Our Services: Dental Surgery Glendale Residents Can Count On
A common reason that patients contact LTS is to replace missing teeth. In some cases, teeth have been lost to disease, cavities, or erosion. In other cases, patients have sustained trauma that broke or knocked out the teeth.
Most of these situations can be addressed with dental implants. Glendale patients can replace the lost teeth with artificial teeth that look and feel natural. Implants utilize a post and crown system that is meant to serve as a long-term solution to missing teeth. Because of their design, dental implants provide greater strength and longevity than many alternatives, such as dental bridges or dentures. They also help to stimulate bone growth in the area of missing teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extraction is many patients’ first experience with dental surgery. Glendale patients may be interested in removing their wisdom teeth when they first begin to develop between the ages of 17 and 25. Other patients contact LTS after their wisdom teeth have erupted from the gums, causing discomfort, or damaged other teeth.
Lytle, Tate and Stamper develop a surgical approach in consultation with the patient, and on the day of the procedure, LTS doctors work in a fast and pain-free manner to remove the wisdom teeth. While some soreness may be expected following the surgery, patients typically recover fully within two to three days.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Sometimes, patients experience discomfort because their jaws do not meet correctly. This can cause their teeth to fit together improperly as well.
A corrective jaw procedure is a type of dental surgery that helps Glendale patients resolve this concern. Lytle, Tate and Stamper doctors use the treatment to reposition the jaws and to help teeth function properly. Another important benefit: corrective jaw surgery can give the patient’s face more proportionality and a more attractive smile.
