Missing one or more teeth? Dr. Reyes-Viruet specializes in permanent tooth restoration using dental implants! Using state-of-the-art technologies, she can perform comfortable, non-invasive guided implant surgery to provide durable, long-lasting smile restoration.
Dental implants offer long-lasting and natural-looking results by using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous crowns can then be attached. They also require no dietary restrictions and are built to last for life.
We offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
- Mini Dental Implants
Periodontal disease can wreak havoc on the jaw bone, making it impossible to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. If you are suffering from gum disease, Dr. Reyes-Viruet may recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote bone growth in the jaw. This specialized treatment allows the jaw bone to begin to regenerate and strengthen itself enough to safely support a dental implant.
Also known as maxillary sinus elevation, sinus lift surgery is performed for patients who do not have enough bone height to support a dental implant or whose sinuses may be too large or too close to support an implant.
This surgery allows for greater implant stability and security using a bone graft procedure.
After tooth extraction, ridge augmentation is performed. The procedure involves placing a bone graft directly into the empty socket where the tooth's roots once were. This is done to help recreate the natural shape of the gums and jaw after an extraction.
Ridge augmentation can prevent jawbone deterioration where a tooth socket once was following a tooth extraction, making it possible for patients to use dentures or receive restorative dental implants in the future.
Ridge augmentation procedures are proven to benefit the overall health and appearance of a patient's smile. The ridge augmentation procedure is also known to have the following benefits:
- Recreates a natural bone and gum ridge
- Improves aesthetic appearance
- Increases stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduces gaps between the gums and dental restorations
At Viruet Periodontics, we will do everything we can to help you preserve your healthy and natural teeth as long as possible.
However, if you do need to have a tooth removed, Dr. Reyes-Viruet is experienced in performing gentle tooth extractions.
Before any extraction, she will:
- Administer a thorough exam
- Provide a set of digital x-rays
- Take time to explain the tooth extraction procedure
You'll always know what to expect and our team will always keep you comfortable throughout your treatment!
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Is it time for you or your teen to have the wisdom teeth pulled? While most patients will have their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s, Dr. Reyes-Viruet has the advanced imaging tools necessary to determine when it's healthiest for you or your child to undergo this procedure.
For many patients, leaving the wisdom teeth untreated can cause pain, orthodontic issues, and even serious infections.
At Viruet Periodontics, we perform all different types of wisdom tooth removal surgeries, including those on partial bony impacted wisdom teeth!
Inside your mouth, there is a piece of tissue that connects the gum to the lip and is called the labial frenum. If it is abnormally wide or long, it may connect through to the gum tissue between the teeth and extend to the front portion of the roof of the mouth.
When the upper frenum is too wide or long, it can create a space between the two front teeth, and that may require a surgical procedure.
Here at Viruet Periodontics, we use a laser made specifically to gently cut the soft tissue and reduce the size of the frenum. This simple, quick procedure restores the normal function of the lips and tongue.
