Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.
Our wisdom teeth are not the only ones that can create problems. Teeth can become impacted or infected for a variety of reasons. Our specialists may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate painful symptoms or other issues after alternative treatments have been exhausted.
Leukocyte Platelet-Rich Fibrin (LPRF) is a relatively new approach to tissue regeneration. LPRF allows us to take advantage of the healing properties in your blood by isolating the growth platelets. This makes it immensely beneficial following a bone graft. It can also be an excellent tool for the regeneration of soft tissues.
Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, can be used to address some minor or major irregularities in the jaw. Your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is one of the most complex and fragile joints in the body. Problems with your TMJ can prevent you from using your jaw properly while yawning, speaking, and eating. Orthognathic surgery can help correct problems with your TMJ and alleviate painful symptoms.
Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and study of problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. The goal of oral pathology is to cure oral diseases with causes that are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact causes of a problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan.
If you experience facial trauma be sure to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Injury or trauma to the face can result in serious problems for your oral health. If one of your teeth becomes loose or knocked out, you may need oral surgery.
