Oral Surgery in Manahawkin
Oral surgery is the kind of thing most people do not like to think about, but it comes up in most people’s lives at some point. For most, it’s in the form of a wisdom tooth extraction, or perhaps they want to get dental implants. Oral surgery is an extremely effective tool in dentistry today that is used to correct and prevent a wide variety of problems. Perhaps your wisdom teeth are starting to bother you, or you’re looking to finally replace your missing teeth. Maybe you have a set of dentures that just isn’t working anymore, and you want a longer lasting solution. In all of these cases, oral surgery in Manahawkin may be your answer, and can help improve your oral health for a lifetime.
Types of Oral Surgeries We Offer
Most dental practices would need to refer you to a specialist for any kind of oral surgery. This often only slows down the process as you and your records need to be shuffled over to another doctor, who then has to learn about your condition and decide on what to do. It’d be much simpler to have it all done in one place, right? Thankfully, that’s the kind of practice Dr. Robert Young can provide you. He is able to offer a wide variety of oral surgeries that can correct a myriad of issues. All under one roof, you can get:
- Wisdom Teeth Extraction
- Dental Implant Placement
- Dental Implant Restoration
- Socket Preservation
- Bone Grafts
- Ridge and Sinus Reductions
This means that the doctor who recommended you to get oral surgery will be the same one performing it. This will help him have a much better understanding of your condition, and will save you the time and hassle of having to go to another doctor’s office.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
By far, the most common oral surgery Dr. Young performs is a wisdom tooth extraction in Manahawkin. This involves removing the third set of molars that typically do not start to erupt until your adult years. Most people’s mouths do not have room for these teeth, so they can lead to issues like crowding, jaw pain, and may even become infected. To prevent this, they are often extracted before they appear above the gum line. Dr. Young will always keep an eye on your wisdom teeth when you come in for a regular check-up, which will enable him to know the perfect time to remove them i.e. before they start to cause problems. He’ll be with you throughout the entire process, including the surgery and recovery, so you’ll know you’re getting the best care available.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are the most complete form of tooth restoration available today, which is why they are becoming more and more common. The first step involves placing a small titanium post into your jaw to recreate a tooth root, and of course, this requires surgery. Dr. Young can perform this placement in his office, and can also restore it using a crown, bridge, or dentures. He is familiar with a wide variety of applications of dental implants, meaning that he’ll be able to figure out your best course of treatment while completing it in a timely manner.
A Special Kind of Care
Of course, you might be asking, “Why would I get oral surgery from my dentist?” If other dentists have to refer patients to specialists, why doesn’t Dr. Young?
This is because he has gone above and beyond the standard training and education required for a general dentist. After receiving his DDS degree, he went on to complete a two year post-graduate program in implant surgery at the Misch Institute of Implantology, one of the most well-respected schools associated with the discipline. He also has a Fellowship with the Academy of Oral Implantology in addition to decades of experience treating patients. In order to make the experience more comfortable, he is also trained to use oral sedation and IV sedation. He is one of only a handful of dentists in the country who have received this level of training, which is why he is able to better serve a wider variety of patients.
