Suffern 3rd molars extraction

When we refer to 3rd molars, you may know them better as wisdom teeth. They typically erupt during your late teens or early 20s, but that doesn’t mean it’s a rule. A person can have 3rd molars erupt at any time for the teen years on. You may be under the impression that they always have to be removed, but that’s not always the case. At Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we want you to know that when your 3rd molars grown in properly aligned, there is usually not any pain associated with them and they probably will not need to come out. That’s the good news. The bad news is that most of the time, they grow in crooked, crowd surrounding teeth or damage them, your jaw bone, or the nerves. If they become impacted, which happens when they come in only partially and therefore allow bacteria to get inside, swelling and pain are almost certain to follow. That’s when you’ll need our Suffern 3rd molar extraction.

After an examination, our local oral surgeon will determine if there is an infection present. If so, you might need to be on antibiotics to address it and your procedure will be delayed temporarily. At the time of our Suffern 3rd molar extraction, you will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Our oral surgeon will open the gum tissue over the teeth to be removed. Any bone tissue that is covering the tooth will be taken out and the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone will be separated. Sometimes, the tooth has to be removed in pieces.

You will probably require stitches afterward. You will be offered gauze to stem any bleeding, which is perfectly natural after surgery. Our local oral surgeon will give you complete instructions to follow for the first 24 hours. You can take over-the-counter pain relief medication or we will prescribe a stronger one for you if needed. Full recovery generally takes a few days, but it’s wise to take it easy for the first day after our Suffern 3rd molar extraction. Avoid smoking if at all possible. Place an ice pack on your cheek to alleviate swelling. And limit yourself to softer foods.

Your wisdom teeth are your third molars, and they tend to come in around the ages of 18-25 or so. If your wisdom teeth do not have enough room to grow in normally, which is often the case, they will become what is known as impacted.

Ramapo Dental Implant Surgeon

Oral Surgeon 10901

In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a dental extraction, or a routine oral surgery, is a good candidate for dental implant surgery. A dental implant is a new tooth made of porcelain and metal that looks remarkably like your own natural tooth. The titanium implant body replaces the missing root, and then the tooth-colored crown is cemented on top of the implant. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for removable or permanent replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Our Ramapo dental implant surgeon at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, creates and maintains beautiful smiles using state-of-the-art equipment. Keeping up to date with the latest advancement in dental implants, we incorporate that knowledge into our practice.

We all want to look our best and the major advantage to dental implants is definitely improved appearance. Dental implants not only feel and look like your own teeth but become permanent because they are designed to fuse with your bone. Another important advantage is improved speech. If you have poor-fitting dentures, your teeth can slip inside your mouth, causing slurring or mumbling, and dental implants allow you to speak freely without the worry that your teeth might slip. Functioning like your own teeth, dental implants make it possible for you to eat your favorite foods without worry. When it comes to confidence, dental implants that are fitted by our Ramapo dental implant surgeon improves self-confidence since they give you back your smile and make you feel better about yourself.

When taken care of properly, dental implants can last a lifetime, and have a success rate of up to 98%. A candidate for dental implant surgery will have enough bone and healthy gums to hold the implant, so we definitely promote proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits. You will need to be evaluated on an individual basis if you suffer from heart disease or diabetes, if you’re a heavy smoker, or have had radiation therapy to the head or neck area. Our caring Ramapo dental implant surgeon, and our dedicated staff, takes a personal interest in every patient to find out your history and goals so we can make sure that you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery.
