A missing tooth can affect your bite, speech, and eating choices. Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Michael Doherty replaces missing teeth with dental implants. All dental implant patients will have a cone beam CT scan taken to evaluate the bone volume. Using advanced software, the exact implant size for your jaw will be placed virtually into the scan to ensure it is the proper implant.
For the majority of patients, Dr. Doherty can perform the extraction of the tooth and simultaneously place the dental implant. If bone grafting is necessary, Dr. Doherty will perform a bone graft. As Rogue Valley OMS has a single price for all aspects of your implant care, no additional fees except for the extraction are charged.
Moreover, Dr. Doherty guarantees implants for a period of five years, although several studies demonstrate implants last for decades. Failure after five years is generally not related to the surgical procedure. If the implant is not successful during this five year period, it will be replaced or money is refunded. This is very important for patients in choosing surgical providers. Our experience and surgical protocol has a very low failure rate, and we are comfortable in standing by this guarantee.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you do not have enough room in your mouth for your third molars (wisdom teeth) to fully erupt, a number of problems can happen. Impacted wisdom teeth should be removed before their root structure is fully developed.
With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, Dr. Doherty can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by their dentist, orthodontist, or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
