Whether erupted or impacted, the removal of wisdom teeth is more difficult than other teeth because they are the furthest back in the mouth. Understanding the extra complications to these teeth, let us help make your experience less worrisome, less painful, and more relieving.

Bone Grafting

Aimed to increase the density and volume of the jawbone, This minor surgical procedure is done with a small incision and used because bone loss has occurred.

As there are several options to how the bone is grafted, each patient an each tooth is unique. Although this surgery commonly accompanies dental implants, we address each case individually to provide an overall success.

Oral Pathology

Joint Injection

TMD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction) can be caused by a variety of factors. One of the most common is clenching or grinding your teeth. Injuries or arthritis can also lead to issues. In some cases steroids can be injected directly into the joints to reduce inflammation. 

Incision & Drainage

Commonly referred to as an I&D procedure, this technique is used to relieve pressure and release toxins from an infected area. Minimally invasive and usually taking less than thirty minutes, we are knowledgeable and confident in performing this to get you on the path to recovery quickly.

Alveoloplasty

 Named after the alveolar bone, this pre-prosthetics procedure prepares the mouth for dentures or implants. We reshape the contours of the mouth to improve the condition and provide better retention and stability of the prosthetic. It can include removal of teeth, bone grafting, or restructuring of the jawbone but every detail will be reviewed with the patient before any decisions are final.

Frenectomy

A quite common procedure that is performed on all ages, this is the removal of a frenulum which is a small piece of tissue. In our case, it would be one of two: the labial frenectomy which is inside the middle of the upper lip; or the lingual frenectomy which is under the tongue. We are experienced with both and will do our utmost to ensure other options are considered before surgery is recommended.
