Oral surgery fits in beautifully with the way I practice here, with sedation, because again, the patients want to get as much of their dental work done in the fewest number of appointments. We may be doing multiple procedures. We may be doing fillings, crowns, bridges. They may have a tooth that has to come out or a wisdom tooth that has to come out. While they're sedated, and while they're numb, and they're totally comfortable, we do the oral surgery at the same time that we're doing the other dental procedures. Again, that's kind of more of that comprehensive approach to treatment and doing it in the fewest number of appointments comfortably with sedation.

Improving Your Smile And Health With Oral Surgery
Though it doesn’t seem pleasant, oral surgery can make you happier to wake up each day with a beautiful, pain-free smile. Our services include:
- Bone Grafts, which increase bone mass in your jaw so you can receive dental implants
- Ridge Augmentation, which can strengthen your jaw using bone-like material so implants can be placed and your appearance can improve
- Sinus Lifts to “make room” in your smile for dental implants in your upper jaw and ensure the implants are properly supported with extra bone
- Tooth Removals/Extractions, including wisdom teeth removals to prevent pain and keep your smile healthy
- Gum Grafts to replace missing gum tissue, which reduces sensitivity and improves the look of your smile
Preventing Pain Or Stress With Dental Sedation
You will have the option of remaining awake or asleep during any oral surgery procedure. Dr. Thrasher offers three safe sedation options so you can have a carefree experience, including:
- Nitrous oxide, which is inhaled and allows you to stay awake but calm
- Oral conscious sedation, which also allows you to remain awake yet drowsier than nitrous oxide (taken in pill form)
Dr. Michael Thrasher of Hillcrest Dental Care is indeed one of the trusted Waco, TX dentists because he has a lot of memberships and credentials, and of the associations that he belongs to is in Texas Dental Association.
