Are you missing teeth, or have dentures that slip out of place? You might benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted at in the jawbone. Since the dental implant serves the function of a tooth root, they provide stable and dependable support for a crown (that looks like a tooth). Dr. Grellner can perform a dental implant procedure to replace posterior teeth, restoring the balance of your smile and bite. Implants have the added benefit of potentially lasting a lifetime.
Dentures can also be affixed secured by implants. There is no need to worry about your dentures slipping out of place, or compromising your speech.
With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Grellner knows how to make your wisdom tooth extraction supremely comfortable. His first crucial step is to work closely with patients to determine the absolute best possible time (or stage in the development of the tooth) to perform extraction. While undergoing surgery, his approach is kinder to your mouth, particularly the bone, so trauma and pain are minimized. He has also developed an advanced anesthesia technique that means a quicker recovery and fewer uncomfortable side-effects.
Dr. Grellner has developed an IV anesthesia technique that virtually eliminates the uncomfortable side-effects of nausea and dizziness so often associated with IV sedation, regardless of the depth of the anesthesia. With this technique, the anesthesia effects dissipate in about half the time of standard techniques. Dr. Grellner is licensed to administer anesthesia himself, and does so with infusion pumps that deliver constant micro-doses of medication, smoothing out the typical “roller coaster” anesthetic patients might experience elsewhere. His patients can enjoy returning to a steady relaxed but clear state of mind and body quicker, returning home much more alert than ever before.
Sometimes a tooth has suffered such extensive damage from decay or trauma that it cannot be saved. If you need a tooth extraction, rest assured that Dr. Grellner can perform one for you that reduces any discomfort to an absolute minimum. His gentle and methodical surgical approach keeps your comfort in mind, and minimizes recovery times. He can replace lost back teeth with dental implants.
Dr. Grellner was invited to speak at the Leadership Speakers Academy at West Point, NY last fall. His speech on wisdom teeth presented information of importance to parents of teens, information that they rarely get in time to take advantage of. Dr. Grellner reveals the age group who has the best experience when dealing with their wisdom teeth, and why risk and difficulty is reduced for them.
Besides meeting business leaders from all walks of life in the U.S and overseas, Dr. Grellner also had the honor and privilege of meeting and hearing astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Lt. Gen Russell Honore speak. These 2 amazing American heros and leaders presented an inspiring look at their incredible pasts as well as their vision towards the future in their respective areas of expertise.
