If you need a surgical tooth extraction, rest easy. Allenwood Dental is here to perform as painless of surgery as possible, helping you move forward with improved dental health and comfort. Though few know it, surgical tooth extractions are some of the most common surgical procedures in the United States. In certain instances, it is even possible for the dentist to remove a tooth with forceps. However, other cases require comparably complex surgical extraction. Such extraction is necessary when the tooth is broken or stuck within the gum line.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
In some cases, wisdom teeth must be removed simply because the jaw lacks the space necessary for the tooth to emerge. This insufficient room is the result of dietary intake lacking the nutrients necessary for jaws to develop as they should. This is precisely why many patients require wisdom tooth extraction.
Soft Tissue Surgeries
Soft tissue surgery might be necessary if the gum tissue health is inadequate. Intraoral soft tissue surgeries are sometimes necessary for the placement of bridges, dentures, and veneers. Some such procedures require soft tissue grafts, procedures that lengthen crowns, and the reshaping of gum tissue.
Three-dimensional and Two-dimensional Imaging and CT Scans
Dentists use special x-ray equipment to generate three-dimensional pictures of the teeth, nerve pathways, bone, and soft tissues in one scan. Such advanced x-ray equipment is used for orthodontic treatment planning, the positioning of dental implants, surgical planning for teeth that have been impacted, TMJ diagnoses and even gauging bone structure/tooth orientation.
Nitrous oxide is a sedative agent combined with oxygen for inhalation through a mask positioned over the nose to ensure the patient remains completely relaxed. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous is particularly helpful for patients who fear dental procedures.
