Common Reasons You Might Need Oral Surgery
Often dentists refer patients to oral surgeons when surgery is required. This means meeting a new dentist, possibly some travel, and a taste of the unfamiliar.
At Phinney Ridge Dental, our dentist performs most surgeries on site. This means you and our dentist don’t have to rely on an outside surgeon’s timetable. And our in-office dentist is free to create the best timeline for optimal outcomes!
Our dentist performs oral surgeries with fantastic results! Let’s looks at a few common oral surgeries.
There are several reasons why you might need a dental extraction. These include:
- Trauma from an accident
- Deep decay
- Complications with wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth often shift and put pressure on other teeth, and they can become impacted and only partially erupt. This can lead to infection and overcrowding. Extracting a broken or severely damaged tooth may also make way for a dental implant or partial denture.
Dental implants are the premier choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth and enhancing smiles.
At our Seattle, WA dental office, our dentist performs implant surgery often and with fantastic results.
A dental implant is one or more small titanium posts surgically implanted in your gum. These posts, after fusing with your jawbone, are hosts for artificial replacement teeth, an affixed denture, or bridge.
Our skilled dentist also performs bone grafting and sinus lifts in office, which makes your implants safer and provides better bone support for stability.
If you’re having oral surgery, our dentist and staff will make sure you’re relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. We will also provide aftercare instructions to accelerate healing.
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, have a damaged tooth, or suspect an infection, contact our dental office today to schedule an assessment with our skilled dentist.
