The team at My Dentist St Leonards are highly experienced in a range of treatments associated with facial trauma and injury to the dental structure. Accidents can happen in an instant and can lead to missing teeth, chipped teeth and impacted teeth. You want to know that your dental surgeon has the know-how to deal with these emergencies.
At our dental practice in North Sydney, we specialise in Wisdom Teeth Removal, Dental Implants, Bone Grafts, Tissue Grafts, Sinus Lifts and other surgical treatments.
Wisdom teeth removal is a very common procedure as more and more people opt to have their wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth can become very problematic as they start erupting, causing pain, inflammation, infection, cysts and bad breath. They pose a threat to other teeth, and can cause damage and displacement.
Impacted wisdom teeth can also push up against neighboring teeth and cause cavities and infection, which may lead to the need for neighboring teeth to be removed.
At My Dentist St Leonards, we perform wisdom teeth removals. We can also conduct this surgery using intravenous sedation, also known as ‘sleep dentistry’, which allows you to relax completely.
Dental Implants require you to have a certain amount of bone to support the structure. If, in your initial assessment, we find that you do not have enough bone, we may have to perform a bone grafting procedure. The bone grafting technique we use is highly advanced and it uses your own stem cells in addition to bone regeneration therapy. Alternatively, we also offer synthetic bone, and animal bone in our bone grafting procedures.
If you do not have enough tissue required for specific surgeries, or your lack of gum tissue is posing as a problem to your dental health, we are able to perform a Periodontal Plastic Surgery (PPS). This procedure involves a thin layer of gum tissue being removed from the palate, or other site, and being transplanted to the affected area.
At My Dentist St Leonards, we’re proud to be at the forefront of the advanced, extraordinary procedure that uses stem cells and blood plasma in regenerative dentistry. ‘Regenerative dentistry’ has achieved remarkable results in recent years and we are gratified to be able to offer this service to our patients.
The modern technique uses the patient’s own blood cells to fast-track the regeneration process of both bone and tissue with minimum risk of infection. We make use of bone grafts to enhance your jawbone to create a better foundation for dental implants. We also use bone grafts to regenerate bones in cases such as wisdom tooth removal, where you may suffer a loss of bone or tissue.
Regenerative dentistry essentially allows for dental professionals to use platelets, stem cells and growth factors from patients’ bloodstreams in a variety of procedures, which allows for massive success in healing times and regenerative techniques. The reason for this success is that both platelets and growth factors are key proteins needed for healing acceleration.
Additionally, we can also use a specialised serum made from your own blood to assist on the healing and cleaning of wounds.
