Ready to replace one or more lost teeth, with restorations designde to last a lifetime? Dr. Daniel J. Lyu, DDS FAGD specializes in permanent tooth restoration using dental implants!
Dental implants are known for their long-lasting and natural-looking results, using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous dental crowns can then be attached. Implants are natural-looking and function just like natural teeth. They're also built to last decades and allow our patients to eat without dietary restrictions.
To restore your complete smile, we offer single dental implants, full-mouth dental implants, implant-retained dentures, and more!
Periodontal disease can wreak havoc on the jaw bone, making it impossible to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. If you are suffering from this condition, our dentist may recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote bone growth in the jaw. With this specialized treatment, your jaw bone will begin to regenerate and strengthen itself enough to support a dental implant.
While we do everything we can to preserve the integrity of your natural smile, it's sometimes necessary to extract a tooth to protect your oral health and overall well-being. Our Tempe dentist may recommend a tooth extraction for the following reasons:
- A "baby" or deciduous tooth that is over retained (reluctant to fall out), severely decayed, or damaged
- A tooth that has extensive decay and is deemed non-restorable
- Teeth that are severely fractured or cracked and can not be restored
- Advanced gum disease that has significantly compromised the tooth's supporting tissues
- Poorly positioned, impacted, or decayed wisdom teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
Depending on your needs, our dentist can perform a simple or surgical extraction right here at our Tempe dental office, and will provide you with all the information you need to facilitate a speedy healing from home.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, which are also known as the third molars, are the last permanent teeth to develop in the oral cavity and the final ones to come into place. However, as is often the case, many wisdom teeth do not have sufficient room to erupt, are not developing correctly, develop extensive decay, or cause issues for the adjacent teeth and the surrounding tissues.
Although the extraction of wisdom teeth will sometimes be recommended for an older patient, the early removal of troublesome or potentially problematic third molars in young adults is more often the case. Our dentist will help you determine the best timing for your wisdom tooth procedure at your surgical consultation!
