Oral Plastic Surgery
Oral plastic surgery can help improve not only the aesthetic appearance of a patient’s smile, but their health and quality of life as well. Dr. Nicosia offers several revitalizing services, including frenectomies for correcting noticeable lip or tongue-ties and crown lengthening, which involves the careful removal of excessive soft tissue so that those in need can finally say goodbye to smiles that seem overly short or “gummy” in nature.
Ideally, every patient would be able to maintain their natural teeth for life, but circumstances can arise (such as advanced decay or a traumatic injury) where extraction becomes the best choice for improving oral health. Dr. Nicosia can handle tooth extractions with excellent precision while also ensuring that patients feel at ease throughout the procedure. If needed, he can also immediately begin rebuilding the lost tooth with a state-of-the-art dental implant; socket preservation is available as well for patients who are not ready for an implant just yet but would like to preserve the jawbone structure.
Many patients struggle with negative emotions surrounding the dentist’s office; in fact, these nerves can often be so intense in nature that important appointments are skipped and dental problems actively grow worse as a result. Here in Houston, Dr. Nicosia wants to alleviate your worries by offering a full menu of calming sedation services, including local anesthetic, oral conscious sedation, and even IV sedation, which involves an in-office anesthesiologist for maximized patient safety.
