Oral Surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC

Dental Implants in Mount Pleasant, SC

Dental implants provide the same health benefits and function as natural teeth, making them the ideal tooth replacement solution. A dental implant is embedded into the jaw bone, which creates a sturdy foundation and provides stimulation to keep the jaw bone strong. Other tooth restoration treatments rely on existing teeth for support, such as dental bridges or dentures. Dental implants, however, are the only option that fully restores functionality and prevents jaw bone loss.

You can receive as many dental implants as you need to achieve a complete and healthy smile, as long as your jaw bone is strong enough to support them. Dr. Barefoot is an expert in implant dentistry and can place a single implant, an implant-supported bridge, or a new arch of teeth through full-arch restoration. Our office uses the high-performing Straumann® BLX Implant System which reduces the need for a separate bone grafting procedure, resulting in higher success rates and faster treatment times.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Mount Pleasant, SC

Dr. Barefoot and the team at Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists South Carolina make the wisdom teeth removal process comfortable and easy. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and often make an appearance during the late teens or early twenties. Because there is not enough room in the average mouth for an extra set of molars, dentists and oral surgeons recommend having them extracted. This procedure is often performed using IV sedation, which allows you to rest in a semi-conscious state during surgery.

Wisdom teeth have large roots that can pierce facial nerves or the roots of other teeth. To make room, these molars may push against other molars, knocking them out of alignment and causing damage. Some wisdom teeth remain stuck beneath the gums, or impacted. A partially or fully impacted wisdom tooth will not erupt naturally and requires surgical extraction to remove it. By having your or your child's wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible, you prevent these oral health issues and more. Learn more about wisdom teeth removal in Mount Pleasant, SC.
