The Village Dental Center provides regular teeth extractions and non-impacted wisdom teeth removal at our office in Sun City West. Patients may need their teeth pulled for various reasons. Our phenomenal team will be able to assess and determine the best plan of treatment. We are committed to creating a welcoming and comfortable environment for our patients so they will be glad they came to us for their dental care.
REGULAR TEETH EXTRACTIONS
A doctor may suggest a patient receives a tooth extraction for many different reasons. One of those reasons may be because a tooth has decayed which puts the surrounding teeth at risk of also being affected. When it comes to dental care, time is of the essence, as the longer you wait to be treated the more the damage can spread.
Receiving a tooth extraction is a straightforward procedure with minimal recovery time. Once it’s determined that you need an extraction, your dentist may remove the tooth during that visit or have you schedule another appointment. Once the tooth has been removed, depending on your situation, your dentist will fill the hole with one of the many tooth replacement options.
WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS
At The Village Dental Center, we offer wisdom teeth extractions. Wisdom teeth are molars found in the back of your mouth. If you visit the same dentist long-term, they will likely keep their eye on your wisdom teeth’s position each visit and inform you when they are ready to be removed. The best time to have your wisdom teeth removed is when their roots have not fully formed as this will make extraction easier and shorten the recovery time.
Wisdom teeth are most commonly removed due to the lack of space in your mouth. If you don’t have your wisdom teeth pulled and lack appropriate space for them to grow in, your mouth will become overcrowded and can cause serious dental problems. Some of these problems include gum swelling, tenderness, and even severe pain. The Village Dental Center does not perform impacted wisdom teeth removal and recommends patients see an oral surgeon for those.
WHAT TO EXPECT: WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS
Having your wisdom teeth pulled requires a dedicated procedure appointment that is usually scheduled several weeks in advance. You will also need to plan for a couple of days of recovery, so you may need to arrange days off from your school or work.
TOOTH REPLACEMENT OPTIONS
Implants are synthetic tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They are typically made of titanium and shaped like a post. We recommended using bone graft to fill the hole. Once the implant is set, your dentist will cover it with a tooth cap which gives the appearance of a natural tooth so a patient’s smile will not be negatively affected.
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is used to fill in the area of a missing or recently removed tooth. In the mouth, all teeth work collectively when you are chewing or speaking; when one tooth is missing, the change in your ability to chew or speak will be noticeable and possibly even painful. Receiving a dental bridge resolves this problem as your teeth will be accurately balanced and supported again.
Removable Denture Implants
Removable denture implants are an excellent option for patients in need of dentures. Compared to traditional dentures, removable denture implants are far superior because of their snapping mechanism that ensures they stay in place. There are also many lifestyle benefits including more ease and comfort when it comes to eating, smiling, or speaking.
Fixed Denture Implants
With fixed denture implants, there is no need to worry about them slipping. Fixed dentures cannot be removed, making them more hygienic because they can’t be placed on bacterial surfaces. It also prevents you from ever losing them. Fixed denture implants are a great investment for those who are in need of dentures.
