Wisdom Teeth Removal / Extraction

What is wisdom tooth removal/Extractional

Wisdom teeth removal surgery is typically considered for wisdom teeth that are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can come in at odd angles, are difficult to clean, and may cause irritation to other teeth near the jawbone or sinus cavities. Not everyone needs them out; most will not need a procedure if there is enough room in the mouth.

You need to get your wisdom teeth removed because they are bothering your bite and will cause you serious problems if they are not removed. More than 500,000 wisdom teeth extractions are performed in the U.S. alone. According to a study conducted for the CDC, 96% of children were not completely free from their wisdom teeth until age 18, and more than 50% didn't have all of their wisdom teeth removed until age 20.

Wisdom teeth removal/extraction is a surgical procedure that is needed when there are too many or too crowded teeth in the mouth.

What is the extraction procedure

Wisdom tooth extraction is relatively simple at most dental offices. It is a typical procedure that's done under anesthesia with the patient completely unconscious. Your mouth will be numbed and an oral surgeon will remove the teeth that are causing issues, typically with forceps and a drill that turns around the tooth, then removes a portion of it. The process can be uncomfortable and can cause swelling, bleeding, and pain after surgery.

The IV sedation dentistry dentist will be your partner in providing a comfortable and safe experience.

What are the risks associated with wisdom teeth removal

Infection is the most common complication associated with wisdom teeth oral surgery. There will be some pain and swelling after the procedure, but antibiotics can help prevent an infection from developing. The procedure is not associated with many risks, and the side effects are typically minor. In many cases, there will be no significant pain at all after the teeth have been removed, and there won't be any discomfort with eating or drinking.


Will there be an aftercare plan?

There will be an aftercare plan for this procedure. Your dentist or surgeon will take a good look at the oral cavity before and after the surgery to ensure that all of your tooth roots have been successfully debrided (scraped away).


Why do you need to remove the wisdom teeth

Wisdom tooth extraction is often necessary to prevent the onset of wisdom teeth problems. Wisdom teeth can develop in very crowded areas, which can lead to further complications down the line. The pain and pressure that wisdom teeth cause can slow down growth and development of the mouth, jaw, and facial bone structure.

Unlike most other developed countries, wisdom tooth removal in the United States is considered routine treatment by most dentists.

What are dental implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that act as tooth root substitutes. Implants fuse with the surrounding bone and serve as anchors for replacement teeth or a dental bridge.

What are zygomatic dental implants

The zygomatic dental implant is actually a dental implant that has been modified to fit the patient's facial profile in a manner that mimics the foundational structure of the zygomatic bone, which provides support for many facial features.

The zygomatic implant is made of titanium, and it is inserted into the patient's jawbone during surgery.

Regular dental implants vs zygomatic dental implants

Regular dental implants are placed in the upper jaw; with zygomatic implants, the implant is placed on the side of the face, below the cheekbone.

Furthermore, zygomatic implants are placed in an area that is more visible than regular implant sites.

Dental content and IV sedation

When you’re scheduling a dental appointment, you may notice that there are two options for anesthesia – IV sedation or general anesthesia. You may be wondering what the difference is between the two and which one is best for you. The benefits of IV sedation include:

IV Sedation Dentistry can be used in combination with local sedation or nitrous oxide to provide more relaxed and comfortable procedures.

Dental content - facial cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers

What is facial cosmetic injectables

Facelifts and other cosmetic procedures can be costly, but there are ways to get the results you want at a lower price. Plastic surgeons use injectable fillers to help improve facial appearance and fullness.

What is dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that focuses on injecting collagen into the skin. One of the most common dermal filler substances is hyaluronic acid.

Dermal fillers are used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles. They can be used as alternative methods to fill out the cheeks, lips, and jawline.

You need to get dermal fillers because your skin will continue to lose collagen throughout life. This can make your face look sunken, thin and lined. In addition, as you age, the fat in your face tends to be less prominent.

Dermal fillers can be used on the lips to enhance their shape and size. They can also be used to increase the volume of the cheeks or jawline.

Dermal filler injections are a simple procedure that involves very little discomfort (if any).

Risks of facial fillers

The risks of facial filler injections are very low, but there are some concerns that you should be aware of. When administered by a trained professional, dermal fillers are safe for almost everyone.

Botox Cosmetic Procedure

Botox is a neurotoxin that paralyzes smooth muscle in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines.

When the FDA approved Botox, it was strictly for use by doctors who specialize in neuromodulation. Today, it’s available for purchase over-the-counter (OTC) anywhere there are pharmacies.

What Is Kybella

Kybella is a dermal filler used to treat volume loss. The FDA has approved this filler for treating both nasolabial folds and buccal fat injections.

Kybella is injected into the lower face, which stimulates production of collagen in the dermis. By doing this, Kybella can be used to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. This can help to improve one’s profile and facial features.
