Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical intervention performed to eliminate one or more wisdom teeth.
These teeth are the last set of permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of the mouth, both at the top and bottom. When a wisdom tooth does not have enough room to grow, it becomes impacted, which can lead to dental problems like pain, infection, or other complications. In such cases, extraction becomes necessary and may be carried out by either a dentist or an oral surgeon.
In certain instances, dentists or oral surgeons may recommend wisdom tooth extraction as a preventive measure to avoid possible future issues, even if impacted teeth are not currently causing any problems.
Apicoectomy is a dental procedure carried out when a root canal fails to eliminate an infection.
If the infection does not go away after a root canal or resurfaces after treatment, an apicoectomy is usually the next step.
One of the reasons why a root canal may be unsuccessful is because there are several nerves that may contain infected tissue, making it challenging to eliminate all of the infection. During an apicoectomy, the tip of the tooth root is removed, and the area is filled or replaced with bone to prevent further infection.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a sliding hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull, with one joint located on each side of your jaw.
TMJ disorder can lead to pain in the jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. There are several possible causes of TMJ disorder, such as genetics, arthritis, or jaw injury. People who experience jaw pain often tend to clench or grind their teeth, a condition known as bruxism.
While the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders could be temporary, self-managed care or nonsurgical treatments can provide relief. However, if you experience persistent pain or tenderness in your jaw, or you have difficulty opening or closing your jaw entirely, it is essential to contact our office. Our My Ashburn Dentist specialists can discuss the possible causes and treatments available for your problem.
