Oral Surgery

oral surgeryIn many general practices, it is common to refer patients to an oral surgeon for treatment such as tooth extractions, implant placement, and bone grafting. Dr. Olga Frey, however, has received the training and has the experience necessary to provide many of those services without the need for a referral. 

Tooth Extractions 

With a foundation based on preventive care, periodontal therapy, and high-quality restorative dentistry, Dr. Frey focuses on dental treatments to preserve teeth and prevent the need for extractions. Sometimes, however, an extraction may be the only way to restore a patient’s oral health. Common reasons for extractions include: 

  • Failed root canals
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Overcrowding
  • Infection
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Orthodontic planning
  • Aesthetics

When performing oral extractions, Dr. Frey encourages patient comfort and provides detailed instructions for post treatment care to ensure the best possible outcome. For cases requiring tooth replacement therapy, Dr. Frey will outline recommended treatment based on the patient’s health and lifestyle requirements. 

Dental Implant Placement 

Certified in implantology, Dr. Frey surgically places and restores dental implants in our East Providence, RI dental office. This offers our patients the highest quality treatment as well as continuity of care.

Using precise diagnostics, Dr. Frey will place the patient’s dental implant in the area of bone that offers the most density and support. Once the process of osseointegration occurs, she will restore the dental implant with a custom porcelain crown that completes the patient’s chewing surface and smile. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. 

Bone Grafting

A common problem with periodontal disease and tooth loss is the reduction of bone density. Reduced bone density can put adjacent teeth at risk and prevents the successful placement of dental implants. Dr. Frey offers bone grafting, protecting the health of her patients and making it possible for them to have dental implants as a tooth replacement option.

Bone grafting utilizes donor bone or synthetic bone to improve bone density in an area experiencing resorption (loss of bone density). Dr. Frey can surgically place the bone grafting material and monitor healing so that patients may proceed with dental implant treatment.
