The Ideal Age for Wisdom Teeth Removal
The timing of your wisdom extraction is critically important to ensuring an optimally comfortable experience. As we age, our roots quickly harden and mature – in fact, a teenager’s jawbone is considerably softer than that of someone in their 20’s. When a mature tooth root is pulled it can potentially damage the nerve below the tooth causing numbness. With more than three decades of experience, Dr. Grellner can create a wisdom tooth extraction plan for you that reduces discomfort and complications, while expediting healing.
QuickRecover(™) IV General Anesthesia
Whether it’s you or a loved one who needs to have oral surgery, you want it to be a comfortable, anxiety-free and safe experience. When choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, you certainly want a surgeon who is skilled surgically, but isn’t the quality, sophistication and safety of the anesthetic just as important?
While there are many different methods of anesthesia being offered, from taking a long-acting sleeping pill to a variety of IV anesthetic drugs, the best and safest sleep is one that can be adjusted up or down to meet your individual needs and can be stopped when it is no longer needed.
Sometimes a tooth has suffered such extensive damage from decay or trauma that it cannot be saved. If you need a tooth extraction, rest assured that Dr. Grellner can perform one for you that reduces any discomfort to an absolute minimum. His gentle and methodical surgical approach keeps your comfort in mind, and minimizes recovery times. He can replace lost teeth with dental implants.
Not only did he satisfactorily complete his specialty training in oral and maxillofacial surgery while in the USAF, but also he invested additional time and effort later to successfully pass two board-certification exams: American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology.
If you have suffered tooth loss, trauma, or a congenital jaw defect, you may have a weakened jawbone. To fortify the jawbone, a bone graft may be necessary. Dr. Grellner has the skills and expertise to perform a bone graft that will efficiently prepare your jaw for placing dental implants. His highly specialized technique (called a ridge split) can minimize the risks involved in this delicate surgical process. Patients can also enjoy a quicker recovery time, so they are on the road to receiving their dental implants sooner.
Are you missing teeth, or have dentures that slip out of place? You might benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jawbone. Since the dental implant serves the function of a tooth root, they provide stable and dependable support for a crown (that looks like a tooth). Dr. Grellner can perform a dental implant procedure to replace teeth, restoring the balance of your smile and bite. Implants have the added benefit of potentially lasting a lifetime.
Dentures can also be affixed securely to implants, elminating the worry about your dentures slipping out of place, or compromising your speech.
