Soho Oral Surgery Office

An oral surgeon differs from a general dentist because they must undergo an additional four to eight years of training in oral surgery. While a general dentist may be able to provide you with some of these services, it’s important to work with an experienced oral surgeon because they have received specialized training for these procedures.

Oral Surgery Services We Offer in Soho, NY

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are a set of top and bottom molars in the back of your mouth, typically appearing in your late teens or early twenties. This late development means they often do not have room to grow (erupt) out of the gum, creating painful impaction. When they do erupt from the gum, there is often no space for them, leading to overcrowding.

When you visit our office, Dr. Ebrahimi will assess the type of impaction you are facing. Your treatment will be based on how the tooth has erupted. For those who need extraction, the surgery is straightforward and quick, typically lasting 45 minutes. We have a variety of pain relief and sedation methods to suit the most anxious of patients, and we will be on hand to guide you through every step of the procedure.

Dental Implant

If you have lost a tooth due to a severe injury or extensive decay, it can affect the functionality of your teeth, making it difficult to speak and chew. A dental implant can restore functionality to your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

When you opt for a dental implant, a titanium screw is implanted into the gum and jawline, and a temporary crown is placed on top. Once you have healed, we will fit you for a permanent crown that looks and feels like your natural teeth. You can get a dental implant for one tooth or multiple.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a procedure to ensure there is enough bone to support a dental implant in the upper jaw. The surgery involves lifting the floor of the maxillary sinus and grafting bone onto the upper jaw. After the procedure, the bone will heal and strengthen, providing a strong, solid foundation for a dental implant.

Bone Grafting

Our jawbones provide a foundation for our teeth and, if needed, a dental implant. If this bone has been weakened or damaged by injury, gum disease, or abscesses, it won’t be possible to support an implant. Bone grafting can help regenerate the bone.

At your appointment, we will assess the amount of bone available using our 3D imaging technology. If sufficient bone loss is present, we can regenerate missing tissue with a bone graft. This involves placing artificial grafting material underneath the gum so it will fuse with your jawbone to create a sturdy structure for an implant.

Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety is common among patients and can get in the way of receiving the proper dental care they need. That’s why our office provides a couple of different sedation techniques that can keep you comfortable and relaxed during your dental appointments. We utilize nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation, depending on whether you need a mild or deep sedative. If you struggle with dental anxiety, speak with Dr. Ebrahimi about our sedation dentistry options.
