ORAL SURGERY
2
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires several
    additional years of hospital and anesthesia
    training after completing dental school. We
    practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial
    surgery ranging from implants and wisdom tooth
    removal to corrective jaw surgery and facial
    trauma reconstruction. We at M B Dental Home
    provide the most up-to-date care in a comfortable
    and caring environment.

A. Extractions
  • Although extracting teeth is our last course of
    treatment, often extracting teeth is inevitable
    if the tooth is severely infected or broken. When
    extracting a tooth our aim to have a painless,
    comfortable procedure.
  • We use digital x-rays to determine the proper and
    safest way to remove teeth and ensure proper care
    to promote healing and prevent infection.
    Post-operative care following a tooth extraction
    is essential for healing and preventing
    complications.

B. Wisdom tooth removal
  • Wisdom teeth that erupt normally may still be
    vulnerable to decay over time. Because of the
    location of wisdom teeth at the back of the
    mouth, many patients find it difficult to clean
    and floss all surfaces of the teeth each day.
    Although complications may not appear
    immediately, wisdom teeth may begin causing
    problems in middle to late adulthood.
  • Your wisdom teeth removal will likely be
    performed by our oral surgeon. Most removals take
    only minutes to perform, but youll be under
    anesthesia or sedation to prevent discomfort.
    Once the teeth are removed, the gums are sutured
    shut.

C. Dental Implants
  • Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices
    that support permanent tooth prosthetics that are
    manufactured to last a lifetime. These artificial
    roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums
    where they become fused into the jaw. A crown is
    mounted atop the implant for a long-lasting and
    natural looking smile.
  • Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants
    because they offer the same function as natural
    teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the
    jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a
    single missing or damaged tooth or to restore an
    entire smile.

D. Bone grafting
  • Also known as ridge and sinus augmentation. Is a
    procedure used to build up the bone beneath the
    surface of the gums. The bones in the upper and
    lower arch of the mouth are responsible for
    supporting the teeth. When one or more teeth fall
    out, bone resorption occurs naturally. When
    patients decide to replace missing teeth with
    dental implants, insufficient bone mass can
    prevent them from qualifying for the procedure.
  • Bone grafting addresses inadequate bone mass by
    filling in eroded areas with bone harvested from
    the patients own body, or that of a cadaver or
    animal. The new bone helps promote new bone
    growth that will eventually support a dental
    implant. Although dentures and bridges are a
    prosthetic option, they do not provide the same
    benefits available with dental implants. Implant
    dentistry prevents others from recognizing teeth
    as false, and it also prevents the jawbone from
    disintegrating and any remaining natural teeth
    from shifting.
