Annual dental visits are important to your dental health as well as to your overall physical health and wellbeing. It is often necessary to visit the dentist more than once a year, whether it is for cleanings or to treat any conditions that arise between visits. An abscessed tooth can happen any time and requires immediate dental attention. Our Brownsville oral surgeon here at Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC, Dr. Hertz can comfortably remove any abscessed tooth or teeth in order to prevent further discomfort or oral complications.

An abscessed tooth can be incredibly painful. An abscess is a painful infection of the tooth, either in root or surrounding gums. This is most commonly caused by tooth decay, but can also occur due to traumatic events such as the breaking or chipping of a tooth, gingivitis or another gum disease. Any of these preliminary conditions can allow bacteria to enter the tooth enamel or the gums and cause infection and inflammation. If an infection goes unchecked, it can further affect the adjacent teeth and jawbone. You will absolutely know if you need a tooth removed due to infection since the associated tooth ache is severe and can cause other serious side effects such as fever, foul smell of the breath and foul taste, painful chewing, teeth sensitivity to hot or cold foods, swollen jaw, draining sore on the gums, a general redness or swelling, as well as a general feeling of illness and possibly nausea. Oral hygiene is vital to preventing such conditions and can be kept up with during routine visits and cleanings. Here at Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC, our Brownsville oral surgeon can provide you with a painless abscess removal, alleviating you of both pain and further complication.

Seeing our Brownsville oral surgeon for regular checkups can ensure that your jaw and teeth are free of decay via inspection, cleaning, and X-rays. Here at Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC, Dr. Hertz is dedicated to providing you and your family with the most comprehensive and gentle oral health care, making sure to perform any necessary procedures to do so.

Are you missing teeth on the upper portion of your jaw? Are you considering dental implants as a method of replacement? Our Brownsville oral surgeon, Dr. Marc B. Hertz, assists patients with their dental implants often, and would love to do the same for you. Dental implants are an excellent restorative option because they provide patients with replacement teeth that function and appear just like natural teeth. However, if you need your upper teeth to be replaced, some preliminary procedures are sometimes necessary before the actual dental implant process can begin. When upper teeth are removed or fall out, in many cases there is only a very thin wall of bone that separates the maxillary sinus and the mouth itself.

Because dental implants need sufficient bone mass to keep them held securely in place, this thin wall is usually not enough for the procedure to be carried out successfully. If our Brownsville oral surgeon encounters this problem with patients, we will often recommend a procedure known as a sinus lift graft. During a sinus lift graft, we will first enter the sinus area from the space of your missing upper teeth. We will then lift the sinus membrane upward and insert donor bone matter into the floor of the sinus—which is the roof of the upper jaw. You will then need to take several months to allow the area to heal. Over this period of time, the donor bone will begin to become integrated with the natural bone in your jaw, allowing a sturdy and reliable foundation for your new dental implants to be attached. Then we will be able to begin the dental implant restoration and start replacing your teeth.
