Dental Implants are root replacements, not whole teeth. They serve as anchors onto which your dentist can fabricate and attach new teeth. Dental Implant surgery is performed daily at Oral Surgeons Associates. These procedures are normally minor in nature requiring a short appointment with a local anesthetic. Sedation techniques are available on request but are often not necessary. Most of the implants placed at Oral Surgeons Associates involve only a one stage surgical process.
Sockets Grafts - Norwalk, CT
A simple, convenient and inexpensive means to prevent post extraction bone loss is the Socket Preservation Graft. These grafts are placed into the tooth socket at the time of extraction. Purified bovine bone or synthetic bone substitutes are placed into the socket to preserve the shape of the alveolar bone and prevent post extraction collapse. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is performed under the same local anesthetic as the extraction.
