Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are the most common oral surgery, and they may be required for a variety of reasons. The wisdom teeth are our final set of four molars, which tend to erupt when we are 17-25 years of age. They often do not erupt properly, and can cause oral health issues like a higher risk of infection and damage to the surrounding teeth. Because of this, they are often extracted once they begin to erupt.

Tooth extractions are also sometimes required if you have one or more teeth that have been seriously damaged by tooth decay, periodontal disease, or an oral injury. In some cases, extracting these teeth and replacing them with prosthetics like dental implants will be the best way to restore your smile. 

Finally, extractions are sometimes required to prepare for other dental treatments. Some patients who have orthodontic issues, for example, may need to have one or more teeth extracted. Teeth also must be extracted to prepare for the placement of some restorative treatments like dentures.

Bone Grafts

A bone graft may be necessary if you want to get one or more dental implants, but your jaw has weakened after tooth loss. With a bone graft, you can restore the strength of your jaw and get the treatment you need. 

Bone grafts involve opening up the gums and placing bone powder or granules into the jaw bone. Over time, natural bone heals around this bone, strengthening the area sufficiently for a dental implant.

Alveoloplasty

An alveoloplasty is used to prepare your mouth for a dental implant, dentures, or another dental prosthetic. In this process, Dr. Schmidgall will use special dental tools to smooth out the bone “ridges” of your jaw bone after you’ve had one or more teeth extracted.

This is done to remove sharp ridges that may interfere with the proper fit for your dental prosthetic, ensuring a perfect, natural fit.

Serious oral health problems may require surgical intervention. For example, if you have several damaged teeth, you may require tooth extractions. Or, if you have lost a tooth and the underlying jaw bone is too weak, you may require bone grafting to prepare for a dental implant.
