There are many different reasons as to why someone may need oral surgery. Sometimes oral surgery is required in the event of the aftermath of an injury or because decay and disease require more intensive work to resolve an issue. Other times, oral surgery is required in order to help improve the quality of your dental health, whether it be in the present or the future. When it comes to wisdom teeth removal, it can be a bit of everything, but ultimately it is up to your dentist when your wisdom teeth are to be removed. If you are in need of wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan, then Elliott Ostro DMD Gillen can help you get the comprehensive care that really need.
Wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to develop and emerge from your gums. Wisdom teeth are typically called wisdom teeth because they tend to develop when you are already an adult, typically between the ages of 18 and 21 though some people may get their wisdom teeth earlier or later than those average ages as well. Part of the importance of routine dental exams and checkups is to keep tabs on your overall dental development. With the help of X-rays, dentists can monitor the way in which your teeth are developing and can tell whether there may be any future issues. Many people develop impacted wisdom teeth, which means that they do not come in straight. Mostly, impacted wisdom teeth grow towards the rest of your teeth instead of straight up which can cause a great deal of issues. This can cause dental crowding and immense dental pain as well. Impacted wisdom teeth should likely be removed before they emerge from the gums and before they begin to cause damage. Here with Elliott Ostro DMD, wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan can help to prevent these problems before they occur. Some people have wisdom teeth that are not impacted and may not need to have them removed, but they can be difficult to clean and may be prone to decay. Since wisdom teeth are not entirely necessary, they can be removed to help prevent tooth decay in the future as well.

If you think that your wisdom teeth are coming in or if you are I the market for a dentist that can perform this procedure for you, then simply call us here at our offices and schedule an appointment with us today.

Our periodontal surgeon in Manhattan is highly experienced in providing dental implants for patients, and will make sure that your dental implant roots are precisely placed in the correct location. If you have teeth that need to be surgically extracted, our periodontal surgeon will be able to provide you with this treatment as well. Teeth may need to be extracted for many different reasons. Oftentimes wisdom teeth need to be extracted because they become impacted and cause pain and infection in the mouth. There are times when patients want to get dental implants but the jawbone is not healthy enough. Our periodontal surgeon is able to provide bone grafting for patients so that their jawbone will be able to become thicker and healthier, making them good candidates for dental implants.

Periodontal Surgeon in Manhattan
We know that any type of surgical procedure can cause certain amounts of anxiety, but as an expert in his field, Dr. Ostro’s success rate speaks for itself. We make it our goal to make sure that you’re comfortable and understand all aspects of your pocket reduction surgery. Dental (periodontal) pockets are areas beneath your gums that collect bacteria. Your gums can become sensitive and inflamed, can bleed while brushing or flossing, and root sensitivity may also become an issue. When left untreated, these pockets can cause some severe issues, ultimately resulting in tooth loss. Pocket reduction surgery is a treatment that helps to reduce the depth of the bacteria-collecting pockets. Our periodontal surgeon in Manhattan normally performs periodontal surgery under a local anesthetic but for additional comfort, additional sedation is available.
Normally a very gentle procedure, periodontal surgery is where your gum tissue is lightly pulled back and all the bacteria, tartar and plaque found there, is removed. Once the bacteria, tartar and plaque are removed, your gum tissue is securely placed back around your teeth with tiny stitches. The stitches may be self-dissolving or may need to be removed during a follow-up appointment, depending on the condition of the area worked on. Your first follow-up appointment will be about a week after your surgery and then three weeks after that. Our periodontal surgeon in Manhattan, along with our dedicated staff, are with you every step of the way, making ourselves available for all questions or concerns.
