Wisdom Teeth Extractions:
Wisdom teeth extraction is a procedure you most likely can’t avoid. It is, in most cases, necessary to remove wisdom teeth to prevent damaging your smile aesthetically.
There are multiple ways to go through this procedure. During your yearly check up, your dentist can view in your X-Rays the placement of your wisdom teeth and can recommend which extraction method works best for your.
The procedure could require full sedation depending on what you chose and will take up to two hours. Therefore, expect swelling and difficulty chewing for a few days after. In all cases, your dentist will provide you with pain killers and a list of food (mostly liquids) that will help with the swelling.

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in order to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly.
Socket preservation or alveolar ridge preservation is a procedure to reduce bone loss after tooth extraction. A platelet rich fibrin membrane containing bone growth enhancing elements is placed in the wound or a bone grafting material or scaffold is placed in the socket of an extracted tooth at the time of extraction. Then, the socket is directly closed with stitches or covered with a non-resorbable or resorbable membrane and sutured.
A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation, where the bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose.
