Treatments Available

To provide our patients with the best care possible, we offer oral surgery. Two of our most common surgeries are extractions of impacted wisdom teeth and bone grafts.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafts are performed when a patient loses a significant amount of bone mass in the upper or lower jaws.

Extractions

When a tooth cannot be repaired or restored, an extraction may be the best option.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are types of molars found in the very back of your mouth.

Bone Grafts

A bone graft is a restorative process that utilizes healthy, new tissue to replace missing or damaged bone tissue. By doing so, the graft enables the body to rejuvenate bone and reestablish the jaw’s natural structure. Typically, a bone graft is conducted following tooth loss or extraction.

When a tooth is lost, the jaw may shrink and alter its shape, which could potentially hinder the placement of dental implants. However, a bone graft can augment the area where the tooth was previously located, guaranteeing that there is sufficient bone in the jaw to support the implant.

Extractions

When a tooth cannot be repaired or restored, an extraction may be the best option. Our dentists will assess your tooth and determine if it can be fixed or if it should be removed. There are a few reasons a tooth may need to be extracted, such as:

Wisdom Teeth

The process of removing a tooth completely is called tooth extraction. This procedure is usually carried out when a tooth has suffered irreparable damage. In cases where a tooth is impacted or hasn’t fully emerged through the gum line, surgical extraction may be the most suitable option.

After a tooth extraction, there are several options available for replacing the missing tooth. Among these options, the most frequently chosen are dental implants or dental bridges.

Ensuring Your Comfort during Extractions

We know that extractions can make some patients apprehensive. For that reason, it is very important to us that we support you every way we can during this procedure so that you can stay as relaxed as possible.

We will keep the atmosphere calm and relaxed and listen to you if you are uncomfortable or you need a break during the procedure.

Our Special Technique to Speed Healing

To reduce your pain and improve your healing, we will utilize your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelets are a particular kind of cell in your own blood. They are utilized by your body for clotting and healing. We will extract a small quantity of platelets from your own blood and place these in the site of the extraction. Patients receiving PRP report less swelling and discomfort after an extraction.

Surgical Extractions

If a tooth must be removed, your Dentist Colorado Springs CO will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. Then, we will gently rock the tooth back and forth until it is loose and then pull it out. Sometimes, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces. This depends on the size and shape of the tooth.

At our office, we can perform non-surgical extractions as well (also referred to as “simple extractions”). When you visit our dental office, our dentists will carefully examine your teeth for signs of a problem. If we determine that an extraction is necessary, we’ll take careful steps to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Recovery After Extractions

Oral Surgery FAQs

Oral surgery involves surgical procedures performed on the mouth, teeth or jaws. This can include extractions, implants, and corrective jaw surgery.

While some discomfort may be expected after oral surgery, modern anesthesia techniques and pain management medication make it possible to manage any pain effectively.

It is recommended to start with clear liquids immediately after oral surgery before gradually advancing to soft foods as tolerated by the patient.

The time needed for recovery will vary depending on the type and extent of your surgical procedure. Discuss this with your surgeon beforehand so you can plan accordingly.

As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved in undergoing an oral surgical procedure. However, most of these can be minimized by proper screening and careful planning by the surgeon.

Follow all post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon which typically include taking proper medication as well as avoiding certain foods or activities until fully healed.

The length of recovery varies depending on the specific procedure done but can range anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Your surgeon will provide guidance regarding what activities you should avoid and for how long following your surgical procedure.

Most dental insurance plans provide coverage for necessary procedures such as tooth extractions or oral biopsies although coverage may vary depending on your specific plan.

Your dentist or oral surgeon will be able to evaluate your condition and recommend the best course of treatment based on your individual needs.
