We do full bony impacted wisdom teeth. We do simple extractions. The thing that we do in addition to that is prepare for what do we do when a patient's missing a tooth. We typically like to reduce the number of invasive procedures. For instance, if a patient has to lose a molar, we have to talk about, well, we're genetically programmed to have it, it comes in when we're six or seven years old, maybe we should think about putting something back in there. Then we talk about implants and socket preservation. We'll oftentimes at the time of the tooth extraction, recommend doing the bone augmentation and soft tissue augmentation.
With the PRF that I spoke a little bit about earlier, we can take some of the patient's own blood and we actually put this in a centrifuge and it prepares a blood clot for the patient already, so it accelerates the healing process, reducing the risk of a dry socket. The growth factors that are responsible for repairing the surgical wound come from the clot. If you have no clot, you have no growth factors. That's why this PRF is such a wonderful development for anybody doing oral surgery.
What we do is we can place a little plug into the socket. We can mix it with particulate bone graft material and start the process of the surgical wound healing. At the end of the three or four months’ healing period, we have a more robust ridge, something that has a higher composition of bone, and consequently will be able to accommodate a nice implant and allow us to get the primary stability that we need so the patient can function with this for many, many years.
Removing teeth for a healthier mouth
We do tooth extractions, whether it’s single tooth extractions or wisdom teeth extractions. We feel strongly that in order to say we take care of all our patients’ dental needs, that we take care of one of the more basic dental needs. Let us help you get a problem tooth out of your smile and get you back to a comfortable, healthy state.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that come into your mouth. They are an extra set of molars (back teeth) that normally come in between the late teens and early 20s. They can cause many problems and pain, primarily because they do not come in correctly or there is just not enough room in your mouth to accommodate them. Whatever the reason, Dr. Brar can help you and your smile by extracting this unneeded set of molars.
Fix jaw and bone issues
I love coming to his practice because I've been with him for 30 years. Of all the medical people that I interface with, he has state-of-the-art equipment without question. He always stays up on his knowledge base. He's always going to seminars. I know he has a number of different degrees or certifications, but he always stays on top of his stuff. His advice is very welcome.
I've had things done for me over the years that basically, some root canals and some fillings and some gum work, some bridge work. I'm not a big extraction guy, but he advised me over the course of two or three years to extract a specific tooth. I didn't do it until recently. I'm glad I did now. He's always ahead of the game but like I said, he doesn't force anything on you, and he doesn't make you feel guilty if you take issue with him. He's just a great guy.
A ridge augmentation fixes deformities in your jaw that are the result of injury, tooth extraction or tooth loss, or even genetics. We graft bone into place to correct the deformity and give you back a normal, full appearance.
A sinus lift is another procedure that uses a bone grafting procedure. First, Dr. Brar will lift a portion of your upper jaw into your sinus cavity. The resulting void is filled with bone-like material to stimulate new bone growth. This may be recommended if you need to build up bone mass for the placement of dental implants.
Stop gum recession with gum grafts
Gum recession is one of the biggest reasons you would need a gum graft. By taking healthy gum material from another area of your mouth (most likely the roof), Dr. Brar will restore the proper level to your gumline and get your smile back to where you want it.
In addition to building up gums, Dr. Brar may recommend a bone graft. If you need more bone mass for dental implant placement or need to correct the profile of your smile, we often suggest bone grafts. This procedure can give you incredible long-term results.
