Socket Preservation

When an oral surgeon removes a tooth, the process can lead to a loss of bone that once held the tooth in place. The socket left behind may rapidly shrink after the extraction, which can lead to complications in the future. At Corsicana Oral & Facial Surgery, Dr. Medel can provide a socket preservation procedure to ensure you are capable of replacing your front teeth in the future.

Ridge Augmentation

In order to recreate the natural contour of your gums and bone (the alveolar ridge) that were lose due to tooth extraction, trauma, or periodontal disease, Corsicana Oral & Facial Surgery provides ridge augmentation procedures to our patients. By rebuilding the original height and width of your alveolar ridge, you will preserve your gums and bone for dental implants and aesthetics.

Sinus Lift Procedure

The maxillary sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces behind your cheeks and above your upper teeth. At Corsicana Oral & Facial Surgery, Dr. Medel performs sinus lift procedures that involve placing bone grafts which allow bone growth over time to prevent your sinus walls from becoming too thin, making dental implants possible.
