Our dental professionals offer bone grafting procedures at our state-of-the-art surgical facilities in Glenview, IL. Many patients who want dental implants must have a bone grafting procedure first to replace the bone beneath the dental arch.

Conditions That Can Lead to Dental Extractions:

Many conditions or injuries may require extraction for treatment. Some of these conditions are treatable or avoidable if caught early enough, but once too much damage has taken place, an extraction may become necessary to prevent more damage from occurring. Below are a few of the conditions that can lead to dental extraction:
Advances tooth decay
Gum disease
Tooth Loosening

No matter why you need a tooth extracted, our dental professionals are trained to remove teeth safely and efficiently.

Sinus Lift : Sinus lifts add bone above the upper molars to make sure the wall that divides the sinus and the oral cavity is thick enough for implant placement.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction In Glenview IL

If you or your child needs to have wisdom teeth removed in Glenview, IL, Family Dental is here to help. Most adults develop four — one in each corner of the mouth behind the second molars. Unfortunately, there is not usually enough room for these extra molars to grow without causing problems. Removing these molars early can help prevent infections, dental shifting, cysts, and even tumors.

Why have wisdom teeth removed?

Early wisdom teeth removal can prevent the following issues:
1. Force misdirection and crowding of healthy teeth
2. Impacted teeth damaging adjacent molars
3. Swelling, stiffness, and pain caused by gum disease
When is the best time for wisdom teeth extraction?
The right age for removal can differ for every patient. Having regular dental checkups once every six months is the best way to know when removal is necessary. In general early removal (between ages 14 and 20) can make the entire process easier for the following reasons:

  • Wisdom teeth are smaller at earlier stages, making removal and recovery easier.
  • Removing teeth before problems arise prevents pain and discomfort later.
  • Younger patients have better healing capabilities, which leads to faster recovery times.

Even if your teeth have fully grown, removal is always possible when you go to a skilled dentist.
