ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Have you ever had a surgeon give you his personal cell phone number after having surgery? Then you haven’t been to ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. We strive to give you the best, most personal care possible and giving our patients our personal, after-hours contact numbers is just one of the ways we do it. Welcome to the ArkLaTex experience!
Quality Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Shreveport, Bossier City and Minden, Louisiana
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Smith, Lustig, Banker, and Benson manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and face. Our doctors practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with a particular interest in dentoalveolar surgery (such as third molar removal), dental implantology, and outpatient anesthesia. Our advanced techniques and utilization of state-of-the-art technology minimize post-operative discomfort and decrease recovery times. Intravenous anesthesia is available to relieve anxiety for those who prefer it. Our primary goal for each of our patients is to provide solutions to your oral surgery needs in a caring, comfortable, welcoming environment. We strive to provide an unmatched surgical experience through patient education, state-of-the-art technology and techniques, and exceptional patient care. Let us introduce you to the ArkLaTex experience!
A Certified Surgical Staff
The surgical staff at ArkLaTex Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants who assist our doctors with administration of IV sedation and surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
State-of-the-Art Diagnostic and Treatment Technologies
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, cone-beam 3D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning, and delivery of care. Undistorted, anatomically correct views of the jaws, teeth and facial bones are easily generated. These 3D images enable a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2D technologies. These images are compatible with our X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation System, which allows us to plan dental implants virtually, and then use interactive, real-time guidance to place those implants with exceptional precision and accuracy. Once those implants are healed, our iTero Digital Impression System is used to take molds of your teeth with no “goop.” Not only is it less messy than traditional impressions, but it is also more accurate, which translates into less time in the dental chair!Find Us On
