Enjoy Faster Healing & Better Results With Our Holistic Approach

As a biologic dentist and the only board-certified naturopathic physician in the area, Dr. Porter offers a unique holistic approach to protect your smile.

For your oral surgery, he uses platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). Made from a small sample of your own blood, it will regenerate healthy bone and soft tissue. This speeds your healing process and helps you avoid extraction complications like dry socket. He also uses an IV antioxidant therapy with vitamin C before and after the surgery to encourage healing and avoid infection.

In addition, he uses autohemotherapy to activate your immune cells with a mix of your own blood and a safe level of medical ozone. This process will treat the infected area without harmful side effects to surrounding healthy tissue. It can:

  • Increase the oxygen within your tissues, organs, and cells
  • Improve circulation
  • Quicken the healing of wounds
  • Enhance your cells immune response

Our holistic methods give patients far better results and a healthier smile than the more traditional approaches used by other dental practices.

Rehabilitate Your Smile With Dental Surgery

By taking a biological approach along with the use of modern dental technology like 3-D imaging, we’re a preferred choice for many patients. Plus, when you visit our practice, you won’t have to visit an outside specialist for your surgical needs. Depending on your oral health needs, you may need dental surgery such as:

  • Tooth Extraction – While we strive to save your tooth as much as possible, an extraction may be necessary to protect your smile from an infection, address overcrowding, or remove damaged teeth.
  • Wisdom Tooth Removal – We’ll remove your wisdom teeth before they create oral health complications.
  • Ridge Augmentation – We’ll rebuild the ridge of your gums and jaw in the area of tooth loss or extraction to prepare your mouth for implants
  • Gum and Bone Grafts These procedures restore gum and bone loss in your jaw to give your implants strong structure.
  • Sinus Lift – This process increases the bone health in your jaw and makes room in your sinus cavity for implants.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

What can I eat after oral surgery?

We recommend that you eat soft foods and liquids for two or three days after your surgery. Yogurt, soup, pudding, ice cream, and protein shakes are all good choices. It’s a good idea to avoid spicy foods, acidic foods, crunchy foods, and tough-to-chew foods for a week or so.

Does oral surgery cause jaw pain?

Many people do feel soreness after oral surgery, but that fades as you recover. If anything, oral surgery is done to alleviate pain and long-term oral health problems. Dr. Porter will be happy to advise you on the best way to recover from your surgery so you can get back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For a healthy recovery, it’s best to ease slowly into exercise. You’ll want to avoid sports, workouts, and most other physical activities for the first 24 hours. Doing too much too soon can impede healing. For example, it can interfere with blood clotting. We recommend taking it easy for at least a few days.
