Before you search for an oral surgeon in Aurora, IL, consider meeting with our team of dentists from Village Green Dental Center. We offer many of the same services you'll find when visiting an oral surgeon, saving you time and ensuring your dental care is provided by someone you already know and have come to trust.
Here are some of the main dental issues you may someday require an oral surgeon’s help with:
Wisdom teeth are often the culprits when an impacted tooth is an issue, but any tooth can make you suffer. A tooth becomes impacted when there isn’t enough space in your gums to hold the tooth – as it tries to break through the gums, it can cause sore gums and infections. In the case of wisdom teeth, most often the best course of treatment is an extraction.
Used to replace missing teeth, most experienced general dentists are now making this treatment available for their patients. During the first stage of treatment – the oral surgery – a small titanium or ceramic artificial tooth root is placed into your jawbone. To ensure predictable results every time, we use CEREC technology to accurate plan and create guides to ensure your dental implant is placed precisely for best results. When your jawbone has fully grown around the replacement root, the implant is restored with a natural-looking porcelain crown that is permanently placed on the post. CEREC same-day crown technology allows us to take an impression and custom-mill a crown so we could perform a same-day dental implant restoration – why wait for that brand-new smile if you don’t need to?
Sinus Lift Surgery
If you’ve been missing a tooth for a long time, your upper jawbone may not have enough bone for the successful placement of a dental implant. In this case an oral surgeon or experienced general dentist can place a bone graft – making you a candidate for dental implant treatment. Because we offer varying levels of sedation, you can feel confident visiting Village Green Dental Center for your care – from start to finish.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
While the gold standard of care sleep apnea is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine, a small oral appliance can help those with mild to moderate apnea find relief. For those with severe apnea that is not responding to CPAP treatment, oral surgery may be the next step. This treatment will only be done through working with a specialized sleep physician who is trained to diagnose sleep apnea and an oral surgeon who is experienced enough to do the surgery.
