3 Ways To Keep Your Smile Healthy With Oral Surgery [BLOG]
At Attleboro Family Dental Care, we want you to have the highest quality of care because that’s what you deserve. That’s why we’re dedicated to an investment in the latest technology and committed to continuing our training so you’re in the hands of specialists.
Dr. Helal is one of them!
Here are three ways he and our team can use oral surgery to keep your smile healthy!
*1 – Prepare For Dental Implants*
Ideally, you’ll be able to keep all your natural teeth for your entire life.
But since that’s not realistic for everyone, we’re so proud to be able to offer our patients in Attleboro, MA the number one alternative!
Dental implants are different than other replacement options because they actually replace your lost tooth root before your new tooth is attached to it. We place implants inside the jawbone where it will eventually bond itself to it and promote healthy bone growth over the long term.
That’s why implants are the most successful method for replacing missing teeth and provide more reliable, stable function than all the rest.
But without enough healthy bone in your jaw, or enough healthy gum tissue, you may need to have oral surgery to help you become a good candidate for implants. We can do that here!
With a bone or gum graft, or even a sinus lift to make extra room for an implant, we can prepare your mouth for the best tooth replacement modern dentistry has to offer!
*2 – Preserve Your Healthy Smile With Tooth Removal*
Every skilled dentist knows that when it comes your teeth, nothing will ever be as good as the real thing. That’s why we always try to rely on tooth removal as a last resort.
But there are cases that warrant tooth extraction for the sake of your oral health, such as teeth that have been too badly decayed, damaged, or diseased to save.
That doesn’t mean, however, we can’t give you the next best thing when it’s time to replace a lost tooth! As we’ve mentioned, we offer dental implants, the strongest, longest-lasting tooth replacement in modern dentistry. Your bite power can be restored to nearly the same level you have with real teeth, thanks to implants and our durable restorations!
*3 – Relieve Pain With Wisdom Teeth Removal*
One of the most common oral surgeries we perform are wisdom tooth extractions. In your late teens or early twenties, your third set of molars begin to erupt. While some people are lucky enough to avoid an extraction, others have problems when wisdom teeth become impacted or erupt in the wrong position.
Times like those call for removal of your wisdom teeth so you can avoid or relieve dental pain, as well as protect your other teeth from becoming crowded or crooked.
We will gently extract your painful wisdom teeth right here in our Attleboro, MA dentist office and do all we can to make sure you’re comfortable throughout the entire process and be there to support you during recovery should you have questions or experience any complications.
Schedule Your Procedure
We understand why you might dread oral surgery and want to put it off, but we also know that keeping your smile healthy and intact may depend on it.
That’s why Dr. Helal and our team at Attleboro Family Dental Care go above and beyond to make your oral surgery a success. We’ll cater to your comfort needs, and use the latest technology to make your procedure as quick, effective, and relaxing as possible.
