I had a cracked tooth, and I was in a lot of pain, and I needed to be seen right away. I was seen right away, and I had the tooth removed, and I had bone grafting, and a few months later, I had an implant. I was definitely nervous for the extraction because nobody really wants one.

Whether you have lost a tooth due to disease, extraction, or trauma, dental implant placement is often the best restorative solution. Dental implants help ensure long-term health and aesthetics of the mouth. If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants may be the right choice for you. Each dental implant is designed for you and offers a stable prosthesis that feels, looks, and functions like the rest of your natural teeth. A dental implant is a medical-grade titanium screw that is placed right into the vacant socket where the lost tooth used to be and naturally fuses with the jaw bone after it is placed. This offers permanent tooth root replacement while the custom crown gives you the look and feel of a natural tooth.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Pitrowski and Dr. Goldberg offer you the appropriate type and number of implants specific to your particular needs. If you have questions or want to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants, please contact Coastal Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center at (805) 489-7600 to make the consultation appointment.
Your third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, develop and grow into the very back of the jaw during late adolescence or early adulthood. While the development of wisdom teeth is normal, these molars are four additional teeth in the mouth where space is limited. When wisdom teeth have enough space and are able to align properly with healthy gum tissue, they do not create any problems or require removal. However, the average mouth is most often not large enough to accommodate the extra teeth, and they must be extracted.
Wisdom teeth can lead to a host of oral health problems including chronic pain, infection, and disease affecting your jaws and other teeth. Early evaluation and treatment predictably result in a superior outcome. After a comprehensive exam and x-rays, Drs. Goldberg and Pitrowski can evaluate the condition of the wisdom teeth and make a professional recommendation for treatment specific to your needs.
Patients experiencing extensive tooth loss may find an affordable solution offering full replacement of both function and aesthetics quite elusive. Instead of replacing missing teeth with traditional options like temporary dentures or removable partial dentures, Drs. Goldberg and Pitrowski can place four specialized dental implants in the upper or lower jaw. These dental implants will then support a fixed bridge or fixed non-removable denture, offering a complete full-arch replacement of permanent, strong, fully functioning teeth.Many patients choose the full-arch replacement procedure because of the vast benefits they experience, such as a significant cost savings, a quicker replacement procedure, and reduced recovery time. We encourage you to contact one of our office locations in Santa Maria, CA, or Arroyo Grande, CA, for an initial consultation and meet with Dr. Pitrowski or Dr. Goldberg to discuss your treatment options.
