Dental Implants +
Dental implants are the only long-term solution for patients who have one or more missing teeth. This permanent tooth replacement option consists of a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw bone for healthy stimulation, an abutment that attaches to the post, and a highly aesthetic crown. Altogether, dental implants look, feel, and act like natural teeth. We place dental implants using Cone Beam CT and guided implant surgery for highly predictable and aesthetic results.
Sedation Dentistry +
Many patients forego dental treatment due to fear of anything from a bad gag reflex to specific sounds and smells associated with a typical appointment. Both of our doctors are certified to administer I.V. sedation, in addition to offering oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and local anesthesia. No matter your level of anxiety, our sedation dentistry options will help you relax and feel calm during any procedure you may need.
Full Mouth Reconstruction +
Are there several areas of your mouth that need treatment, including a gummy smile, missing or decayed teeth, gum disease, or ongoing jaw pain or headaches? If these problems have diminished your quality of life and left you in poor oral health or embarrassed to smile, you may be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. Like the name suggests, a full mouth reconstruction takes the functional aspects of your teeth, jaw, and gums into consideration to comprehensively treat multiple dental issues and restore your healthy smile. As experienced oral surgeons, Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah are specialized in treating issues related to the hard and soft tissues of the face and perform procedure involved in full mouth reconstruction on a regular basis.
Impacted Teeth +
Teeth that are trapped in the jaw bone, blocked by other teeth, or stuck in dense gum tissue and cannot erupt properly are referred to as “impacted teeth.” These teeth can either be partially or fully impacted, and can lead to oral health complications if the surrounding gums become infected or if surrounding teeth become affected. Each tooth plays a critical role in the function of the entire mouth, so treatment of impacted teeth is necessary to ensure proper oral health. Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah can effectively diagnose and treat these problem areas before they become major oral health concerns.
Jaw Surgery +
When a jaw bone develops abnormally, more issues will result than merely the face appearing unbalanced, especially in the facial profile. A jaw that is not correctly positioned can cause serious oral health problems than can affect your entire body, including difficulty swallowing or chronic TMJ pain and migraines. Used in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, corrective (orthognathic) jaw surgery can adjust these abnormalities by shifting the jaw bone into a more favorable position. Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah work closely with your general dentist and orthodontist to create a customized treatment plan designed to improve both the aesthetic appearance of your face and restore the jaw bone to normal function.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction +
Wisdom teeth generally become an oral health issues in patients between the ages of 17 and 25. While symptoms may not be noticeable at first, partially or fully impacted wisdom teeth can cause crowding, pain, inflammation, and even tumors and cysts. We use the Cone Bean CT scan to create the most unique and effective treatment plan, especially if the position and location of your wisdom teeth require a more complex surgery.
