An oral exam is routinely performed by the dentist during the course of an initial comprehensive exam and regular check-ups.
An oral cancer exam refers to the identification and management of diseases pertaining to the maxillofacial and oral regions. The most serious of these pathologic changes (which may or may not be painful) is oral cancer, but there are also many other common pathologic problems.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth, generally making their appearance between the ages of 17 to 25. When they align properly, and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. The term “wisdom” stems from the idea that the molars surface at a time typically associated with increased maturity or “wisdom”.
In most cases, inadequate space in the mouth does not allow the wisdom teeth to erupt properly and become fully functional. If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to infection, damage to other teeth, and possibly cysts or tumors.
Horacek Dental is a multispecialty practice. Our goal is to keep our patients comfortable and to be able to meet the majority of their dental needs at our office.
Oral surgery is one of our specialties. Each case is different and when we meet you in our offices our dentists will evaluate your specific case and will offer you the information you need to help you make the best choice when deciding on oral surgery options.
At Horacek Dental, we do root canals in our offices. Years ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy you may save that tooth.
Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
Dental implants are an alternative to missing teeth. If you are missing a permanent tooth or have gaps in your smile, or wear dentures and experience some of the following problems:
- Slipping and clicking while talking?
- Irritation and pain when you chew?
- Fear of eating in public?
- Feeling or looking older than your age?
You may be a candidate for dental implants.
At Horacek Dental, orthodontic treatment is used to correct a “bad bite.”
Protruding, crowded or irregularly spaced teeth and jaw problems may be inherited. Thumb-sucking, losing teeth prematurely and accidents also can lead to these conditions.
Correcting the problem can create a nice-looking smile, but more important, orthodontic treatment results in a healthier mouth.
