Sometimes the true condition of your teeth cannot be determined by looking at the surface. Instead, your dental hygienist needs x-rays to tell them the health of your roots, gums and teeth. Dental x-rays take pictures of the bones, teeth and even soft tissue, allowing them to quickly diagnose cavities, gum disease and bone loss.
If you’ve been putting off dental work for years out of fear of pain, anxiety or embarrassment about the condition of your teeth, fear no more.

Oral surgery focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and defects of the mouth and dental structures. Oral surgery can apply to any treatment or procedure performed in the mouth that involves our Parkside dentist repairing, extracting, re-aligning, removing, implanting, restoring or reducing pain resulting from issues with the teeth, gums, mouth or jaw.
While healthy and properly positionedwisdom teeth can be a valuable asset to your mouth, problems may develop that require their removal. Our professionalTroy wisdom teeth dentist will work with you to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
Wisdom teeth are the last molars — also called third molars — which develop on each side of your jaw. These teeth usually emerge in the back of your mouth between the ages of 16-20. When the jaw isn’t large enough to accommodate your wisdom teeth, they can become impacted (unable to come in or misaligned). Wisdom teeth may grow sideways, emerge only part way through the gum or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
