Problems with Not Treating an Impacted Tooth
Posted on 9/15/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
When people have a pain in a tooth, they may go through a few stages. They will try to convince themselves that the pain will go away soon enough. They may think that the pain is not that big of a deal. They may change the way they do things to minimize the effect of the pain and the other symptoms they have from the problem. If the pain and other symptoms are the result of an impacted tooth, trying to ignore the problem is not the best idea. It can lead to a variety of problems that are worse than getting the impacted tooth taken care of early on. The Symptoms of an Impacted ToothMost people will experience some symptoms if they have an impacted tooth. The two most common symptoms are swelling and pain. It is possible to manage these symptoms, but as long as the impacted tooth is not treated, those symptoms will continue and are likely to get worse. Not treating the impacted tooth can lead to problems the longer it is left untreated. The symptoms will typically become harder to manage There is also the possibility that more problems will begin to arise. Over time, bacteria can grow and can lead to an infection and an abscess. The impacted tooth can become diseased which can lead to issue not only with the impacted tooth, but with the surrounding teeth and gums as well. When infection sets in other symptoms will emerge that include a bad taste in the mouth, bad breath and pain in other areas as the infection spreads. It is possible to leave an impacted tooth untreated, but it is not something anyone should do. There is the slimmest of possibilities that the impacted tooth may eventually emerge, but it is more likely hat there will be more and bigger problems later on.

Who Are the Best Candidates for Implant Supported Dentures?
Posted on 8/30/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Those that need to replace the teeth inside the mouth may look to use dentures or implants to replace these missing teeth. Both of these options are great and most used options for so many patients across the world. If you're considering either of them, why not consider implant supported dentures? These are more permanent teeth instead of dentures. Find out who we believe the best candidates are for implant supported dentures. Are You a Good Candidate for Implant Supported Dentures?Those that have healthy gums, and enough bone to anchor the implants into the jaw are great candidates for having this type of implant. Those that have bone loss can still have implants put in, but they may have to do a bone graph in order to have something to anchor the implant into. Those that are missing most of their teeth and are okay with having the rest of them pulled out are ideal for this type of denture. Even those that are using regular dentures currently can find that these implant supported dentures may be a better option for them. We take the time to look over the person and their particular case to find out if they are the ideal patient for this type of dentures, as they are a better choice to go with rather than the traditional dentures that are often placed inside patient's mouths. It is important that you look into all of your options before choosing which to go with. We can answer any and all questions you may have. If you're considering the use of implant supported dentures, then it is important to look into whether or not these are the best option for you to go with, or if you are a good candidate. We can provide more information on both, so the person is able to have a beautiful smile that they want....

What Treatment Options Are There for Impacted Molars?
Posted on 8/15/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
There are some people who come to our office with some type of problem that tell us to do whatever we need to fix the issue. They don't want to know what the different options are to fix a problem, they just want us to fix it. When it comes to impacted molars, there are a few options available for treatment. It is a good idea to learn the options available for you. Learning these options is one way to help you get the best possible treatment for your teeth and gums. The Most Common TeethWhen you talk about impacted molars, you are most often talking about the wisdom teeth. This is the third set of molars in the mouth and the last ones to grow in. An impacted molar occurs when the tooth is not able to fully emerge through the skin. This can happen if there is not enough room for the new molars or if the skin is too thick for the tooth to break through it. If this happens, you can experience a variety of symptoms that include swelling and pain. If left untreated, it can lead to problems that include infection and issues with the other teeth. Dental Treatment OptionsThe treatment options depend in part on the tooth. If there is enough space and if the tooth has begun to emerge and is healthy, the first option is to wait. There are ways to manage the symptoms that occur and if the tooth is fully able to emerge, nothing more is needed. When the tooth is not healthy or cannot fully emerge or comes in crooked and creates problems for surrounding teeth, the best option is to remove the affected molar. Extraction of the tooth is the best way to keep the rest of the teeth happy and to eliminate the problems the impaction can cause. An impacted molar is a problem, but there are solutions. It is better to take care of this sooner rather than later because the problems often only get worse over time.
