Better Planning & Outcomes
Treatment involving oral surgery procedures can absolve extreme dental disease, or correct an underlying issue that cannot be treated through traditional dental methods. Because these conditions can be invisible to the naked eye, a thorough examination and precise diagnosis are vital to effective surgical treatment. To provide our patients with accurate and effective diagnoses, the doctors use innovative iCAT 3D imaging technology. Unlike conventional spiral computer tomography (CT) scanners, iCAT employs a cone beam CT scan to capture and produce crystal-clear images of the mouth and jawbone. These advanced images allow us to provide more detailed diagnoses, and we can concentrate on a specific area of concern to reduce patients’ exposure to imaging radiation.
Quick, Efficient & Effective
Dr. Glenn and Dr. Hicks are known for efficiency, and we have provided thousands of wisdom teeth extractions, dental implant placements, and anesthetics since the practice was founded. As part of our dedication to providing excellent and efficient treatment, we can perform a variety of procedures, including tooth extraction and replacement, in just one visit. Working in conjunction with a patient’s general dentist, our doctors can surgically insert one or more dental implants into the jawbone, and attach the final restoration. Immediate-placement implants allow patients to enjoy their newly-restored smiles in less time than traditional implants, which require a four to six month healing period.
