Handling the different types of oral surgery with excellent care in our office near Kennesaw

At Thirty-two Dental, we offer our patients a wide range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services to keep their smiles feeling great, looking great and functioning at maximum capacity. Instances may arise from time to time, requiring more in-depth procedures like oral surgery of some kind. Different types of oral surgery procedures are performed in our office near Kennesaw. Most frequently, these procedures relate to tooth extraction or bone grafting for dental implants.

Bone grafting is a common procedure performed by skilled oral surgeons. We understand that this type of procedure can seem scary. There is an important reason for completing the bone grafting procedure, though.

When a tooth or teeth are lost or extracted, their roots are, as well. This means that what was once supported by bone tissue in the jaw is now absent. The result of this change in the oral structure is the gradual breakdown of bone tissue. Over time, the area where a tooth once sat becomes lower than the surrounding area. At this point, placing an implant or bridge can lead to a look described as “long in the tooth.”

There are a few solutions to bone loss, each of which can be performed in our office. First, a tooth that requires extraction can be immediately replaced with a dental implant. When inserted into the empty socket immediately, an implant encourages accelerated osseointegration, in which bone fuses around the titanium implant post just as it had been fused around the tooth root. Bone grafting is the second solution.

The bone grafting procedure is actually quite simple. Our patients remain completely comfortable using local anesthetic. To remove feelings of anxiety, nitrous oxide can also be incorporated into treatment. During the procedure, sterilized bone granules having the texture of coarse sand are placed into the empty socket. A protective membrane made of collagen is placed over the granules, and gum tissue is stitched over the socket. Having the bone grafting procedure done after tooth extraction requires no additional recovery time, and results in the buildup of the area with natural bone tissue.

Bone grafting may be performed at the time of tooth extraction or at any point after tooth loss. Some people undergo bone grafting as a preemptive procedure to dental implants after wearing dentures for years. The type of bone grafting performed is determined on the level of bone loss. Your dentist will determine the extent of care needed during your initial consultation for care.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
