Find out more about the issues that oral surgery can handle and why it might be right for you.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Often times this third and final set of molars to erupt don’t actually erupt properly or fully. If this happens to you this means you are dealing with impacted wisdom teeth. Molars that only partially emerge from the gums leave an opening in the gums where food, plaque and bacteria can get trapped. Over time, this increases your chances of developing issues such as cavities, gum disease or an infection.

Problematic wisdom teeth can also affect the health of neighboring teeth and bones. If this is something you are dealing with then your general dentist in Pasadena will recommend that you get these teeth extracted.

Tooth Loss

No one wants to face tooth loss but millions of Americans are missing one or more permanent teeth. If you are dealing with this issue we have the solution for you! Dental implants are a long-term restoration for replacing one or more missing teeth. What makes implants so popular is that they offer so many aesthetic and functional benefits that other tooth replacements can’t. When you opt for dental implants, the implant will need to be surgically placed into the jawbone so it can fuse together with the bone to become one.

Dental implants are used to hold everything from a single dental crown to a full set of dentures. If you are dealing with tooth loss then it’s time to find out if you should consider getting dental implants in Pasadena.

Gum Disease

While some cases of gum disease can be treated non-surgically, there are some more severe or unresponsive cases that require surgery in order to improve gum health. Known as flap surgery, this procedure lifts the gums away to remove tartar buildup and to smooth surfaces to reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth that could cause further issues.

If you are dealing with any of these problems isn’t it time you found out your treatment options? Call Pasadena Dental Implants and schedule a consultation with Dr. Cooper today!
