Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery Available At Pearl Dental Care:

  • Dental extractions: Drs. Gary and Scott Pearl and Dr. Adam Abel offer two types of dental extractions for patients, including simple and surgical. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that have erupted through the gum line, while surgical extractions require opening into the gum tissue and removal of some bone to remove the tooth. Simple extractions require less recovery time than surgical extractions, and both are done with proper sedation and anesthetics.
  • Wisdom teeth removal: Impacted wisdom teeth are a common problem that our patients face. The wisdom teeth are also referred to as the third molars and develop in the late teen years or early adulthood. If left untreated, they can cause a host of other dental problems. Wisdom teeth can be painful in the teeth themselves or the gum around them (pericoronitis). Tooth decay can develop in a hard to access partly erupted wisdom tooth which can lead to pain or infection. An incompletely erupted/ partially impacted wisdom tooth can also lead to a plaque trap and cause a cavity in the adjacent tooth. At Pearl Dental Care we can remove your wisdom teeth and help you avoid complications. We have experience in removing both erupted wisdom teeth and impacted wisdom teeth with simple and surgical dental extractions performed right in our office. We used 3D CBCT to plan extractions that may be in close proximity to nerves. When necessary coronectomy treatment can be performed. Wisdom teeth removal is successfully achieved in-office by our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Adam Abel, DMD, MD. 
  • Bone grafting: Bone grafting is a procedure that is sometimes necessary to rebuild lost bone in the jaw that may be due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or trauma. Our dentists have the experience and expertise to provide you with the best possible outcome and can provide bone grafting to prepare for the placement of dental implants in the future. Bone grafting can be performed at the time of tooth removal or afterward to increase the amount of bone for a dental implant. Bone grafting can also be performed around a dental implant that has lost its bone support or around teeth suffering from periodontitis. Dr. Adam Abel is an expert at ridge augmentation, socket preservation, and sinus lifts for the placement of dental implants. 
  • Pathology management: Dr. Adam Abel is an expert at management of oral pathology and can diagnose pathological lesions, perform biopsies, and remove lesions when necessary. We work in conjunction with oral pathology labs at Yale and UConn to assist with care. 
  • Trauma: Trauma to the teeth or jaws can require a wide range of treatment ranging from simple repairs to advanced care. Injuries are best treated as soon as possible to the time of injury. Our tools for managing trauma include 3D CBCT to evaluate fractures, splinting teeth, suturing lacerations, root canal therapy, and restorative dentistry.
