Soul Dental Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery

Welcome to Soul Dental in NYC. Our three Manhattan offices boast a full range of highly skilled specialists and facilities for nearly any dental need our patients have, including oral and maxillofacial surgery. We focus on two primary missions when it comes to surgery: providing the very best surgical services, and making your experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Soul Dental Oral Surgery

Extensive Range of Oral Surgery Services in New York City

We excel in a wide range of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures, ensuring your dental care is in the most capable hands in NYC. From simple teeth extractions to complex sinus lift procedures, our highly skilled team of oral surgeons is trained to manage various cases with precision and care. 

Teeth Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal

Our oral surgeons are experienced in handling various tooth extraction cases, ensuring each procedure is tailored to the specific needs of the patient. We perform both simple and surgical extractions catering to individual conditions. The types of extractions we provide include:

  • Simple extractions: Suitable for teeth that are visible outside the gumline and can be removed with minimal effort, these extractions are performed using local anesthesia.
  • Surgical extractions: Necessary for teeth that are broken, impacted, or not easily accessible, our skilled surgeons use advanced techniques and equipment for accurate and gentle tooth removal.
  • Wisdom tooth extraction: Many patients experience crowding or impaction when their wisdom teeth erupt, causing discomfort and posing potential risks to oral health. Our experienced oral surgeons assess each case to determine the most suitable extraction approach.
  • Exposure for orthodontic treatment: Occasionally, a tooth may fail to erupt naturally and require surgical exposure to facilitate orthodontic treatment. Our experienced team performs this procedure carefully, ensuring a seamless integration into your overall orthodontic treatment plan.

Dental Implants

As a premier oral surgery practice in NYC, we are committed to providing customized, durable dental implants, enhancing both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile. A dental implant is a small titanium screw surgically placed in the jawbone to replace a tooth that is entirely missing or beyond restoration. It then serves as a “root” for a crown or other restoration. Our range of dental implant services includes:

  • Single tooth dental implants: Perfect for individuals missing a single tooth, this procedure replaces the root of the lost natural tooth to support a single dental crown, allowing you to eat and smile again with confidence.
  • Multiple teeth dental implants: Ideal for patients missing several teeth, this treatment will support multiple dental crowns, which will restore full dental functionality and preserve facial structure.
  • Full-arch dental implants: This transformative treatment is perfect for patients missing all teeth on the lower or upper jaw. Using a number of strategically positioned implant posts, we can secure a full denture that not only looks but also functions like natural teeth.
  • Implant-supported bridges: For individuals missing a few teeth in a row, implant-supported bridges provide a firm and long-lasting replacement that doesn’t rely on adjacent natural teeth for support.

At Soul Dental, we place heavy emphasis on patient education. We want our patients to know what to expect, why we recommend a specific procedure, and what their treatment timeline is. For that reason, we like to make sure everyone knows up front that implants and restorations such as bridges or crowns are typically placed separately and several months apart. Once the surgery site heals and the bone tissue fuses with the titanium implant, then we can place your full tooth replacement, and you can begin to chew with it just as you would your natural tooth. 

Sinus Lift Surgery

Sinus lift surgery is a precise and intricate procedure aimed at creating sufficient space in the upper jaw to accommodate a future dental implant. It’s relatively common for patients to lack sufficient bone width or density for a needed implant. A sinus lift surgery, also known as sinus augmentation, lifts the floor of the sinus membrane and augments the upper jaw bone so that the implant can be placed. Our expert team at Soul Dental provides reliable and safe sinus lift procedures in NYC, ensuring minimal discomfort with optimal outcomes. Our comprehensive sinus lift treatment involves:

  • Detailed assessment: Before any procedure, we carry out an extensive evaluation of your oral and sinus health to determine the necessity of a sinus lift and ensure your upper jaw can adequately support the dental implant.
  • Collaborative treatment planning: Your oral surgery specialist will talk with you and any other specialists or dentists involved in your care to determine the best treatment plan for you.
  • Technique selection: Depending on your individual circumstances, we decide on either a direct (lateral window) or indirect (osteotome) sinus lift technique.
  • Bone grafting or augmentation: For patients who need additional bone volume, we offer bone grafting or augmentation as part of the sinus lift surgery. This ensures a strong foundation for the dental implant.
  • Precise surgery: Our highly skilled surgeons use state-of-the-art equipment and technology to perform sinus lift surgery with high precision, minimizing discomfort during and after the procedure.
  • Thorough follow-up: After your surgery, we arrange regular follow-up appointments to monitor healing and ensure the success of the procedure.

Bone Grafts

As a part of our comprehensive range of oral surgery services, we offer precise and effective bone grafting in NYC. Bone grafting is an important procedure for patients who lack sufficient bone support for dental implants. In our commitment to offering bespoke oral care solutions, we provide a variety of bone grafting procedures based on individual anatomy and needs:

  • Autogenous bone grafting: This procedure involves harvesting bone from one area of the patient’s body, usually the chin or jaw, and transplanting it to the area needing support. Given that it uses the patient’s own bone, this method has a high success rate.
  • Allograft bone grafting: We use this procedure when autogenous grafting is not an option. The bone for allografts is sourced from a cadaver, sanitized, and processed for safe use.
  • Xenograft bone grafting: In cases where human bone isn’t used, we opt for xenografts. This procedure uses bone from animals, typically bovine sources, which is processed for human use.
  • Alloplastic bone grafting: For this procedure, we use synthetic materials, such as hydroxyapatite or other biocompatible composite materials, to stimulate the body’s natural bone growth.

Once again, in the interest of having the most informed dental patients in NYC, it’s important to note that patients who require a bone graft may have their treatment plan spread over as many as 12 months–up to six months for the graft to heal, up to six months for the implant to fuse, and then finally a restoration.

Oral Pathology and Biopsy

Soul Dental offers expert oral pathology services to detect and treat any potential oral health issues early on. Our comprehensive approach to oral pathology includes:

  • Oral examination: Regular oral examinations help catch any potential early signs of pathology. These include abnormalities or changes in the lips, cheeks, tongue, gums, throat, and any hard or soft tissues in the mouth.
  • Biopsy: If abnormalities are detected during the oral examination, our expert team will conduct a biopsy. This involves taking a small sample of tissue from the affected area which is then sent to a lab for further microscopic examination.
  • Interpretation of results: Once we receive the lab results, our team will interpret the findings, shed light on your condition and, together with you, make well-informed decisions about the next steps in the treatment process.
  • Treatment: Depending on the diagnosis, treatment can range from monitoring the condition to removing the lesions surgically, or employing other treatment modalities.

It’s important to note that early detection is critical when it comes to oral pathology. Regular dental checkups play a key role in maintaining good oral health and can even save your life. At Soul Dental, we are committed to your long-term oral health. Trust our dedicated, knowledgeable team to carefully guide you through any needed pathology services, ensuring you receive the comprehensive care that your oral health deserves.
