Yes. All 4 wisdom teeth or if you have extra teeth in addition to all 4 wisdom teeth. They all can be pulled or extracted on the same day.
f you have one wisdom tooth removed, it may have a shorter period of healing. If you have 4 wisdom teeth removed, it may take little bit longer to heal. The recovery is not going to take so much longer just because you have 4 wisdom teeth removed. For example, if you have one wisdom tooth removed, it may take a day or so to heal. If you have all-4 wisdom teeth removed, it may take only a couple of days or 3 days to heal.
There is a condition called dry socket, it is a type of inflammation or infection at the wisdom tooth site after the extraction. That is one of the reasons why the wisdom tooth hurt after 2 days. So it is a condition calleddry socket.
Yes. It is called Same Day implant or immediate implant. For example, a tooth#9 can be extracted and an implant can be done on the same day. The advantage of removing a tooth and putting an implant on the same day is a shorter healing period.
Yes.It is either all-on-4 or Same Day implant or immediate implant. It can be either done for a single tooth or can be done for a denture and it is done at Implants Gumcare.
For example, if a patient has multiple teeth. Let’s assume a complete set of top teeth and a complete set of bottom teeth and they need to have all of their teeth to be removed. After that, we can pre-measure the teeth and take a mold of their teeth before that being extracted.
The different types of dentures are snap-on teeth. For example, the teeth are dentures that snap on to the implant and they can be on all-on-4 or they could be dental bridges using dental implants.
It is very important that you have to follow through to make sure it is healing around the implant or the bone is healing around the implant. If the bone does not heal around the implant, the implant can become loose. So that is why it is important to have a postoperative follow up with the dentist or periodontist for a regular maintenance at clinics. Otherwise they can still get a gum infection and the implants could fail.
If you have an infection around the implant, and if you left untreated, the infection is just going to kill the implant and make the implant fail. So as soon as you realize that you may have some infection around the implant, you need to see a periodontist. If the infection is early, the infection can be treated using antibiotics or sometimes you may need a cleaning around the implant or sometimes you need a laser treatment around the implant to treat these types of infection around the implant.
