Teeth become impacted when they are prevented from growing into their normal position in the mouth by gum tissue, bone, or other teeth. Wisdom teeth sometimes are impacted and require extraction. Teeth might also require extraction if they cause pain or cause crowding of other teeth.
For most people it is necessary to have their wisdom teeth removed simply because there is no room for them in their mouth without creating crowding in their existing teeth. The nitrous oxide allows us to keep you comfortably relaxed with little to no recollection of the process. The Oral Surgeons have performed wisdom teeth extractions comfortably weekly throughout their 15 years of practice.
A gingival graft (also called gum graft or periodontal plastic surgery) is a generic name for any of a number of surgical periodontal procedures whose combined aim is to cover an area of exposed tooth root surface with grafted oral tissue. The covering of exposed root surfaces accomplishes a number of objectives: the prevention of further root exposure, decreased or eliminated sensitivity, decreased susceptibility to root caries and improved cosmetic. These procedures, normally performed by a dental specialist in the field of gingival tissue, known as a periodontist, may be performed by a general dentist having training in these procedures.
