Tooth Removal

The loss of one or more teeth is a widely spread problem. There is a variety of reasons for tooth loss, for instance accidents, trauma, dental decay or diseases of the periodontium. If you might suffer under serious dental conditions that might require potential toot removal our specialists would gladly advice you about your medical options.

Reconstruction Dentistry

The visible part of the tooth, which stands out of the gum and is covered with enamel, is named the tooth crown.
In cases of extensive damage of the tooth structure, minimal invasive methods are not sufficient to stabilize the tooth permanently. In these cases the remaining tooth structure needs to be covered with a tooth crown for durable restoration.

Progressive dental decay, extensive bone loss or fracture of the tooth often doesn’t permit to preserve the remaining part of the tooth. The extraction of the tooth causes a gap in the dentition which is traditionally treated with a fixed dental prosthesis (dental bridge). To do so, the adjacent teeth to the gap require extensive tooth preparation to serve as retentive abutments for the dental bridge. In between an artificial tooth is placed.

In general tooth loss of some or several teeth has a significant impact on the quality of life of the patient. It reduces the ability to chew any type of food. Also the aesthetic appearance and social interaction is for many patients compromised. They feel ashamed because of their missing teeth and avoid smiling.Removable tooth restorations serve as substitute for lost natural teeth to regain function and aesthetics of the residual dentition. The term partial denture describes the replacement of a single tooth or several teeth often retained to the natural dentition. In cases, where all teeth are lost a full denture is indicated.

Wisdom teeth appear normally in the age between 17 and 24. In many cases the appearance of the wisdom teeth causes dental complications. Mainly due to the lack of space a proper alignment of wisdom teeth to the natural dentition is difficult. This can lead to dental crowding, misalignments, painful local inflammations or dental cysts. In most of these cases an early removal of the wisdom teeth is highly recommend.

Depending on the dental situation different surgical methods need to be applied: Fully erupted wisdom teeth are easier to remove by regular extraction methods. In cases where the wisdom teeth are still partially retained in the bone More intensive surgically methods are required.

Through progressive root growth and increasing density of the jaw bone, the removal becomes more difficult with an increasing age. For this reason the surgical removal should take place in adolescence. Therefore, misalignments or damages to persistent can be avoided due to early intervention. In general the bone and mucosal tissues heal quickly and uneventful.
