At The Center for Dental Excellence, we’re proud to offer our patients a place for all-in-one solutions for their dental care. We provide 5-star general dentistry, oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, gum treatment, and more. In addition to offering high-quality care, we’re committed to making it as convenient as possible for you to achieve your happiest, healthiest smile.
For that reason, we have recently added an Oral Surgeon to our team. We are so excited about the opportunity to help our patients who require oral surgery in Flossmoor and Homewood, IL. Our oral surgeon offers tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, and dental implants in our state-of-the-art dental office. If you or a loved one needs oral surgery, you can count on our team for the highest quality of care available.
Tooth extractions are the most common form of oral surgery services in our office. There are many reasons you may need a tooth removed, such as…
- An impacted or partially erupted wisdom tooth
- Teeth damaged by tooth decay, root fracture, or trauma
- Primary teeth blocking permanent ones
- Orthodontic treatment requiring the removal of teeth to achieve your optimal bite
Wisdom Tooth Removal
When your wisdom teeth begin to emerge, they can easily grow in at an incorrect angle. This can put pressure on your other teeth. Just in the way that pressure from orthodontic braces can slowly push your teeth into an ideal position, the pressure from wisdom teeth can gradually shift the rest of your teeth out of alignment. The crooked appearance of your teeth will be the least of your problems, though. Misaligned teeth can result in lifelong jaw pain, headaches, and other issues.
If you experience any of the following symptoms at home between your preventative dental appointments, we recommend that you schedule an examination with our 5-star-rated team:
- Jaw pain or tenderness
- Red or swollen gums around your teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Bad taste when you bite down on food
During your exam, our dentist will evaluate the state of your wisdom teeth as part of your dental exam and will determine whether your symptoms are related to wisdom teeth or another potential dental issue. If your wisdom teeth show signs of erupting incorrectly or being impacted, we will advise you to have them extracted as soon as possible. In this way, we can help you avoid the early painful signs of wisdom teeth problems.
Dental Implants to Restore Your Smile
If you have uncomfortable dentures or are self-conscious about your missing teeth, a dental implant could be your best option. Known for exceptional restorative dentistry, our dentist inserts a titanium rod directly into the jawbone where your tooth root would normally be. Once your gums are fully healed, we then attach an abutment, or post, followed by a matching porcelain crown to create your new permanent tooth. While many dentists do not have the skill or experience with dental implant procedures, our dentists have had extensive training and experience with dental implantation.
