Dental Implants & Restorative Surgical Treatments

“Statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth…” (

Most adult tooth loss is caused by periodontal (gum) disease, which undermines teeth by destroying the bone that holds them in place. Missing teeth can make chewing properly very difficult, and can lead to other oral health problems over time.

We would recommend that you seek the advice of a dentist to discuss the long-term effects of missing teeth, (other than wisdom teeth) including shifting of other teeth and risk of bite collapse.

The standard of care in dentistry is to replace missing functional teeth with an implant, bridge or denture to prevent further damage and potential loss of other teeth. Whenever possible, dental implants are recommended for tooth replacement, or to secure a bridge or denture. Read more about Dental Implants

In some cases, bone and tissue grafts may be recommended to provide stability for dental implants or to optimize the fit of dentures. These treatments are also sometimes necessary to repair damage caused by periodontal disease.

Crown lengthening is a fairly common surgical procedure in which the gum tissue or bone height is modified to expose enough tooth structure to support a crown.

Surgical Tooth Removal

Routine Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Extraction

In the event a tooth cannot be restored to full function, our doctors may recommend removal and replacement with a dental implant, bridge or denture. Our team of dentists and dental specialists will collaborate on the best course of care with your goals in mind.

Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are often troublesome and are not functional for most patients. We usually recommend removal of these teeth. Read more about Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Sedation Dentistry

Staff dentists on our Dental Care Center of Macon surgical team hold licensure in the State of Georgia to provide IV Dental Sedation Services.

Dental sedation is commonly used in oral surgery and dental implant procedures. It can also benefit patients that experience a high level of anxiety with restorative treatments. Read more about Sedation Dentistry
