Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Loetscher is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.
All outpatient surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. One of the advantages of coming to Dr. Loetscher, he has additional training in anesthesia, and can also offers full general anesthesia as done in a hospital setting, rather than just offering deep sedation. This provides a safe airway, and complete patient comfort. If you do not have enough room in your mouth for your third molars to fully erupt, a number of problems can happen. Impacted wisdom teeth should be removed before their root structure is fully developed.
