Surgical Dental Care in Reno, NV
Dental treatment with surgical intervention resolves severe cases of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral structural problems. Many dental practices would refer a patient out to a dedicated specialist, but our practice is different. TMJ Therapy & Sleep Center of Nevada offers oral surgeries to Reno, Sparks, and all Washoe County locations.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are the most effective replacements for lost teeth, but their success relies on the integration of the implant post into the jawbone. Dr. J. Brian Allman, our dentist in Reno, performs the entire treatment process, including dental implant placement, by using the right technologies and techniques. Dr. Allman helps you achieve an effective support system for your new teeth.
Bone and Gum Grafting
When we lose teeth or experience periodontal disease, our gum and bone tissue often decrease in volume. The loss of hard and soft tissue can affect your everyday health and your candidacy for dental implants.
TMJ Therapy & Sleep Center of Nevada offers bone grafting and gum grafting procedures. We can add soft tissue to rebuild your smile after periodontitis and improve your wellbeing. We restore the volume of your hard tissue to make you eligible for implants; we can also use bone grafts to preserve the empty socket to make upcoming implant placement more successful.
TMJ Therapy & Sleep Center of Nevada can perform tissue removals for diagnostic or reconstructive purposes: tissue biopsies, tori removal, wisdom teeth extractions, frenectomies, and apicoectomies.
A tissue biopsy is the removal of a small amount of oral tissue to examine it for the presence of cancer or other diseases.
The torus is the bony protrusion in the roof of the mouth, and the lingual frenulum is a connective tissue that holds the tongue in place. Some people are born with an enlarged torus or frenulum that can cause problems with eating and speaking. Frenectomies and tori removals are procedures that reduce the frenulum and the torus, respectively, to a healthier size.
Removing a wisdom tooth will prevent the misalignment and erosion of the teeth potentially caused by the eruption of that third molar.
If a tooth underwent nonsurgical root canal therapy, but infection or inflammation persists near its roots, an apicoectomy can help. This procedure removes the infected tissue and tip of the root, which is then sealed with a filling material to keep the tooth healthy.
