In many cases when the teeth are severely infected due to decay or bone loss (periodontal disease), the only viable option is removal of the infected tooth, and thorough cleaning of the extraction site to allow complete healing of the bone. On selected cases, a bone graft procedure is performed to restore the extraction site to its original condition, preparing it for replacement with an implant or an aesthetically pleasing bridge replacement.
Wisdom teeth, otherwise known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. Sometimes these teeth emerge from the gum line and the jaw is large enough to allow room for them, but most of the time, this is not the case. More often, one or more of these third molars fails to emerge in proper alignment or fails to fully emerge through the gum line and becomes entrapped or "impacted" between the jawbone and the gum tissue. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of the jaw.
Dental implants are an option for tooth loss due to an accident or infection or as an alternative to dentures, and bridges. The implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored in place in the jawbone and act to stabilize the artificial teeth to which they are attached. Suitable candidates for dental implants need to have an adequate bone level and density, must not be prone to infection, and must be willing to maintain good oral hygiene practices.
