We use dental implants in our Jonesboro office to replace single or multiple missing teeth in conjunction with bridges or dentures. They can also help the shape and density of the jawbone by supporting the facial structure and soft tissues around the gums, cheeks, and lips. The functionality of implants helps you to eat, chew and have a natural-looking smile.
Dental implants at Northeast Arkansas Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery consist of three components: the implant, the crown, and the abutment, which fastens the crown to the implant. The implant is titanium and threaded on the outside like a screw to securely attach it to the bone.
We'll consider many factors when determining whether dental implants are good for your unique case. Overall health, oral health, and the quantity of jawbone available to anchor the implant are all factors that can increase or decrease the implant's chance of success.
If there is too little bone to support an implant securely, we may be able to perform a bone graft or sinus augmentation to increase the available bone.
Maxillofacial surgery in Jonesboro focuses on the mouth, jaw, face, and neck issues. Your dentist or orthodontist may refer you to a maxillofacial surgeon in cases too serious to be corrected by standard dental procedures.
You may require maxillofacial surgery for many reasons, including overbites, underbites, jaw asymmetry, and more. The surgeons at Northeast Arkansas Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offer surgical services, including:
- Orthognathic surgery
- Bone grafting or augmentation
- Impacted canine treatment
- Implant placement
- Pre-prosthetic surgery
- Corrective jaw surgery
Many people experience anxiety surrounding visiting the dentist. At Northeast Arkansas Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we provide IV sedation dentistry in a safe, respectful, and compassionate environment so you can feel more at ease.
IV sedation is administered directly into your arm or hand. With IV sedation, patients breathe independently while their breathing and heart rate are monitored and are still responsive to your doctor’s prompts.
Dr. McDonough, Dr. Phillips, and our team care about your experience and want you to feel comfortable. The benefits of IV sedation include:
- Feel calm and relaxed during your dental visit.
- Take care of complex procedures in a single visit.
- Catch up on years of putting off dental visits.
- A licensed nurse anesthetist administers the IV sedation.
- Depth of sleep is monitored and tailored to your needs. You’ll awaken alert and ready to go on with your day.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The four molars located at the very back corners of your mouth are wisdom teeth and typically erupt between ages 17 and 25.
The wisdom teeth often become impacted and can cause dental health complications. If this happens, Dr. McDonough or Dr. Phillips can extract them to avoid problems such as tooth decay, cavities, cysts, and infections.
