Welcome to the Center for Implants & Oral Surgery in Columbus, Indiana!

The Columbus Center for Implants & Oral Surgery is a distinct practice inside the Dental Solutions of Columbus office. It is led by Dr. Gabriel Hostalet, a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery who serves patients from all over Indiana. As a certified oral surgeon, Dr. Shad Roundy is also part of the oral surgery practice. As certified oral surgeons, Dr. Hostalet and Dr. Roundy have been thoroughly trained in the full spectrum of specialty oral and maxillofacial treatments, from routine wisdom teeth removal to complex dental implant procedures. Whatever dental care you need, we want you to be able to get it here. Additionally, we have the GALILEOS 3D x-ray imaging system to make the treatment we provide more predictable with better results. This technology is superb for dental diagnostics and treatment planning, can be used for computer-guided surgery, and we can share the 3D images and information with referring doctors for follow-up care.

Thank You to Referring Doctors

Dental Implants - Columbus Center for Implants and Oral Surgery

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium post that can be surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw to serve as a replacement for the root portion of a missing tooth. Because of the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the surrounding jaw bone to become a solid anchor for the replacement tooth that goes on top of it (called a dental implant restoration). Dental implants can be used as a long-lasting solution for replacing single or multiple missing teeth, and for stabilizing dentures. If you have been referred to us by your dentist, Dr. Hostalet or Dr. Roundy will place your implant(s), then you can return to your dentist for restoration.

Implant-Anchored Dentures

An alternative to a fixed dental bridge is a removable overdenture that is anchored by dental implants. Your denture could be significantly more stable with as few as two implants, allowing you to start eating more of the foods you love again and also deriving from them the nutrition your body needs. This solution also eliminates the embarrassing social situations that can happen with a traditional denture, especially an ill-fitting one. We want you to feel at one with your teeth, and your smile will reflect how much more confident that will make you!

Wisdom Teeth Removal - Indy Dental Solutions of Columbus

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, and they grow in last, usually between ages 15 and 25. Some people are fortunate enough to have no problems with their wisdom teeth, and they keep them like their other two sets of molars. Lucky ducks! When this doesn’t happen, however, and those pesky wisdom teeth don’t come in properly, they can cause serious problems. Some wisdom teeth grow in at the wrong angle or don’t even make it that far, getting trapped or “impacted” under the gums. This can cause infection and pain. We all hate a toothache! Other wisdom teeth issues include crowding that makes other teeth start going crooked, cysts that develop on the jaw, bone loss, and damage to adjacent teeth. If you come to Dr. Hostalet or Dr. Roundy needing one or multiple wisdom teeth removed, they will explain the treatment and also talk with you about your sedation options. Your comfort is important to us.

Emergency Extractions - Columbus Center for Implants and Oral Surgery

Emergency Extractions

Extracting a tooth means removing it from the mouth. If Dr. Hostalet or Dr. Roundy can help save your natural tooth for a healthy and attractive result, they will. Some dental conditions require tooth extraction. These range from infection and pain to very advanced decay or trauma to the mouth. You can rest assured that Dr. Hostalet and Dr. Roundy strive to understand and meet your oral surgery needs, and they only recommend treatment that they feel will benefit your oral health and smile now and in the future. Dr. Hostalet or Dr. Roundy will discuss with you why the procedure is necessary, what it will entail, and what will be done following treatment to help you maintain a healthy, happy smile.

Dental Bone Grafts - Columbus Center for Implants and Oral Surgery

Bone Grafts

There are a number of reasons why patients are referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon like Dr. Hostalet or Dr. Roundy for a jaw bone graft, also called jaw reconstruction. The most common reason is to prepare and strengthen weakened bone in the jaw so it will be strong enough to receive a dental implant. If you have been missing a tooth for some time or have severe gum disease, your jaw bone will likely have weakened. Some bone mass might have been lost. A bone graft replaces missing bone and also stimulates new growth so your jaw will be able to support an implant, heal from mouth trauma, or recover from the effects of a disfiguring disease such as cancer or a congenital condition like cleft palate. Isn’t it amazing what modern dental healthcare makes possible?

Galileos X-rays - Indy Dental Solutions of Columbus

GALILEOS 3D Digital X-Rays

We’ve brought the GALILEOS 3D x-ray imaging system into our advanced oral surgery practice in Columbus, Indiana. Its digital x-ray scanner is mounted on a mechanical arm that rotates around as the scanner projects x-rays in a computer-controlled, cone-shaped beam. In seconds, all needed data is collected during one complete pass of the scanner. The detailed images can be viewed on a computer monitor in varying angles and views, including 2D, 3D, and panorama. It’s totally cool! These 3D x-rays allow us to see more of patients’ teeth, bones, tissues, nerves, and airways than ever before.

This 3D imaging technology is superb for dental diagnostics and treatment planning. We can plan out entire procedures digitally with such detail that when we perform the actual treatment, it is amazingly predictable and we can better achieve desired results. We strongly believe that complete information is a vital aspect of comprehensive dental care and oral surgery! We think the GALILEOS system is awesome, and we can’t wait to show you how it could improve your treatment experience.
