Dental implants are often the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Many people have tooth loss as a result of injury, tooth decay, or gum disease. With almost 50 years of clinical research to support their use, dental implants are a safe and effective long-term solution for permanent tooth loss. They are also as stable as healthy permanent teeth because they are surgically placed in the jaws.

One of the most exciting advances we currently offer is full arch restoration: a previously used denture is replaced with fixed dental restorations using 4 to 6 dental implants. A loose or poorly fitting denture can be replaced with a comfortable, permanent bridge that looks and feels like natural teeth.

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are recognized dental specialists who are specialty trained in an American Dental Association accredited, hospital-based residency program to provide surgical solutions for permanent tooth loss, such as dental implants. Our health care team at Tri-County Oral-Facial Surgeons, P.C. will work closely with you and your dentist to develop a care plan that lets you smile confidently again.

Wisdom Teeth & Extractions

One of the most common extractions is of the wisdom teeth. These are the third and final set of molars most people get in their late teens and early twenties. When there is insufficient space in the mouth, a tooth may be prevented from normal eruption and may become impacted and stay confined to its socket.

Impacted teeth are not in the proper position for chewing and cleaning. They may even grow sideways. There is also a greater risk for bacteria to grow and cause infections. Crowding and damage to nearby teeth and roots are additional problems associated with impacted teeth.

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons and your dentist may recommend that your wisdom teeth or other teeth be treated. Tri-County Oral-Facial Surgeons, P.C., will thoroughly review your medical and dental history and take specialized x-rays of your mouth and jaw to determine how best to treat your condition.

Our surgeons are licensed by the state of Pennsylvania to administer all types of anesthesia if this is necessary. Being proactive and having your wisdom teeth extracted, generally in your late teens or early twenties, may help you avoid a more complicated extraction later in life.
