Some dental issues, such as problematic wisdom teeth or degenerated jawbone, may require oral surgery. You’re in good hands at West Broward Dental Associates, and we provide compassionate care every step of the way.
Sometimes, wisdom teeth grow in at an angle through the gum line or they are impacted and unable to erupt from the gum. This can cause a great deal of pain, serious damage to the surrounding teeth and the jaw, and can also create a space for bacteria to grow.
In these instances, it is best to remove wisdom teeth in order to protect the rest of your mouth and avoid complications down the road. Our medical professionals will assess your situation and extract any impacted or problematic wisdom teeth that may be causing you pain.
Whether you have wisdom teeth that are impacting the rest of your mouth, a damaged tooth that must be removed, or an infected or decaying tooth, a tooth extraction may be necessary.
Tooth extractions are a relatively simple, low-risk procedure, and they are very commonplace in general dentistry practices. Depending on your preferences and needs, you will be treated with either a local or general anesthetic. Regardless of the method you choose, a routine tooth extraction should take about 20-40 minutes.
Extraction Site Preservation
When approaching a tooth extraction, it is crucial to consider the tooth that will be removed as well as the space it will leave behind. It is important to have a treatment plan for the extraction site, because this remaining space will cause the jaw to change shape.
Call us today to discuss your options before having your tooth removed. We will offer honest advice on the best course of action and can help create a treatment plan that works best for you, whether it involves a dental implant, bridge, or bone grafting.
Bone grafting is a very common oral surgery procedure, and is used quite often for dental implants, as well as in other periodontal procedures. The process involves rebuilding a degenerated jawbone to fix a dental implant or other restoration device. Bones are taken from elsewhere in the body and grafted into the jaw to create a new, strong bone that will keep an implant stable and secure.
At West Broward Dental Associates, we’ll offer honest, compassionate care when you’re in need of an extraction or grafting. Call us at 954-975-7900 to schedule an appointment or stop by our office for a consultation.
