Oral Surgical Associates has earned its reputation as a trusted oral surgery office by providing exceptional dental care that utilizes the most advanced dental technology. Dr. Armando Gama and Dr. Eugene Morris offer a range of state-of-the-art dental instruments and services that makes the patient experience as pleasant as possible. Our office uses the i-CAT® three-dimensional cone beam imaging and panoramic x-rays for precise diagnosis and accurate treatment planning. We also offer different sedation options to maximize patient comfort, as well as the cutting edge platelet-rich plasma therapy to expedite healing after oral surgery. When you come in for a consultation at our Missoula, MT, office, our team can explain the various benefits of the dental technology that we utilize.
With the i-CAT 3-D imaging system, Drs. Gama and Morris can capture precise images and panoramic x-rays. This advanced machine exposes patients to significantly less radiation exposure than traditional x-ray equipment while obtaining more detailed images. These scans allow us to provide the most precise diagnoses and treatment planning. We are also able to optimize your treatment process because a single scan provides highly detailed, 3-D views of both the soft and hard tissues, including the craniofacial structures.
Sedation can allow you to undergo comfortable treatment, even during the most extensive procedure. Some patients may feel anxious about undergoing oral surgery, and their discomfort and phobia may prevent them from receiving the vital care they need. In other cases, patients may be unable to go through lengthy and complex procedures such as bone grafting or dental implants surgery due to an inability to sit for long periods of time.
Oral Surgical Associates offers local anesthesia along with general anesthesia or nitrous oxide sedation to make the treatment process comfortable and relaxing for patients. Nitrous oxide sedation, also called laughing gas, can provide light to medium sedation that allows patients to remain awake and relaxed throughout their procedure. General anesthesia is an effective method of pain and anxiety management through deep sedation, and patients are unconscious during the treatment.
Dr. Gama and Dr. Morris also offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in conjunction with a bone graft procedure to accelerate new tissue generation and improve the healing process. Taken from a small sample of your own blood, the plasma containing a rich concentration of platelets is mixed with the grafting material to speed up the regenerative process and significantly reduce healing time, allowing patients to undergo dental implants surgery sooner.
Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to offer precise treatments with superior comfort and shorter recovery times.
