Why You Need Oral Surgery?
A wonderful advantage of oral surgery is that it can repair the problem with your oral health. You may want to improve the health of your jawbone, treat a problematic tooth, get dental implants, etc. All these goals can be reached with the right type of oral surgery. Most importantly, you would want to address the underlying problem that is affecting your oral health, not just the symptoms. For example, we can re-align your jaw so that you can stop relying on pain relievers. If you want to prevent significant damage caused by progressive dental problems or achieve long-term tooth replacement, it is important to consider oral surgery.
Areas Of Specialty
When it comes to oral surgery, below are some of the areas that Dr. Alex Rubinov specializes in:
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Also known as third molars, wisdom teeth tend to develop in one’s early twenties or late teenage years. In many cases, your jaw bone is unable to support this extra set of molars. If you want to maintain optimal gum and tooth health and avoid overcrowding, wisdom tooth extraction is a necessary procedure.
Dental implants are usually utilized in situations where a patient has lost more than one tooth as a result of periodontal disease or trauma. These implants are basically synthetic roots for teeth. They are designed to be embedded into your jaw to lock an artificial tooth or a dental bridge in place. There are currently two types of dental implants: endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants.
How can one fix a damaged tooth caused by decay? If your tooth is rendered beyond repair, it is pertinent that you extract it without delay to eliminate discomfort and further pain. You can rest assured that tooth extraction is an efficient and safe way to remove a tooth from the bone’s socket. In some cases, tooth extraction procedures become viable solutions for creating more space for teeth to be moved into their desired positions.
Bone grafting is an oral surgery technique that is used for regenerative purposes. In some cases, dental surgeons need to recreate soft supporting tissues or supporting bone that were damaged by trauma or periodontitis. If you feel that there is a need to maintain your bone structure to avoid looking prematurely aged after a tooth extraction procedure, bone grafting may suit your needs.
