Dr. Kashfian performs oral surgery under local or general anesthesia. There are a number of oral health conditions which may necessitate oral surgery including the following:
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
The final set of teeth to develop is often known as third molars. When patients have adequate space in their jaw to accommodate the addition of third molars, these teeth can emerge without complications. However, third molars tend to partially erupt, emerge out of alignment, or may even become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to infection, swelling, and pain. They can also cause damage to neighboring teeth, gum tissue, and bone. Impacted wisdom teeth may also lead to the development of cysts or tumors, which can cause damage to the jaw. Dr. Kashfian, Beverly Hills oral surgery dentist and Chatsworth oral surgery dentist, recommends removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent any damage. Although it is fairly common to have impacted wisdom teeth, other teeth can also become impacted.
Dental implants are a viable tooth replacement option for patients who have lost their teeth due to oral health complications including periodontal disease, dental caries, or trauma. This dental appliance is designed to replicate the patient’s natural tooth root, providing a strong, stable foundation for a dental crown. Ideal candidates for dental implants should be free from periodontal disease, have adequate bone density, and be in good general health.
