Anesthesia/Sedation
We understand that having a dental procedure can be a little intimidating.  Dr. Adamiak will meet with you prior to your surgery to address all of your concerns. He will address any health conditions at that time and work with you to customize a treatment plan that works best for you.  We offer several anesthesia options ranging from local anesthesia (lidocaine), nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and IV sedation.

Bone Grafting
Bone grafting techniques are designed to rebuild bone structure. Bone grafting can increase the height or width of the jawbone and can be used to fill in voids or defects in bone. Deformities in the jawbone can be corrected, and restructuring of the bone can provide added support.  Bone grafting can also be used to limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction or periodontal disease.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural design of teeth in form, function and esthetics.  The dental implants typically consist of three parts: the body of the implant (post or screw), the abutment (the post your crown will sit on) and the crown. Implants can be placed at the time of extraction (immediate) or after an extraction (delayed).  Dr. Adamiak will explain the process, timeline and answer any questions or concerns you may have during your consultation appointment. 

Extractions
Teeth may need to be extracted for several reasons. Some are too decayed for restoration, a tooth might be broken or fractured, others can be impacted or may cause periodontal (gum) disease.    

Facial Pain/TMJ
TMJ disorders are problems associated with the jaw joint. If your symptoms consist of pain or a “clicking” sound, you will be relieved to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Typically symptoms occur when the joints of the jaw and the chewing muscles do not work together correctly. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important. 

Facial Trauma
Maxillofacial injuries also referred to as facial trauma, encompass any injury to the mouth, face and jaw. 

Oral/Facial Pathology
The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. Changes can be detected on the lips, cheeks, palate, gum tissue around the teeth, tongue, face, and/or neck. We recommend performing oral cancer self-examination monthly.

Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and the last ones to erupt in your mouth.  If wisdom teeth do not have enough space to erupt, they may become impacted or partially impacted.  A few common reasons to have wisdom teeth extracted are; decay, have soft tissue infections, damage to adjacent teeth, cysts and tumors of the jaw. Wisdom teeth can also shift or move your existing teeth.  Dr. Adamiak will evaluate your wisdom teeth and determine if they need to be removed or if you have adequate space to keep them. 

The removal of wisdom teeth can be performed under local anesthesia, nitrous oxide or IV Sedation. All of your options will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation. Upon discharge, your postoperative kit will include postoperative instructions, a prescription for pain medication, antibiotics, a jaw pack for ice packs, and gauze.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 615-385-1644.
