Most people go through oral surgery at some point in their lives. While the concept of “surgery” may be off-putting, there are many simple procedures in dentistry which are considered surgical. Premier Care Dental Group in Pasadena is glad to have some of the most experienced dental surgeons on our team, so you know your smile is in good hands.
- Wisdom tooth extraction is probably the most familiar form of oral surgery. There are four permanent adult teeth which come in during late adolescence and often do not have room to grow in the jaw. These teeth may be removed before they come in, or after they have already appeared. Sometimes, they will be impacted and require special attention, because growing at an angle to the other teeth can cause pain, misalignment, and gum disease. Removing wisdom teeth is a very important step in oral health for most adults.
- Another common but crucial component in overall oral health is dental implants. These implants may replace a tooth which has broken or decayed. Small metal posts are implanted into the gums to replace damaged roots, and replacement teeth, which are shaped like the original tooth, are fitted onto these posts. Your teeth will not only be perfectly matched to your mouth, but the implants will beautify your smile.
- Sometimes, if gum disease or an accident damages the jaw bone, you may need a bone graft. Premier Care Dental Group’s expert dentists have the skill to reduce your recovery time. We also work with high quality providers of bone grafts and dental implants to get your mouth healthy and happy as fast as possible.
