Though the phrase "bone harvesting" may sound more at home in a science-fiction movie than a dental office, Creek View Dental Group’s experienced technicians are quick to set their patients’ minds at ease. In dentistry, they explain, bone harvesting is merely a procedure that can give a thin jaw the thickness it needs to support dental implants.
The office’s trio of dentists specializes in bone harvesting and other general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. A friendly staff assists the dentists, diffusing any anxieties with warm smiles and gentle touch. If that’s not enough, the office offers a range of oral and IV sedation treatments that can help patients overcome their fears of pain and of their mouths being invaded by buzzing, insectoid tooth fairies.
