Odontectomy(Impacted Third Molar Removal)
- An odontectomy is the surgical extraction of a tooth that is partially or completely encompassed by bone.
- It differs from a regular surgical extraction because the bone is removed that surrounds the tooth and then the extraction of the tooth takes place.
- The dentist typically cuts open a section of the gum to reach the bone, and if necessary, drills a hole in the bone to access the tooth.
- The dentist then loosens the tooth from the surrounding socket using elevators, and may cut the tooth into sections for easy removal.
- Forceps are used to hold the socket open while the sections are taken out piece by piece. The procedure is completed under local anesthesia, but more serious cases may require general anesthesia.
- If the dentist decides to leave the root behind, the procedure is known as partial odontectomy or coronectomy, meaning only the crown of the tooth is removed
Replacement of missing teeth using root form titanium implants.
B. Orthodontics (Braces)
Orthodontics is the study of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites, and crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment can help fix your teeth and set them in the right place.
C. Cosmetic Dentistry (Teeth Whitening, Laminates, Veneers)
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and/or smile.
D. Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue) becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth.
E. Prosthodontics (Bridges, Dentures, Jacket Crowns)
Prosthodontics is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes.
