When a tooth is too badly decayed to save, Drs. Estrella will perform an extraction. An extraction may also be recommended if the tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but some do. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, or in instances of gum disease, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best to pull the wisdom teeth before they jeopardize your smile as a whole.
We will take a panoramic radiograph of your entire jaw, so we can see the size, location, and development of the wisdom teeth in consideration. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but 3rd molars do not finish developing until closer to about 30 years of age.
Periodontal disease can cause the jawbone to become too weak to support a dental implant. In cases like this, Drs. Estrella will often recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote healthy bone growth and thicken your jawbone. Over time, your jawbone will naturally regenerate and become strong enough to support a dental implant.
A sinus lift, also called a sinus augmentation or sinus graft, is an oral surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. Many patients require a sinus lift procedure prior to placing dental implants in order to have enough healthy bone to successfully support a dental implant.
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum grafting is a common periodontal procedure performed at Estrella Dental. This procedure is commonly used to treat gum recession. Once completed, the soft tissue surrounding your teeth can begin to naturally regenerate, restoring a healthier smile. Benefits include reduced sensitivity, an improved smile appearance and overall improvement of gum health.
A lip and tongue tie release surgery is often referred to as a frenectomy. This procedure is used to correct a congenital condition when the tongue or lip is too tight in a child’s mouth, restricting oral function.
A tongue or lip tie can lead to difficulty breastfeeding for an infant and to other concerns such as dental, digestive, and speech problems. If you’re concerned your child may have a lip or tongue tie, schedule a pediatric dentistry appointment with our San Diego or Chula Vista dental office.
