Dental Implants +
Are you missing one or more teeth? Though tooth loss is relatively common—affecting more than 178 million Americans—it can still cause self-consciousness and functional issues, including bone loss and other teeth shifting. Dental implants are the most natural and permanent tooth replacement, able to restore one, several, or a full arch of missing teeth. Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah place dental implants using guided surgery technology to preserve your gums and jaw bone and restore your teeth, function, and smile aesthetics.
Sedation Dentistry +
Dental fear and anxiety are common for many people, causing nearly 40 million people to struggle with maintaining proper dental appointments. However, avoiding the dentist can have many negative consequences for your oral health, including tooth decay and gum disease. Drs. Lugakingira and Awah are aware that oral surgical procedures can be complex and scary, causing higher levels of anxiety. Our team is trained to administer I.V. sedation and offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide to relieve your dental anxiety and help you achieve a healthy smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction +
Do you have multiple oral health concerns affecting your confidence, comfort, and function? Multiple missing teeth, gum disease and tooth decay, or chronic jaw pain and headaches can significantly diminish your quality of life. Full mouth reconstruction rebuilds the functional and cosmetic aspects of your smile with customized restorative treatments. Drs. Lugakingira and Awah are experienced in the scope of oral surgical procedures and full mouth reconstruction treatment to restore your smile.
Impacted Teeth +
Impacted teeth are any teeth that do not erupt in the mouth properly and become trapped in the bone, blocked by existing teeth, or retained in the thick gum tissue. Whether either partially or fully impacted, these teeth can become an oral health concern because they increase the risk for pain, infection, or disease. As oral surgeons, Drs. Lugakingira and Awah have the highest level of clinical training in the extraction of impacted teeth and complete these procedures on a daily basis, helping restore your oral health and preserving your mouth from infection or other oral health concerns.
Jaw Surgery +
An out-of-line or dislocated jaw bone can cause chronic pain and serious oral health issues affecting the head, neck, and back. Many patients can be debilitated by the persistent pain, headaches, discomfort, and other symptoms of a misaligned jaw bone. Commonly, treatment for jaw issues is a combination of orthodontics and jaw surgery to adjust both the occlusion of the teeth and the position of the jaw so all movements function harmoniously. Drs. Lugakingira and Awah are specialized in corrective jaw surgery and collaborate with your general dentist and orthodontist to provide personalized treatment that restores your jaw and mouth to full function.
