Dental Implants +
Do you have one or more missing teeth? Though more than 178 million Americans are missing at least one of their teeth, the loss of a tooth is still embarrassing and can make it especially difficult for your mouth to function properly. A missing tooth leaves a gap that can cause surrounding teeth to shift to accommodate the space. If not replaced, your jaw bone will begin to deteriorate from lack of stimulation from the tooth’s root. Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah place dental implants to ensure your teeth, gums, and jaw remain healthy and your aesthetic smile is restored.
Sedation Dentistry +
Fear or anxiety associated with dental visits is common among many people, affecting nearly 40 million Americans. Avoiding the dentist due to fear will negatively impact your oral health. Routine oral health care can prevent more serious conditions from arising, such as gum disease. Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah understand that more complex oral surgery procedures can cause more severe anxiety. Both of our doctors are trained in I.V. sedation, in addition to our other sedation options, to ensure your experiences at our office are calming and help you receive the oral health care you need for a healthy, beautiful smile.
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.
