Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
Dental Implants Barnstable MA
Dental Implants are the most predictable and natural form of tooth replacement. Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth.
The actual implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. Bone bonds with the titanium, which creates a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Once you learn about implant dentistry, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life. Implants help to preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that may occur when teeth are missing. If your mouth is not ideal for ;implants, options such as bone grafting may be recommended for improved outcome.
Wisdom Teeth Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of wisdom teeth, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to wisdom teeth are discussed.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Barnstable MA
An average mouth has room for 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in. These last 4 teeth are your third molars, which are also known as “wisdom teeth.”
Wisdom teeth are last to erupt within the mouth. Wisdom teeth may need to be extracted when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. Removal of the offending impacted teeth usually resolves these problems.
Early wisdom teeth removal is recommended to avoid future problems and to decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure.
Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment of wisdom teeth result in a superior outcome for the patient. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by their dentist, orthodontist or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, Dr. Wygonski can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there may be present or future problems.
Orthognathic Surgery Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of orthognathic surgery, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to orthognathic surgery are discussed.
Jaw Surgery Barnstable MA
Corrective jaw surgery is needed when jaws don’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws.
Who Needs Orthognathic Surgery? People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. This can result in problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health and appearance.
Orthodontics alone can correct bite problems when only the teeth are involved. Orthognathic surgery may be required for the jaws when repositioning is necessary. Dr Wygonski uses modern computer techniques and three-dimensional models to show you exactly how your surgery will be approached. We can show you how your bite will be improved after surgery. We can also display a preview of your appearance after jaw surgery, using comprehensive facial X-rays and computer video imaging.
