Sheepshead Bay Teeth Extractions
Sometimes a tooth has to come out and later be replaced by an artificial one. Sheepshead Bay teeth extractions are done by our practice, Contemporary Dental Implant Centre for a number of different reasons such as overcrowding, extensive decay, uneven bite, injury, or wisdom teeth that need to come out. Our doctors will perform all types of extractions from the relatively easy to those cases that require a significant amount of oral surgery. All nine of our convenient offices are equipped with state-of-the-are equipment and technology to perform the most advanced oral surgery and implant dentistry procedures.
Often Sheepshead Bay teeth extractions are followed by the placing of dental implants which will eventually hold a crown to replace the extracted tooth. Whether a tooth has been extracted or has been lost naturally after a while the jawbone associated with the missing tooth atrophies or is reabsorbed and may not leave enough good quality bone that is suitable for the placement of an implant. Today, our doctors have the ability to grow bone where it is needed through the process of bone grafting. Bone grafts are performed to repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure, or to increase bone strength and depth on the upper jaw next to the maxillary sinus, or to increase dimension in the jaw ridge. Our practice will perform minor and major bone grafts. Typically, repairs of defects of the jaw due primarily to traumatic injuries, tumor surgery or congenital defects will require a major bone graft. In order to perform a bone graft our doctors will use bones obtained from a tissue bank, usually taken from a cadaver, of your own bone harvested from your jaw, hip, cranium or tibia. When dealing with a major bone graft our doctors will use a graft that is taken from the patient’s own body.
Sheepshead Bay teeth extractions can now become the sites for new teeth thanks to dental implants. The various types of bone grafts make it possible for our patients to have dental implants where just a few years ago they would have not been able to be placed. The grafted bones, whether the patient’s own or donated, help stimulate the patient’s bone growth in the area making the site for the implant stronger. Dental implants help you avoid the necessity of using dentures to replace missing teeth and bone grafts help make implants possible when your existing bones are not sufficient.
