Dental ImplantsDr. Mack Elbert Coker provides dental implants, titanium posts that are surgically inserted in your jaw. As your bone and gums heal, they will fuse around these posts, creating a stable base for a new tooth restoration. Dr. Coker provides his patients with oral sedation, nitrous oxide or other anesthetics to provide the most comfortable experience possible. Dr. Coker believes in preventing pain before it starts rather than managing pain after it has already begun. Healing from dental implant surgery varies from patient to patient, after which you can receive your permanent restoration.
CrownsA dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is bonded directly on top of your damaged tooth. However, if your tooth has broken off near your gum line, there may no longer be enough surface area to which the crown can attach. Alternatively, your tooth may have suffered severe decay, and there may no longer be enough dental structure for a crown. During a crown lengthening procedure, Dr. Coker will remove bone and soft tissue to create a strong base for your restoration.
DenturesDr. Coker places dental implants developed by the most reputable companies in the world to provide his patients with the highest quality care. In addition to traditional dental implants, Dr. Coker also offers mini implants. These posts are smaller in diameter, so he can place them in areas where you may have suffered bone recession. If you are going to receive an implant-supported denture, he may use the renowned All-on-4® method, which offers patients reduced healing time and discomfort.
Oral Cancer ScreeningRegular visits with a periodontist are important for your oral and general health. During biannual visits with Dr. Mack Elbert Coker, patients undergo cleanings, oral cancer screenings, and full evaluations. These appointments are especially important for those who have a personal or family history of periodontal disease. Dr. Coker offers thorough and personalized care. He also works with local dentists so patients can alternate cleanings for comprehensive care.

Tooth ExtractionsDr. Coker performs extractions of single teeth and wisdom teeth. He is experienced performing even complex wisdom tooth extractions, including the removal of impacted teeth. If you are having a damaged tooth extracted, or having your wisdom teeth removed after age 27, he will typically perform a bone graft in conjunction with the extraction. To aid in your healing, Dr. Coker often offers SockIt!®. This all-natural gel stimulates healing and prevents gum sensitivity.
Bone GraftingIf you have suffered bone recession as a result of missing teeth or you are preparing for an extraction, you may benefit from bone grafting. Contact Dr. Coker today to learn more about this treatment option.
Periodontal SurgeryIf a patient has a broken or severely damaged tooth, it can complicate restorative care. Crown lengthening exposes a greater portion of a patient's tooth, creating more space to provide adequate support for a dental crown. Thanks to his expertise in periodontal surgery, many general dentists send their patients to Dr. Mack Elbert Coker in anticipation of upcoming crown placement. Dr. Coker uses gentle, precise techniques to create more surface area for the restoration. To learn more about crown lengthening, as well as alternative treatment options, contact our Houston office and schedule an appointment today.
