Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom tooth extraction is a common oral surgery procedure that involves the removal of one or more of the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. These teeth usually emerge in the late teenage years or early adulthood and can cause a range of problems, including pain, infection, decay, and damage to adjacent teeth or the jawbone. In many cases, they may need to be extracted to prevent further complications. Wisdom tooth extraction is typically performed under local anesthesia, and in more complex cases, general anesthesia may be used.

After the procedure, patients may experience some swelling, pain, and bleeding, which can be managed with medication and proper aftercare. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the dentist or oral surgeon to ensure proper healing and prevent complications.

Frenectomy Treatment

Frenectomy Treatment

Frenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal or modification of the frenulum, a small piece of tissue that connects the lips, tongue, or cheeks to the underlying tissues. The frenulum can sometimes cause problems with speech, eating, or oral hygiene if it is too tight or short, leading to a condition called "frenulum breve." In some cases, frenectomy is also performed to prepare for orthodontic treatment or to improve the fit of dentures. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia and involves cutting or releasing the frenulum to allow for greater movement and flexibility.

Canine exposure treatment

Canine exposure treatment

Canine exposure treatment is a common dental procedure that involves exposing impacted canines, also known as eyeteeth, and moving them into their proper position to improve the appearance and function of the teeth. This procedure can be performed with or without sedation, depending on the patient's age, anxiety level, and the complexity of the case. When performed with sedation, the patient is given a medication to help them relax and feel comfortable during the procedure. Sedation can be helpful for patients who are nervous about dental procedures, have a strong gag reflex, or require a longer treatment time.

Conscious sedation

Conscious sedation is a commonly used technique during oral surgery treatments to help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. It is a safe and effective way to manage anxiety and discomfort associated with dental procedures, especially for patients who are fearful of the dentist.

However, it is important for patients to follow pre-operative instructions, such as fasting before the procedure, and to have someone accompany them to and from the appointment as they may not be fully alert for a period of time after the sedation wears off.
