Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth extractions are a standard surgical procedure that your general dentist can do in their office. At Serenity Advanced Dentistry, you have different sedation options, from nitrous oxide to general anesthesia, to ensure you are comfortable for your extraction appointment. The dentist will numb the area surrounding the extraction site, but some anxious patients benefit from additional sedation.

Wisdom tooth removal can be a simple extraction, but often it requires what is technically a surgical extraction because the tooth is not fully exposed. Any time an incision must be made to access and remove a tooth, it is termed a surgical extraction. Don't let the word surgical worry you; it's a very common procedure.

Healing from surgical wisdom tooth removal takes about two weeks. You may have slight facial and jaw swelling for the first day or two. Cool compresses applied to the swollen area will help keep the swelling minimal. Ibuprofen or prescription medications the dentist provides can manage the pain, which will resolve over a couple of days. During the first 24 hours, you must avoid rinsing, spitting, or using straws so that the blood clot forming in the socket can remain in place; it is critical to proper healing. Strenuous activity can resume after several days. When sleeping, keep your head elevated with an extra pillow or two, and no smoking or drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours. Eat soft or liquid foods for the first few days, then use other teeth when resuming solid foods.

Report severe pain, excessive bleeding, or other unusual symptoms to your dentist immediately. Follow these and any further instructions the dentist gives, and you will be fully mended and back to normal quickly.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants have quickly become the go-to choice for tooth replacement, whether for one tooth or a mouthful. To have implants, you must have the base surgically implanted. The base, aka the post, anchors the replacement tooth. It is most often made of titanium; the dentist will insert the base into the desired location where it will remain permanently. This process requires surgical incisions and possibly bone grafts. Your dentist will determine what is necessary for your needs and fully explain what to expect.

We are pleased to offer all the services required for implants in our office. As with any dental treatment at Serenity Advanced Dentistry, we offer sedation for implant services.

Root Canal

Root canals have a terrible reputation for being one of the worst things that can happen to you in the dentist's chair. Modern dentistry is much better at keeping patients comfortable during this treatment, which is often the only option to save your natural tooth. Rest assured that Dr. Allala is committed to providing the best dental experience available to all her patients and works diligently to ensure every visit, including a root canal, is as stress-free as possible. If the thought of a root canal worries you, speak with us regarding the different sedation options we offer.

A root canal is a treatment to save a severely damaged or infected tooth. The first step is to numb the area of the affected tooth, so the patient does not experience any pain. The dentist removes the diseased pulp, thoroughly cleans and disinfects the canal of the tooth being treated, and places a rubber-like substance in its place. After the procedure, the dentist seals the tooth to stop bacteria from entering the canal. Depending on the extent of the damage to the tooth, you may need a crown after a root canal to strengthen the tooth.

Scaling and Root Planing

Periodontal disease is a common dental issue, with more than 45% of adults having some stage of the disease. Gingivitis is the first stage and is reversible when caught and treated early. More advanced gingivitis becomes periodontitis and requires maintenance treatments to stop the progression, but it is no longer reversible.

Treatment for both phases is scaling and root planing, a deep surgical cleaning that allows the dentist to remove the plaque below the gum line so the gums can reattach properly. The dentist will also smooth the tooth's roots and put an antibiotic in the space to facilitate proper healing. The severity of the gum disease and your response to the procedure determines the number of treatments required. Advanced gum disease is a leading cause of tooth and bone loss; early treatment is critical to restoring oral health.

Routine dental checkups are the best way to ensure your oral health is in good shape. These appointments allow the dentist to spot the early signs of issues, so treatment is not delayed. Call us at Serenity Advanced Dentistry today to see how we can serve your dental needs.
