Heal Quickly & Naturally With Modern PRF Therapy

Dr. Hawkins performs tooth extractions, including many wisdom teeth extractions. If wisdom teeth are impacted, he’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. He also does bone grafts to strengthen bone following an extraction or earlier loss of a tooth.

Following either procedure, he can “supercharge” your natural healing process with a substance called Leukocyte – Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF). With nothing more than a small sample of your own blood, Dr. Hawkins uses a special process to create the L-PRF. When applied to your surgery site, it:

  • Promotes faster and more comfortable healing
  • Reduces bleeding, inflammation, and swelling
  • Lessens the incidence of possible complications like dry socket following an extraction

Soothe Your Nerves With Relaxing Dental Sedation

Dr. Hawkins has performed thousands of tooth extractions and other oral surgery procedures in his 27-plus years as a dentist. If you’re still nervous despite his expertise and our use of local anesthesia, you can get dental sedation. Unlike many general dentists, we offer three types of sedation. We can use the most appropriate one for your procedure and anxiety level. Your choices are:

  • Inhaled Sedation – This method takes effect within minutes. It wears off quickly, too. You won’t feel groggy. You can resume normal activities right away.
  • Oral Sedation – FDA-approved medication is delivered through a powder under your tongue. It will relax you more deeply than inhaled sedation. The effects linger, so you’ll need to arrange a ride home.
  • IV Sedation – This method is offered by relatively few dentists. It is often the best choice for more complicated procedures or for patients with a high level of anxiety. Like oral sedation, you won’t be able to drive for at least several hours.

Call Hawkins Complete Dental Service at 740-214-1301. You can also request an appointment online. Stay relaxed and comfortable before, during, and after your oral surgery in Zanesville.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery
What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure involving the jaw or mouth. In some cases, you would need to schedule oral surgery with an outside specialist, but Dr. Hawkins can perform several procedures right here in our office. You can rely on us for tooth extractions, many wisdom teeth removals, and bone grafting procedures.

Is oral surgery painful?

Because your comfort is a top priority to us, we do everything we can to provide pain-free experiences no matter the treatment you receive. Oral surgeries are no different. Before your dental surgery, we will make sure your mouth is numb so you don’t feel any pain during your procedure. We can also offer IV sedation to help you feel completely calm and relaxed for a more pleasant, comfortable experience.

How is bone grafting beneficial?

At Hawkins Complete Dental Service, we perform bone grafts for patients who need a way to preserve their jawbone after a tooth extraction. This is often done to ensure the extraction site remains strong and healthy enough to support dental implants when it’s time to replace the missing tooth. Your dentist will graft bone material in that area to stimulate healthy new growth as you heal.
