Replacing Missing Teeth
Once an extraction is completed, often the best option is to replace the missing tooth with a dental implant. The loss of the tooth can result in diminished bone in the jaw, which is prevented by the placement of an implant that stimulates healthy bone. The tooth placed on top of the post is secure and permanent, and it comes up through the gums just like a real tooth. Filling the gap prevents shifting of other teeth and resultant difficulties with chewing, talking, and altered appearance.
In-House Gum Grafting
Some patients have receding gums due to gum disease, genetics, or even overly aggressive brushing. We can resolve this issue by performing gum grafting surgery right here in our office. Besides improving the overall appearance of your smile, this procedure can protect exposed tooth roots, which may decrease sensitivity. It has also been known to reduce cavity risk and the risk of gum disease (periodontal disease). Not having to refer you to another office saves you time and money!
Faster Healing – Naturally
Dr. Adly is excited to offer his implant and oral surgery patients an option called L-PRF™ (Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin) that naturally promotes faster healing. There are no additives of any kind, only a special process that uses only a small blood sample directly from you. It uses your own power to heal, just like when you scrape a knee. The special IntraSpin™ System is a centrifuge that separates important elements of your own blood – with NO chemical alteration and nothing added – and enables them to stimulate the healing process. When applied to the implant or surgical site, their healing ability significantly reduces your recovery time and helps you achieve your beautiful new smile faster!
In-House Tooth Extractions
In the unfortunate situation where a tooth is too damaged or infected to be saved, extraction is the best option. We can do most extractions in our office, to avoid the inconvenience of referral to another office. Our compassionate manner and gentle touch will make you feel comfortable in our care for this treatment.
Third Molar Extractions
Third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, develop later than other adult teeth, usually between 17 and 25. These teeth are located at the very back of the mouth, often causing impaction if they don’t fit in the arch of the upper or lower jaw. Impaction does not allow the tooth to grow straight up; instead, it becomes enclosed in the jawbone. This can create a range of problems, as they push and crowd other teeth, making them grow in improperly. Cavities easily develop as they are difficult to keep clean. Infection can even occur in the jawbone. The best solution is to have them removed as soon as they develop, before these problems and the density of the jawbone increase, making it more difficult to extract them.
