Our Services in Daphne, AL
It is our pleasure to help patients in Daphne, AL maintain healthy, confident smiles, repairing dental problems through our surgical skills. Consider just a few of our primary areas of treatment.
We meet with a number of patients who, for one reason or another, have either lost some teeth or anticipate having some of their teeth extracted. Following the loss of any tooth, it is imperative to replace it, which can help safeguard against further deterioration of the jaw bone and surrounding tissue. For most patients, dental implants are the best option for full restoration, offering a solution that is more comfortable, convenient, and permanent than traditional dentures. Make sure to ask us about TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ as well as conventional implants, both available to patients in Daphne, AL.
The wisdom teeth, or back molars, usually grow in during the late teen years or sometimes in the early 20s. Wisdom teeth really do not serve a purpose and can actually cause serious complications, including infection, pain, and crowding of surrounding teeth. Your regular dentist may recommend having your wisdom teeth removed, something Dr. Minto is happy to assist with. Contact us to get more information about our approach to wisdom teeth removal or to schedule a consultation.
At Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we can help patients with any tooth extraction needs, including exposure of impacted teeth. Whether your tooth has been broken or is badly decayed, an extraction may give you the relief you need. Dr. Minto can perform either a simple extraction or a surgical extraction as needed, using personalized sedation options to ensure a comfortable procedure. Also, be sure to ask us about options for tooth replacement, including dental implants.
Bone grafting is a procedure that enables the patient to regrow bone tissue, particularly on the jaw or near the teeth. Bone grafting can help patients who have a sunken facial appearance and may also be necessary before dental implants can be placed. Dr. Minto can perform different kinds of bone graft procedures for patients in Daphne, AL and in surrounding Baldwin County.
At Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, patient comfort is one of our top priorities. To make certain your experience with us is positive and pain-free, we are happy to utilize multiple options for sedation during your procedure. These options include both localized and IV sedation. Dr. Minto can chat with you about each option and make a recommendation based on the nature of the procedure.
Bone loss in the upper jaw can make anchoring dental implants difficult. However, a sinus lift helps by raising the sinus membrane and adding the necessary bone. At Minto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery near Daphne, AL, our experienced team performs complex procedures like sinus lifts with your comfort and safety in mind.
