There are many different issues that can affect your smile. Advanced stages of periodontitis (gum disease), developmental disorders and accidents can damage both the teeth and bone tissue. To help address these issues, All Smiles Munster may recommend a dentoalveolar treatment. Contact our office today at 219-838-7703 for more information.
During your first appointment with Dr. Bunmi Adekugbe, our dentist will examine your teeth, gum tissue and jawbone. Based on this examination, our dentist will determine which dentoalveolar procedure is right for you. Some of the common treatments available at our office include:
- Tooth extractions: When necessary, our dentist will perform this procedure using a safe anesthetic.
- Wisdom teeth extraction: The removal of the third molars, which can interfere with the alignment and health of neighboring teeth.
- Exposure of impacted teeth: When the tooth becomes stuck within the bone, an exposure procedure can help the tooth move up and into proper alignment.
- Alveoloplasty: A procedure that reshapes the jawbone. (This is usually recommended for patients who have, or are thinking of getting, a set of dentures.)
