Meet Dr. David Minto
Dr. Minto has roots in the Mobile Bay area; as a boy, he spent plenty of time visiting his grandmother’s home. Today, he is happy for the chance to live in Fairhope with his wife and daughter and to be a leading oral surgery provider to patients across Baldwin County. Dr. Minto is passionate about providing each patient with friendly, attentive care, whether they come in for wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, or something else. When he is not treating patients, Dr. Minto can often be found saltwater fishing or simply spending time with his family.
At Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our aim is always to provide patients with personalized care, lots of one-on-one attention, and a comfortable experience from start to finish. Here are some of the primary oral surgery solutions we offer to patients in Fairhope, AL.
Many of our patients have either lost teeth or anticipate the need to have teeth extracted. When natural teeth are lost, it is imperative to replace them; not only does this maintain the aesthetics of your smile, but it also prevents further loss of bone tissue. Dental implants represent the most secure and comfortable way to replace lost teeth, as well as the most permanent. We are pleased to be a leading provider of dental implants in the Fairhope, AL area.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Most of us get wisdom teeth sometime in our late teens or early 20s. Wisdom teeth can result in a number of problems, ranging from pain to infection; and, even asymptomatic wisdom teeth may result in greater dental problems down the road. As such, the best approach is often to have the wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Minto can perform a wisdom tooth extraction quickly and comfortably, using sedation options to ensure a pain-free experience. For wisdom tooth extraction in Fairhope, AL, keep Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in mind.
In addition to the wisdom teeth, you may have other teeth that need to be removed. There are countless reasons why teeth may need to come out: because they are broken, because they are decayed, or because they are impacted. No matter the reason, our practice can assist with teeth extraction, keeping you comfortable throughout the process. We are also glad to discuss dental implants and other options for replacing the lost teeth.
Over time, some patients lose bone mass in their jaw or surrounding their teeth. This is especially common among patients who have lost teeth or had teeth extracted. Without the necessary bone mass, patients may experience a sunken facial appearance or be ineligible for dental implants. Thankfully, all of this can be reversed via bone grafting. To learn more about the different options for bone grafting, reach out to Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at any time.
Our practice is committed to promoting patient comfort and safety at all times, which often requires the use of sedation. For your peace of mind, Dr. Minto offers a range of sedation options, including both localized and IV methods. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about sedation dentistry in Fairhope, AL.
Properly securing dental implants can be impossible if you have experienced bone loss in your upper jaw. At Minto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Fairhope, AL, we perform sinus lift procedures to raise the sinus membrane and add bone between the molars and premolars to create a strong anchor for longer-lasting dental implants.
