Tri-Cities Dental Implant Specialist

When you meet new people, your teeth play a significant role in forming your first impression. A mouth of brilliant white, healthy teeth is charming and friendly, giving you the appearance of someone conscientious about their health and well-being.

People with damaged or missing teeth might find that they feel self-conscious about their smile, resulting in a loss of confidence and a drop in their self-image. Fortunately, Dr. Yallourakis offers several options available for dental treatment.

Over the last 10-years, more patients are opting to go with dental implants instead of dentures. Implants offer the patient superior stability and longevity, due to the implants being both structurally sound and natural looking.

The titanium post functions as the root for your implant, and it eventually fuses with your jawbone over several months after the surgery. The surgeon attaches a prosthetic crown to the titanium post, ensuring a secure fit. In some cases, it’s possible to use multiple implants to anchor the entire area of the lower or upper denture. In many cases the treatment can be completed all in one day.

The accurate structural features of dental implants provide the patient with plenty of advantages, both aesthetically and functionally.

Implants have a longer service life, and they look like your real teeth. Because the surgeon attaches the dental implants to the jawbone, the patient has an easier time with chewing. When booking your consultation for dental implants, you can expect a brief outpatient procedure completed in a hour or two. Please call the office of Dr. Yallourakis, in Kingsport, TN at 423-246-8211 to schedule an appointment so we may design a treatment plan that exactly fits your needs.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Specialist

Many people at some point in their life will have to deal with the growing of their wisdom teeth. Most people’s mouths can’t deal with the pressure of four new teeth on the jaw, and they start to feel pain as the wisdom teeth begin to emerge.

In most cases, the patient might not experience any apparent issues with their wisdom teeth. However, the majority of people require wisdom teeth extraction to bring their mouth and jaw back into balance and stop the impaction process. Earlier removal leads to faster healing and prevents future problems.

After wisdom teeth removal, you won’t experience any changes to your smile, and the mild pain fades away in a few days. It takes a few weeks for the gums to heal, but you can eat liquids and soft foods during your recovery without any pain.

If you’re having discomfort or concern or if you are unsure about future problems with your wisdom teeth call the office of Dr. Stephen Yallourakis at 423-246-8211 and arrange for a consultation. During the examination, the doctor x-rays your jaw to check for impaction. If the doctor determines that you require wisdom teeth removal, you’ll need to book an appointment for wisdom teeth extraction.

In most cases, the surgeon will complete the wisdom teeth removal in an hour or less at our practice. You’ll require local or general anesthesia, depending on your needs. During your consultation, your surgeon will break down everything you need to know about the procedure, including your anesthesia options.
