Dental surgery is a complex field in which there are a great number of surgical procedures that are used to take care of your dental health. The type of surgery you need will depend on your overall dental health and the condition of your teeth. Your dentist will choose a procedure that suits your specific needs. Impacted teeth and tooth loss are both conditions that often need to be repaired with dental surgery. In certain cases, oral surgery can be completed in one day. For more intricate procedures, you may need to return for subsequent visits.
Our skilled surgeons can perform different routine procedures as well as highly complex procedures. Whether you need to get dental implants or if you need to have teeth surgically extracted, our team at Markham Smile Center are always happy to help you.
Dental implants are an effective solution when you have lost a tooth or many teeth due to injury or perhaps infection. They can serve as an optional alternative if dentures or dental bridges are not quite what you need. The implants are anchored into your jaw bone during surgery and they function primarily as substitutes for tooth roots. Dental implants are also useful to stabilize your new artificial teeth which are attached to them.
Surgical tooth extractions tend to be a little more complicated than your usual tooth extractions. These extractions are most often reserved to extract teeth that have not yet broken through the gums. A small incision is made in the gum line during the procedure. The oral surgeon will choose a sedation method to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for the patient.
Your wisdom teeth erupt into your oral cavity much later than your other teeth. In fact, they are usually the last to arrive. When your wisdom teeth align properly and your gum tissue stays healthy, you don’t have to get them removed. Generally, this is not the case. Extraction becomes necessary when they have trouble erupting. Impacted teeth can grow unpredictably into all directions as they seek for the path through which they are meant to erupt successfully.
The thing is that when your wisdom teeth erupted only partially an opening forms around the tooth which can make it more susceptible to infection. The resultant infection can cause swelling, pain and other symptoms. The pressure created by a partial eruption can push your other teeth out of place and this can eventually affect the alignment of your natural smile. By getting an impacted tooth removed, you can take care of the issue and early removal is generally recommended as a preventative measure.
