Oral Surgery & Enhancement
Removal of Teeth
Once your dentist has decided that dental extraction is necessary, Dr. Morales will perform an examination, that includes an x-ray, to further evaluate the tooth and surrounding bone structure. The extraction procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves rocking the tooth back and forth to ease it from the socket. Some teeth may need to be surgically removed in sections. After the procedure, an ice pack will be applied to reduce post procedure swelling. In some instances, medications are prescribed as part of your postoperative care. You will be asked to follow a soft, cool diet the day of surgery, and you can return to normal diet and activities the following day.

Platelet Rich Plasma
Potential benefits of PRP include the reduction of bleeding and bruising, decreasing inflammation and swelling, enhanced wound closure, accelerated bone and tissue growth and reduction of overall healing times.At the beginning of your surgical procedure a small amount of blood is drawn by a member of the surgical team. Since the PRP is made from your own blood, it is insulated from the risk of disease transmission. Dr. Morales will then apply the PRP topically to the wound site, usually in bone and tissue grafting procedures, to stabilize the graft material and accelerate bone and tissue growth.
