Wisdom Teeth & Bone Grafting

Two common oral surgeries offered by Dr. Kotecha and her associates of Dentistry On 10 are wisdom teeth extraction and bone grafting.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of a patient’s mouth. They typically begin to erupt or cause problems when a patient is a teenager or young adult. Wisdom teeth can cause gum tenderness, pain, and swelling failing to erupt properly. Even when they do erupt through the gum line, they can be extremely difficult to keep clean, and can increase a patient’s risk for periodontal disease. Many dentists examine a patient’s teeth and complete x-rays to determine if wisdom teeth need to be extracted. This procedure is done with proper anesthetics and sedation. Patients can ask questions about the procedure beforehand and have the opportunity to learn more about what to expect before, during, and after the treatment.

Bone Grafting

Patients who have lost bone structure due to tooth loss may want to consider restorative options such as dental implants. However, dental implants require that a patient have sufficient bone underneath the gum tissue to hold the implant in place. When patients are considering this restoration but are unable to do so due to lack of bone, a grafting may be completed. This can help rebuild the bone to the point where dental implants can be successfully placed and used to restore a tooth or stabilize a full denture. The entire process between the bone graft and the placement of a dental implant may happen over the course of several months. Dr. Kotecha and her associates complete x-rays to determine one’s need for bone grafting, and discusses the entire bone augmentation process with a patient well before they undergo the surgical procedure.

Dr. Kotecha and her associates offer a variety of general and cosmetic dentistry procedures and are happy to provide care for new and existing patients. If you are a patient who is considering dental care in the Mississauga, Ontario area, contact Dentistry On 10 to schedule your initial consultation appointment and meet Dr. Kotecha and her caring, compassionate staff.

General Dentistry Testimonial

Hi, before I come to see Doctor Rina and her amazing staff, I was actually someone that had not gone to the dentist for a while because I was so stressed and very worried and anxious about it.
I had been recommended about her from other people and kept in the back of my mind. I finally made the call and from the first call the reception was absolutely amazing and made me feel at home. I let them know right away, I was really anxious. This is when I came in to see the doctor, Doctor Rena was amazing. She went through everything with me. I wouldn’t even smile when I walked in, she noticed I wouldn’t smile. I had had temporary caps on my front teeth for a really, really long time, so she took me through what her options were and it wasn’t good enough that it was just like here’s ABC. She wanted to make sure that we had gone too. A specialist to make sure mines a little bit more, more, issues. Having had root canal treatments on my front teeth and I went ahead, came back and again she sat down with me and gave me all of my options. What’s best for me? What can we do? What can we expect long term? Everyone here is so nice and warm they from the time I walked in for all my appointments they were all. How are you, Paula? How’s everything going? And you just feel like you’re part of a family and made me really feel at ease within a month and a half, She had me smiling like I am now. It was great, my friends, my family, my work people. They all notice exactly just how much more confident I am that I can smile. And honestly, it’s with her and because of the team here. And I found a place I can come back to and now really put my dental health as a priority. So, I definitely recommend her if there’s anything that you’ve left or you just need help on or you’re just looking for a place that you can come and feel comfortable. I definitely say, come to see Doctor Rina.
