No one relishes the thought of having to undergo any type of surgery. There are always risks and complications involved, as well as downtime that is needed for recovery. However, advances in oral surgery over the years have greatly simplified most of these procedures, meaning that you can return to work or daily activities very quickly in most cases.
Let's take a look at some common types of oral surgery that we perform at Aesthetic Dental Center of Morris County. This will help you familiarize yourself with them so that you know what is involved if you should ever need to undergo oral surgery.
Benefit of ultrasonic bone saw such as Piezotome is that this technology allows surgeons to cut hard structure (bone) without cutting or damaging soft tissue structure such as gum/ blood vessels and more importantly nerves.
Thus, this allows us to perform complex and risky procedures such as Jaw Split, Sinus lifting and other hard tissue surgeries with minimal risk to adjacent nerves, blood vessels and soft tissues.
Tooth extractions are one of the most common procedures that we perform. Tooth decay can completely compromise a tooth, which must be pulled. Left untreated, infection could spread throughout the mouth area and body, causing serious health problems.
The simple type of extraction involves the delivery of anesthesia to numb the tooth; we then grasp the tooth with special tools to pull it. You should experience no pain during an extraction, although you may have the sensation of pressure in the area.
Some people develop wisdom teeth soon after they become adults. Although sometimes the wisdom teeth do not present a problem, they often require removal due to different reasons described in the section of wisdom teeth extractions on this site.. Wisdom teeth are not considered to be essential for modern humans who no longer need to vigorously chew to break up hard materials that our ancestors fed upon, like nuts and tough meats.
A dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth. A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implants, which connects to a replacement tooth. Finally, a crown, a replacement tooth, is custom fabricated to match your natural teeth. The field of implant dentistry has seen many advances in recent years, and helps patients improve their smiles and oral health better than ever before. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild disease or damaged bones.
This technology allows you to use your OWN blood product to promote healing and growths of grafted tissue. With a specialized preparation technique, we are able to concentrate wound healing factors from your blood and add to your surgical site to promote wound healing. Compared to other techniques such as PRP and BMPs, this technique uses NO chemical additive nor foreign materials so there should be no risk of reaction.
We at Aesthetic Dental Center of Morris County have necessary set up and equipment for different types of oral surgery procedures.
