Dental Implants in Chapel Hill, Durham & Sanford NC

Dental Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With dental implants, the person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that replacement teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.

 

The Importance of Board Certification

We are one of the only practices in the area in which all doctors are board certified. Board certification is important when choosing an oral surgeon because it signifies that your doctor has passed a rigorous exam and application process by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS), demonstrating achievement of thorough training, qualifications and experience. Not every oral surgeon is board certified, but when you visit OMSA, you can rest assured knowing that ours are.

Patient Review By Susan E

Over the last 4 years, Dr Ruvo removed all 4 wisdom teeth from each of my 3 grandchildren and now he has helped me with the dental implant as well. The entire experience from the first call to schedule to the final check up call could not have gone more smoothly. The staff, all of the staff, were friendly and supportive, as well as Dr Ruvo. I can't thank him enough!

Patient Review By Heather A

I took my daughter Paige to Dr. Ruvo. He and his staff were wonderful! Paige had very little post - op sensitivity and it did not last long. I work in the dental field so I am familiar with extractions and the pain that goes along with extractions. He did an amazing job her ext site is healing beautifully. Thank you for taking such good care of Paige.

Patient Review By Cheryl D

My son recently had upper jaw surgery performed by Dr Serlo.and assisted by Dr Saco. We are extremely happy with the surgery. We had been working towards this surgery for over a year, we had a delay due to my son's teeth not being exactly where they needed to be, so a few adjustments from the Orthodontist and we were ready for surgery. Dr Serlo was very supportive to us when we had that delay we were frustrated ,he assured us that waiting for better alignment was what was needed. Dr Serlo was supportive post op also making sure my son was doing what was necessary for recovery after his release from the hospital . He was always available if we needed him by cellphone and checked in on him a few days after surgery on the weekend to insure he was progressing well.All of the staff at the practice are extremely friendly and so very helpful, any time I called or emailed with a question I had an answer very quickly. Stephanie was the assistant that worked with us at every visit , it was nice to have the same person working with Dr Serlo at each appointment, it felt like we were all on this journey to surgery together. She was always helpful and told us what to expect with each visit. Becky is in charge of insurance and she was amazing. Our insurance had denied us originally which Dr Serlo told us would happen but Becky follows up and appealed our case and got us approved. She was very informative about what to expect from billing and easy to reach when ever I had a question. All the staff was amazing. We just had our 6 week check and we are so happy with the whole process and my son can't stop smiling, he is so happy with his new smile. I would recommend anyone that needs Jaw surgery to see Dr Serlo & OMSA.

Patient Review By Camille H

I have been very satisfied with this process. Dr. Serlo answered all of my questions prior to and after the surgery; he phoned me twice following the surgery to check in; and he prepared me for the pre and post experience so that there were no surprises. Scheduling follow up appointments has been easy and convenient. I appreciate the professionalism of the staff and the expert care provided by Dr. Serlo.

Patient Review By Michelle H

I called and got a consultation for my wisdom teeth in the same day! So convenient. Other places it would’ve been 2 weeks just to speak to someone. A week after the consult I went in for the extraction of my wisdom teeth. The assistant was so calming not once did I feel like a patient I felt more like a guest. All my concerns were taken seriously and attended to. How awesome! Great bedside manners and Dr. Serlo was so fast but not rushed just very efficient. I’m glad I didn’t get fully sedated because as well of a job as they did I didn’t need it! If you are questioning where to go for any oral surgery look no further!
