Oral Surgery in McDonough, GA
Smile Creators is repeatedly the top choice for cosmetic dentistry in Mcdonough, GA, but we also perform various oral surgery procedures which can substantially enhance your smile and lifestyle.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the last of the permanent teeth to erupt and when they do, there usually isn’t enough room to accommodate them. As a result, the wisdom teeth can become impacted or come in abnormally (such as partially or sideways).
There are disadvantages to leaving these malpositioned wisdom teeth in place, such as chronic sinus infections, jaw pain, headaches, and causing your permanent teeth to shift. Not all dentists provide this service, but at Smile Creators, we are equipped to handle the majority of wisdom teeth extractions to better serve our patients.
Tooth Extractions in Henry County, GA
Tooth extractions are performed when there is a tooth or multiple teeth that are showing signs of gross decay, damage, or infection. Drs. Huynh and Le have extensive experience and are able to provide most extractions within our facility.
Impacted Tooth Removal
In many occasions, a tooth does not entirely grow out. When this occurs, it means the tooth or teeth are impacted. This happens mainly when there is not enough room in the mouth for the tooth to grow out which then necessitates oral surgery to remove the tooth. This mainly happens with wisdom teeth.
There are many serious consequences to not removing impacted teeth. The tooth can become infected and lead to periodontal disease. The impacted tooth could even develop a cyst. In extreme cases, bacteria from the mouth could get into the bloodstream and cause other severe problems such as systemic infections that affect the kidneys, the heart, and other organs in the body.
Frenulectomy, also known as frenotomy or frenectomy, is the removal of the frenum (or frenulum), which is a piece of tissue that connects the inside of your upper lip to the center of your gums between the two upper front teeth. This is called a “labial” frenum and results in a noticeable gap between your upper front teeth. A frenulectomy may be necessary in conjunction with braces to close up the gap. Come in to Smile Creators and speak to one of our dentists for more information.
Dental Implant Placement
Over 70% of adults have lost one or multiple teeth due to an accident, gum disease, tooth decay, and even a failed root canal. Over 3 million adults have a tooth implant, and that number steadily grows by 500,000 each year.
The success rate of dental implants is reported at 98%, making implant placements one of the best options available for replacing missing teeth.
