Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that erupt between the ages of 15 to 25. While some wisdom teeth come in without any issues, it’s not uncommon for them to cause some trouble. If that’s the case, we can perform gentle wisdom tooth removal to restore your oral health and protect your existing teeth.
Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal
While reasons for wisdom teeth removal vary on a case-by-case basis, there are some common issues that can arise when wisdom teeth erupt. Here are some of the most common issues that can arise when wisdom teeth erupt. Wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are:
- Impacted (Stuck Under Gums)
- Changing Bite Alignment
- Crowding Existing Teeth
- Coming in at an Angle
- Putting Pressure on Existing Teeth
Bone grafts are used to help patients regain lost bone density in their jaws. One of the most common contributing factors to deterioration of the jawbone is tooth loss. Teeth stimulate the jawbone which in turn helps it stay strong. When those teeth are gone, the jawbone is no longer stimulated resulting in a decrease in its density. Bone grafting surgery is often required for patients that have been missing teeth for quite some time and want to get dental implants. Dental implants need a solid, secure foundation that can support the post and the tooth restoration. Bone grafts can restore the health of the jawbone in order for a patient to move forward with their dental implant placement. After a patient heals from their bone grafting surgery, we can safely and effectively place their dental implant posts!
