Simple Tooth Extractions

Simple Tooth Extractions

Welcome to Smile Dental Arts Centre, where we offer a comprehensive range of dental services to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. Among our services, we provide expert care for Simple Tooth Extractions.

Our Simple Tooth Extraction Procedure:

  1. Comprehensive Examination: Before any extraction, we conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the condition of the affected tooth and the surrounding structures. This enables us to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
  2. Pain-Free Procedure: Your comfort is our top priority. We utilize advanced local anesthesia techniques to ensure you experience minimal discomfort during the extraction process.
  3. Gentle Extraction: Our skilled professionals use specialized dental instruments to gently loosen the tooth within its socket, making the extraction process as smooth as possible.
  4. Post-Extraction Care: After the tooth is removed, we provide detailed post-operative care instructions to promote proper healing. We will guide you on how to care for the extraction site, manage any discomfort, and maintain oral hygiene during the healing period.
  5. Follow-Up and Restoration: Our commitment to your oral health doesn’t end with the extraction. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress and discuss tooth replacement options if needed, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
Apicoectomy

Apicoectomy

Apicoectomy, also known as root-end surgery, is a minor surgical procedure performed by our skilled endodontists. It is typically recommended when a previous root canal treatment has not been entirely successful, and there is persistent infection or inflammation around the root tip of a tooth.

Here’s how the Apicoectomy procedure works:

  1. Examination and Assessment: Before recommending an Apicoectomy, our endodontist will conduct a thorough examination, which may include X-rays and other imaging techniques, to determine the exact location and extent of the problem.
  2. Local Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the affected tooth.
  3. Accessing the Root Tip: Our skilled endodontist will create a small incision in the gum tissue near the tooth, providing access to the root tip and the surrounding bone.
  4. Removal of Infected Tissue: The endodontist will carefully remove the infected or inflamed tissue around the root tip and clean the area thoroughly.
  5. Root-End Resection: A small portion of the root tip is then removed to eliminate any infected or damaged tissue and to ensure a proper seal.
  6. Root-End Filling: The endodontist will fill the root canal with a biocompatible material, such as gutta-percha, to seal the end of the root and prevent any future infection.
  7. Suturing: Once the procedure is completed, the gum tissue will be sutured back into place.
bone graft

Bone Grafting

Our skilled and experienced dental professionals are well-versed in bone grafting techniques, ensuring a successful and comfortable experience for our patients. Here’s how bone grafting works:

  1. Assessment: Before recommending bone grafting, our dental team will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and 3D imaging, to evaluate the condition of your jawbone and determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
  2. Bone Graft Procedure: During the bone grafting procedure, our dentist will use biocompatible bone material, which can come from various sources, such as synthetic grafts, human or animal donors, or even your bone from another area of your body. The graft material is carefully placed in the targeted area of the jawbone.
  3. Healing and Integration: Over time, the body will naturally integrate the graft material with your existing bone, promoting new bone growth. This process creates a stable and strong foundation to support dental implants or other restorative treatments.
  4. Dental Implants or Restorative Treatment: Once the bone graft has successfully integrated, our team can proceed with dental implant placement or other necessary restorative treatments. Dental implants, supported by a healthy jawbone, provide a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacements that mimic the structure of natural teeth. Composed of a titanium post, an abutment, and a custom-made dental crown, implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for the restoration. They serve as permanent replacements for missing teeth, offering unparalleled stability and aesthetics.

Sinus Augmentation

Sinus Augmentation

Here’s how we introduce Sinus Augmentation at Smile Dental Arts Centre:

  1. Understanding Patient Needs: Our team of dental experts begins by conducting a comprehensive examination of the patient’s oral health and dental history. We take X-rays and 3D scans to assess the bone density and the position of the maxillary sinuses. If a patient lacks adequate bone height to support dental implants, we recommend a sinus augmentation procedure to create more space for implant placement.
  2. Personalized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, our dental specialists develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to the patient’s specific needs. We explain the entire process, including pre-operative instructions, expected outcomes, and post-operative care to ensure that the patient is well-informed and comfortable with the procedure.
  3. Sinus Augmentation Procedure: The sinus lift surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the gum tissue, exposing the underlying bone. A window is created in the bone, and the sinus membrane is gently lifted to create a space for the bone grafting material.
  4. Bone Grafting: Our skilled dentists carefully place bone grafting material into the space between the sinus membrane and the jawbone. The bone graft material may be obtained from the patient’s own body (autogenous bone graft), synthetic bone graft material, or donor bone (allograft).
  5. Healing and Integration: Over the next several months, the bone graft integrates with the existing jawbone, creating a strong and stable foundation for dental implant placement. During the healing period, the patient is provided with post-operative care instructions to promote proper healing and minimize any discomfort.
  6. Dental Implant Placement: Once the sinus augmentation area has healed and the bone graft has integrated, the patient is ready for dental implant placement. Our dental team skillfully places the implants in the augmented area, providing a sturdy and secure anchor for dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures.
  7. Follow-up Care: We schedule regular follow-up visits to monitor the healing process and the successful integration of the dental implants. Our team provides ongoing dental care and guidance to ensure the patient achieves a beautiful and functional smile.
