Your dentist is great. Your family has seen them for years. They’re practically family. You trust them. But there are some dental health needs your dentist doesn’t specialize in. You need a maxillofacial surgeon (also known as an oral surgeon. The good news is this is an easier process than you think. Don’t let the surgery part of oral surgery scare you off. And guess what? Oral surgery through Dr. Puckett is more affordable than you think.
Here are some reasons you might need oral surgery — and how we make the whole process more affordable and gentler than you might get from other clinics. We’ve drilled down on our procedures to make affordable oral surgery a reality. Our unique approach to maxillofacial surgery is what makes us worth the drive — why people are willing to come out to see us from Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton. We make it worth their while.
Root canals aren’t always perfect. Sometimes they fail. Sometimes you need an oral surgeon to remove them through a process known as an apicoectomy. We conduct mouth surgery to remove the tip of the root from the tooth, cutting out the infection at the source. This will protect your teeth, as well as your gums, surrounding jawbone, and nearby teeth.
Sometimes a tooth will grow at an abnormal angle and won’t emerge from the gumline. This is known as an impacted tooth. Sometimes it doesn’t emerge from the gums at all. Wisdom teeth are classic examples. We can do surgery to safely remove wisdom teeth so it does not affect your jawbone or surrounding teeth.
It’s not the end of the world. Missing teeth happen to the best of us, even at a relatively young age. But if you don’t do anything about it can cause problems with surrounding teeth, or jawbone, or even cause your face to have a “caved-in” look. We can do oral surgery to attach dental implants into your jaw that essentially function like your natural tooth. Dental implants are the best remedy to missing teeth. And yes, we do offer same day dental implants near you.
How We Save You Money
We’re an affordable oral surgeon. And we don’t just say that because it sounds nice. We go out of our way to reduce your costs while still providing high quality, gentler care. Our affordable approach is why we are the go-to affordable oral surgeon for patients in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton. We are their go-to choice for a cheap oral surgeon.
First, we’ll only charge you for the anesthesia time required. Most oral surgeons will charge you for the anesthesia time the insurance company allows, even though it may require far less. Plus, we only code for the exact position of the teeth when doing such things as wisdom teeth removal. Some less scrupulous oral surgeons will code to a higher level just to milk the insurance money. But the best maxillofacial surgeons will never do that.
Finally, we don’t let the insurance companies boss us around. We advocate for your care and do our best to see that it’s covered to the fullest by your insurance. And we base our fees on a fair and reasonable understanding of our costs and value of the service provided. We do not estimate our fees on the recommended amounts listed in the ‘Fee Schedule’ book which most oral surgery and dental offices use. We’re an affordable oral surgeon because we drill into the details to keep costs down.
We strive to be an affordable oral surgeon while providing you high quality care with a gentler approach. You’re like family to us. We want the best for you and your family. And that means doing everything we can to keep costs down without compromising on the quality of care.
