Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC is your go-to East Flatbush dental surgeon for bone grafting surgery. Bone grafting surgery is a procedure that is sometimes needed before a dental implant surgery can be performed. Dental implants need to be attached to the jaw bone, in some patients there is not enough bone to allow for the implants to be safely and securely anchored. In order to remedy this problem we are able to supplement the bone mass with of the patient’s jaw so that the impact can be firmly anchored into the mouth. This surgery is amazing in that it not only replaces the missing bone in the jaw but helps the body to regenerate it’s own bone. This new bone growth helps to strengthen the grafted area and overtime your own newly formed bone will be able to replace much of the grafted material. Dental implants will be able to be properly put in and give us a chance to more effectively restore the aesthetic and functional roles of your teeth.

Before a tooth is surgically removed, our dentist will thoroughly evaluate your dental and medical history and take all appropriate x-rays. The x-rays will show the length, position, and shape of the tooth as well as the surrounding bone. This information is necessary and will allow Dr. Hertz to estimate the degree of difficulty of your procedure. A thorough exam will also be done to find out the exact reason why an extraction or extractions are necessary. Whether decay has reached deeply into the tooth, infection has destroyed a sizeable section of the tooth, or there just isn’t enough room for all the teeth in your mouth, you can be confident that our East Flatbush oral surgeon assesses your condition accurately and determines the appropriate course of treatment to take.
In many cases, our dentists recommend surgically removing impacted teeth that are only partially erupted because bacteria can enter around a partially erupted tooth and cause an infection. This infection can reach into the surrounding bone and will become quite serious. These impacted teeth will continue to try and break through the gums even when there isn’t enough room to accommodate them. The continued pressure can ultimately damage the roots of the nearby teeth. Not only preventing pain in the future, but extracting a tooth that is impacted can also prevent infection and damage to nearby teeth and bone. Well-trained and educated in oral sedation and nitrous oxide, the area surrounding your tooth will be anesthetized prior to the extraction. Our East Flatbush oral surgeon provides proper and successful treatment but your ultimate comfort is also a main goal.
