McGlone Dental Care can do most minor oral surgeries in the office.
If we can't do it, or your case is more complicated, we will be happy to refer you to a local endodontist.
McGlone Dental Care, Denver Colorado
At McGlone Dental Care we want you to feel comfortable with all procedures but especially those surgical ones that include:
Wisdom teeth, otherwise known as third molars are the last set of teeth to develop. Sometimes these teeth emerge from the gum line if the jaw is large enough to allow room for them. If these third molars fail to emerge and don't fully break through the gum line, they can either become entrapped or impacted just between the jawline and gum tissue. Therefore, dentists usually recommend that people with impacted wisdom teeth have them surgically removed.
Other reasons for impacted teeth
It's not just wisdom teeth that can sometimes become impacted and need to be removed. Other teeth, such as, canines and premolars can become impacted and cause the same type of problems described with impacted wisdom teeth.
Dental implants are an option for tooth loss due to an extraction, accident or an infection. They can be used as an alternative to bridges and dentures too. The implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored in place in the jawbone and act to stabilize the artificial teeth to which they are attached. Suitable candidates for dental implants need to have an adequate bone level and density, must not be prone to infection, and must be willing to maintain good oral hygiene practices.
If you have any of these things going on with your teeth, we'd be happy to give you a consultation and best advise you of your options.
