Oral Surgery Procedures Offered at Our Office
Our Oral Surgery treatments include:
It is usually preferable to save a tooth through root canal therapy if possible, but sometimes the tooth is too damaged and it is best to extract it. If the tooth is impacted in the gumline (particularly common with wisdom teeth), if there are serious crowding issues, or if the tooth is too damaged, rotted, or loose to be saved with root canal treatment, our doctors may determine that extraction is the best option.
Many dentists do not offer extractions, but they can become necessary if teeth are overcrowded or misaligned. This process does not have to be extremely painful or long and drawn out. We take care of the extractions in a quick method that minimizes discomfort. After the recovery period is over, it will be time to begin taking the prosthodontic or orthodontic steps needed to fill in your smile.
Some people are lucky enough to have enough room for their wisdom teeth to grow in correctly, while others simply don’t get wisdom teeth in the first place. For those who do have some or all of their wisdom teeth but their jaws don’t have space for them, we may recommend extraction.
If your wisdom teeth have been bothering you, it may be time to take them out. Even if you haven’t felt them coming in, we’re able to spot troubled wisdom teeth in our digital X-rays. The best thing you can do is extract the teeth before they cause more damage to your mouth.
At The Dental Office at Chestnut Hill, we take extra care to make sure that our adult patients are comfortable and anxiety-free. After a consultation, we will recommend that you continue with your wisdom teeth until intervention is absolutely necessary. When it is necessary to remove your wisdom teeth, The doctor will recommend simple and pain-free surgery. Your health is our highest concern.
In conjunction with our oral surgery procedures, we practice oral pathology, or the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the teeth, gums, bones, and joints around the mouth. As dental health professionals, we are on the front lines when it comes to spotting the signs of conditions like oral thrush, black hairy tongue, and oral cancer. Particularly in the case of the latter, early diagnosis and treatment are essential.
