Is Oral Surgery Right for You?
When questioning whether or not oral surgery is right for you, it really depends on the person’s unique situation. For some, they visit our office to have an impacted wisdom tooth removed, while others desire a full smile with dental implants. Both of these procedures require oral surgery to complete.
There are many benefits to having oral surgery, including making it possible to have dental implants when bone tissue loss has occurred. No matter what your specific goals are, Soundview Family Dental is here to help.
Our dentists can recommend specific procedures to help you achieve your dental goals. Below you’ll find the oral surgery services we offer at our Edmonds office.
Types of Oral Surgery Provided by Dr. Kitts and Dr. Hewett
Bone grafts are used to build up bone tissue that has receded due to excessive tooth decay, or long term denture wearing. For most patients, bone grafts are used as a precursor to getting dental implants.
With a graft, our dentists will use bone tissue from another area of your body, or a bone grafting material, and apply it to the area in your jawbone that needs more tissue.
Dental implants are the best way to restore a smile after tooth loss. These are surgically implanted titanium posts that are positioned directly into the jawbone.
This offers a more secure way to affix restorations and is considered a permanent solution to missing teeth. When done correctly, dental implants have a very high success rate, at 98% after five years.
Extractions can be needed when excessive tooth decay is present, as well as to remove a tooth that has broken down to the gumline. Often teeth can be extracted without the use of oral surgery, but for some, when a tooth is too far gone, a surgical extraction may become necessary.
Surgical removal will require an incision into the gumline to expose the broken tooth, making it easier to remove. We provide this service in our office, with no need to make a separate appointment to visit an oral surgeon.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Similar to surgical extractions, wisdom teeth removal applies to the teeth that come in behind the molars. These are often painful for the patient. But aside from being unpleasant, they can cause surrounding teeth to shift, throwing off the alignment of all the other teeth.
Wisdom teeth typically arrive in the late teens or early
Sinus lifts are another oral surgery performed to give dental implants the best chance at success.
These are used when there is not enough bone on the top arch at the molars and premolars to support dental implants. The bone will be added to
Fill the Gap in Your Smile, or Eliminate the Pain of Wisdom Teeth
There are several reasons why you should visit Soundview Family Dental for oral surgery. You may have an impacted wisdom tooth that is causing extreme pain, or that is shifting your other teeth. You may desire to fill a gap in your smile due to missing teeth, and would like a permanent solution with dental implants. In different situations, there may be a need for surgery if there is bone loss, and a bone graft would give a better foundation.
