Everything you need to know about Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are located in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, they erupt as the third and final set of molars. Wisdom teeth typically erupt in your late teens and early 20's. It is common to have four wisdom teeth but some people have more, fewer, or even none at all. They don’t usually cause any pain until they start to become impacted, X-rays can help determine if your wisdom teeth are likely to cause you problems. In teenagers the roots are still forming so it is easier to extract them out at this age. Waiting until the roots are fully formed can make removing your wisdom teeth a more complicated procedure.

What is involved in the placement of my dental implant?

Dental implant treatment is often performed with a team.

The team consists of a restorative dentist who will ultimately fabricate the prosthesis or teeth that are to be replaced; 

and an experienced surgeon who will place the dental implants in the jaw bone. Careful evaluation of the patient and meticulous planning is essential in providing predictable and satisfactory results.

The treatment consists of 3 phases. The first phase of treatment is the placement of the implant (the root shaped, titanium screw that is commonly referred to as the 'fixture') by the surgical specialist. The second phase of the implant treatment is performed after an appropriate period of healing. Bone heals slowly. A period of approximately 3-6 months is required for the process of osseointegration to be complete. The second phase of treatment consists of the placement of abutments or small metal posts to the implanted fixtures. The third phase of treatment consists of the restorative phase. In this phase the new replacement teeth are fabricated and placed on the implants and abutments.
