Millions of Americans are affected by tooth loss. It is crucial to replace missing teeth as quickly as possible, avoiding further bone and tissue loss. Dental implants provide one of the most secure and long-term solutions.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth typically erupt in the late teens or early 20s, and when they do, they can cause a range of issues and complications. Often, the best way to address these problems is to have our surgeon safely, comfortably, and expediently remove the wisdom teeth.
At Mercer Island Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we have ample experience providing All-on-4® dental implants, a clean and simple way to replace an entire row of teeth. In some situations, your new teeth can be attached on the same day that your implants are placed.
Sometimes, bone grafting is necessary to preserve existing bone or to prepare the mouth for dental implants. We are happy to talk with you about your bone grafting needs and about the services we can provide.
The goal of any oral health care provider is to help patients preserve their natural teeth. However, in some cases, teeth become so damaged and decayed that they cannot be saved. Dr. Streelman can remove them quickly, safely, and comfortably.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Some patients come to us because they have significant skeletal disorders that lead to difficulties in chewing, speech, and breathing. Our practice is happy to provide corrective jaw surgery for these patients.
Facial trauma can happen due to a slip-and-fall, a car collision, or a sports accident. Often, the result is broken facial bones or broken teeth. Our practice can provide a range of treatment options.
During a routine dental evaluation, providers may sometimes identify tumors, cysts, or other growths within the mouth. We can diagnose and treat these conditions in our office
Canines may not fully erupt into the smile and become impacted. Our surgeon has ample experience addressing impacted canines safely and effectively.
It is our goal to keep all of our patients as comfortable as possible throughout their procedures. As such, we happily offer various sedation methods for patients of all ages.
