Oral surgery is an important part of the practice at Modern Family Dentists LLC. This practice performs simple extractions, implants, and wisdom tooth removal. These services are intended to relieve pain, avoid further infection or harm, and keep up good oral health of patients. A simple extraction is the removal of a tooth that is infected or damaged beyond repair. This procedure does not include the removal of any gum tissue. If patients are nervous about tooth extractions, sedation dentistry options are available, including oral sedation as well as nitrous oxide (inhaled).
Implants are a solution to one or more missing teeth, that doesn’t involve removable fixtures such as dentures or partials. Implant surgery is a three-step process, involving a screw that is placed in the jawbone, an abutment, and a crown that will resemble a natural tooth. Implants normally require multiple appointments in order to properly consult with you about the best implant option, whether that is implant-supported dentures, or a single tooth implant to give you back your smile.
Finally, wisdom tooth removal is another service offered by Modern Family Dentists LLC. Wisdom teeth are removed for a variety of reasons, normally related to their improper growth positions or the fact that they are causing pain to a patient. Wisdom teeth are important to remove, because left untreated, they can damage the jaw or the gums. Oral surgery can sometimes be intimidating, so Dr. Aust and his care team are glad to offer you sedation dentistry options for any procedure. If you have pain or think you may be in need of oral surgery, feel free to give us a call or send an email today. We would be happy to help you.
