Before recommending an implant surgery, our dentists perform a thorough oral examination using X-rays or 3D imaging to determine the health and stability of your jawbone. You will be under anesthesia while undergoing implant surgery. If necessary, the surgery will begin with the removal of the damaged tooth. The dentist makes cuts in your gum to expose the bone, drills holes on the jawbone, and places the titanium posts. Once the implants are in place, the healing process begins, and the implant integrates with the jawbone. The dentist may attach the abutment at the time of implant surgery or wait until you recover.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the four terminal molars. Wisdom teeth grow in the mouth when a person is between 18 and 22 years. You do not need to have your wisdom teeth removed if they grow vertically and are well aligned. However, if the teeth grow horizontally or diagonally, they may cause you problems, including crowding and damaging the neighboring teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth may lead to pain, infection, and cyst formation. We provide safe surgical wisdom teeth removal services. Our dentists will put you under anesthesia at times combined with sedation to ensure you are comfortable during the surgery.
If you have severe periodontitis, you may have to undergo dental surgery. Our dentists may recommend a pocket reduction surgery, also known as flap surgery. While conducting this procedure, the dentist makes small incisions in the gum and lifts back a section of the gums. After exposing the root of your tooth, the dentist conducts effective scaling and root planing. If periodontitis has caused bone loss, our dentist will re-contour the underlying bone before suturing back the gum tissue. Other surgical treatments for gum disease are soft tissue grafts, guided tissue regeneration, and bone grafting.
A dental abscess is a build-up of pus inside the teeth or the gums. A dental abscess results from a bacterial infection, mainly in the soft pulp of the tooth. If you have a dental abscess, our dentist will incise or open up and drain the abscess. Making a small cut into the abscess allows the pus to drain out. The dentist may place a small rubber on the area to keep it open and drain it completely. If necessary, our dentist will also perform a root canal to save your tooth and eliminate the infection. If the infection is limited to the abscessed area, the dentist will recommend some antibiotics after draining the abscess.
