Common Reasons for Oral Surgery

Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Also called third molars, wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. In most cases, inadequate space in the mouth doesn’t allow wisdom teeth to erupt properly and become fully functional. Wisdom tooth extraction helps ensure that the rest of your teeth stay healthy and your mouth remains infection-free.
Gum disease, missing teeth, injuries, and infections can cause loss of bone in your jaw.
When there is bone recession/loss, bone grafting is recommended to provide a strong foundation for dental implants. Bone grafting is also used to limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction or periodontal disease.
This common dental procedure is often performed following a tooth extraction to help recreate the natural contour of the gums and jaw after tooth extraction results in bone loss. If you’re getting dental implants, Dr. Matha will restore natural boney contours and density with ridge augmentation or fill an empty tooth socket to slow the resorption process.
Maxillary sinuses reside behind the cheeks and on top of your upper teeth. Frequently, when upper teeth are extracted or missing, all that remains is a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. A sinus lift strengthens and builds bone in this location so dental implants can be placed and secured in the new bone growth.When there is bone recession/loss, bone grafting is recommended to provide a strong foundation for dental implants. Bone grafting is also used to limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction or periodontal disease.
Guided Tissue Regeneration
Tissue regeneration is done to encourage jawbone tissue to grow so it can provide a stable and strong foundation for dental implants. After gum pockets are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, Dr. Matha places a bioabsorbable membrane between your gum tissue and bone where it grows into the desired shape and is slowly reabsorbed.
