Wisdom Tooth Extractions
As the last teeth to fully emerge in an adult’s smile, wisdom teeth can often bring serious problems with them, ranging from the disruption of nearby teeth to complete impaction, which can lead to cysts and other dangerous health concerns. If you still have your wisdom teeth, Dr. Bickler and his team will be sure to track their placement and health through periodic visual exams and X-rays to ensure your oral health isn’t being threatened. If we do determine that your smile would be better served by having them removed, we can arrange for an extraction procedure.
Whether it occurs because of periodontal disease, long-term denture wear, or even a severe facial injury, some patients lose a significant amount of bone in their oral cavity over time. A bone graft procedure is a safe and versatile way to regain this vital lost tissue and even encourage new growth. Dr. Bickler may recommend bone grafting for a number of reasons, depending on a patient’s personal needs. It may be needed to create a stable base for a new implant or as treatment option for periodontal disease. In some cases, this procedure can even be used to create a more aesthetically pleasing facial appearance.
When it comes to tooth replacement solutions, dental implants are the clear frontrunner today due to their health benefits and lifelike, long lasting qualities. First, the implants are precisely positioned within the jawbone and allowed to gradually bond; then, we will uncover the implants and attach abutments that protrude through the gums and serve as anchors for your new, personalized crowns. We will be offering this transformative process soon right here in the familiar comfort of our Big Bear City office; in the meantime, Dr. Bickler will be happy to recommend a convenient, nearby specialist who can provide the exceptional results you deserve.
