The branch of dentistry which deals with the removal of the teeth, procedure called as extraction. Care is taken in every aspect to maintain the required sterilization standards to perform the procedure, where every patient is given preference and handled in the safe hands of the specialist doctor.
When wisdom teeth/third molars do not get space to erupt properly, they get stuck in the bone. These are called Impacted Teeth. When they try to come out/erupt and are unable to do so, they cause inflammation and infection of the gums. This is reflected as pain and swelling in the patient’s mouth. In these cases, these impacted teeth need to be removed by surgical extraction.

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will perform the following:
Alveoloplasty: Alveoloplasty involves contouring the alveolar structures. It may be done in conjunction with multiple surgical extractions to eliminate sharp bone edges that could cause discomfort to the patient, and to provide suitably contoured bone structure for denture fabrication and insertion. An alveoloplasty may also be performed to contour the bone without being in conjunction with extractions
Dental Cyst Removal: Like regular cysts, dental cysts are sacs of fluid or other soft materials that build up underneath tissue around the teeth. Also like regular cysts, many dental cysts are benign and are cause for little concern. They can, however, become infected or start to affect the teeth surrounding it, so you should seek an appointment to be sure that your cyst doesn’t become a dental nightmare
Dental cysts can become infected, which can create pain and swelling in the mouth. They may also push up against nearby teeth, which can cause the teeth to shift slightly or become sensitive. Cysts can also cause your jaw to weaken as they can take over where bony tissue has died. If left untreated, a cyst can sometimes interrupt a normal mouth’s function.
The best way to prevent a cyst from forming is a twice year dental check up. This will allow us to keep an eye on your mouth and observe any abnormalities or changes in your teeth. Root canals can prevent dental cysts from forming by filling in the space around a dead nerve after it has been removed. This is an effective preventative measure because dental cysts often form near or on top of dead nerves, which typically occur from decay, infection or an injury to the mouth
Minor surgery is typically the best option to remove cysts. The surgery consists of a dental surgeon injecting a local anesthetic to the cyst’s site and removing the cyst’s tissue or sac.
Vestibuloplasty: a minor surgical procedure undertaken to increase the depth of vestibular sulcus to increase the bone ridge height so that the denture stability is increased and our geriatric patients can enjoy the comfort of wearing the denture in a better way.
