In some cases, oral surgery is necessary to preserve your dental health and improve your overall quality of life. Even patients who practice impeccable oral hygiene may still require surgical procedures every now and then. At National Dental Melville, our team is committed to providing you with high-quality care in a comfortable, stress-free atmosphere. If you have been told you need surgical intervention, consider scheduling a visit with an oral surgeon in Deer Park.
Innovative Laser Technology for Accurate Care
Dentistry is always changing. We believe it is important to evolve with it. At our practice, we utilize laser technology whenever possible. Used in the medical field for decades, lasers offer several advantages in dentistry, as well. For example, our soft diode laser can be used in place of a scalpel. Not only is this more accurate, but it also results in less discomfort for the patient. Additionally, we can use laser technology to remove decay and recontour hard tissues. Every oral surgery procedure offered at National Dental is performed as conservatively as possible using minimally invasive techniques. >>Learn more about laser dentistry
Abate Dental Fears with IV Sedation
In addition to advanced laser technology, we also offer options in sedation dentistry. Dental anxiety is a very real occurrence. Millions of Americans suffer from it. If you panic before a dental appointment or feel physically sick in the waiting room, you are not alone. So that patients can receive the care they require in the comfortable setting they deserve, we offer IV sedation. Before your procedure begins, your doctor will administer sedative medications intravenously. Almost immediately, you will enter a deep state of relaxation known as twilight sleep. IV sedation allows you to remain calm and relaxed throughout your entire appointment – and when your treatment is complete, you probably won’t recall much. Since this type of sedation has a short-term amnesia effect, you will need to bring a friend or family member with you to our office. >> Learn more about IV Sedation
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Although we offer a number of oral surgery procedures, one of the most routine treatments we perform is wisdom teeth extraction. The wisdom teeth are the last molars to grow in. Some patients have all four, while others may only have one or two. In fact, some individuals are born without any wisdom teeth at all! While our primitive ancestors made good use of this extra set of molars, we have little need for them today. Unfortunately, whenever wisdom teeth erupt, they usually grow in at an angle or become impacted in the jawbone. For this reason, we usually recommend extracting them to preserve your overall oral health. If they are not removed, they often lead to problems such as infection, gum disease, decay, and jaw pain. At National Dental, our skilled and experienced oral surgeons can complete the procedure in about one hour under IV sedation. >> Learn more about wisdom teeth
