What If I Don’t Have Enough Bone for Dental Implants?

No comments

Most people with teeth loss have been feeling concerned about their looks and appearance after using dental implants for smile restoration.
According to standard treatment, dental implants are highly recommended and effective only when the patient has enough bone density.
Bone loss is one of the side effects of long term missing teeth, leaving many patients short of other alternatives.
Our professionally trained dentists suggest that dental implants can be a perfect option with the assistance of bone grafting.
Bone grafting is a process whereby the bone is added to the Jaw to improve the density, strength, and rigidity of the oral structures.
The bone can be taken from any part or region of the body such as the hip or shoulder, it can also be taken from the Cadaver tissue or from an animal. The bone is strategically and professionally placed into the Jaw where needed in an outpatient operation that usually lasts in a few hours.
When the bone is completely healed, probably in six to nine months, then dental implants can be placed for smile restoration.
Bone grafting is a technique that should only be performed by a qualified and highly skilled dentist.

The Importance of extracting wisdom teeth

No comments

Another name for wisdom teeth is third molars which usually appears within the age range 16 and 25. Research shows that most individuals have suffered or currently suffering one or more related issues.
The most common one occurs when a tooth is pressed firmly together.
A dental specialist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon can explain in details, but highlighted below are some helpful information to give you a better understanding of your wisdom teeth.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth:

  • Gum inflammation marked by red, tender, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Swelling of the Jaw
  • Bad breath or unpleasant taste
  • Pain in the head or Jaw.
  • Difficulty fully opening your mouth
  • Swollen lymph nodes in your neck

Surgical Extraction Options.

If you noticed symptoms caused by your wisdom teeth, your dentist can remove them in an outpatient process. If there are any infected parts, the surgery may be delayed while you take antibiotics as medication. To remove a wisdom tooth, your dentist makes an incision in your gums and removes any bone that is blocking the impacted tooth. The tooth itself will be removed and the incision will be closed with stitches.

Risks of Not Removing Impacted Wisdom Teeth.

Removing wisdom teeth before the age of 30 is easier due to increased bone flexibility. Failure to remove the impacted teeth could cause cyst development, infection, mouth discomfort, tooth misalignment, and dental hygiene difficulties. The wisdom tooth extraction cost and anesthesia methods depend on how complex the case is. It’s advisable you contact your dentist or oral surgeon to weigh your options.
The patient can expect minor discomfort and possibly bruising and/or swelling following extraction. Pain medication may be prescribed to reduce discomfort. The patient should return home and take a nap. This will help limit bleeding, the patient may be somewhat weak as well from sedatives.
When healed, the problems associated with wisdom teeth are no longer present. Overcrowding, infection, jaw discomfort, and sores from third molars disappears.
