When We Refer
There are times when it is in the patient’s best interest to be seen by an oral surgeon. These times include patients with certain medical histories, anatomical anomalies of the area being treated or severe infection. Procedures that can be more comfortably performed for the patient where the use of IV sedation is beneficial such as long procedures or multiple areas being treated at the same time such as the case with third molars (wisdom teeth). We will always take into consideration what is best for the patient when considering referral.
We work as a team with either oral surgeons or periodontists to treatment plan the placement and restoration of the implant. The periodontist or oral surgeon performs the surgical placement and monitoring of the healing phase. Once the implant has integrated with the surrounding bone, we will restore the implant with the final restoration such as a crown, part of a bridge or support for a denture or hybrid full arch prosthesis.
Full Mouth Restoration On Implants
This has received a lot of awareness through television and print media. This process is often a consideration for severely debilitated mouths, replacement for loose, poor fitting dentures or advanced periodontal (gum) disease. These cases require careful planning between the patient, Dr. Hasken, oral surgeon or periodontist and dental lab technician. 3-D scans, x-rays, photos, models of the patient’s teeth are all used in the treatment planning process. We meet as a team face to face to plan for the best possible outcome for the patient. We all have a key role in the outcome of this great restorative option.
