Third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are usually the last four of 32 teeth to erupt (surface) in the mouth, generally making their appearance between the ages of 17 to 25. While not all wisdom teeth require removal, wisdom teeth extractions are most often performed because of an active problem such as pain, swelling, decay or infection, or as a preventative measure to avoid serious problems in the future.
About 2% of your blood cells are called platelets which come into play when the body has suffered an injury. Platelets help the blood to clot, start the healing process, and they also release growth factors into the affected area that stimulate the formation of new bone, blood vessels, muscle, nerve tissue and more. This gives us a variety of applications to improve your overall dental health.
With advances in medicine and technology, we have had the opportunity to begin using guided surgery technology. This makes the oral surgery in Williams Lake even more precise. Talk to your doctor today about the added benefits of guided surgery!
Gum grafting (also known as a gingival graft or periodontal plastic surgery), is a collective name for surgical periodontal procedures that aim to cover an exposed tooth root surface with grafted oral tissue. Though the name might sound frightening, the procedure has many benefits, including: reduced sensitivity, improved appearance, and improved gum health.
