Wisdom teeth removal

Why It Is Done

A wisdom tooth is extracted to correct an actual problem or to prevent problems that may come up in the future. Some of the problems that can occur when wisdom teeth come in are:

  • Your jaw may not be large enough for them, and they may become impacted and unable to break through your gums.

  • Your wisdom teeth may break partway through your gums, causing a flap of gum tissue to grow over them. Food and germs can get trapped under the flap and cause your gums to become red, swollen, and painful. These are signs of infection.

  • More serious problems can develop from impacted teeth, such as infection, damage to other teeth and bone, or a cyst.

  • One or more of your wisdom teeth may come in at an awkward angle, with the top of the tooth facing forward, backward, or to either side.

  • At your consultation appointment, Dr. Phuong Tran or Dr.Jolie Chu will perform a 3D scan of your jaws. This is to identify the severity of the wisdom teeth impaction, locate the nearby nerves to avoid, thus improving surgical outcome.

Dental Implant

What is a dental implant

 

A dental implant is a high-tech replacement tooth that mimics the whole tooth structure. A titanium “root” is snugly inserted into the bone and is used to support a crown, bridge or denture. It looks, feels and acts like a real tooth and can last a lifetime if properly cared for.

Dr. Phuong Tran and Dr.Jolie Chu have placed hundreds of implants and will happily spend the time to explain the details of the procedure and answer your questions. Using 3D CT scan technology, we routinely use dental implants to replace single and multiple missing teeth.

Dental implant technology has become the state-of-the-art tooth replacement solution because of its advantages over earlier treatments. And, with modern innovations in dentistry, most patients can benefit from them – even those who were formerly told they could not.
