Wisdom Tooth Extractions
While wisdom teeth can be a healthy part of anyone’s smile if they align properly and have adequate space to emerge, this isn’t the case for many patients. Most modern jaws simply don’t contain enough extra room for their late arrival, which can lead to partial or full entrapment in the jawbone. They may even grow sideways! In order to protect patients from the threat of infection and oral pain, our team will closely monitor the development of wisdom teeth in children and teenagers and recommend extraction if needed.
Multiple Tooth Extractions
We strive to help patients make the transition from failing teeth to a sturdy and reliable denture as smoothly as possible. Our team will effectively manage discomfort throughout the extraction process with sedation dentistry and other calming techniques. Please keep in mind that oral bleeding, swelling, elevated temperature, and a sore throat are likely to occur in the following days after surgery. We will provide detailed guidelines on how to best manage these post-operative symptoms until they dissipate.
Extraction Site Preservation
When teeth are extracted from the mouth, jawbone shrinkage is a harmful consequence. As a result, replenishing a patient’s smile with dental implants may become tricky or even impossible over time. Thankfully, our in-house periodontist Dr. Prokopets has the solution: extraction site preservation. This advanced technique involves the placement of bone grafting materials into the extraction site, helping us minimize deterioration over time for more predictable and healthy improvements.
