Wisdom Tooth Removal
The wisdom teeth grow in the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through. Most people have four wisdom teeth – one in each corner.
Wisdom teeth usually develop through the gums during late teens or early twenties. At this point, the other 28 adult teeth are usually in place, so there is not always enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly.
Due to lack of space, wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. The wisdom teeth that grow through like this are known as Impacted.
At Quality Dental care, we have a good experience in oral and maxillofacial surgery that can assess, support and manage everything from anesthesia and surgical methods to postoperative care and instructions.
Extraction means having a removed tooth, usually due to illness, trauma or congestion.
If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After extraction, your dentist will advise you on the post-extraction treatment to follow. In most cases, a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill the bone where the root of the tooth has been through the formation of a blood clot.
We have experienced and well-trained oral surgeons. We remove everything about your dental extraction as pre, during and after surgery.
An impacted tooth simply means that it is stuck and can not get into a function. Patients frequently develop problems with the third molar teeth (wisdom) affected. These teeth are trapped in the back of the jaw and can develop painful infections among a host of other problems (see Wisdom Teeth Affected by Procedures). Since there is rarely the functional requirement for wisdom teeth, they are normally removed if they develop problems.
The maxillary canine (cuspidor upper my phone) is the second most common tooth to be affected. The canine tooth is a critical tooth in the dental arch and plays an important role in your bite. The canine teeth are very strong biting teeth and have the longest roots of all human teeth. They had signified to be the first teeth that touch at the jaws come nearer since that they guide the rest of the teeth into the proper bite.
Normally, maxillary canine teeth are the last of the front teeth to burst into place. They usually come into place around 13 years and make any space left between the upper teeth before closing tightly together. If a canine tooth is touched, every effort is made to get it to erupt in its correct position in the dental arch.
The techniques involved in helping the rash can be applied to any affected tooth in the upper or lower jaw, but most commonly they have applied to the teeth of the maxillary canine (upper eye). Sixty percent of these affected dogs are found on the palatal side (roof of the mouth) of the dental arch. The rest of the affected canines are in the middle of the supporting bone but glued in a raised position above the roots of the adjacent teeth or off the facial side of the dental arch.
A bone graft is a surgical procedure used to correct bone or joint problems. Bone grafting, or bone tissue transplantation, is beneficial in fixing bones that are damaged by trauma, or joint problems. It is also useful for bone growth around an implanted device, such as a total knee replacement. A bone graft may fill a void where a bone is absent or help to ensure structural stability.
The bone used in a bone graft may come from your body, a donor, or it can be entirely artificial. The bone graft can provide a framework where new living bones can grow if it is accepted by the body.
Preparing your mouth before placing a prosthesis (or prosthesis) is called pre-prosthetic surgery. Some patients require minor oral surgery before receiving a partial or complete denture to ensure maximum comfort. A prosthesis is found on the crest of the bone, so it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size.
One of the many procedures may be necessary to prepare your mouth for a prosthesis, including smoothing and bone remodeling, elimination of excess bone and/or elimination of excess gum tissue. Our surgeons will work with your repair dentist to ensure that your prosthesis is properly adjusted once delivered.
Do you have a child who is born with a birth defect, such as cleft lip-palate? Are you a woman who has undergone a mastectomy? Or, maybe you have suffered a traumatic injury or illness that has permanently affected a part of your body that you want to be fixed.
Reconstructive surgery may aid repair the part of the body affected by these problems.
Sinus lift procedure
The key to successful implants is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant should be placed. The upper back jaw is traditionally one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quality and quantity and proximity to the sinus. If you have lost bones in this area due to reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss, one can be left without sufficient bone to place the implants.
Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sine floor and developing bones for placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow the formation of new bones. In a common technique, an incision is made to expose the bone. Then a small circle is cut into the bone. This bone piece is lifted into the sinus cavity, just like a trapdoor, and space below is filled with bone graft material. Your periodontist may explain your options for graft materials, which can regenerate lost bones and tissue.
The bone of the alveolar ridge is a special type of bone surrounding and supporting the teeth. When a tooth has been removed, this bone begins to deteriorate. It may also lose density due to natural degradation of age, or disease.
The expansion of the crest is achieved when the jaw is not wide enough or high enough to support the implants. The bone crest of the jaw is increased by dividing the bone with surgical instruments. The bone graft material is inserted & allowed to heal ahead placing your implant. In few cases, the implant has placed at the ridge is split.
Surgery is usually performed in the office surgical suite under IV sedation or general anesthesia.
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMT) acts as a sliding hinge, connecting your jaw to your skull. You have a joint on either side of your jaw. TMJ disorders – a type of temporomandibular or TMD disorder – can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control the movement of the jaw.
The exact cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often difficult to manage. Your pain might be because to a mixture of circumstances, like genetics, arthritis or jaw. Some people who have jaw pain also tend to squeeze or grind their teeth, although many people usually squeeze or grind their teeth & never happen TMJ diseases.
In most of the cases, the pain and distress connected with TMJ disorders are temporary and can be relieved by self-care or non-surgical treatments. Surgery is usually the last resort after conservative measures have failed, but some people with TMJ disorders can benefit from surgical treatments.
Orthognathic surgery refers to “straightening the jaw using surgery” [ortho-straight, gnathic (s)]. While orthodontic treatment corrects the position of the teeth, orthognathic surgery places the bones of a jaws (maxilla or mandible). One or both jaws can be surgically replaced during an operation. This includes making cuts (osteotomies) in the bones and moving the cut segments into their predetermined position under general anesthesia. Surgery is normally preceded by a period of orthodontic treatment so that post-operative teeth & bones will be in their right place. At Last, the small period of orthodontic treatment has usually required to achieve the alignment of the teeth.
Any surgery involves potential risks. With orthognathic surgery, major risks include bleeding; Inadequate blood supply to the segments of the osteotomized jaw; infection; Adverse bone cuts / cracks; Permanent numbness / tingling of the lips, cheeks and / or teeth; Poor positioning of the jaws / segments; Joint problems of the jaw; And damage to the teeth. Your surgeon will discuss this with you in more detail during your consultation appointments in the rooms.
A positive approach is extremely important before and after jaw surgery. Various studies support the fact that positive thinking can help the body during the healing process. Supporting your family in the days and weeks following your surgery will also help your recovery.
