Bone Grafts for Periodontal Patients

Periodontal disease can cause the jawbone to become too weak to support a dental implant. In cases like this, Dr. Narkhede will often recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote healthy bone growth and thicken your jawbone. Over time, your jawbone will naturally regenerate and become strong enough to support a dental implant.

When a tooth is too badly decayed to save, Dr. Narkhede will perform an extraction. An extraction may also be recommended if the tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth.

Once your tooth is removed, it is important to replace it in order to prevent drifting of other teeth. Dr. Narkhede is an esteemed provider for tooth replacements, and was an early adopter of dental implants in the 1980’s.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but some do. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, or in instances of gum disease, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best to pull the wisdom teeth before they jeopardize your smile as a whole.

We will take a panoramic radiograph of your entire jaw, so we can see the size, location, and developmental trajectory of the wisdom teeth in consideration. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but 3rd molars do not finish developing until closer to about 30 years of age.
