I recommend this place 100%! The staff was amazing, Vivian was amazing. So nice and caring! And Dr.Rolle is incredible as well. Had a referral to just get one tooth taken out and they ended up fixing my whole mouth including wisdom teeth. I’m terrified of the Oral Surgeon but they made me feel positive and safe! Please don’t even hesitate in coming here, I’d give them 10000 stars if I could!
can't think of a more inviting medical experience. All my friends and family are aware of how outstanding The Rolle team was from beginning to end. Not a lot of people look forward to dental appointments but we do and I'm so glad we found them! So thankful now and in the future #RollwithRolle
What better feeling when staff greets you by your name on the second visit, and not to mention a successful surgery! Back on track with living my best life, Thanks Dr. Rolle Jr.
To get dental implants, the patient has to be over 17-18 years. The procedure requires a fully grown jaw and that is why younger patients are not ideal for dental implants. However, there is no upper limit to getting dental implants. Even patients above 70 years receive it. If the jawbone is strong enough to hold the implants in place, the procedure can certainly be done.
You are supposed to use a brush for your cleaning your teeth after 24 hours of the surgery and extraction of your tooth. While doing so, avoid brushing against and applying pressure on any blood clots.
You can eat solid food after 24 hours of surgery. There is no clinical prohibition for that. However, you need to use discretion about choosing the food items as chewing extra crispy or hard food can cause pain at the spot of the extracted tooth.
No, you must not. Gauze is generally applied to the area from where the tooth is extracted. After the process, it is supposed to keep bleeding at check. But when you are drinking water or eating food, you must remove the gauze and then do it. Once you are done, place a new piece of gauze at the site of the wound.
Dental implants are done on the foundation that your healthy gum and jawbone provide. If you have an adequate bone that is strong enough to hold the implant, you can opt for it. You have to ensure that you don’t suffer from gum issues or periodontal disease either. A person having good and healthy general oral health can go for dental implants.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a broad range of procedure that is done for reconstruction of the face. It is a facial trauma surgery that is often done on the face, oral cavity, neck and head, jaw, and jawbones. This type of surgery also includes facial cosmetic surgery. It is prescribed for patients suffering from disorders affecting skeleton and facial complex. Also, if the patient has been in an accident that has affected the facial structure, then this can be done.
If the wisdom teeth are not coming out and remaining trapped in the gum, they should be surgically removed to reduce pain. The wisdom teeth can grow while crowding the teeth beside it. This can cause pain and discomfort and requires extraction. As it is placed in the far back of the mouth, it is difficult to clean with a brush and is thus prone to cavity and germs which can cause decay and pain. In such instances, you need to get it removed.
Firstly, the Oral Surgeon will inject anesthesia in the gum to numb your mouth. If you opt for general anesthesia, you will be put to sleep by inhaling gas through a mask. The Oral Surgeon will create an incision in the place to expose the tooth and bone. If the bone blocks the access, then it will be removed. The Oral Surgeon will remove the whole tooth now or in parts if needed. Now, the site will be cleaned of the debris. The procedure will end by stitching for healing even though it might not be needed in all the cases.
Most of the time, Oral Surgeons believe that the wisdom teeth need to be removed at a younger age before the roots and bones around it become stronger and fully formed. This can cause complications if removed later. If it is done at an early age, the recovery is faster too.
