Fresno Periodontists

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery may be necessary for the placement of dental implants, the evaluation or removal of suspicious lesions in the mouth, or the extraction of teeth, including wisdom teeth. Periodontists possess specialized training in performing oral surgery procedures that involve the manipulation of gums, jawbone, and other tissues, and may be better qualified to administer your procedure than a general dentist.

To acquire further knowledge about the advantages of receiving oral surgery from a board-certified periodontist such as Dr. Nicolas A. Ravon, kindly contact us at (559) 298-4700. Additionally, you may email us to schedule an appointment at our office.

Implant Surgery

In similarity to our organic teeth, dental implants are secured within the adjacent jaw bone. After complete healing and integration, they can support several tooth replacement alternatives, like crowns or bridges. The placement procedure is precise in technical terms, but the outcome is a natural and seamless tooth replacement, which is hassle-free and aesthetically satisfying.

Oral Pathology/Biopsy

Consists of thoroughly assessing and proficiently managing the range of diseases affecting the mouth and its surrounding areas, employing diagnostic techniques such as clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, and other examinations to identify disease causes and effects.

Oral Cancer Screening

Part of Dr. Nicolas A. Ravon’s preventative care initiative, oral cancer screening entails seeking out early and pre-symptomatic indicators of oral cancer to ensure the timeliest possible diagnosis and treatment. Detection of the disease at this stage enhances the efficacy of treatment, as by the time symptoms surface, cancer may have already started to spread.

It is important to note that just because Dr. Ravon recommends a screening test; it does not necessarily mean anyone thinks you have cancer. We provide screening tests even when you have no symptoms. Only if the test results are abnormal might you need further diagnostic tests to determine with certainty if you do in fact have oral cancer.

Oral Surgery Extractions

A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth through oral surgery. Common reasons for tooth removal include decay or damage significant enough to render the tooth not restorable, impacted or problematic teeth, or to make space for orthodontic treatment.
There are two types of extractions:
Simple Extraction -Oral surgery is performed on teeth that are visible above the gum line.
Surgical Extraction. – Oral surgery is performed on teeth that are not visible above the gum line or cannot easily be accessed, e.g. teeth that have broken under the gum line, have not erupted fully, or are impacted (such as wisdom teeth).

Wisdom Teeth Extraction in

Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that many people develop in their late teens or early twenties. When healthy and properly aligned they can be a valuable asset to the mouth but more often they are misaligned and require removal.
When misaligned, wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, nerves, and make surrounding teeth more vulnerable to decay. Some wisdom teeth become entrapped completely (impacted) in the soft tissue or jawbone, or only partially erupt, making them very susceptible to decay and infection. In such cases, we may recommend extraction.
