The staff of ToothEmporium Inc. provide general oral surgery. Dr. Braymen has over 35 years experience ranging from simple toothextractions to wisdom teeth extractions. We pride ourselves on making sure that our patients are comfortable and pain free throughout the procedure, including post-op. We are proud to serve people of all ages.
We provide a wide range of anesthetic options depending on the type of procedure being performed and how nervous a patient may be. The safety and comfort of our patients is our highest priority and every option will be discussed in detail prior to treatment.
Our third set of molars, which are more commonly called our “wisdom teeth” rarely have enough room to fully emerge into the mouth without crowding other teeth and causing an extreme amount of pressure in the head and neck area. They also very commonly can cause severe pain due to infections, tumors, and cysts. If they are not removed there can be problems with proper bite alignment of the teeth, cause constant headaches, collect unwanted bacteria and food, and raise the chance of having decay and gum disease.
Wisdom teeth can be removed safely and comfortably saving patients from years of pain and discomfort and acute dangerous oral infections. Early evaluation and intervention is the key to reducing the risk of complications. By using the proper diagnostic radiography, Dentists are able to identify if a patient’s third molars will be a problem or not. This is one of the many things that will be discussed in the initial visit without professional dentists and put in a treatment plan if necessary work is needed.
Teeth that are very badly damaged due to trauma or decay may be too difficult to restore and impossible to save and in the end must be removed. Tooth Emporium Inc uses the most modern techniques to ensure that this is done safely and as comfortably as possible. Removal of the third molars is the most common form of extraction, however patients need this done if a tooth or several teeth have been severely affected by decay, a patient has advanced periodontal disease, has an extra tooth or cyst most likely identified in an x-ray, or experienced a traumatic accident that caused a tooth to break in a way that the dentist cannot restore it properly.
For people with a missing tooth or even several missing teeth, dental implants can seem like a miracle. They are a wonderful tooth replacement option and are less frustrating than dealing with bridges and dentures. Once in place they maintain normal jaw functioning and look very natural.
If you are missing teeth and are tired of having loose dentures, dental implants may be a great option for you. we can coordinate with an oral surgeon in determining the best way to move forward to give you the best outcome functionally and cosmetically. If you don’t currently have a primary dentist, we can certainly refer you to a highly qualified one in Council Bluffs to meet all your dental needs.
Oral Lesions – Cancer Screening
Most people are not aware that oral cancer occurs more frequently and is more dangerous than other forms of cancer such as cervical cancer. When found at an early stage it can be easily treated, however if left undetected it can metastasize easily into the lymph nodes of the neck making it a very hard cancer to fight. Also if one has had oral cancer in the past that person is twenty times more likely to become ill with another form of cancer.
If a patient notices or feels something odd inside their mouth it is important to see a dentist immediately for a complete examination. A tiny piece of tissue from the area should be removed and sent for analysis by a pathologist to determine if the lesion is a benign tumor or cancerous. If it is diagnosed and treated early one can avoid major surgical procedures and it may even save a patient's life!
