Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.
When tooth removal is necessary, the procedure can be performed using local anesthesia or IV sedation.
If they are not removed, impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection, damage, disease or crowding of teeth.
Before dental implant surgery, bone grafting is sometimes necessary to supplement the bone mass of the patient’s jaw so that the implants can be anchored firmly.
Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to fit with jaws.
Among our most important functions is to educate our patients as to their treatment options. We will make recommendations allowing you to make the most educated oral health care decisions.
