven to benefit the overall health of a patient's smile, and to improve their appearance and boost their confidence. In addition, the ridge augmentation procedure:
- Recreates a natural bone and gum ridge
- Improves aesthetic appearance
- Increases stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduces gaps between the gums and dental restorations
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure after trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem, such as with wisdom teeth removal.
Dr. Allred provides 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, Dr. Allred will administer a dental exam and take digital x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Most patients get their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s, but Dr. Allred will use his advanced diagnostic tools to determine when it's healthiest for you or your child to undergo this procedure. Although not every patient needs their wisdom teeth pulled, it can cause pain, orthodontic problems, and even severe infections in those that do.
At Allred Dental, we perform all different types of wisdom tooth removal surgeries, including those on impacted wisdom teeth!
