Tooth Extraction

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, we will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other dental treatment. But when there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be extracted — or removed — from its socket in the bone.

Simple Extraction

This procedure is on a tooth that can be seen in the mouth. For a simple extraction, we loosen the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. Then the dentist uses forceps to remove the tooth.

Surgical Extraction

This is a more complex procedure, which is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not erupted in the mouth. We will make a small incision into your gum to surgically remove the broken tooth or impacted wisdom tooth.

Dental Implants

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jaw bone beneath your gums to replace the missing teeth.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved appearance Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved speech With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier eating Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved oral health Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Durability Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

HOW SUCCESSFUL ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.

Bone grafting for deficient jaws

For those who are missing teeth, a dental implant is the best option.
A dental implant basically has two pieces: a metal cylinder that is placed into the jaw bone and functions like the root of the tooth, and an abutment that screws into the first piece. A crown is then placed on the abutment, creating the appearance of a tooth.

If the jaw bone is too thin or soft to keep the implant in place in its current state and bone graft may be required.

In a bone graft procedure, we will take a section of bone from another area of your body, or use a special bone grafting material (which is common), and graft it onto your jaw bone. You will then have to wait, most likely several months, while the graft creates enough new, strong bone to make sure that the implant will be stable and secure. It is possible if you only need a minor graft that the procedure might be able to be done at the same time as the implant surgery. A successful bone graft allows your jaw bone to be strong enough to support your dental implant. Once the bone graft is complete, the rest of the implant surgery can proceed.

Orthognathic or Corrective Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw or orthognathic surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) to correct a wide range of minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of jaws and teeth. Surgery can improve chewing, speaking and breathing. While the patient’s appearance may be dramatically enhanced as a result of their surgery, orthognathic surgery is performed to correct functional problems.

Some of the bone in the upper tooth-bearing portion of the jaw is removed. The upper jaw is then secured in position with plates and screws.

The bone in the rear portion of the jaw is separated from the front portion and modified so that the tooth-bearing portion of the lower jaw can be moved back for proper alignment.

The bone in the lower portion of the jaw is separated from its base and modified. The tooth-bearing portion of the lower jaw and a portion of the chin are repositioned forward.

Broken or Dislocated Jaw

A broken or dislocated jaw is an injury to one or both of the joints that connect your lower jawbone to the skull. Each of these joints is called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ can break, crack, or become unhinged from the skull. The unhinging of the jaw joint is known as a dislocation. A broken, fractured, or dislocated jaw can create problems with eating and breathing.

Treatment for Jaw Injuries

If you injure your jaw, it will most likely be treated as an emergency. While waiting for medical care, support your lower jaw to help stabilize it and keep your airway open.

Treating a dislocated jaw

A dentist must manipulate a dislocated jaw back into the correct position. Sometimes your dentist can do this manually. You’ll receive local anesthetics and muscle relaxants to minimize the pain and to help your jaw muscles loosen up enough to allow the manipulation. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to set the TMJ back into the normal position.

Treating a broken jaw

Treatment for a jaw fracture or break might also require surgery, depending on the extent of the injury. Clean breaks may heal on their own while your jaw is immobilized. Multiple fractures of the jawbone or displaced breaks in the part of the bone that’s pushed off to one side may require surgical repair.

Wiring your jaw shut

Broken and dislocated jaws are bandaged or wired shut during recovery.

Your dentist may treat your dislocation and minor fracture simply by wrapping a bandage around your head and under your chin to keep you from opening your jaw wide. Anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen and naproxen can dull the pain and reduce swelling.

Severe breaks might require wiring to promote healing. Wires and elastic bands keep your jaw closed and your bite in place. Keep a pair of scissors or wire cutters in your home during your recovery. The tools will allow you to open the wires if you experience vomiting or choking. If the wires need to be cut, notify your dentist so they can replace the wires as soon as possible.

Recovery from a jaw fracture or dislocation requires patience. You won’t be able to open your jaw very wide or at all for at least six weeks during treatment. Your dentist will prescribe painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infection. You’ll also be on a liquid diet to provide you with nutrition during this time while you’re unable to chew solid food.
