Contact our Commerce City practice today to get started!
In today’s world, dental implants are the clear frontrunner when it comes to replacing lost teeth. Because they replicate the entire tooth – including the root hidden underneath the gum line – they support the patient’s oral health while also providing a strong and functional “tooth” that’s virtually indistinguishable from the original one. Here in Commerce City, Dr. Fangman can handle the surgical portion of your implant treatment, inserting the implants themselves into the gum and bone tissue so he can create a strong, enduring foundation for restorations.
IV Sedation & General Anesthesia
The prospect of undergoing oral surgery can be an intimidating and even fearful one sometimes. That’s why our team works so hard to help patients feel truly comfortable throughout the process. If you’re in need of some extra help when it comes to achieving relaxation, IV sedation & general anesthesia can be provided upon request. Several options are available, including oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. We’ll be happy to explain the differences between them during your initial consultation and help you select the one that works best for your specific concerns and preferences.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth (also known as third molars) are the last permanent teeth to emerge into a patient’s smile, and many people see them as a “rite of passage.” Unfortunately, most mouths don’t have enough space to accommodate these teeth, and as a result, they can become impacted (trapped in the bone and gums) or overcrowded. Oral surgeons like Dr. Fangman are the best choice for your wisdom tooth extraction, and you can rest assured that he’ll handle the procedure in an efficient and comfortable manner.
Treatment of Impacted Canines
Tooth impaction is always a serious matter, especially when it involves the adult teeth children need for their smile to function as it should. At Altitude Oral Maxillofacial Implant Center, our team can assist with guiding canine teeth out of the gum and bone tissue and into their rightful place at last. Dr. Fangman will work alongside orthodontists to ensure a smooth and successful treatment process, which will likely last up to a year.
Have you experienced a severe injury that’s left your face and/or jaw badly damaged? Our oral surgeon understands the impact of these events, and we’re here to provide you with the experienced, compassionate approach you need most during this trying time. With facial trauma care, we can repair injuries that have negatively affected the soft tissue, the teeth, the jaw itself, and more in order to help you get back to living your life without pain or embarrassment.
Do you regularly find it difficult to speak in a way that’s easy to understand? Is your jaw constantly sore or protruded in a way that seems excessive? Congenital defects and injuries can leave patients with these serious problems, but our team at Altitude Oral Maxillofacial Implant Center may be able to make the frustration go away with corrective jaw surgery! We’ll work hard to reestablish the health and function you sorely need, collaborating with dentists and other specialists along the way as needed to ensure a smooth recovery process.
On average, nearly one person dies from oral cancer every hour – but why? Typically, it’s because that person’s unique case wasn’t correctly identified until the disease had already progressed, leaving them with slim chances of recovery. At Altitude Oral Maxillofacial Implant Center in Commerce City, our team understands that discovering oral pathology early on could be a true matter of life and death. That’s why we work to not only identify suspicious symptoms but provide treatment as needed to help patients regain the oral health and function they need.
Facial Cosmetic Surgery
If your facial appearance isn’t what you want it to be because of aging, physical defects, or serious injuries, our surgical team may be able to help. With cosmetic surgery, it’s possible to correct imperfections and transform not only your overall look but your sense of self-confidence for the better! Our talented doctor can address concerns regarding facial skin, the nose, the neck, the ears, and other areas.
Cleft Lip / Palate Treatment
Cleft lip and cleft palate are two physical deformities that form before infants have even properly left the womb. They’re recognizable very early on in a child’s development, too – parents will see that either their upper lip or the roof of the mouth isn’t fully connected as it should be. This can lead to not only difficulties with eating and speaking properly, but severe emotional consequences as well. That’s why Dr. Fangman strongly recommends correcting the problem as soon as possible here at Altitude Oral Maxillofacial Implant Center.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Waking up exhausted, struggling with memory and concentration, constant snoring – these are all telltale signs of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition by your doctor but have found it difficult to achieve true relief through non-invasive methods for treatment like CPAP machines or oral appliances, surgery might be the logical next step. Our doctor can adjust your jaw and/or airway in order to finally let air flow freely and help you stay soundly asleep throughout the night.
