Wisdom Tooth Removal (3rd Molars)
A wisdom tooth that is deemed problematic is normally extracted to avoid any oral complications. To have a wisdom tooth removed, a small incision is made to open up the gum tissue over the tooth and remove any bone that is covering the tooth. Once the tooth is in view, it is grasped with a dental instrument, known as a forcep, and gently rocked back and forth to loosen it from the jaw bone and surrounding ligaments. Sometimes the tooth may need to be cut into smaller pieces to make it easier for removal. Stitches may be necessary after the removal of a wisdom tooth.
An impacted tooth is a tooth that fails to fully pass through the gums.
Impacted wisdom and cuspid (or canine) teeth are fairly common. To correct impacted teeth, there are a few treatment options. For impacted wisdom teeth, the most common procedure is extraction. For impacted canine teeth, several treatment modalities are available. Orthodontics (braces) can be used to open space for proper eruption. Primary (baby) teeth can either be extracted or surgically exposed to allow for the placement of an orthodontic bracket to help align the teeth.
Dental implants are used to replace tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. Dental implants are small anchors made of biocompatible metal, called titanium, placed in the jawbone. The anchors begin to fuse with the bone over a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, abutment posts are inserted into the anchors to allow for the attachment of the replacement teeth. To fabricate the replacement teeth, an impression is taken and a model of the bite is created. The replacement teeth are based on this model. Replacement teeth can either be crowns, bridges or dentures.
Full Mouth Restoration
Do you have many missing or failing teeth? Do you hate your dentures? Are you ready for a permanent solution? Do you want beautiful new teeth in just ONE day? Call today to schedule a consultation with one of our oral surgeons to discuss your Full Mouth Restoration.
Our Full Mouth Restoration is a unique dental implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace with a new set of permanent teeth, using dental implants as “anchors”. Easy to care for, your Full Mouth Restoration can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth, and stays fixed in place. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with removable dentures.
On the day of your scheduled surgery, you can leave our office the same day with a beautiful Full Mouth Restoration, reducing both overall cost and healing time compared to single dental implants.
