Procedures

As an oral surgeon, Dr. Redlinger performs a variety of surgical procedures in order to correct injuries, defects, and diseases to the teeth, jaws and tissues of the oral region. He is highly-qualified and expertly-trained to perform the following procedures.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts that will be surgically placed into your jaw bone where you are missing teeth. These implants serve as anchors that act like the root for an artificial tooth.

All-On-4® Treatment Concept

The All-On-4® Treatment Concept was developed to provide edentulous patients (patients with no teeth) with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The wisdom teeth are the third molars, and they are the last teeth in the mouth that will erupt. The main problem with the wisdom teeth is that most people simply don't have enough room in the back of their mouths for them to fit.

3D Imaging

At Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we utilize the Gendex CB500 system to take 3D images of your teeth. 3D imaging allows us to better understand the anatomy of your mouth, which is essential before we perform any type of corrective procedure. By using this state-of-the-art technology, we will be better prepared to accurately diagnose potential issues and develop the best possible treatment program for you.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-prosthetic surgery involves prepping your mouth before a prosthesis (partial or complete dentures) is put into place. When you wear dentures, they will sit on top of the bony ridge in your mouth, to ensure that they fit well and feel comfortable, it is essential that the tissue and bony area are the right size and shape.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that is used to fix problems associated with the bone or joints. It involves transplanting bone tissue, and in the field of dentistry, it is most commonly completed so that there is enough bone available to support dental implants.

Impacted Canines

An impacted tooth is one that is "stuck" and unable to erupt through the gums in order to function as intended. In situations where the eyeteeth don't erupt on their own, the oral surgeon and orthodontist will collaborate to attempt to get these teeth to erupt.

Oral Pathology

Periodic oral cancer screenings are essential to detect a problem while it is still treatable. If you have been diagnosed with oral cancer, you may need one of many treatment options, including: surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation.

TMJ Disorders

If you are experiencing jaw pain or discomfort, the office of Dr. Redlinger has experience treating issues that affect the alignment of your jaw and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Dr. Redlinger will examine your TMJ for irregularities during your comprehensive or periodic exam in order to detect signs of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects how you breathe when sleeping. If you think you may have sleep apnea, please give us a call at (775) 430-5355. We can help identify and diagnose the severity of the sleep apnea and discuss the best treatment options for your unique situation.

Cleft Lip & Palate

A cleft lip is a condition that affects the upper lip of roughly 1 in 1000 babies born in the United States. A cleft lip results in an opening at the top of the upper lip, either in the middle of the lip or to one side. Cleft palate is usually treated early on with a prosthetic device designed specifically for covering the roof of the mouth and creating a barrier between the mouth and the nasal cavity.

Facial Trauma

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons work to treat a variety of facial injuries. These professionals need to be highly skilled in emergency care, treatment methods for acute injuries, and long-term rehabilitation and reconstruction.

Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic surgery will be required when your jaws don't meet correctly or if your teeth just don't seem to fit within the jaws. The teeth can be straightened out with orthodontic treatments, but a misaligned jaw will need corrective jaw surgery to repair.
