You Don’t Have To Fear Oral Surgery [BLOG]

In our Pompano Beach, FL dental office, we’re dedicated to providing you with a positive, stress-free experience. That’s why we go out of our way to make sure you’re comfortable while you receive treatment.

By that, we mean all of the treatments we offer. Even oral surgery.

We know you don’t skip merrily to your dental appointments, but in general, most people don’t have a problem with routine cleanings and exams. People do, however, seem to think that oral surgery gives them significant reason to dread coming to the dentist.

At Restorative & Implant Dentistry, that’s simply not the case. If you come to us for your procedure, you can trust that you’re in capable, gentle hands. Our dentists, Dr. Slootsky and Dr. Baez, have decades worth of experience at providing high quality care in a way that makes you feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed.

The best part is that you walk away with your oral health back on track now that your dental problem has been treated effectively. You don’t have to worry about the small problem you started off with won’t become a more serious issue down the road.

So what sort of dental problems can land you in oral surgery? Here are some common reasons:

-Ridge augmentation to correct jaw injury or deformity

-Tooth extraction (including wisdom teeth)

-Sinus lifts to treat gum recession

-Bone grafts for dental implant placement

These procedures may sound pretty scary, even if you’re someone who traditionally doesn’t fear going to the dentist. But with our advanced technology and options in sedation, you’re able to handle any procedure, no matter how complicated. You can get the dental care you need while feeling completely calm and at ease.

You can also take comfort in the fact that we’re able to provide most procedures here in our office so you don’t have to go driving through town for multiple appointments with multiple specialists.

Let’s explain each procedure and clear up some of the misconceptions you might have about them.

Ridge Augmentation

Sometimes, accidents happen causing injury that can affect the shape of your jawbone. A ridge augmentation can correct any deformity using replacement bone and gum tissue. This helps to maintain the integrity of your facial structure and your smile.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Whether it’s a tooth that’s been damaged or decayed beyond repair or your wisdom teeth are coming in awkwardly or causing overcrowding, extraction is sometimes necessary. We carefully and gently pull the problematic teeth so you can protect the rest of your teeth and be out of pain.

Sinus Lifts And Bone Grafts

For the sake of your oral and overall health, you should replace missing teeth. Not only do empty spaces in your smile make you feel self-conscious, they also are a breeding ground for harmful bacteria which begins a chain reaction of devastation.

This can lead to infection and gum disease. If either take hold in your mouth, your other teeth are at risk for loosening, or worse, falling out entirely. Without a tooth replacement, your jawbone deteriorates from disuse, and your face begins to change shape as your support structure is compromised.

It’s not a pretty picture for your smile or your health, so sometimes, a sinus lift or bone graft is necessary to provide you with a strong, healthy foundation that will support dental implants, the number one choice in tooth replacement.
