Improve Your Oral Health with Fairbanks Dental Associates
Our state-of-the-art practice is equipped with modern dental technology that allow us to gather an accurate overview of each patient’s situation. Cone beam CT scanners improve our insights on the smile and allow us to take an in-depth look at the patient’s health. Using this information, we make an accurate diagnosis to ensure patients undergo the best treatment available to get them back to better health.
Removing Impacted Wisdom Teeth
An impacted tooth that forces its way into the smile can cause misalignment and crowd teeth. Additionally, when too many teeth grow into a smile that’s too small, it causes greater issues like difficulty speaking and eating in comfort.
In these cases, an extraction removes extra teeth and creates room for the smile to develop properly or remain healthy. Removing an extra tooth helps patients maintain a better oral hygiene and perform it normally.
Remove Decayed Wisdom Teeth
When infection invades the inside of the tooth, accessing the inner canals, it can weaken the tooth to the point of collapse. If left untreated, the decay can spread to other areas of the smile, including the supporting bone and soft tissues.
Keeping the smile healthy may necessitate removing a tooth and preserving natural structures that remain healthy.
Caring for Your Smile after an Extraction
After extracting a damaged or infected tooth, the smile is left with an unwanted gap. Tooth replacement is essential in preserving the smile’s alignment and supporting the natural bone.
If left untreated, missing teeth can lead to the jaw atrophy, causing accelerated resorption. Dr. Fairbanks offers post-treatment for extraction as well as dental implant placement and restoration. Bone grafting supports the natural bone and prepares the smile for teeth replacement.
Dental implants are comprehensive replacements for missing teeth, able to address anywhere from a single missing tooth up to an entire arch.
