Wisdom Teeth & Dental Extractions
Commonly the wisdom tooth, in an attempt to erupt, will be prevented in doing so by the teeth in front. As such, the wisdom tooth will remain partially or completely below the line of the gum (also called impaction). This can lead to an infection around the wisdom tooth or lead to problems with adjacent teeth.
Sedation is offered for teeth extractions if required.
There are specific guidelines for the removal of these impacted wisdom teeth which the dentist will advise you on. In some cases it is required that the gum around the tooth to be lifted back and the bone around the tooth to be selectively removed to allow the wisdom tooth to be removed.
Broken dentures can cause disruption to many important aspects of everyday life, as patients have to go about their daily business without functional teeth. Accidents happen though, which is why it’s important to know what to do if your denture breaks.
Broken dentures can cause massive disruption to a denture wearer’s life and is thus considered a dental emergency. Without dentures, speak and eating will be affected. In turn, self-confidence will plummet, with further damage to mental and emotional well being.
Dentures can break for a variety of reasons, despite withstanding the pressure of the jawbone. For example, a denture is vulnerable to the following accidents; dropping your dentures onto a hard surface, heat damage, if boiling water is used during cleaning.
What should I do if my denture breaks?
If your denture breaks, you must see a dentist immediately for repair. There is a strong chance that your denture may break during hours that your dentist is typically closed. In situations like these, please contact the clinic for the first available appointment.
If the tooth has been lost
If the tooth has been lost, it must be replaced as soon as possible. The following treatments are common ways to replace missing teeth:
Dental implants: these are artificial roots attached permanently to the jawbone with the use of a titanium screw. Your dentist will drill into the jawbone to do this, and you will be administered with a local anesthetic.
Partial dentures: these are removable devices that are clipped onto the surrounding teeth using metal clasps.
Dental bridges: a dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is fixed permanently to the teeth at either side of the gap left by the lost tooth. Dental cement is used to fix a bridge in place.
Not only do these procedures improve the aesthetics of your smile, they also improve the functionality of your teeth.
If a lost tooth isn’t replaced, your dental health as a whole will suffer. The remaining teeth, without the support of the missing tooth, will have to handle much more pressure when biting.
