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 dental office, and can also restore it using a crown, bridge, or dentures. As mentioned Dr. Young has completed a two and one half year post graduate program in all types of implants, implant surge ry, socket augmentations/bone grafts and sinus augmentations which allow bone to be developed in areas where not enough bone exists for implants. Because Dr. Young is familiar with a wide variety of applications of dental implants, he will 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 DMD degree, he went on to complete a hospital residency and then 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.
