Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth that manage to erupt without any problems don’t need to be removed. However, in many cases, the mouth is just too small to accommodate any more teeth, and as a result, the wisdom teeth end up causing pain and inconvenience. We can identify problematic wisdom teeth and then remove them via surgery to stop the pain that they’re causing. Call us if anyone in your family has been experiencing jaw pain and is around the age where wisdom teeth usually come in.
Many people who are planning to undergo dental implant surgery will first need to complete a bone grafting procedure. The grafting material is applied to parts of the jaw where bone tissue has broken down, encouraging the body to create new bone tissue in that area. Thus, when we’re ready to begin the implant surgery, there will be plenty of bone for the post to join with. The graft material can be taken from your own body or from a donor based on your needs.
The sinus cavity is located close to your upper back teeth, and consequently, they might get in the way of dental implant surgery in that area, especially if bone loss has occurred. A sinus lift is a procedure that corrects two problems at once: it restores lost bone tissue, and it moves the sinus cavity away from the surgical area.
Surgical Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction doesn’t always require surgery. Sometimes it’s as simple as loosening the tooth and gently pulling it free. However, you may need a surgical extraction if the tooth is impacted (meaning it has completely failed to break through the gum tissue) or if it has broken off to a point where it can’t be removed with conventional methods. After an efficient extraction, we can also help you with the step of replacing it.
