Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to appear in the mouth usually between 17 and 25 years.
Because you must extract the wisdom teeth?
Often in the mouth there is adequate space for the wisdom teeth to erupt without creating a crowding.
This may prevent your wisdom teeth have room to erupt completely (dysodontiasis) resulting in improper impact with the adjacent teeth can be damaged.
The wisdom tooth root lengthens with age and this makes the extraction more difficult.
A wisdom tooth partially included can lead to serious infections with severe pain.
How come I do not have these problems?
Some of the problems can not be alerted when the wisdom tooth is not yet erupted.
When I have to pull wisdom teeth?
The American Association of Maxillofacial Surgery is recommended to remove wisdom teeth when the patient is a young adult.
Extractions of wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
After surgery you may have discomfort and mild swelling.
Dental implant is the restoration of a dental element or whenever there is agenesis (absence the tooth germ).
The implant modern techniques provide for the insertion of one or more "roots" (from the shape of a small screw) titanium, the upper jaw (maxilla) or the lower (mandible) to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental implants can be used to support single crowns, bridges or removable partial dentures or full (the so-called "racks").
The treatment plan is tailored to the patient's condition (type and amount of bone and prosthetic needs) and the type of plant chosen.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
The patient who has overall good health and adequate bone in which to place the implant.
When the bone tissue is not sufficient, it can be obtained with advanced bone regeneration techniques.
Dental implants require the same treatment as natural teeth: proper hygiene by brushing and flossing.
With the laser-assisted surgery they are removed the bacteria responsible for the damage of periodontal disease.
How is the surgery performed laser-assisted periodontal?
The tartar present in the gingival pocket is removed from the root of the tooth with small instruments, subsequently it applies a laser beam between the gum and tooth by eliminating the pathogenic micro-organisms present.
Unlike traditional surgical periodontal therapy; laser-assisted therapy does not require any incision or stitches, making the procedure painless.
The healing times are lower compared to classical surgery.
Most patients do not require pain medication.
The graft of gum refers to oral car logo tissue grafts (that is, taken from the patient himself) to cover the surface of the exposed areas of the tooth root.
This surgical procedure is used to increase the gum tissue where there are no teeth, to improve the aesthetic and functional aspect of the prosthesis and preventing a periodontal recession.
How is the surgery performed?
Under local anesthesia it has taken the healthy gum tissue and stuck to the root surface exposed by the micro sutures.
This treatment can be performed to more teeth simultaneously.
Who is a candidate for the gingival graft?
The patient with sequelae of periodontal disease.
- Those who have a small amount of gum tissue.
- Who has dental gaps
After surgery, in a short time, the gum will return to be perfectly sound and will not require any special attention.
The health of the mouth, teeth and gums has direct impact on overall health.
Research has recently established that the same bacteria that cause gingivitis can colonize other areas of the body, including the coronary arteries.
They have been linked gum disease with some serious diseases:
- heart disease
- Pregnancy problems
- Pancreatic Cancer
How did the medical intervention?
Our doctors gently raise the gums to remove tartar accumulated under the gum line, the gums are then attached to the surface of the teeth just "sterilized."
I am a candidate for the intervention of periodontal surgery?
Pain, gingival bleeding, bloating, bad breath, are problems that heal with this type of surgery.
The healing time after the surgery varies between 2-3 weeks, usually there are no particular inconvenience.
'Important after surgery to follow medical instructions:
- Keep clean areas of the mouth
- Use ice to reduce swelling
- Avoid taking hot food or drinks.
This type of intervention is necessary to:
- Reduce excessive gingival display
- Improve endurance, the aesthetics of a crown or a reconstruction
- Restoring the health of gingival tissues compromised by inadequate restorations.
How did the crown lengthening?
The gum is reduced in thickness and remodeled by removing small amounts of tissue in the desired areas; obtaining a gingival symmetrical line with the teeth of appropriate length.
Am I a candidate for crown lengthening?
- If there's a smile with excessive exposure of gum or tooth decay and / or tooth fracture that extends below the gum level.
- If you are in good general health with adequate amount of bone and in the absence of inflammation.
After surgery, postoperative discomfort is limited.
The healing time varies with the amount of tissue removed (typically 2-3 weeks).
