Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The most common oral surgery required by most adults is the extraction of wisdom teeth. When your wisdom teeth grow in, usually in your late teens or early twenties, they can cause a variety of different problems with your oral health. Because of this, most dentists recommend that they be removed.
The extraction process is quite simple. First, the treatment site will be numbed to ensure that you stay comfortable during the process. Dr. Niaz Ahmed will clean the area and then make a small incision in the gum tissue, providing access to the root of the tooth. Then, a specialized dental tool is used to “grab” the tooth by the root, and remove it from the socket.
Next, the area will be cleaned again to prevent infection, and sutures may be used to close the tissue and complete the procedure. Follow Dr. Ahmed’s care and recovery instructions, and you’ll be back to normal within just a day or two!
Dr. Ahmed also specializes in removing impacted wisdom teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth are teeth that fail to fully emerge from the gum line, becoming trapped (impacted) between the jawbone and the gum tissue. This often causes serious pain and infection, and can damage the nearby teeth and gums. If you have problematic wisdom teeth, give us a call today to schedule a consultation.
Dental implants are also a common type of oral surgery. Implants use a two-part design to restore missing teeth, and replace them with a permanent, natural-looking prosthetic.
To start the dental implant process, Dr. Ahmed will make an incision in your gum line. Then, a screw-shaped dental implant (also called a “post” or “rod”) made out of titanium is implanted into your gum and jaw.
Over a period of 3-6 months, this implant heals, and bonds permanently with the surrounding gum and jaw tissue. By doing so, it functions as an artificial “root”. During this time, a dental crown is made of porcelain to perfectly match your existing teeth.
After the implant has healed, this crown will be attached permanently to the dental implant with an advanced adhesive. The result is a natural-looking and natural-feeling tooth that requires no special care precautions, and can easily last more than 30 years.
