Reasons for Dental Extractions
When Dr. Andre Bandeira determines the tooth is non-restorable and needs to be removed, he may extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may request another visit for this procedure. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with your doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.
Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, your dentist may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth with a bridge or implant.
The Types of Oral Surgery We Offer
At Sunset Point Dental, we offer various types of oral surgeries such as:
Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Your wisdom teeth are your third molars, which are the last to develop. It is only necessary to extract wisdom teeth if they are impacted, causing crowding, or decayed. When the wisdom tooth is impacted, a surgical extraction is necessary to remove the tooth.
Surgical Tooth Extractions – Teeth may also be surgically extracted if they are severely broken down, have extremely curved roots, are impacted, or are surrounded by extra dense bone tissue.
Bone Graft/Site Preservation – A bone graft is a surgical procedure that rebuilds lost bone tissue. Patients who are wanting dental implants may need to undergo a bone graft if they do not have adequate jawbone tissue.
