Oral Surgery in Las Vegas
Dr. Kevin M. Martin is an experienced, compassionate oral surgeon providing the full spectrum of oral surgery care to patients in and around Las Vegas. Oral surgery encompasses a wide range of surgical procedures involving the mouth, jaw, and facial regions. Dr. Martin is extensively trained to diagnose and treat various conditions, ranging from dental implants and tooth extractions to complex surgeries like jaw reconstruction.
Dr. Martin collaborates closely with your restorative dentist or prosthodontist to create a treatment plan involving surgical placement of the dental implants in the jawbone. These titanium posts replace the roots of missing teeth. Dr. Martin is skilled in assessing a patient’s eligibility for dental implants, performing the surgical implantation procedure, and ensuring the successful integration of the implant with the surrounding bone. After the implants have healed, your dentist or prosthodontist will attach dental restorations to replace the visible portion of the missing teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Removing wisdom teeth in the teens or twenties is often the best way to prevent future complications from impacted or infected wisdom teeth. When these teeth are not removed in adolescence or early adulthood, it can lead to problems such as impaction, misalignment, and severe pain. Dr. Martin specializes in extracting these troublesome teeth, ensuring a safe and comfortable procedure for patients.
Bone grafting may be needed to build up the jawbone’s density, width, or height damaged by periodontal disease. It is also performed to build up and strengthen the jawbone when needed before dental implants are placed. Bone grafts may be harvested from the patient’s body or a donor source to augment the jawbone and provide a solid foundation for dental implants or other restorative procedures.
Although many dentists can perform a simple tooth extraction, many refer their patients to Delicate Oral Surgery, particularly if the extraction will be complex. Dr. Martin is well-equipped to handle routine and complex tooth extractions, including impacted teeth, damaged teeth, and those requiring surgical removal. Because he routinely performs surgical tooth extraction, discomfort is minimal, and surgery takes less time.
Pre-prosthetic surgery prepares the oral cavity and supporting structures for the placement of dental prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges. Las Vegas oral surgeon Dr. Martin plays a crucial role in ensuring these prosthetic devices’ proper fit and function.
Oral pathology focuses on diagnosing and treating diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, and facial structures. Oral surgeons work closely with other medical professionals to address oral cancers, cysts, and other pathological conditions, often performing biopsies and surgical interventions as part of the treatment process.
Exposure of Impacted Teeth
Impacted teeth, including canines and premolars, sometimes must be surgically exposed and guided into their correct positions. After the tooth is exposed, Dr. Martin carefully repositions these teeth, often working in conjunction with an orthodontist, exposes the teeth and assists in their proper alignment within the dental arch.
Advanced technologies like 3D imaging, such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), are used by Dr. Martin to improve the precision and success of oral surgery procedures. These imaging tools provide detailed three-dimensional views of the oral and maxillofacial structures, enabling precise treatment planning and improved surgical outcomes.
We believe ensuring patient comfort and safety during oral surgery is paramount. Dr. Martin and his surgical care team are skilled in administering various forms of anesthesia, from local anesthesia for simple procedures to general anesthesia for more complex surgeries, ensuring that patients are relaxed and pain-free throughout the surgical process.
EXPAREL is a long-acting local anesthetic that oral surgeons may use for extended pain relief after surgery. It reduces the need for traditional postoperative pain medications (particularly opioids), enhancing patient comfort during the critical early stages of recovery.
Dr. Martin’s oral surgery goals focus on restoring oral health, improving aesthetics, and addressing various medical and dental conditions that negatively affect your health. Dr. Martin keeps current on all new technologies and oral surgical techniques to provide his patients with the finest care.
