Ashland Oral Surgeons from people just like you.

"Last year, I had pain in my lower jaw. After a through examination I was referred to a periodontist (a different practice) and they arranged a same day appointment." The periodontist was outstanding and took care of my problem. The dentist office is well connected and know who to send you to if outside of their expertise.

-Karen C.

"I met with Dr.
regrading an old bridge that I had, that I felt was wearing out and would need replacement. While I've heard great" things about implants, I was afraid of both the cost and the surgery. Dr.
put my mind at ease. He discussed at great length the pro's and con's of bridge replacement versus an implant. More important was the level of comfort I would have when my procedure is done. I was never happy with my old bridge from 10 years ago, it was always a cause for concern. I am really looking forward to my implant. He also worked out a payment plan that is affordable for me. I am a happy patient.

If your dentist has recommended that you have any type of cosmetic or oral surgery, an oral surgeon will likely perform it. Learn how oral surgery can help improve your smile and enhance your dental health.

 I am familiar witht he ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers across the country, in particluar, the one in Overland Park, KS.  They are a "one stop" implant center.  The doctors there are at the top of their field, and an advantage is that you have all of the specialists that will be working with you in the same place.  That would have to make communication easier between doctors.  They usually offer seminars for patients and I think, offer free consultations, which is always worthwhile.

  If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it.   Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials.  Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.

The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.

The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
.1.  You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications.  Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.

2.  Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed?  Have they had any major complications with any cases?  Ask to see photos if possible.

3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.

4. Follow your instincts.  If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.

5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options.  If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list.  Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps.  You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.

I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

As a  Dentist, I am sorry to hear about your denture nightmare and I know how frustrating that can be.  I am surprised that your doctor wasn't willing to work with you on some type of solution.  A few options would be either remaking the dentures once more,  or offering to return some of the money and have you return the dentures.   Unfortunately, the doctor has put in a lot of their time and lab expenses, but the patient also  has time and money invested.  You might try sending a letter re-explaining the problems you hand and offering an acceptible and fair solution.  Be sure to keep a copy of it and any correspondence you receive from the Dental Office.  In the event that you don't get anywhere, you have documentation of the problem. 

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up?  Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed.  At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense. 

If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area.  I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA.  Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board  (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.)  This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state.  They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself.   After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.  

As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school.  The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals.  Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price. 

I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Oral Surgery reviews in Ashland


I have always had a huge fear of the dentist and was ashamed of my teeth. The crew at Hudson Dental though are so sweet and relaxed that I don't feel as self conscious anymore and actually look forward to seeing them. Even though I still deal with a lot of (totally irrational) anxiety whenever I need actual work done, Dr.

has such a calm, quiet personality and I know that they will do everything possible to keep me comfortable and pain free. If you ask, the girls will even put a movie on for you, or play whatever music you like to listen to if you're going to be in the chair a while! Their hygienist is so gentle, and I have never had a surprise billing issue with the front desk, so all in all I'm very happy with this office.

Never had someone in this profession take as much time with me as this doctor. I have never had a health professional be as kind, supportive, knowledgeable or compassionate. Not only does he have a stellar rep among his

We arrived and paid the remaining amount due up front as per requested. We watched a brief post operative video before they called my daughter in. Wait time was short and I was able to talk to the assistant briefly and she listened carefully and then my daughter went in. The surgery went surprisingly quickly (40 min.) . They went over home procedures and my daughter was lucid and gave a thumbs up when I went to wheel her out to the car. HOWEVER, the home recovery was very difficult. (We also noticed a small chip on one of her front teeth which they didn't mention happened during surgery.) My daughter was in ALOT of pain (understandably) and though no dry socket, she was vomiting on the 4th day and was extremely swollen still and felt awful. It was obvious she was not able to drive back to Bloomington to attend classes on Tuesday. One of her professor's requested a doctor's note stating why she would be out on Tuesday. So I called Dr. Fallender's office to get a note faxed to the professor. THEY SAID NO. I reminded her that my daughter had had 4 impacted
Ashland Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
teeth pulled and that she was vomiting and still very swollen and was in no way able to drive back to Bloomington to attend class the next day. The office person said that ALL people were given 3-4 days to recover and that was that. Beyond that , they were not able to help. We felt like once they were finished with the surgery and they had the money, their helpfulness and politeness was out the window. Even the doctor's call-back the evening after the surgery (while a nice gesture in theory) seemed to be a check off on the "LIST" as my daughter said he was talking to others in the background while he was talking to her and he seem very distracted. 2 weeks later and she still has numbness in her chin and bottom lip which we read could be a side effect as nerves may have been compromised during the surgery..........we'll see if it is permanent. So a mixed experience and though Dr. Fallender was a good surgeon and did the extractions well, the rest of the experience turned us off to any future interaction with them.

They told me I needed a root canal twice, the root canal doctor told me that I didn't need a root canal and that the tooth was fine, he even said "I would take that tooth out and put in my own mouth". I was told by the oral surgeon that if my tooth wasn't hurting then I didn't need to have it done, he took an X-

to double check and said that I wouldn't need the root canal unless my

tooth was hurting, I still had to pay the $95 consultation fee despite nothing be done, I do understand that the oral surgeon's time is valuable and he came in on a Saturday for the consultation, but the dentist had told me that I needed to have this work done. If they had never told me I needed to have the root canal or an extraction, I wouldn't have came in to the see oral surgeon in the first place. I had called for prices and the office seems to always have different girls working and the office can't seem to keep their stories straight, when I called to set up the appointment and get prices the information they had given me, wasn't the same as what the told me when I went in today. My only major issue with this office is all the misinformation, the dental hygienist here are all very nice and I like the office environment as well. I've been going here for years and would just like everyone to be on the same page and the information to be the same when I speak with anyone at the office, opposed to consistently receiving misinformation.
