Wisdom Teeth Removal

These roots fuse into the bone and secure the replacement teeth in place. After an implant, the teeth can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth.

Oral Surgery Done in the Office

The amazing advances in technology, sedation techniques, and environment means that most oral surgery can be completed in the office of Board certified orthodontists and periodontists. These dental professionals, such as Dr. Alexandre Aalam, are experts in oral surgery. Dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, and restoring the jaw or mouth after trauma no longer have to done in a hospital under a general anesthetic. This drastically reduces costs, treatment time, and risks of infection.

Wisdom Teeth

The third set of molars typically emerge during late teens or early twenties. Most people experience no problems during this event. Some experience pain, swelling, and damage to other teeth and the bite. This occurs when those teeth are impacted, partially erupted, or do not fit into the space at the back of the mouth. Surgical intervention is necessary.

State-of-the-art equipment and procedures make it possible for the surgery to be done, and common complications addressed, in an office. IV sedation replaces general anesthetic so patients are relaxed but not asleep. They can answer questions and experience shorter treatment times. A platelet-rich substance derived from the blood of the patient is used to prevent dry socket and expedite healing.

Benefits of Implants

Implants are artificial roots placed into the jaw. They are a permanent solution for a missing tooth or teeth, a dental bridge, or dentures. These roots fuse into the bone and secure the replacement teeth in place. After an implant, the teeth can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth.

Bridges and dentures do not have to be taken out of the mouth once secured with implants. For wearers, this means spending no money on cleaners, adhesives, and re-alignment every few years. Bone loss is minimal, it is easier to chew and speak, and full confidence is restored. Nothing gets caught between the roof of the mouth and the denture plate, which alleviates pain.

Restorations

The trauma of having teeth knocked out in an accident, a sports incident, or workplace incident is compounded when a hospital stay overnight is required for reconstruction surgery. Implants, removal of foreign objects from the gum deep cleaning the area, and assessing the other teeth can all be completed in the office. There will be less anxiety, less pain, and less costs. It is more convenient, takes much less time, and more comfortable when these services are done in a familiar environment.
