As the only dental restoration that replaces tooth roots, dental implants are a life-changing solution. Dental implants provide unmatched stability, a natural appearance, and ongoing benefits to a patient’s oral health. As a dental implant dentist in Lincoln, Dr. Andrew R. Glenn is specially trained to handle even the most challenging dental implant cases. #OralSurgeon #DentalImplants #Dentist

For more than three decades, dental implants have transformed restorative dentistry by stabilizing dental prostheses in the same way as natural teeth roots. #DentalImplants #LincolnOralSurgeon

If a wisdom tooth doesn’t fully erupt from the gum line, the gum tissue surrounding the partially-erupted tooth can harbor excessive amounts of bacteria, and a serious infection can occur. In severe cases, a cyst or abscess (pocket of infection) can form around the tooth, and can damage the jawbone and teeth that surround it. Unlike routine single tooth extraction, #OralSurgery is often needed to successfully remove the molars. #OralSurgeon

The lower jawbone, or mandible, is hinged by two joints, called the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Located on either side of the face in front of each ear, the TMJs move in tandem when the mouth bites, chews, speaks, or otherwise opens and closes. #JawSurgeon

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves taking a small amount of healthy bone tissue and transferring it to build up bone density and mass in another area of the body. As we chew, our dental roots stimulate blood flow to the surrounding areas of the jawbone. #OralSurgeon #MaxillofacialSurgeon #JawSurgeon

Between the ages of 17 and 25, most individuals' third set of molars, more commonly known as #WisdomTeeth, erupt from the jaw. Unlike other teeth, these four molars are not necessary to proper oral function, and they are routinely extracted because of complications. #OralSurgeon #DentalSurgeon

The field of #OralSurgery, similar to general #dental care, focuses on the long-term health and function of a patient’s smile and oral structures. #OralSurgeon #DentalSurgeon

The lower jaw, or mandible, is a vital component of dental health and function. It controls the movement of the mouth, and in order to operate efficiently, it relies on symmetry and balance. Corrective jaw surgery can create improved balance. #MaxillofacialSurgeon #OralSurgeon

Advanced decay and infection can sometimes reach into the pulp of a tooth. Located at the center of each tooth, the pulp is a chamber that houses nerves and blood vessels. Once infected, these tissues can die, and an abscess, or pocket of infection, can form at the end of the tooth’s root, destroying gum tissue, jawbone, and surrounding teeth, as well as the tooth itself. #DentalSurgeon #OralSurgeon
