Computer-Guided Oral Surgery
To place dental implants efficiently and accurately, our dental team uses our cone beam CT scan to get crisp 3D images of your mouth to plan and perform each procedure.
This technology also helps us create your restoration before your implant oral surgery so that you can receive your implants and restoration at the same time.
Gum grafting is commonly used to repair your gums after gum disease treatment. The bacteria and plaque from gum disease can cause your gums to recede, exposing too much of your teeth or tooth roots.
If you do not have the jawbone density required for dental implants, bone grafting may help. Depending on how much bone you already have, we can perform bone grafting before your implant oral surgery or even at the same time.
To prevent bone loss following a tooth extraction, our team may perform a socket preservation procedure. He will place a special growth-enhancing substance into your missing tooth’s socket to maintain the structure of your jawbone. It can also prepare the area for dental implants.
Dr. Kevin McMahon has achieved Diplomate status in the International Dental Implant Association, received his IV sedation certification with advanced airway and emergency management, achieved Invisalign Preferred Provider status, and has been LANAP certified to treat gum disease.
