You may find that even the mention of dental implants results in a sudden jolt of mixed emotions. You’ve been thinking about them for your smile and you are thrilled with the advantages and solutions they will most certainly provide for you. You can’t actually think of anything about them that you don’t like. However, there’s still something that’s making you feel too uneasy to feel comfortable moving ahead with solidified plans to replace teeth. Are your instincts telling you to make a different choice? Is it something else? Our Rohnert Park, CA team is ready to help you out!
There are ways to make changes to your life in an instant that you can put into practice. For instance, if you want to know you’re protecting your smile, you get serious about brushing your teeth, flossing, and visiting your dentist.

What you can do, however, is consider dental implants and immediately begin putting a plan into motion that will guide you toward your goal’s finish line! Learn more from our Santa Rosa, CA team!
Not every reason for tooth extraction is preventable, and when it is, the condition often progresses well before the person realizes that they’re tooth is in such trouble. However, once tooth extraction does become necessary, there are few or no options left for protecting the rest of your smile. At our Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgery office, we only recommend extracting a tooth in situations when complex damage or infection, or an impacted position, has left us with no other option for restoring it.

The last four teeth to grow on your dental ridge, known as wisdom teeth, are technically your third set of permanent molars. For most people, however, two sets are enough, and there is often little room left on their dental ridges to accommodate more. This often leads to problems with the growth and development of wisdom teeth, and the need to extract one or more of them due to severe discomfort. At our Santa Rosa, CA, dental office, we can help you find relief from that discomfort by carefully extracting impacted wisdom teeth, or removing them before they even have a chance to become problematic.

When you lose a tooth, the visual impacts it can have on your smile can be significant. Because your smile is such a dominant factor in your appearance, and confidence, that impact can seem like the most important aspect of tooth loss. However, there are also several not-so-obvious effects of tooth loss that can have an increasingly more severe impact on your long-term oral health. At our Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgery office, we can help you avoid those consequences by replacing your lost teeth with one or more highly lifelike, biocompatible dental implants. (more…)

Perhaps you have been wondering why you still have your wisdom teeth. Why didn’t anyone ever tell you to have them taken out? Why didn’t you ever agree to have them taken out?
