Patients with one or more missing teeth often turn to dental implants, the long-term solution for missing or failing teeth. A dental implant is designed to replicate the look and function of a natural tooth, including the root. The implant post fuses with the jaw bone, similar to a natural tooth’s root, and provides stimulation during chewing. This keeps the jaw bone strong and prevents it from deteriorating. When a tooth is missing, the jaw bone doesn’t receive the necessary stimulation and will atrophy over time. Dental implants prevent nearby teeth from shifting into the open space, and they can even support a fixed denture in one or both dental arches through full-arch restoration. You will care for a dental implant just like a natural tooth by brushing and flossing it regularly and can enjoy feeling confident about your smile again with this healthy, long-term replacement option.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many dentists and oral surgeons recommend having wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible. Also called third molars, these are the last teeth to develop and typically make an appearance around the late teens or early twenties. It’s recommended to have them extracted before they fully develop, due to the teeth being smaller and less embedded into the jaw bone, plus younger patients have easier surgeries and recoveries. However, you can have wisdom teeth extracted at any age. If you leave wisdom teeth untreated, they can cause pain, swelling, difficulty opening the mouth, and dental overcrowding. An impacted wisdom tooth is one that has become trapped beneath the gums. Impacted teeth are difficult to properly clean and leave you susceptible to infections, cysts, and tumors. Avoid all of these oral health complications by having wisdom teeth removed early at Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center.
Why Choose an Oral Surgeon
Oral surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating problems both in the bone and soft tissue structures of the neck, head, mouth, and jaws. In addition to their dental degree, oral and maxillofacial surgeons must complete a residency program. During these 4–6 years, the surgeon will gain hands-on training in a surgical setting while seeing patients with a variety of oral health needs. This includes learning how to safely administer local and general anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.
In addition to this experience, all of the oral surgeons at Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center are certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, a prestigious organization that recognizes the nation’s top oral surgeons. Our team of surgeons are the experts that Central California trusts to deliver beneficial results and an overall positive patient experience to everyone. When a patient requires care that falls outside of a general dentist's scope of treatment, the dentist will refer the patient to an oral surgeon. Oral surgery offices typically utilize more advanced 3D imaging technology, which helps detect problems and track the development of facial structures as they heal.
Our oral surgery practice has multiple offices located in the central valley to serve our patients. We perform many surgical procedures, including bone grafting, orthognathic surgery, general tooth extractions, cleft-lip and palate repair, treatment for oral pathology and facial trauma, restoring missing teeth with dental implants and full-arch restoration, and much more. Together, our team of specialists will determine the right treatment for your needs so that you can achieve a healthy smile you can feel confident about.
