Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring function and aesthetics. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth without damaging adjacent teeth and do not slip out of place.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that emerge in the mid to late teens. There is often not enough room to accommodate these teeth, and they may grow in at an angle disrupting adjacent teeth and causing pain.
Advances in technology have made it possible to replace an entire arch of teeth with as few as four dental implants. All-on-4 dental implants hold replacement teeth firmly in place and help stimulate the jaw to prevent bone loss.
Teeth In A Day
With the Teeth In A Day procedure, you can leave the office with a full set of teeth on the same day that your dental implants are placed. The implants are strategically inserted at an angle in areas where the bone is the strongest to support replacement teeth and reduce recovery time.
Missing teeth can cause bone resorption and make the placement of dental implants challenging. Bone loss can also affect facial structure and appearance. Bone grafting rebuilds strong, healthy jawbones to promote better oral health.
From damage to gum disease to preparation for orthodontic treatment, there are many reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary. Removing problem teeth is typically a relatively quick procedure and can improve overall oral health and comfort. Anesthesia can make it a painless process.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma harnesses the power of the body’s own cells to promote healing and tissue regeneration. Blood is separated to consolidate platelets and growth factors which are then applied during bone grafting procedures to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response.
For dentures to fit properly, pre-prosthetic surgery may be needed to smooth or reshape the bone, remove excess gum tissue, or reduce the size of the bone ridge. Minor surgery is common to prepare the mouth for denture insertion and improve overall comfort and function.
Oral health includes more than just the teeth and gums. It involves all the skin in the mouth. Oral pathology is used to evaluate changes in color or thickness of the lining of the mouth, sores, chronic sore throat, and difficulty chewing. Regular exams can help catch abnormalities early.
A wide range of sedation options are available to maximize comfort and reduce anxiety during dental procedures, whether you are undergoing a regular cleaning or major surgery. Oral surgeons are trained in safely administering anesthesia aligned with your needs and preferences.
3D imaging allows for a more comprehensive view of the teeth and bones to assist with diagnosis and treatment planning. Cone beam CT scanning creates a crystal-clear digital image with less radiation exposure than traditional scans and improved visualization.
While wisdom teeth are the most commonly impacted teeth, canine teeth can also fail to properly erupt. The gum may be lifted to expose the tooth and help guide it into place. Oral surgery and orthodontic treatment may be combined to naturally bring the tooth down, or it may require extraction.
There is a thin layer of bone that separates the sinuses from the upper teeth. Tooth removal can cause this bone to thin even further making dental implant placement difficult. A sinus lift can help restore bone quality and quantity to securely anchor dental implants in place.
