Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Most teens and young adults will end up having a recommendation to have their wisdom teeth removed. These teeth are rarely in a good position and more often than not contribute to the breakdown of bone, tissue and the presence of added bacteria in the mouth due to their difficulty to keep clean. Wisdom teeth are easily removed under sedation anesthesia in our Gainesville, VA office in a one-hour appointment. Recovery time is only 2-3 days on average and most patients don’t miss school, work or other activities at all if proper home care and post-operative instructions are followed.
Full, Partial and Implant-Retained Dentures
Should you find yourself in the position where you are missing teeth or you have a tooth that cannot be restored and need to be extracted, our expert dental surgery team can help. There are many options now, with today’s technology, for replacing missing teeth. The video shows a few different available options. Since everyone’s dental condition is different, it is important to talk with your dentist about what options are available to you specifically for replacing your missing teeth – as not every option is suited to every patient. If you are in the Gainesville, Haymarket, Manassas or surrounding areas, our oral surgeons can help determine the best option for your present and future dental health.
If you are missing teeth or have a non-restorable tooth, dental impants may be a great option to fill the space. Implants were developed decades ago and first used in the 1960’s (in fact – the first implant placed is still in the patient’s mouth! She lives in Switzerland!). Dental implants are made of titanium, the only metal that bone adheres and integrates to, and are a very popular long-term option for patients that requires minimal maintenance. The dental implant process includes a few procedures and proper healing time between procedures. Most patients find that maintenance is easy, simply brush and floss as normal and keep to a regular professional cleaning schedule and your implants can last a lifetime! Schedule a consultation with our expert dentists to see if dental implants are a good option for you.
If you are having a tooth extracted, Dr. Cudjoe may recommend bone grafting at our Gainseville, VA dental office, regardless of whether you are undergoing a bridge or a dental implant procedure, bone grafting may be necessary. This procedure helps to minimize bone loss around the adjacent teeth, gum recession and other factors that may make the long-term prognosis of your restoration less favorable than if the bone graft is not done. During your consultation, Dr. Cudjoe will explain the factors involved in bone grafting and your possible outcomes with and without the graft procedure.
