Dental implants are custom-designed prostheses that are meant to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look and function like the rest of your natural teeth. The dental implant is a small, medical-grade titanium post that is placed into the jaw bone and supports the replacement crown. Dr. Simonton performs the dental implant surgery, any initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting (if necessary). Dental implants are an incredibly popular restorative option because they allow people to maintain the health of their teeth, increase dental stability, decrease bone loss, and enhance their natural smile. Dental implants will serve you well for many years if you take care of the dental implant and maintain regular oral health practices. After the surgical procedure is complete and your implant sites have healed, you will be able to easily care for your dental implants just like your natural teeth. If you would like to find out if you are a candidate for dental implant surgery, contact Oconee County Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to schedule a consultation today!
Your wisdom teeth are an additional set of molars located in the far back of your mouth. Most people develop a full set of 32 teeth; however, they only have enough space within their jaw to accommodate 28. In most cases, due to lack of space, these third molars do not erupt properly and present significant problems, including swelling, pain, dental crowding, and potential disease. At Oconee County Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed early, preferably during the mid- to late teens, even if the teeth haven’t begun to emerge from the gums yet. When you choose Dr. Fred Simonton for your wisdom tooth extraction procedure, you will receive high-quality care in a state-of-the-art surgical center. He has received extensive training to administer anesthesia and offers several anesthetic options to ease you into a comfortable and anxiety-free procedure. If you would like more information about wisdom teeth removal, we urge you to call Oconee County Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to schedule a consultation appointment.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a revolutionary solution for patients who have lost or are in the process of losing all of their upper or lower teeth. This all-inclusive procedure restores the look, strength, and function of the patient’s mouth with four permanent implants that are fixed to a replacement denture. Before the All-on-4® Treatment Concept, patients can expect to undergo initial consultations to allow Dr. Simonton to gather information for a comprehensive treatment plan. After the procedure and a brief healing period, your final permanent denture will be placed. At Oconee County Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our patients experience numerous benefits from choosing the All-on-4® Treatment Concept for dental restoration. If you would like to schedule a consultation appointment or have any questions about the All-on-4® Treatment Concept, please call our office at (706) 705-1571.
