Doctor Valerie Martins on offering oral surgery options in a comfortable environment
As a board certified periodontist, my residency training of three years after dental school exclusively focused on dental surgery. That involved training on dental implants, on the bone structure and support of teeth, how to grow bone, how to graft tissue. And how to create a foundation to support implants. And help, really, with full-mouth reconstruction.
So, a lot of the services that I particularly provide, as well as my associates in general dentistry, may be very scary and stressful and anxiety provoking to a lot of our patients. And I personally really try to focus on creating a trusting environment where I sit with my patients, we go over the procedure in as little or as much detail as is comfortable for them. We go step-by-step of how things are going to go, what to expect. I always give a call to every patient at the end of the day to make sure that they're comfortable. They always have access to ask me questions after the fact. And it's really just creating a stress-free, calming environment. Making sure that they're always pain-free. Asking them all along the way.
Our experienced dentists place dental implants, often as part of full-mouth reconstructions. Before doing so, they must sometimes repair damage caused by bone loss or gum disease. Martins Dental Partners offers several kinds of oral surgery to get your mouth in great shape for implants. This way, you won’t need to see multiple specialists. Our Beverly oral surgery includes:
- Bone grafts to increase bone density
- Ridge augmentation to improve your jawline’s shape and strength
- Sinus lifts to boost strength in your upper jaw
Dr. Valerie Martins, a board-certified periodontist, is an implant expert. She uses cutting-edge technology like digital X-rays and cone beam computed tomography to assess your bone quality. She can advise you on which of these oral surgery procedures you may need. To find out if you need an oral surgery procedure before getting dental implants or for another reason, call 978-288-1946.

Quick comfortable care
I want to make sure that my patients, when I do surgery with them, they feel comfortable, they trust me, they know that I would never proceed with services unless they're completely comfortable, they're not feeling any pain at all, make sure that our patients have the proper local anesthetic, that they're not feeling any discomfort at all, breaks if needed to rest the jaw, and more importantly, we just are as efficient as possible to get the services completed in as little time as possible.
Oral surgery services are also sometimes necessary if teeth are too damaged to save, or to prepare you for dentures or other restorative treatments. You can also get these procedures at Martins Dental Partners:
- Gum grafts to return damaged gums to health and lessen tooth sensitivity caused by exposed roots
- Gum reduction and crown lengthening to eliminate excess gum tissue that overpowers your smile or to expose more tooth surface before treatments like dental crowns or veneers.
- Teeth extractions, including wisdom teeth removal
Sedation Keeps You Relaxed During Dental Surgery Procedures
We’ll administer local anesthesia so that you will be thoroughly numb before your oral surgery procedure begins. If you’re still concerned about discomfort, you can also get dental sedation. Unlike most general dental practices, we offer two different types of sedation: inhaled sedation (laughing gas) and oral sedation. If you’d like to focus on something other than your procedure, you can watch TV or listen to music while your dentist works.
